The Artist

And His Art

Early Years 

The New York Times - October 29, 1944 - by Howard DeVree


The first one-man show at the Modern Art Studio, 637 Madison Avenue, is devoted to portraits, figures, landscapes and still-life by Frank Ross, who came to this country in 1937.  Judging by comparison with one early canvas, his work has warmed up considerably.  Cubist and certain impressionist influences are to be found in his work.  Ross is certainly not afraid of color.  One might conclude that he is still experimenting and that his final style and direction are yet to be worked out.  But there is vitality in his work and esthetic problems as such obviously have weight with the artist.
