Anne Tabachnick

Biography from the Archives of askART

A figurative abstract painter who lived in in New York City, Anne Tabachnick had a life-long admiration for what she called "the Grand Tradition" with her interest ranging from Europeans from the the Old Masters to the Modernists. Of particular interest to her were Matisse, El Greco, Arshile Gorky and Renaissance painters who did alter pieces.

Tabachnick was born in Derby, Connecticut on July 28, 1933. Her father was a highly regarded Yiddish poet. For three years, she studied with Hans Hofmann and also attended Hunter College in New York, the University of California at Berkeley, and New York University where she did graduate work. She studied briefly with William Baziotes. In addition to her own painting career, she was a teacher at Dayton Art Institute, Harvard University, Parsons School of Design, and the Maryland Institute of Art. She was also a reviewer for "ArtNews".

Her many honors and awards include: the Long View Foundation award (first woman recipient) in 1960, Radcliffe's Bunting Institute grant (first out of state recipient) in 1967 and 1969, a CAPS grant sponsored by the New York City Council on the Arts in 1975 and 1978. Tabachnick received the Adolf and Esther Gottlieb fellowship in 1982 and a year later the John Solomon Guggenheim fellowship.

Public collections include: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Hyde Collection and the Dayton Art Institute.
