Great artists are often “discovered” after they have left us. It has been true of the Masters and is true among those 20th Century painters that we have come to love and respect.
While Adrienne Goldberg may not yet have arrived at that Pantheon of artistic luminaries of this new century, she was a talented and innovative painter whose work was a pleasure to experience. She was also loved and respected by those who knew her well.
She left us last week and both her husband Larry, a lawyer and an important member of the Downtown political community, as well as her daughter Alexis, will cherish the memories of a wonderful, warm, loving wife and mother whom they respected and loved.
So that we may all appreciate what we have lost, take the time to enjoy her art.
Her art was special, as she was special.
May she rest in peace.
