Figure Study, by Norman Gorbaty, Amer., (B. 1932)
Regular price $2,000
Pen and Bistre Ink Drawing, undated, 11-3/4 x 18-13/16, sheet 16 x 21, unsigned, a short discretely repaired edge tear at top left, on a full sheet of cream laid WORTHY watermarked paper. A forceful and dramatic figure drawing by this distinguished and masterful draftsman, equally at home with drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking. A student of Gabor Peterdi, Albers and Louis Kahn at Yale, Gorbaty forged a successful career as illustrator and graphic designer while raising a family. He has never stopped working, and at age 87 after a recent tragic studio fire, he has begun to work again. His deep feeling for the forces of nature is evident in his decades long series of full sheet complex and elegant ink drawings.
