Douglas Gorsline

Gorsline was born in Rochester, New York, and studied art at the Yale School of Fine Art and the Art Students League in New York where he studied with Kenneth Hayes Miller, John Sloan, and John Steuart Curry. Living in New York he was drawn to the style of the 14th Street area and followed the footsteps of Isabel Bishop and Reginald Marsh. Gorsline adopted the format of the Urban movement and concerned himself with the people of the city, their character and emotions. He was noted for his women on the streets of New York commuting to work and their daily activities. Gorsline was a member of the National Academy of Design and the Society of American Etchers. In the world of literature he was known as being an excellent book illustrator. His works have been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Butler Institute of Art, and the Douglas Gorsline Museum in France`
