"Harry Holtzman

is represented in this Collection by two works: his sculpture and one of his Neo-plastic paintings.

His Sculpture which is most unusual, is a fine expression of his Neo-plasticism, for he had not only the good fortune but the intellicence to appreciate the great contribution which Mondrian made.

It was his privilige to stand by Mondrian during the last period of his life, and to give him that freedom which he had always sought but which the changing times had made precarious.

It is great satisfaction  that the circle around Mondrian during the last years of his life in New York is completed, and that the Collection of the Societe Anonyme can include the three artists who have carried on his philosophy, not only through their painting but also through their teaching.
