Description

Emil Bisttram (1895-1976), Abstract, watercolor/acrylic on paper, 12 x 9", frame: 14.5 x 11.5"

A leader in the development of modern art in America, Emil Bisttram pioneered its introduction in the Southwest moving from New York to Taos New Mexico in 1931. Before 1931 the Hungarian-born artist was exposed to advanced painting and art theory through his close associations with artist such as Nicholas Roerich and Wassily Kandinsky. Bisttram opened the Taos School of Art, at that time called the Bisttram School of Fine Arts, in 1932. In 1938 along with Raymond Jonson he founded the Transcendentalist painting group whose members sought to convey the cosmic and universal by means of nonobjective aesthetic.
