Mathias Goeritz Art

German, 1915-1990

Mathias Goeritz was a German painter and sculptor who worked mainly in Mexico. He was born on April 4, 1915 in Danzig, studied philosophy and art history in Berlin, and then went to a craft school. Due to his Jewish origin, he went into exile during the National Socialist regime.

In 1948, during his stay in Spain, Goeritz founded the Altamira School of Arts. After his stays in Morocco and Spain, he went to Mexico in 1949. The collective met there and began their first plastic works. By order of Daniel Mont, he began in 1952 with the construction of the experimental museum El Eco in Mexico City. Goeritz later taught plastic arts at the University of Guadalajara in Jalisco and designed reliefs and concrete and steel sculptures in the D.F. and its surroundings. He was also advisor and director of a project for the team of the Olympic Games of October 1968. The sculptor's best-known work is the Satellite Towers, which were built in cooperation with Barragán on the outskirts, in the north of the city. The red and triangular towers, built in 1957, adorn the entrance to the Ciudad de Satélite neighborhood on the road to Querétaro. The towers symbolize the birth of the Satellite City, a colony that in the 1960s was inhabited mainly by wealthy people. Goeritz passed away on August 4, 1990, in Mexico City.

Joyce Treiman Ink on paper, framed under glass; signed in pencil lower right; Dimensions: 16 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches; 18 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches frame. Joyce Wahl Treiman was an American painter, printmaker, sculptor and teacher. Her work ranged from "the impishly perverse and humorously paradoxical to the brilliant and profound." She was known as an excellent draftsperson throughout her career. She made several trips to Europe to study the old masters, and the human figure is central in her work. In her later paintings she is known to have inserted self-portraits. She attended Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, and then studied at the State University of Iowa (today the University of Iowa) under the influential painter Philip Guston. During World War II she worked as a commercial artist but resigned when she began to have success with exhibitions of her work in Chicago and New York. In 1945 she married Kenneth Treiman, and son Donald, now an Architect, was born in 1950. The Treimans, along with Rene and Rose Wahl, moved to Los Angeles in 1960. She was in an exhibit of Tamarind prints...
