Johnny Friedlaender (1912-1992) was a painter and a printmaker, who studied, lived and worked in many places in Europe, eventually becoming a French citizen. He is also a rare artist to have survived internment in a variety of camps in France during the war. While his oil paintings and some early work are regarded with respect, Friedlaender is known today for his color aquatints from the 1940s and beyond. He developed a very personal technique and abstract style which presents shapes that suggest but never detail reality. These lyrical graphic fields leave everything to the imagination. While most of his work shows relatively little variety, his changing palette, scale, and compositional structure presents the opportunity to find work that speaks to the individual.
