Micheal Loew

(1907—1985)

Loew developed an approach to geometric abstraction that maintained a soft and sensuous esthetic that was inspired from nature. He was an integral part of the New York avant-garde and showed his work regularly from the 1930s on. He was a friend of Willem de Kooning who he had work with him on a WPA mural project in the 1930s. Michael Loew studied at the Arts Students League, the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts and the Atelier Léger in Paris. Loew received many awards and fellowships and in 1997 his estate received the Judith Rothschild Grant.
