Arshile Gorky

New York Art World ®  - Commentary Index - Artists Listings - Themes

Influencing much of the American Abstract art that followed, Arshile Gorky develped an original style that combined cubism and surrealism with his own disguised imagery.


The Liver is the Cock's Comb (1944) -- one of largest and greatest pictures -- uses abstract forms to camouflage a deeply personal portrait of his family at home.

1904 - 1948
