This exhibition brings together for the first time, Harold Klunder’s ongoing series of works on paper, the Schoenberg Drawings. These works, inspired by the Austrian modernist composer, Arnold Schoenberg, exhibit Klunder’s sensitivity to parallel artistic and musical aesthetics. Similar in style and technique to Klunder’s large canvases, the nineteen works included in the the exhibition demonstrate his concern that art “has to be as powerful as the reality it reflects”
