Cow1972 by Albert York

He often painted cows. They’re the subjects of four works in the exhibition. In one, sketchily rendered women in Victorian-era dress appear. It looks as if they had wandered in from another painting. What was it about cows? Maybe he was drawn to them because his hero Ryder painted them. What Mr. York took from the visionary Ryder, however, was something more profound: the idea that painting could be a kind of daydreaming, an activity subject not to the laws of empirical reality but only to those of the imagination.
