Sam Glankoff

SAM GLANKOFF (1894-1982) produced eloquent abstractions whose primordial symbols, bold brushstrokes and spiritual energy found affinities with both the monumental art forms of ancient civilizations and the aspirational expressions of the art of his time. Glankoff is known for “print-painting,” a transfer painting process he developed in the 1970s, in which he applied water-based inks to delicate Japanese papers, creating unique, multi-paneled, multi-layered, large-scale works.

Since 1981, when his first-ever solo exhibition was presented in new york, when he was 87 years old, Glankoff’s work has been exhibited widely and has entered many distinguished private, corporate and museum collections throughout the world.
