". . . On view at Wolfs are numerous paintings by Carl Gaertner, Clyde Singer, William Sommer, August Biehle, Frank Wilcox, Abel Warshawsky, Ora Coltman, Clarence Carter, George Adomeit, Clara Deike, Elsa Vick Shaw, Raphael Gleitsman, Paul Travis and Hughie Lee-Smith; plus ceramics or sculptures by Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, Walter Sinz, Max Kalish, Alexander Blazys, Emilie Scrivens, R.G. Cowan and William Zorach. . . .
"Artists such as Biehle and Schreckengost were influenced in the early 20th century by contemporary innovations such as the Cubist style unleashed in America by the 1913 Armory Show in New York.
"Biehle's radiantly powerful 'Brandywine Road,' a landscape painted that same year, turns a scene of sunlight bursting through clouds over farm country into an arrangement of geometric forms and rays of energy that look very much up to the minute."
