Harold Cohn (1908-1982), was a successful painter, printmaker and teacher working both in Detroit and New Jersey. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the country including, The Detroit Institute of Arts (1933-45), The Carnegie Institute (1941&43), The Los Angeles Museum of Art (1945), The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1934), and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (1942). During his extensive career, Cohn explored many different elements of contemporary art. These influences can be seen in many of his drawings and paintings; much of his experimentation is thought to be reminiscent of Matisse’s art work. With such a striking comparison, it is no wonder that Cohn has such an extensive auction record.
“Coffee Pot & Bowl of Fruit” from 1952, is a wonderful example of Cohn’s versatility as an artist as it shows the influence of Cezanne’s geometrical approach to objects and shifting perspective, but was drawn in a truly contemporary fashion. The loose ink drawing
