From the exhibition Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery:

Jack Youngerman studied art in Paris before moving to Coenties Slip, in Lower Manhattan, where he lived among a supportive community of artists. Through geometry, abstraction, and bold color, Youngerman explores the relationship between figure and ground. Youngerman’s work has been widely exhibited and collected; August 2, 1968 came to the Gallery through the collection of Richard Brown Baker, but the Vogels purchased his work as well.
