Ink on paper, 1949. Signed, Harari, and dated, 49, lower right. 229x305 mm; 9x12 inches.

Hananiah Harari worked in the mural division of the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (FAP)(WPA). There is no record Harari was awarded any mural projects.

Hananiah Harari's works move freely from abstraction to representational forms. In the forming of the American Abstract Artists group, he and other members such as Carl Holty pushed back against those demanding that the future of Modernism rest firmly in Non-Objective painting.
