About the Artist:
Henri Goetz was born in New York in 1909. He studied painting and drawing privately and attended the Grand Central Art School in New York as well as MIT and Harvard. Goetz ultimately moved to France in the 1930s and became a naturalized French citizen in 1949. His early years in France greatly influenced his work as he developed rich friendships with Arp, Picasso, Picabia, Hartung, Kandinsky and many others. Consequently, the body of his work was strongly influenced by surrealism, expressionism, fauvism and cubism. Following the war years, he had a long career teaching, working in various media particularly printmaking for which he was known for innovation in etching techniques with a process referred to as “carborundum printmaking” or the “Goetz’s Method.” His work was exhibited broadly and can be found in the permanent collections of many art institutions. Goetz died in Nice in 1989.
