Neuman’s early works (1949-1952) are a direct result from his experiences in California and, in particular, from receiving his MFA from California College of the Fine Arts and from spending time with Bay Area artists. During this period, Neuman explored the world of abstract expressionism through painting, printmaking and large scale drawings.
