About: Ilya Bolotowsky was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and immigrated to New York in 1923. Between 1924 and 1930, he received his first art training at the National Academy of Design. Bolotowsky appreciated and was influenced by the work of Piet Mondrian and adopted a non-objective style of painting and printmaking. In 1937, Bolotowsky worked with other abstract artists such as Josef Albers and Alice Mason to found the American Abstract Artists. The organization’s stated purpose was “to unite abstract artists residing in the United States, to bring before the public their individual works, and in every possible way foster public appreciation for this direction in painting and sculpture.”
