Signed "G. Kaitz" at the bottom left, 11 x 9 on crescent board. Regarded as one of the last of the American Art Deco Masters. The singular art of Gustave Kaitz may be described as a highly stylized wellspring of illusion, imagery, and symbolism. Born in Brooklyn in 1913, the son of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, Gustave Kaitz started painting professionally as a young man selling his Art Deco originals to Gimbel’s and Fortunoff department stores, and Greenwich Village galleries. Gustave studied painting at the School of Art at Cooper Union and Philosophy at Brooklyn College. By the age of twenty-two, the young artist was the proprietor of his own studio in Manhattan. Through the years both disciplines – art and philosophy – guided his work and his heart. Kaitz developed a unique style of painting, his art taking on untried visions through his conceptual Deco works of the times, employing mixed media of watercolors, pastels, and pencil, painted on board.
