Luce Center Label

Alfred McAdams worked as an architect, and many of his paintings from the 1970s include precisely rendered images of buildings. In Concerto Grosso the architecture and the woman's clothing recall the first two decades of the twentieth century. At first glance, the painting appears to show an everyday scene of a middle-aged woman standing in front of her house.
