Also referred to as “Vertical Abstraction in Yellow” – see ES Scrapbook; Slobodkina’s sister Tamara requested that her sister paint a large work in beige tones which Tamara could hang over her faux fireplace in her 68th Street apartment in NYC. “Monochrome In Beige” was the first in a series of Slobodkina monochromes initiated by that request.
