"Arthur Holman's abstract paintings of the 1950s used regular, abbreviated brush strokes-almost a kind of pointillism-to build subtly modulated surfaces of extremely close-valued colors." Holman's abstractions were based upon impressions of nature: "natural light, natural spaces. In the 1960s and 1970s he turned to more clearly defined, visionary landscapes bathed in radiant colors and reminiscent of the paintings of Bonnard." (Albright)
