Pen and Bistre Ink Drawing, 2013, 13-14/16 x 20-5/8, sheet 16 x 21, signed and dated at image lower right, on a full sheet of cream laid WORTHY watermarked paper. An intricate and energetic drawing by this distinguished masterful draftsman, 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 these complex and elegant ink drawings.
