About the Artist: Jack Tworkov, 1900-82, was an American painter, born in Bela, Russia . Tworkov’s family immigrated to the United States in 1913 and settled in New York. He studied at Columbia (B.A., 1923) and later at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students' League. He became an American citizen in 1928. During the Depression, Tworkov worked (1935-41) for the WPA's Federal Art Project, painting in a social realist style. In the 1950s he, his friend Willem de Kooning, and several other artists created abstract expressionism. He became known for large abstract canvases covered with brilliantly colored, flame like brushstrokes. His works from the 1960s on are generally geometric rather than gestural, frequently built of broad grids of intersecting, usually subdued color. Tworkov taught at a number of colleges and was chairman of the art department at Yale University from 1963 to 1969.
