Product Description

New York artist Robert Moskowitz paints iconic images--windmills, lighthouses, athletes, and famous works of art--that titter between representation and abstraction.  He distills his subject into a hard-edged silhouette surrounded by a single hue.  These backgrounds contradict perspective with flat planes that celebrate process with lush brushwork. For Hard Ball III, movement is implied by the baseball, seemingly coming toward the viewer, and the outline of the pitcher.

Born in 1937 Moskowitz came of age as an artist when abstract expressionism was being challenged by Pop artists in the early 1960s. He deftly blends these idioms by combining a subject drawn from  every day life, baseball, presented as a flat minimal silhouette on a painterly background with layers of pigment drips and streaks associated with abstraction.  He, thus, bridges several movements making work that is both abstract and figurative.

Magnet measures approximately 3.25 x 2.25 inches
