About the Item

Knox Martin (1923 - 2022) Untitled Signed to lower edge Acrylic and gold foil on canvas 9 x 9 inches Knox Martin (1923-2022) was an esteemed New York School painter.

After serving in World War II, Knox Martin attended the Art Students League of New York on the G.I. Bill from 1946-1950, where he studied with Harry Sternberg, Vaclav Vytlacil, Will Barnet, and Morris Kantor. In 1954, Knox Martin's friend Franz Kline placed a painting of his in the Stable Gallery Annual. Charles Egan of the renowned Charles Egan Gallery saw Knox Martin's painting at the Stable Gallery and asked Martin to show his work in a one-man show for the tenth anniversary of the Egan Gallery. Since then, Knox Martin was a celebrated painter, sculptor and muralist. Knox Martin had an extensive exhibition record and his work is in museum, corporate and private collections worldwide. His two best-known murals in NYC are Venus and Woman with Bicycle. Knox Martin was the recipient of many grants and awards, most recently the Benjamin West Clinedinst Memorial Medal, awarded by the Artists’ Fellowship “for the achievement of exceptional artistic merit.” Knox Martin also led a distinguished career teaching art. He taught at Yale Graduate School of the Arts, New York University, University of Minnesota, International School of Art in Umbria, Italy, and Fort Rajgat, India. For over 45 years, Knox Martin gave a legendary Master Class at the Art Students League of New York.
