Turbulence, by Norman Gorbaty, Amer., (1932-2020)
Regular price $1,000
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, who was 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 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.
