Albert Kotin ~ Pioneer Abstract Expressionist




Albert Kotin belonged to the early generation
of New York School Abstract Expressionist
Artists whose artistic innovation by the 1950s
had been recognized across the Atlantic including
Paris. New York School Abstract Expressionism represented by Jackson Pollock, Willem
De Kooning, Franz Kline and others became the
leading art movement of the postwar era.
Artists including James Brooks, Nicolas Carone,
Giorgio Cavallon, Willem & Elaine De Kooning,
Enrico Donati, John Ferren, Perle Fine, Michael
Goldberg, Robert Goodnough, Grace Hartigan,
Hans Hofmann, Earl Kerkam, Franz Kline,
Albert Kotin, Conrad Marca-Relli, Joan Mitchell,
Robert Motherwell, Richard Pousette-Dart,
Milton Resnick, James Rosati, Louis Schanker,
David Smith, and Esteban Vicente were the
24 artists from the total of 256 participants
who were included in the famous 9th St. Show,
(1951) and in all the following New York Painting
and Sculpture Annuals from 1953 to 1957. These
Annuals were important because the participants
were chosen by the artists themselves.
Alexander Calder wrote in 1968: As long as there are people such as Al Kotin,
there is no danger to art.
