Landscape with Nature Forms No. 2

Landscape with Nature Forms No. 2


Ralph Rosenborg

(American, 1913–1992)


John L. Severance Fund 1991.232



In 1937, Rosenborg was among the founding artists represented in the initial exhibition of the American Abstract Artists in New York, an important show in the early history of non-objective art in the United States. He was a pioneer in abstract art whose innovative paintings at this time-small explorations in gestural abstraction-anticipated the emergence in the late 1940s of a fully developed Abstract Expressionism on a more ambitious scale. Rosenborg also experimented in the small group of prints he made in the late 1930s. A continuous network of lines covering the sheet give Landscape with Nature Forms No. 2 a wonderful vitality.
