Ida Kohlmeyer Sold at Auction Prices

Sculptor, Painter, b. 1912 - d. 1997

Ida Rittenberg Kohlmeyer (3 November 1912 – 24 January 1997) was an American painter and sculptor who lived and worked in Louisiana. Kohlmeyer took up painting in her 30s and achieved wide recognition for her work in art museums and galleries throughout the United States.[2] Notably, her work is held by the National Museum of Women in the Arts,[3] the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Ms. Kohlmeyer, a member of the Reform Jewish movement, played an active role in the New Orleans Jewish community throughout her life. Touro Synagogue (New Orleans) displays much of her artwork in their synagogue and in the social hall.

Kohlmeyer, née Rittenberg, was the daughter of Polish immigrants. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English at Newcomb College, the former women's coordinate college of Tulane University. After graduating from Newcomb, Kohlmeyer married Hugh Kohlmeyer, and the two took their honeymoon to Vera Cruz and Mexico City, Mexico in 1934. It was there that Kohlmeyer became inspired by and interested in the art of South and Central America.

Biographical Note: Ida Kohlmeyer was born in New Orleans, LA, in 1912. She graduated from Isadore Newman Manual Training School and entered Sophie B. Newcomb College of Tulane University to study English literature. She began her art studies at John McCrady's Art School in the French Quarter of New Orleans in 1947. Kohlmeyer then pursued her Masters Degree at Tulane with Pat Trivigno. Her art underwent a profound change during the summer of 1956, when she spent time at Hans Hofmann's Provincetown workshop and became exposed to Abstract Expressionist theories and colors. The next year Mark Rothko came to Newcomb as a visiting artist and set up a studio in the garage at Kohlmeyer's family home. He considered his work there a major breakthrough, and Kohlmeyer's response to his paintings was so intense that her work for the next seven years reflected her reaction as she moved from figurative painting towards her own idiom of Abstract Expressionism. By the mid 1970's, she developed her distinctive vocabulary of shapes and symbols originally organized in grid format and later in loose-flowing patterns. That style, which she explored for the rest of her life and eventually translated into sculpture, gave expression to her draftsmanship and encouraged her strong sense of color. Kohlmeyer taught at Newcomb College from 1956 until 1965. In 1957, she had her first one-person exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art. She also was a faculty member at the University of New Orleans from 1973 until 1975. Her work can be found in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, New Orleans Museum of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Houston Museum of Fine Arts, among many others. Among her many awards was the city of New Orleans pronouncing March 1985 as the official Ida Kohlmeyer Month. (Sources: Columbus Museum, Georgia; The Johnson Collection).

(2 pcs.) Provenance: Orleans Gallery, New Orleans, LA; Collection of Rena Dewey, Memphis, TN; Private Collection, Memphis, TN. Exh.: Brooks Art Gallery, Memphis, TN, 1970s. Note: In 1956, Ida Kohlmeyer traveled to Provincetown, Massachusetts to complete a three-month workshop with famed Abstract Expressionist, Hans Hofmann. This period ignited a major turning point in her approach to painting. Inspired by Hofmann’s advice that painting should be an “invention and not an imitation,” she began to approach her work in a more impulsive and physical way. Her new methodology shifted her focus to the process, rather than the outcome, of making art, and thus 1956 marked the beginning of her evolution from figurative painting to Abstract Expressionism. The painting offered here entitled “Ships at Sea” was painted the same year she studied under Hofmann, and his influence is evident in the dense clusters of thick, colorful brushstrokes that anchor the composition. The title indicates a recognizable subject, while the execution remains purely abstracted with glimpses of possible masts punctuating the larger planes of color.

          Est: $6,000 - $12,000

          DESCRIPTION: "Cluster No. 25". Ida Kohlmeyer (American, 1912-1997). Oil on Canvas. Unsigned but has the provenance of being recorded in the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Art. Created 1973. Known as Louisiana’s most renowned artist, Kohlmeyer didn’t receive her MFA until 1956. She later studied under Hans Hofmann and he influenced her decision to give up representational art for abstraction. In the Seventies, she developed a style using large elliptical shapes with softened edges, greatly influenced by Mark Rothko. “Cluster No.25” was created in that period. She eventually developed her own vocabulary of hieroglyphs, shapes, and signs, all organized in a loose grid. Her style continued to evolve throughout her career. “Cluster No.25” is an unsigned work which is occasionally found on paintings by Ida Kohlmeyer. This painting is recorded by title and photograph at the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Art files for the Henri Gallery. The Henri Gallery (Henrietta Ehrsam's Art Gallery, opened 1957 Alexandria, VA),  was historically important for Washington Color School artists and others including Ida Kohlmeyer. A copy of the Archives record is included with the piece. MEASUREMENTS: 44-1/2" high x 69" wide; frame 1/2" wide. CONDITION: no known restoration.
