Richard Florsheim (1916-1979) was both a great painter and printmaker. His nearly 4 decade career explored issues as varied as war and self-identity. But he became known especially for his landscapes—urban, industrial, and pastoral. This exhibition presents a large selection of his work, recently acquired by the Polk Museum of Art, from 1940 through the 1970s.
