Burton WASSERMAN ( b. 1929) Original Signed Print. 1957
Burton Wasserman studied painting with Ad Reinhart and Burgoyne Diller at Brooklyn College, graduating in 1950. He formed strong friendships with both of these artists and developed a life-long passion for abstract art.
Whilst pursuing a career as an art professor, writer, and critic, Wasserman has continued actively to produce paintings, prints and sculpture. In his work of the 1960s the influence of the DeStijl movement, and consequently that of Reinhardt and Diller, is most strongly felt - simple geometric shapes, the use of only primary colors, and images reduced to a bare minimum. Through the years Wasserman's work has subtly evolved, always remaining abstract, at times moving into a more painterly approach, and at other times more geometrical but with a wider range of colors.
