"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)

Thomas Albright, Art in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945-1980
