"The sculptures are mag nificent to behold\, the paintings even more so. But best of all\, this exh ibit captures the essence of an era\, and it does so with little-known work s and late-career paintings that reveal the artist’s interest in gravity\, suspension and motion."
-Dorothy Shinn\, Akron Beacon Journa l


Adolph Gottlieb\, a first-generation abstract expressionist paint er whose art was central to the development of mid-twentieth century painti ng in America\, was among only three of his fellow painters to create both two- and three-dimensional works. Gottlieb’s sculptures are little-known an d have rarely been seen in the United States. Adolph Gottlieb: Sculptor< /i> includes sculptures\, maquettes and templates\, as well as several majo r paintings from the 1960s and 1970s that illustrate the important relation ship between the artist’s drawings and sculptures. Additionally\, the conne ctions between Gottlieb and his contemporaries will be examined in an adjac ent presentation drawn from the museum’s collection of painting and sculptu re.
