About

John von Wicht (1888-1970) was a German-American artist whose work was initially influenced by European Cubism and Expressionism. He later moved to create more clearly abstract expressionist works. He got his break in 1939, when he showed at the Kohn Gallery. The next year, he was invited to exhibit at the Whitney. During WWII, he worked as a barge captain in New York Harbor supplying troop transports. After the war, harbor themes, such as in this painting, would appear in his abstractions. This painting was exhibited at Passedoit Gallery in NY in 1950. HIs work is in the collections of the Whitney, MOMA, Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian Museum, and many other museums.
