    About The Work

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

    Adolph Gottlieb's (1903-1974) practice is strongly connected to gestural painting, and in this work that spontaneous energy is represented in the frantic tar-black brushstrokes, dabs and splatter that fills the bottom register of the composition.

    Gottlieb's work also possess a calm and almost contemplative energy that is often at odds with the work of his Abstract Expressionist peers (whose canvases can be heavy with angst or chaotic applications of paint).

    “Flury” is a paradigm of Gottlieb’s aesthetic, marrying contemplation with gestural dynamism. The artist often presented discordant or contrasting colors that strangely appear harmonious. Here two discs, one a dusty forest green, the other a muted brick red, hover face to face above a zone of tumultuous black sprays and strokes. 

    Today Gottlieb's paintings sell for upwards of $6 million at auction. His iconic and elegant prints are a must-have for the young collector passionate about American Abstract Expressionism.
