During the 1940s, Sam Feinstein pushed beyond naturalism toward a deeper expression of nature's spirit. In this expressionistic work, a contorted figure strains upward in anguish, its form purposefully exaggerated for dramatic impact. Feinstein's canvases often portrayed suffering, sorrow, and anxiety during the WWII era.
