Probably Exhibited: Twenty-Five Years of Painting, Fraymart Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, from April 29 - May 30, 1950 (see Reuter, Herman, Varied Fields Covered by Biberman, Los Angeles Evening Citizen News, May 6, 1950 – “Between these opposites is work that points to restless experimentalism. Some canvases show social consciousness at work, others a king of mystic symbolism. The titles tend to classify them. ‘The Survivors’ . . . in one category and . . . ‘Death of an Idea’ . . . in the other.”)
