A sweep of bold colors and jagged interlocking forms captures the disruptive character of the 1960s at home and abroad. Painted during the period in which the United States severed diplomatic relations with Cuba, Youngerman's abstract composition derives its title from the 26th of July Movement that had brought Fidel Castro to power.
