Karl Knaths

American, 1891 - 1971


Born in Wisconsin in 1891, Karl Knaths studied at the Milwaukee Art Institute and for five years at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1919, he settled for the rest of his life in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Building his own house, he lived simply and modestly while earning a distinctive national reputation.


In his unique Cubism and Expressionism, he combined subtle color, varying textures and arbitrary shapes. He was one of the original exhibitors with American Abstract Artists in 1937. Duncan Phillips was a principal supporter and collected over forty of his canvases. He also taught courses at numerous eastern art schools.
