Description: Henry Botkin (American, 1896-1983), "Untitled", c.1970; collage and oil, 13" x 13", signed. Botkin studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and the Art Students League. Botkin worked in paris in the 1920s, supported by his cousins, George and Ira Gershwin. After returning to the U.S., he began to focus on abstraction. He served as president of four major art organizations including: The Artists Equity Association, The American Abstract Artists, Group 256 Provincetown, and the Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors. In 1955 Botkin arranged the first exhibition of American abstract art at the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, Japan. During this time Botkin also became interested in working with collage, and this media dominated his work from the 1960s until his death in 1983.
