Three Fat Figures, by Norman Gorbaty, Amer., (B. 1932)
Regular price $2,000
Bistre Pen and Ink Drawing, no date, 13-13/16 x 17-3/4, sheet 16 x 21, unsigned, on a full sheet of cream laid WORTHY watermarked paper. A forceful and candid figure drawing by this distinguished master 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. Gorbaty's penetrating analysis of form is always evident in his decades long series of full sheet ink drawings.
