Fritz Glarner
Leading Abstract Expressionist
Swiss-American

Born in Zurich, Glarner trained in Naples and Paris, but emigrated to the United States in 1936. In New York he became affiliated with Dutch artists who formed the De Stijl group of Abstract Expressionism. He was a close friend and associate of Piet Mondrian and was deeply influenced by him.

Glarner is listed in all the major art dictionaries and his works hang in major museums including the National Gallery of Art. He also produced paintings for vast interior spaces such as the Dag Hammmarskjold Library at the United Nations and the lobby of the Time-Life building in New York.

These sketches are most likely from the early period of the artist’s career, perhaps when he trained in Naples or perhaps sketched at the Academie Colarossi during his years in Paris (1924-26).
