Three Trees by Norman Gorbaty, Amer. (B. 1932)
Regular price $2,000
Pen and Bistre Ink Drawing, 2011, 13-13/16 x 19-7/16, sheet 16 x 21, signed and dated in ink lower right margin corner, on a full sheet of warm white laid WORTHY watermarked paper. A forceful and energetic drawing by Gorbatyn, equally at home with painting, drawing, 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 this decades long series of complex and elegant ink drawings.
