Harry Gottlieb

Harry Gottlieb received his art training at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, specializing in design. He started his career in New York City as a wallpaper designer and became a stage manager and scene designer at the Eugene O'Neill Provincetown Playhouse. Gottlieb was part of the Federal Art Project working in Woodstock, NY, and New York City. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1932 and traveled abroad to further his art career, eventually, becoming president of the Artist's Union that advocated federal support for artists. His work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as other museums and university collections. The major portion of his work encompassed the field of social realism and the development of silk-screen printing as a fine-art form. He died of Alzheimer's disease at the age of 98.
