Robert Moskowitz (American, b. 1935) was raised in Brooklyn, New York. He is widely known as a prominent figure in the New Image Painters, a group of artists named after the 1978 Whitney exhibition that marked a return to an overt figurative style in painting after the conceptual periods of Minimalism, performance, and installation. His paintings distill notions of figure and ground into those of solid and void. Caught between abstraction and representation, Moskowitz’s use of negative space suspends the moment of image recognition. Robert Moskowitz has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad since his first solo exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, in 1962. Select Permanent Collections include: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA.
