"Walls of Color" has been organized by Kenneth E. Silver, a professor of modern art at New York University and an adjunct curator at the Bruce, which is a short train ride from Manhattan and a very brief stroll from the town's Metro-North station. The show has limited space, but Mr. Silver has counterintuitively placed in its midst a roughly half-scale re-creation of the 711 elevator bank, papered with a full-color digital image of the mosaic. It almost literally jostles visitors. But that doesn't stop the work from detonating in mind and eye. Mr. Silver has assembled about 30 studies on paper and canvas, along with architectural plans and photographs, and a handful of late paintings.

On audio, Mr. Silver presents his thinking on the mosaics. First, His studies for the mosaics led him away from easel painting and spurred larger, more ambitious works.
These elements, which exemplify his theory of spatial "push-pull," are seen here in two charming all-red paintings (Mr. Silver rightly connects them to Matisse's "Red Studio," painted in 1911).

Ken Silver, a professor of modern art at New York University and the show's curator, calls Hofmann's mural work his forgotten legacy. He knows this from personal experience.

Silver said that when an easel painter begins to create murals, the artist not only has to enter into a collaborative process with the architect, but also has to adjust the creation of the art to recognize a differing viewpoint by the observer of the art.
Especially formative, Silver said, is Hofmann's usage of mosaic tiles.
