48 x 34 in.

A close friend and student of the influential modernist Hans Hofmann, Feinstein was known for his energetic, colorful abstract paintings. He exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, and Provincetown, Massachusetts, and participated in the dialogues in the arts that surrounded Abstract Expressionism. A graduate of Central High School and the Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art (now the University of the Arts), Feinstein directed classes at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and taught at Chestnut Hill Academy (now Springside Chestnut Hill Academy). After 1950—and for over forty years—he taught privately in New York, Princeton, Toronto, Cape Cod and in Philadelphia at his studio on Chancellor Street near Rittenhouse Square.
