About This Image
Signed "Fitz" in pencil on mount
This photomontage was included in the exhibition "O Say Can You See", at the Berkshire Museum, 1989.
Fitz's oeuvre from the 1920s and '30s, was highly prized at the time it was made, but it has since been grossly undervalued by collectors. A one-man exhibition at MoMA in 1986 contextualized him within the Modernist tradition. Writing on the show in the New York Times, critic Andy Grundberg made note of what he felt was an unintended, but "inherent Surrealism" in much of the work.
