George Knaus

Messy Tabletops and Lovely Landscapes

No Reception.

GEORGE KNAUS, 1928-2015

George studied painting and printmaking at the University of Hartford during the 1950s when Abstract Expressionism was at its height. After performing as a jazz musician since high school, his aesthetic sensibility was shaped by the vital energy of the times.

Yet he was disciplined in his studies. He drew beautifully and his realistic images are executed with a nod to the modern masters. Composition is as important as depiction.



After Art School George taught art, mostly at the high school level, in Connecticut until his retirement in 1996 when he moved to New Paltz, NY. He always worked - painting, making prints and pots and drawing, drawing, drawing. He believed we can all draw as we all can read, do math and throw a ball.

He did not travel much for every car ride, meal, family member and messy table top was an inspiration. He did not see a need to go far.
