Pen and Bistre Ink Drawing, 2011, 14-3/8 x 19-1/4, sheet 16 x 21, signed and dated in ink lower right margin corner, on a full sheet of cream laid WORTHY watermarked paper. An intricate and energetic 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. His deep feeling for the forces of nature is evident in these complex and elegant ink drawings.
