The Terrace BY CHARLES LOCKE
THE LOCALE OF The Terrace is the foot of Montague Street, in Brooklyn.
This conversation piece brings into sharper focus some of the qualities of .ni.
The forms, again, are sculptural, and again the human note is an echo of the past.
“This print,” the artist has said, “is in no sense a portrait.”
That is correct. Here, rather, is a point of view that brings together,
with some nostalgia perhaps, an association of forms in “an attempt,” as Locke says,
to translate the atmosphere of such a place into a design suitable to my purposes.

And these purposes, whatever their incidental motivations,
are overwhelmingly and satisfactorily esthecic.
Locke has a largeness of design and an understanding of the business of
organizing the elements of a picture that unify and invest with
power the rather unsensational materials of his inventions.
