Useful Link: Art of Adolph Gottlieb

Have you ever wondered how great art can sometimes be so simple? A few lines, a few shapes and something both creatively compelling and engaging is the result? The trouble is, that while the results look simple and easy it really is not easy to do successfully. While searching for this week's Useful Link, I came across abstract expressionist artist Adolph Gottfried (1903-1974). If you click his name, the link will take you to so some of his art. I like his work and I am curious whether you do.

After viewing it, please leave a comment on my blog as to whether or not you like his art and why. If you like it, what is it that you think makes it work even in its apparent simplicity? (To leave a comment, simply click on the "comments" link at the end of this post.)
