Regular price $2,000
Pen and Bistre Ink Drawing,, undated, 12-7/16 x 18-7/8, signed in ink lower right margin corner, on a full sheet of cream laid WORTHY watermarked paper. A forceful drawing by this distinguished master draftsman, equally at home with painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. Gorbaty studied with Gabor Peterdi, Albers and Louis Kahn at Yale, then 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 complex and elegant ink drawings.
