Olive Tree, by Norman Gorbaty, Amer., (1932-2020)
Regular price $1,000
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 never stopped working. At age 87, after a tragic home & studio fire, he'd begun to work again until his passing in 2020. His deep feeling for both living things and the forces of nature is evident in the decades long series of complex and elegant ink drawings he produced.
