Lot 0122
Oil on canvas, featuring abstract style artwork. Signed and attr. Adolph Gottlieb (American, 1903–1974), signature on lower left margin. 15 x 21.5 in (38.1 x 54.6 cm). Recognized as one of the originators of Abstract Expressionism, painter Adolph Gottlieb drew on mythological and tribal symbols as well as Surrealism to create works that emphatically broke with American Regionalism. Gottlieb’s pictographs possessed primitivist qualities, featuring shapes evocative of cave drawings. His later paintings, such as the well-known Brinkfrom 1959, often employed circular motifs and thick, gestural brushstrokes, which were an integral part of the development of Color Field painting.
