From the press release:

George McNeil (1908 - 1995) was a pioneer Abstract Expressionist and had over forty solo exhibitions during his lifetime.
The exhibition is comprised of a group of sixteen works that date from between 1957 and 1969. This period demonstrates an important transitional period for McNeil from his signature multi layered abstractions to a growing interest in figurative associations.

Oil Painting said…
Though it is very hard to say more about oil painting but the installation view provided the way to understand this and made more meaningful.
The smaller framed pieces, circa: 65 - 69, look to have real heart and soul, i could enjoy looking at one of those everyday.
