Friedel Dzubas (1915-1994) was a Berlin-born, American abstract painter and a key artist associated with the both the New York School and the Color Field movement. 

Dzubas studied art in Germany before fleeing the Nazi regime in 1939 and settling in New York City. By the 1940’s, Dzubas circulated with some of the leading abstract painters in the city's vital art scene. He was close friends with Jackson Pollock and shared a studio with Helen Frankthaler in the 50’s. During this time, Dzubas began exhibiting his own Abstract Expressionist paintings.

One of Dzubas first major exhibitions took place at the 9th Street Art Exhibition in 1951, a groundbreaking and historical art exhibit featuring a number of boundary-pushing, notable artists. This exhibition acted as an introduction to the New York School of post-war avant garden artists. Among the others exhibited were Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Helen Frankethaler, Willem de Kooning, Hans Hoffman, Lee Krasner, Franz Kline, and many others.

During the 60’s Dzubas became associated with the Color field painting and Lyrical Abstraction movements. During this period his works were more hard-edged blocks of color. However, he would return his more expressive and improvised manner later in his career.

Dzubas’ technique involved applying thick layers of color over washes, scrubbing the Magna paint he used into the unprimed canvas. He would then use various methods, often including staining and brushing, to apply more color to the canvass.

Many of Friedel Dzubas hang in the permanent collections of some of the most prestigious art institutions in the world; including, the Whitney Museum, NY, the Guggenheim, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Albright-Knox.
