"They [the paintings in this exhibition] represent a collection, a dealer's collection, of many times this size [belonging to and arranged by J. B. Neumann]. And they were bought, in most cases, direct from the artist at the time they were painted . . . this group of about forty pictures (which could as well have been four hundred) contains none of the universally popular names around which most museum shows of American art are fashioned. It is neither a conclusive nor an historical chronological selection" (J.B. Neumann, From Realism to Abstraction).
