Synopsis: Surprising and long overdue, this is the first monograph on a major American Impressionist and Post-Impressionist, one who recorded his travels, his family, and the joys of life with luscious color and exuberant sensibility.
The founder of the Silvermine Guild, a successful teacher, illustrator, and master of ceramic and graphic art, Bernhard Gutmann received serious critical acclaim during his lifetime, and his work was shown in major exhibitions and museums. But since his death in 1936 his work has gone unnoticed, largely because he did not need to sell his art. His works remained in the family rather than going to the collectors, museums, and galleries that would have introduced him to a general audience.
Born in 1869 and educated in Germany, Gutmann arrived in the United Stated at the age of 23. From modest immigrant beginnings—he moved to Virginia to work as an electrician—he rose to be the first superintendent of drawing in the Lynchburg public schools. After his marriage to Bertha Goldman, granddaughter of the founder of the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs, he was free to concentrate on his art alone.
Described during his "rediscovery" in 1988 as "an American Gauguin," Gutmann had a great influence on American regional art: he organized the still functioning Lynchburg Art Club in Virginia and later assisted in the foundation of the thriving Silvermine Guild of Artists in New Canaan, Connecticut.
Review: Bernard Gutman (1896-1936) immigrated to the United States from Germany at the age of 23. The financial security of marrying into a wealthy family allowed him to concentrate on his interest in art. Because he had no need to sell his work, it was not often viewed in public spaces and remained primarily in his family's possession. Recent popular discovery of his work has earned him a place in the history of 20th-century American painting and printmaking. His portraits are serene and impressionistic, while his landscapes and genre scenes have the boldness and energy of postimpressionism. No matter what the subject of his paintings, his masterful use of rich, saturated color is mesmerizing. The book is elegantly designed and the illustrations are reproduced as large as possible without compromising the clarity of the colors, and the engaging text will lead you through Gutman's life and work.
