About

"Red/Blue/Black Diamond" is a signed silkscreen print by Ilya Bolotowsky. It is a geometric diamond with red, blue, and black lines going vertically and horizontally on a white ground. 25 3/4" x 35 7/8" art 26" x 36 1/4" framed Ilya Bolotowsky was a leading early 20th-century painter in abstract styles in New York City. His work, a search for philosophical order through visual expression, embraced cubism and geometric abstraction and was much influenced by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Born to Jewish parents in St. Petersburg, Russia, Bolotowsky immigrated to America in 1923 to settle in New York City. He attended the National Academy of Design and became associated with a group called "The Ten," artists, including Louis Schanker, Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko and Joseph Solman, who rebelled against the structures of the Academy and held independent exhibitions. During this period, Bolotowsky came under the influence of the De Stijl painter Piet Mondrian and the tenets of neoplasticism, a movement that advocated the possibility of ideal order in the visual arts. Bolotowsky adopted his mentor's use of horizontal and vertical geometric pattern and a palette restricted to primary colors and neutrals. In 1936, having turned to geometric abstractions, he was one of the founding members of the American Abstract Artists, a cooperative formed to promote the interests of abstract painters and to increase understanding between themselves and the public. The David Barnett Gallery held a show of Bolotowsky's work just a year before the major Guggenheim retrospective of his work.
