Description

Friedel Dzubas, German-American, 1915-1994. New York, Chicago, Germany. Abstract expressionism or post-war American abstraction, illustration. New York School, Eight Street Club, and Greenwich Village.

Spectre is a Magna acrylic on canvas that is signed, dated (1982), and titled on verso. 40 x 40 in., 41 x 41 in. frame

M. Knoedler & Co. Inc., New York, NY

Private Collection, MN

Dzubas studied under Paul Klee, was roommates with Clement Greenberg, friends with Jackson Pollock, shared a studio with Helen Frankenthaler, and belonged to the younger generation of abstract expressionist painters such as Jules Olitski and Kenneth Noland. His individual contribution to the movement was developing the stain painting technique. His mature work favored the luminosity of acrylic paint, allowing for an immediacy of application. In the 1980s when Spectre was created, Dzubas ceased sketching and canvas priming preparations and abandoned predictable effects, instead employing further risk and spontaneity in his creations. He used rich primary colors for a Baroque-like drama. The Museum of Fine art in Boston and in Houston and the Hirshhorn held retrospectives of his work. The latter show was held in 1983, a year after Spectre was created. Dzubas was also in the landmark exhibition Post-Painterly Abstraction, and in several Ninth Street shows in the 1950s. Dzubas' works belong to numerous important public collections today.
