Adolph Gottlieb Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Draft draughtsman, Sculptor, b. 1903 - d. 1974

Adolph Gottlieb (March 14, 1903 – March 4, 1974) was an American abstract expressionist painter, sculptor and printmaker.

Adolph Gottlieb, one of the "first generation" of Abstract Expressionists, was born in New York in 1903 to Jewish parents. From 1920–1921 he studied at the Art Students League of New York, after which, having determined to become an artist he left high school at the age of 17 and worked his passage to Europe on a merchant ship. He traveled in France and Germany for a year. He lived in Paris for 6 months during which time he visited the Louvre Museum every day and audited classes at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. He spent the next year travelling in Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and other part of Central Europe, visiting museums and art galleries. When he returned, he was one of the most traveled New York Artists. After his return to New York, he studied at the Art Students League, Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union and the Educational Alliance.

Printed by Mourlot, Paris. Publ. by The International Rescue Committee, N.Y.] Catalogue note: Adolph Gottlieb rebelled against his parents by taking art classes instead of joining the family's stationery business. When he was eighteen, he worked his way to Paris with no money or passport, and sneaked into art classes at the Acadmie de la Grand Chaumire. In 1922 he came back to America and studied painting at the Art Students League, learning to do things that were not exactly literal and to work from imagination and memory (1967 interview, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution). He became friends with the painters Mark Rothko and Milton Avery and was a founding member of The Ten, a group opposed to the social realist painting of the 1930s. Gottlieb was involved in many artists associations and in 1950 was the principal organizer of The Irascibles, a group of artists who protested an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art that had ignored recent abstract American art.

          ADOLPH GOTTLIEB Beacon.

          Est: $2,500 - $3,500

          ADOLPH GOTTLIEB Beacon. Color lithograph on Arches, 1969. 755x531 mm; 29 1/2x20 5/8 inches (sheet), full margins. Signed, dated and numbered 14/100 in pencil, lower margin. Published by Marlborough Graphics, Inc., New York. A very good impression with strong colors. After high school, Gottlieb (1903-1974) attended the Art Students League in New York and traveled Europe in the early 1920s. He became friends with Mark Rothko (1903-1970) in the 1930s and the two often worked and exhibited together when possible. He and Rothko were founding members of the group of artists known as The Ten, who began meeting together in New York in 1934. Around the early 1930s, Gottlieb also became interested in etching, buying an old press from a junk shop and printing proofs for his own enjoyment, in extremely small editions, most of those which survive are from the early 1940s. These early etchings show strong ties to the Surrealist prints of Joan Miró (1893-1983), Kurt Seligmann (1900-1962) and Yves Tanguy (1900-1955), while they parallel the early intaglio work of Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) from Atelier 17 in New York. Gottlieb's Burst paintings, and the color screenprints and lithographs which were derived from them, date from the height of career. He began with the motif during the late 1950s and continued to employ it throughout the remainder of his career. These Burst images combine the gestural strokes of Abstract Expressionism with a mastery of color. They have become synonymous with Gottlieb's work, much like his friend Rothko's ractangular color field paintings. Associated American Artists 65.

          ADOLPH GOTTLIEB Chimera. Etching on cream wove paper, circa 1946. 166x125 mm; 6 1/2x5 inches. Edition of 15. Signed in pencil, lower right. A very good impression of this scarce etching. Gottlieb (1903-1974) referred to these early prints (the approximately 20 drypoints, etchings and woodcuts he made in the 1940s) as Pictographs, suggesting there were messages in the various signs and symbols that fill the grid-like compartments in the images. He was almost certainly inspired by Native American pictographs, having become interested in Native American art and culture while living in Arizona during the late 1930s. These early etchings also show strong ties to the Surrealist prints of Joan Miró, Kurt Seligmann and Yves Tanguy. Whether or not Jackson Pollock ever knew these early etchings by Gottlieb is uncertain, though there are certainly affinities with Pollock's 1944-45 intaglio works printed at Atelier 17 in New York. Gottlieb became friends with Mark Rothko during the 1940s and the two worked closely together, describing their stylistic experiments in an open letter to the New York Times in the summer of 1943, as well as an interview on WNYC radio.

After high school, Gottlieb (1903-1974) attended the Art Students League in New York and traveled Europe in the early 1920s. He became friends with Mark Rothko (1903-1970) in the 1930s and the two often worked and exhibited together when possible. He and Rothko were founding members of the group of artists known as The Ten, who began meeting together in New York in 1934. Around the early 1930s, Gottlieb also became interested in etching, buying an old press from a junk shop and printing proofs for his own enjoyment, in extremely small editions, most of those which survive are from the early 1940s. These early etchings show strong ties to the Surrealist prints of Joan Miró (1893-1983), Kurt Seligmann (1900-1962) and Yves Tanguy (1900-1955), while they parallel the early intaglio work of Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) from Atelier 17 in New York. Gottlieb's Burst paintings, and the color screenprints and lithographs which were derived from them, date from the height of career. He began with the motif during the late 1950s and continued to employ it throughout the remainder of his career. These Burst images combine the gestural strokes of Abstract Expressionism with a mastery of color. They have become synonymous with Gottlieb's work, much like his friend Rothko's ractangular color field paintings. Associated American Artists 72.

Lot Essay: I just paint from my personal feelings, and my reflexes and instincts. I have to trust these.   Adolph Gottlieb as told to J. Gruen, The Party’s Over Now: Reminiscences of the Fifties, New York, 1967  The term "azimuth" refers to a navigational measurement that indicates the direction of a celestial object from the observer's position. Adolph Gottlieb’s Azimuth stands as a testament to his artistic innovation and profound contributions to Abstract Expressionism: acting as a bridge between his Burst series and the Pictograph works that would follow, this departure from purely spontaneous gestural abstraction that would become a roadmap for a broader shift towards structure and intention within the entire movement.   Azimuth is a dynamic composition, intimidating in scale yet meditative in execution – the large white canvas is interrupted by a burst of color at its lower center, which is flanked by enigmatic symbols – a juxtaposition of vibrant colors, bold lines, and intricate marks showcase Gottlieb’s mastery. Its title reflects Gottlieb’s invitation to the viewer to navigate through their own experience with the work, fusing abstraction and symbolism in visual narrative as a new direction for the ethos of Abstract Expressionism as it explored its boundaries.  One of the “first generation” of Abstract Expressionists, Gottlieb was born in New York and left school to travel extensively before settling amongst his peers at the Art Students League of New York, Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union, and the Educational Alliance. His early experiments in surrealism -- particularly involving automatic writing and subconscious imagery -- would later manifest themselves in his Pictographs series, spanning until 1950. Though he studied indigenous symbols extensively, he refused to copy or repeat any existing mark, so as not to have the viewer view works referentially. In doing so, Gottlieb created his own visual language, simplifying his representation through his consummate understanding of color theory.   Throughout his career, Gottlieb was featured in 56 solo exhibitions and over 200 group exhibitions and was the first of the Abstract Expressionists to have his work collected by the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum. A pivotal work, Azimuth was frequently included in these exhibitions, most notably as part of the artist’s retrospective (1981-1983) following his death in 1974.
