Gabor Peterdi

American, 1915 - 2001

Peterdi was a very young, precocious artist who won the prestigious Prix de Rome at age 15, and later studied printmaking at Stanley Hayter's innovative studio, Atelier 17, in Paris. After moving to New York in 1939 he became associated with Abstract Expressionism, although Peterdi never created purely non-figurative paintings and prints. He remained consistently inspired by forms from nature.
