About

Initialed "JS" upper right Solman was a pivotal figure in the development of 20th century American art. He was instrumental in the founding of “The Ten,” a progressive group of artists whose members included Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko and Ilya Bolotowsky. From 1936 to 1941, he was active in the easel division of the WPA Federal Art Project. In 1949, he was honored with a retrospective exhibition at the Phillips Memorial Gallery in Washington, D.C. and received the 1961 award in painting from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His works are included in more than two dozen major museum collections throughout the world. We befriended Solman towards the end of his life. Our inventory includes several oils and Subway Series drawings. The drawing measures 12 x 9.5 inches. The drawing, framed by Bark, measures 17 x 15 inches.
