<P>From the exhibition<EM> Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery</EM>:</P>
<P>The Vogels collected works by Don Hazlitt during the 1970s and 1980s, when his art began to be widely exhibited in New York. In this untitled drawing, the artist explores spatial depth across a two-dimensional surface. The charcoal lines that cut across the paper in sharp diagonals and the rapidly drawn brushstrokes in oil paint imbue the work with a sense of vitality. The Vogels bought Hazlitt's work, which Dorothy describes as "beautiful but with a bite," directly from the artist's studio. <BR></P>
