$5,500

Compared with his peers, the original Abstract Expressionist posse, including Arshile Gorky, Hans Hoffmann, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, Gottlieb arguably created the most easily recognizable paintings. 

His signature forms include bursts, circles and "labyrinths". While the forms appear to be expressionist or even automatic shapes they are often highly symbolic and inspired by primitive art. 

Gottlieb's practice is strongly connected to gestural painting, yet his work also posses a calm and almost contemplative energy that is often at odds with the work of Gorky, Hoffmann and Pollock (whose canvases can be heavy with angst with violent or chaotic application of paint)

While in recent years, Adolph Gottlieb has been overshadowed by his friend and colleague Mark Rothko, Gottlieb is still one of the most important and influential American abstract painters...and one of Caviar20's favorites.

Gottlieb was an exceptional colorist, as evidenced here in “Blue Night”. In this highly collectable screenprint, a vibrant shade of blue serves as the background for Gottlieb’s signature circular form.

Printed at the height of Gottlieb's career in the 1970s, “Blue Night” has a subtle composition and striking palette which remain as fresh as ever.
