It was casted at the art foundry founded in 1926 Düsseldorf by Gustav Schmäcke.The brown patinated bronze sculpture is signed on verso on the left in the cast 'Rob. Ittermann', and inscribed on verso on the right in the cast 'Guss - G - Schmäke - D'DF.'. It is screwed on flat stone base and in very good condition. The bronze measures 44 x 39 x 26 cm. The dimensions of the base are 21 x 19 x 3 cm.Robert Ittermann (1886-1970) From 1900 to 1904 Robert Ittermann initially trained as a modeler in his hometown of Iserlohn. A further training with Hermann Obrist and Eugene Meyer at Versuchsatelier für angewandte Kunst in Munich followed in 1904. After a short time of professional life Ittermann studied from 1905 to 1908 at the School of Applied Arts in Düsseldorf and then till 1914 at the Art Academy in Karlsruhe. Ittermann remained true throughout his life to a harmonious and calm design language and created sculptures of simple naturalness.

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $4,000

Description: Pencil and aquarelle on board 20x 30 for stamp sheetlet for Antigua and Barbuda Postal Service. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs. Each of these required that extra research effort, frequenting the New York Public Library as well as the scientific and historical archives. A bibliophile, Iskowitz also claims "Many hours were happily spent searching through the miles of books at Strand book store in lower Manhattan." In 2005 he applied for the United States Mint Artist Infusion Program, applying on the last day, and won immediate acceptance, with which he is still associated. While working with the U.S. Mint, his 18 designs have been accepted for new coins and medals. Iskowitz's work has been featured in many international journals; including profiles of his numismatic and philatelic art in COINage Magazine; Watercolor Magazine American, American Artist Magazine, Smithsonian Profiles; and his murals have been featured in Exhibit Builder Magazine. He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs. His first philatelic (stamp) commission was to create a stamp series depicting endangered species sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund for Sierra Leone that featured a family of chimps. Since that first stamp issue in 1977 his philatelic work continues to the present day, covering a wide variety of subject matter from flora and fauna to notable personages from heads of state to film stars. He has been noted for his work depicting the British Royal Family in commemorations, jubilees and festive occasions. As an active United States Air Force (USAF) artist, a number of his oils are in the USAF permanent collection. His painting documenting D-Day events is represented in the permanent collection of the Historical Association of Carentan in Normandy, France. A recently completed mural which chronicles the history of aviation technology has been installed at Wright–Patterson AFB. Iskowitz's most recent D-Day painting completed is "Filthy Thirteen", an oil painting depicting a paratroop unit called the Filthy Thirteen, part of the 101st Airborne Division in Europe during World War II. Inclusion is this elite team meant parachuting behind enemy lines during the Allied retaking of Europe in 1944 in order to attack key targets. It has been suggested that this unit was the inspiration for "The Dirty Dozen", a movie depicting a similar military unit in World War II. The movie differs in many respects however; in the movie the team is selected from convicts. Iskowitz has been invited twice to document Space Shuttle missions and his artwork is on permanent display at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Museum. 2009 Lincoln Cent Reverse, design by Joel Iskowitz. The reverse design for the Dolley Madison First Spouse Gold Coin was created by Iskowitz and was displayed in the East Room of the White House for the release ceremony which Iskowitz attended. His design for the District of Columbia quarter dollar reverse was displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. In September 2010 the U.S. Mint announced the designs for a series of commemorative coins to be issued in 2011 to honor the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Medal of Honor; the reverse side of the Gold coin was designed by Iskowitz. Four new Lincoln pennies were released to honor the 2009 bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. Iskowitz's design for the reverse of the "Professional Life in Illinois" 2009 Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Cent is displayed in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and the Lincoln home National Historic Site. Iskowitz was invited to speak there at the ceremony for the debut of the "Illinois" Lincoln Cent. His original design called for Lincoln to be "holding a rolled up piece of paper... as I imagined he might have held onto his words", but perhaps for "coinability" reasons - potential production difficulties - he was asked to remove the paper and the minted coin has Lincoln standing and gesticulating with one hand behind his back. Iskowitz said having his Lincoln penny design chosen is the "biggest honor" of his career. 2008 US Mint Platinum Eagle (Judicial Branch), design by Joel Iskowitz which won COTY for Most Artistic from Krause Publications.

February 1, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $5,000

Description: Pencil on paper 8x11. U.S.First Ladies stamp series for the Gambia. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs. Each of these required that extra research effort, frequenting the New York Public Library as well as the scientific and historical archives. A bibliophile, Iskowitz also claims "Many hours were happily spent searching through the miles of books at Strand book store in lower Manhattan." In 2005 he applied for the United States Mint Artist Infusion Program, applying on the last day, and won immediate acceptance, with which he is still associated. While working with the U.S. Mint, his 18 designs have been accepted for new coins and medals. Iskowitz's work has been featured in many international journals; including profiles of his numismatic and philatelic art in COINage Magazine; Watercolor Magazine American, American Artist Magazine, Smithsonian Profiles; and his murals have been featured in Exhibit Builder Magazine. He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs.

He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs.

He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs.

Since that first stamp issue in 1977 his philatelic work continues to the present day, covering a wide variety of subject matter from flora and fauna to notable personages from heads of state to film stars.

His design for the District of Columbia quarter dollar reverse was displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. In September 2010 the U.S. Mint announced the designs for a series of commemorative coins to be issued in 2011 to honor the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Medal of Honor; the reverse side of the Gold coin was designed by Iskowitz.

Lot 9: No Way Ballet By Original Artist Joel Iskowitz - Oil on Canvas

by Tangible Investments

February 1, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: Oil on Canvas ,18 x 24(stretched) Book cover for Troll Publications. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice.

Description: Historical (Candlelight) Romance, 1818 Oil on canvass board cover painting for Dell Publications. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs. Each of these required that extra research effort, frequenting the New York Public Library as well as the scientific and historical archives. A bibliophile, Iskowitz also claims "Many hours were happily spent searching through the miles of books at Strand book store in lower Manhattan." In 2005 he applied for the United States Mint Artist Infusion Program, applying on the last day, and won immediate acceptance, with which he is still associated. While working with the U.S. Mint, his 18 designs have been accepted for new coins and medals. Iskowitz's work has been featured in many international journals; including profiles of his numismatic and philatelic art in COINage Magazine; Watercolor Magazine American, American Artist Magazine, Smithsonian Profiles; and his murals have been featured in Exhibit Builder Magazine. He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs. His first philatelic (stamp) commission was to create a stamp series depicting endangered species sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund for Sierra Leone that featured a family of chimps. Since that first stamp issue in 1977 his philatelic work continues to the present day, covering a wide variety of subject matter from flora and fauna to notable personages from heads of state to film stars. He has been noted for his work depicting the British Royal Family in commemorations, jubilees and festive occasions. As an active United States Air Force (USAF) artist, a number of his oils are in the USAF permanent collection. His painting documenting D-Day events is represented in the permanent collection of the Historical Association of Carentan in Normandy, France. A recently completed mural which chronicles the history of aviation technology has been installed at Wright–Patterson AFB. Iskowitz's most recent D-Day painting completed is "Filthy Thirteen", an oil painting depicting a paratroop unit called the Filthy Thirteen, part of the 101st Airborne Division in Europe during World War II. Inclusion is this elite team meant parachuting behind enemy lines during the Allied retaking of Europe in 1944 in order to attack key targets. It has been suggested that this unit was the inspiration for "The Dirty Dozen", a movie depicting a similar military unit in World War II. The movie differs in many respects however; in the movie the team is selected from convicts. Iskowitz has been invited twice to document Space Shuttle missions and his artwork is on permanent display at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Museum. 2009 Lincoln Cent Reverse, design by Joel Iskowitz. The reverse design for the Dolley Madison First Spouse Gold Coin was created by Iskowitz and was displayed in the East Room of the White House for the release ceremony which Iskowitz attended. His design for the District of Columbia quarter dollar reverse was displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. In September 2010 the U.S. Mint announced the designs for a series of commemorative coins to be issued in 2011 to honor the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Medal of Honor; the reverse side of the Gold coin was designed by Iskowitz. Four new Lincoln pennies were released to honor the 2009 bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. Iskowitz's design for the reverse of the "Professional Life in Illinois" 2009 Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Cent is displayed in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and the Lincoln home National Historic Site. Iskowitz was invited to speak there at the ceremony for the debut of the "Illinois" Lincoln Cent. His original design called for Lincoln to be "holding a rolled up piece of paper... as I imagined he might have held onto his words", but perhaps for "coinability" reasons - potential production difficulties - he was asked to remove the paper and the minted coin has Lincoln standing and gesticulating with one hand behind his back. Iskowitz said having his Lincoln penny design chosen is the "biggest honor" of his career. 2008 US Mint Platinum Eagle (Judicial Branch), design by Joel Iskowitz which won COTY for Most Artistic from Krause Publications.

Daughter of God By Original Artist Joel Iskowitz  - Aquarelle, Pencil and Ink on Arches

Lot 16: Daughter of God By Original Artist Joel Iskowitz - Aquarelle, Pencil and Ink on Arches

by Tangible Investments

February 1, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $3,000

Description: Drawing Aquarelle, Pencil and Ink on Arches. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs. Each of these required that extra research effort, frequenting the New York Public Library as well as the scientific and historical archives. A bibliophile, Iskowitz also claims "Many hours were happily spent searching through the miles of books at Strand book store in lower Manhattan." In 2005 he applied for the United States Mint Artist Infusion Program, applying on the last day, and won immediate acceptance, with which he is still associated. While working with the U.S. Mint, his 18 designs have been accepted for new coins and medals. Iskowitz's work has been featured in many international journals; including profiles of his numismatic and philatelic art in COINage Magazine; Watercolor Magazine American, American Artist Magazine, Smithsonian Profiles; and his murals have been featured in Exhibit Builder Magazine. He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs. His first philatelic (stamp) commission was to create a stamp series depicting endangered species sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund for Sierra Leone that featured a family of chimps. Since that first stamp issue in 1977 his philatelic work continues to the present day, covering a wide variety of subject matter from flora and fauna to notable personages from heads of state to film stars. He has been noted for his work depicting the British Royal Family in commemorations, jubilees and festive occasions. As an active United States Air Force (USAF) artist, a number of his oils are in the USAF permanent collection. His painting documenting D-Day events is represented in the permanent collection of the Historical Association of Carentan in Normandy, France. A recently completed mural which chronicles the history of aviation technology has been installed at Wright–Patterson AFB. Iskowitz's most recent D-Day painting completed is "Filthy Thirteen", an oil painting depicting a paratroop unit called the Filthy Thirteen, part of the 101st Airborne Division in Europe during World War II. Inclusion is this elite team meant parachuting behind enemy lines during the Allied retaking of Europe in 1944 in order to attack key targets. It has been suggested that this unit was the inspiration for "The Dirty Dozen", a movie depicting a similar military unit in World War II. The movie differs in many respects however; in the movie the team is selected from convicts. Iskowitz has been invited twice to document Space Shuttle missions and his artwork is on permanent display at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Museum. 2009 Lincoln Cent Reverse, design by Joel Iskowitz. The reverse design for the Dolley Madison First Spouse Gold Coin was created by Iskowitz and was displayed in the East Room of the White House for the release ceremony which Iskowitz attended. His design for the District of Columbia quarter dollar reverse was displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. In September 2010 the U.S. Mint announced the designs for a series of commemorative coins to be issued in 2011 to honor the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Medal of Honor; the reverse side of the Gold coin was designed by Iskowitz. Four new Lincoln pennies were released to honor the 2009 bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. Iskowitz's design for the reverse of the "Professional Life in Illinois" 2009 Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Cent is displayed in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and the Lincoln home National Historic Site. Iskowitz was invited to speak there at the ceremony for the debut of the "Illinois" Lincoln Cent.

Waiting For His Muse By Original Artist Joel Iskowitz - Chalk and Pastel and Color Pencil on Paper

Lot 20: Waiting For His Muse By Original Artist Joel Iskowitz - Chalk and Pastel and Color Pencil on Paper

by Tangible Investments

February 1, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $3,500 - $7,000

Description: Drawing Chalk and Pastel and Color Pencil on Paper 24 x 18 in | 61 x 46 cm. Joel Iskowitz Born August 15, 1946 (age 68) The Bronx, New York Known for Illustration: philatelic, numismatic Joel Iskowitz is an American designer, book illustrator, print artist and stamp, coin and medal designer. From an initial interest in medical illustration, this graphic artist has branched to other fields. He specializes in highly realistic art resulting from extensive research to make his designs as accurate as possible. His philatelic (stamp) designs, he once said, "must be super accurate and well documented, for if you get so much as an animal's tuft of fur out of place on a philatelic design you will hear from someone critical of your design." Among his coin designs are the reverse of the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial penny (3rd of 4: Professional Life in Illinois), 2008 Arizona State Quarter and 2009 District of Columbia Quarter. Iskowitz graduated from New York's High School of Music and Art in 1964. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Hunter College in 1968, and attended a summer session on a scholarship at Yale his junior year. He enrolled in several other fine arts courses, but found the instructors were more interested in abstract art rather than the traditional, realistic art he wanted to pursue. He eventually took a teaching course, allowing him to teach in New York City schools as a substitute teacher in math and art from 1970 to 1977. After a year on the West Coast as a portrait artist in San Francisco, he returned to New York City to work in the music industry designing album covers. He found illustration work submitting freelance line drawings which were visual reviews of new albums to the rock music publication, Changes. This led to book and cover illustrations for young adult and romance books; though highly realistic, he called these historical romances "glorified Hollywood clinch scenes." The research necessary to create believable period pieces helped prepare him for the exacting reference needed for his future philatelic and numismatic (coins and medals) works. He was exposed to etching and engraving while enrolled at Hunter College in 1964-1968, studying under Richard Claude Ziemann for whom he later served as an apprentice. This experience in printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he has used in many of his stamp and coin designs. Each of these required that extra research effort, frequenting the New York Public Library as well as the scientific and historical archives. A bibliophile, Iskowitz also claims "Many hours were happily spent searching through the miles of books at Strand book store in lower Manhattan." In 2005 he applied for the United States Mint Artist Infusion Program, applying on the last day, and won immediate acceptance, with which he is still associated. While working with the U.S. Mint, his 18 designs have been accepted for new coins and medals. Iskowitz's work has been featured in many international journals; including profiles of his numismatic and philatelic art in COINage Magazine; Watercolor Magazine American, American Artist Magazine, Smithsonian Profiles; and his murals have been featured in Exhibit Builder Magazine. He has been awarded both bronze and silver medals for his corporate illustrations and grand-scale public art in Portfolios.com international competitions. Most recently his design for the American Numismatic Association’s Presidential Award won the 2008 silver medal in corporate illustration in the International Creative Shake competition. Iskowitz also creates artwork commemorating significant historical events. His most recent effort, published in lithograph by Signature Art Medals, depicts the 1908 sitting of Theodore Roosevelt for his obverse portrait on the Panama Canal Service Medal. Medalist Victor David Brenner is shown sketching the president in preparation for his models. It is widely believed that while sitting for Brenner, Roosevelt saw one of Brenner's Lincoln plaques and was inspired to have Brenner design the new Lincoln Cent, first released in 1909. Iskowitz has created over 2000 stamps for 40 separate nations. He has also received the National Oceanic and Philatelic Society citation for his contributions to Space Philately. His experience at Hunter College with Ziemann and printmaking was formative in developing his "gravure" style which he employed in many of his stamp designs. His first philatelic (stamp) commission was to create a stamp series depicting endangered species sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund for Sierra Leone that featured a family of chimps. Since that first stamp issue in 1977 his philatelic work continues to the present day, covering a wide variety of subject matter from flora and fauna to notable personages from heads of state to film stars. He has been noted for his work depicting the British Royal Family in commemorations, jubilees and festive occasions. As an active United States Air Force (USAF) artist, a number of his oils are in the USAF permanent collection. His painting documenting D-Day events is represented in the permanent collection of the Historical Association of Carentan in Normandy, France.

It has been suggested that this unit was the inspiration for "The Dirty Dozen", a movie depicting a similar military unit in World War II.
