Ilya Bolotowsky Art

American, Russian, 1907-1981
Ilya Bolotowsky grew up in Russia and enjoyed drawing, but his family wanted him to do something “socially useful,” so he planned to be a lawyer. He changed his mind after he moved to New York, however, and enrolled at the National Academy of Design. During the 1930s, the Works Progress Administration hired him as a mural painter, and he was one of the first artists to create completely abstract designs for the project. He composed geometric images from colored rectangles and squares, inspired by his belief in “ideal harmony and order.” From the late 1940s, Bolotowsky used canvases shaped as diamonds, circles, and ovals to show how the edge of the painting could change the visual effect of the lines and angles within. (Bolotowsky, interviewed by Svendsen and Poser, Ilya Bolotowsky, 1974)

Located in Milwaukee, WI
"Elizabeth Stein Gallery A/P" is a color lithograph poster by Ilya Bolotowsky. This piece features an abstract and geometric design in yellow. 40" x 26" Born in Russia in 1907, Ilya Bolotowsky left his native country in his early childhood. The family was forced to emigrate as a result of his parent’s anti-Communist sentiments. They traveled first to Constantinople, then settled in New York City in 1923. Bolotowsky enrolled at the National Academy of Design in 1924. He tried out many styles in this period, ranging from the representational and classical to the abstract and expressionistic. In the early 1930s he became a designer of textiles. In 1932 Bolotowsky spent ten months in Europe. Although he was already familiar with prevailing modernist movements, the opportunity to study a wide range of these works and to meet some of the artists who had made them affected Bolotowsky profoundly. As a result of this trip, Bolotowsky began to synthesize aspects of Cubism with the abstract Surrealism of artists like Miro and Arp. These softer, floating forms gave way to a rectilinear geometry as he became more influenced by the Constructivists and Mondrian. Upon his return to the United States, Bolotowsky married his fellow painter Esphyr Slobodkina...

Mirror #9 (C.114, Mirror Series), 1972
By Roy Lichtenstein
Located in Greenwich, CT
Mirror #9 (C.114) from the Mirror Series is a screenprint and lithograph on paper, 30 x 21.18 inches, signed and dated 'rf Lichtenstein '72' lower center margin and framed in a contemporary white frame. Catalog - Corlett, The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein - A Catalogue Raisonne 1948 - 1997, Hudson Hills Press, NY and National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 2002, pg.126, #114. About Lichtenstein’s Mirror Series (taken from Corlett): Mirrors were an important subject in Lichtenstein’s paintings and prints of the early 1970s. From late 1969 to 1972 he painted over forty canvases depicting this subject. The first print was in 1970, with Twin Mirrors (cat. no.102) for the Guggenheim Museum. In 1972 he also produced Mirror (cat. No. 115) at Styria Studio, in addition to this Gemini G.E.L. series of nine prints. In the mid-seventies he took up the subject in sculpture, and he returned to it in prints as recently 1990, with Mirror (cat. No 246). In addition, he has often explored the related theme of reflections, incorporating them in various paintings and in several print series: Reflections (1990; cat. Nos. 239 – 245), Interiors (1990, published 1991; cat. nos. 247 – 54), and Water Lilies (1992; cat. nos. 261 – 66). This Gemini group (catalog nos. 1-6 - 114) utilizes lithography, screenprint, line-cut, and embossing... In an interview with Lawrence Alloway, Lichtenstein noted: “You know, I am always impressed by how artificial things look – like descriptions of office furniture in newspapers. It is the most dry kind of drawing, as in the Mirrors. They really only look like mirrors if someone tells you they do. Only once you know that, they may be moved as far as possible from realism, but you want it to be taken for realism. It becomes as stylized as you can get away with, in an ordinary sense, not stylish.” As Jack Cowart has commented: “One would not actually stand in front of a Lichtenstein Mirror...

Untitled. SF-353 from “Papierski Portfolio”
By Sam Francis
Located in Malmo, SE
Untitled. SF-353 from “Papierski Portfolio” 1992. Signed by the artist. Artwork size : 56 x 76 cm Frame size : 75x97x4 cm Museum glass anti-reflective. Signed AP (artist proof) Sam Francis Archive Number: SF-353 Publisher: The Litho Shop, Santa Monica. Free shipment worldwide. Sam Francis’s paintings are a journey into a dream, a voyage into the landscapes of the soul where colours are lights on fire. Alongside names such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, Sam Francis is an artist who has succeeded in demonstrating a total mastery of abstract expressionism’s impassioned and spontaneous genre. The explosions of colour – red, blue, green and yellow – the streaks, strokes and bold lines of his pictures are the physical synthesis of the deepest crevices of the soul. His colours create rhythmical motifs that, characteristically enough, can be called the “musicality” of his paintings. The work of Sam Francis provides a visible meeting place for the conscious and the unconscious. His pictures are the cross-fertilisation of what has already been experienced with what exists still only as desire, a struggle between melancholy and merrymaking. Influenced by C.G. Jung, the father of psychoanalysis, Sam Francis spent a large portion of his life exploring the premise that dreams, instincts and intuition provide, the keys which unlock the mysteries and meaning of our inner lives. He was also fascinated by the four ancient elements – earth, water, air and fire – which developed into a leitmotif in his work. Sam Francis was born in San Mateo in California, USA in 1923. After starting to paint at the age of around twenty, he soon found himself increasingly consumed by the power of art. He spent much of the 1950s in Paris, from where he not only made frequent excursions to a number of European cities, but also embarked on many journeys to South America and Asia. He continued to move from place to place, primarily in the USA and Japan, right up until his death in 1994. Sam Francis’s first...
