Adolph Gottlieb: From a Toronto Corporate Collection
Adolph Gottlieb (1903-1974) was one of the original Abstract Expressionist artists. His work is immediately recognizable for its bold colors and his signature motifs; starbursts, discs, thick brushstrokes, and "labyrinths," offering a perfect balance between energy and contemplation.
His contribution to the evolution of abstraction in America is uncontested. Yet despite this, his work is far more affordable, at every level, than his peers such as Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky and Jackson Pollock.
This exceptional group of prints comes from an important corporate collection in Toronto. (They spent most of their lives in the TD Centre, the modernist masterpiece designed by Mies van der Rohe). Like the building, Gottlieb prints are elegant, impactful and iconic.
The collection will be on display at our new Toronto gallery on 647 Dupont Street, until early February by appointment.
