Adolph Gottlieb

Adolph Gottlieb, 1966

Hot off the scanner today is this beauty of Adolph Gottlieb in his New York studio. Born in 1903, Gottlieb was an American abstract expressionist painter, sculptor and printmaker. In 1963 he became the first American artist to be awarded the Gran Premio of the São Paulo Bienale in Brazil. In 1968, the Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York collaborated on a retrospective exhibition of his art that filled both museums. In between, in 1966, he was photographed by Mr. Karsh.
