*Engel, Jules “Yellow Fall,” Notes:
Colorful abstract oil by Jules Engel on canvas with gold toned artist frame. Artist titled: “Yellow Fall,” 1960. Artist signed with "Top," mark.  Retains period Art Dealer decal on rear stretcher: Esther Robles 665 North La Cienega, Los Angeles.
Head-like form with central cloud composition under gestural swaths of autumn colors: seafoam-green, ochre, black and white echo title.
Style and sensibility hearkens back to the heroic fifties abstract expressionism of which it is a late example-it's date of execution spilling it into the next decade.
Balanced against the slash and burn gesture is a striking symphony of romantic autumn tones.
