> DESCRIPTION

"The sculptures are magnificent to behold, the paintings even more so. But best of all, this exhibit captures the essence of an era, and it does so with little-known works and late-career paintings that reveal the artist’s interest in gravity, suspension and motion."
-Dorothy Shinn, Akron Beacon Journal

Adolph Gottlieb, a first-generation abstract expressionist painter whose art was central to the development of mid-twentieth century painting in America, was among only three of his fellow painters to create both two- and three-dimensional works. Gottlieb’s sculptures are little-known and have rarely been seen in the United States. Adolph Gottlieb: Sculptor includes sculptures, maquettes and templates, as well as several major paintings from the 1960s and 1970s that illustrate the important relationship between the artist’s drawings and sculptures. Additionally, the connections between Gottlieb and his contemporaries will be examined in an adjacent presentation drawn from the museum’s collection of painting and sculpture.
