- I’m itching to create. This week my acting classmates are letting me draw them into weird stunted storybooks. Mitch asked for “sci-fi” — “hmm, I actually don’t love sci fi... like robots and laser beams?” “okay well, I’ve been going running a lot lately?” ⭐️ Want a weird stunted storybook starring yourself? Message me two theme options (one word or phrase each).

We had the pleasure of knowing Joe and spent several afternoons at his apartment over what was then the 2nd Avenue Deli.
Joseph Solman, a pivotal figure in the development of 20th century American art, was born in Russia and emigrated to the U.S. in 1912. He studied at the National Academy of Design in the 1920s. He was an founding member of "The Ten," a group of modernists and abstractionists which included Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Ilya Bolotowsky, and Karl Knaths, who rebelled against prevailing practices of Regionalism. .
Later, while the work of the members of "The Ten" evolved into Abstract Expressionism, Solman developed a unique style combining expressionism, abstraction, and traditional figurative painting. From 1936 to 1941, he was active in the easel division of the WPA Federal Art Project. In 1949, he was honored with a retrospective exhibition at the Phillips Memorial Gallery in Washington, D.C. and received the 1961 award in painting from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His works are included in more than two dozen major museum collections throughout the world.
