“Lurie’s art has the distinction of knowing about both freedom and imprisonment, and it is no wonder his work differed from that of the same generation on these shores,” Schmerler wrote in a catalogue for the Bleed Show, 1969, a retrospective exhibition mounted in 1997 at the Janos Gat Gallery in New York. “Most American artists of the ’40s were fresh out of art school. Lurie was fresh out of Buchenwald.”
