Biography from Brock & Co.:
Alfred James Tulk was born in London, England in 1899. In 1913, the Tulk family moved to Oberlin, Ohio. He studied art at Oberlin Art College and graduated from Yale University’s Fine Art program in 1923. Tulk studied at the National Academy of Design and the Arts Student League in New York while living in Greenwich Village. He studied under Max Weber who taught other notable modernists of the period including Mark Rothko. He worked as an assistant to muralist Ezra Winter who was commissioned for a major mural in Rockefeller Center. Tulk was elected to the National Academy of Design and was a vice president of the American Institute of Architects. He received major mural commissions from 1925 onwards including a 1928 commission for the Apollo Theater, New York and a 1931 mural commission for the Empire State Building. Tulk settled with his family in North Stamford, Connecticut in 1933. He returned to the Rambusch Company to work on several commissions for the 1939 World’s Fair. After the war, Tulk built a studio attached to his North Stamford home, but this was destroyed by a fire in 1953. After a few years he rebuilt his studio and continued to exhibit his paintings. Tulk turned down opportunities to exhibit on New York's 57th Street and took on new challenges, completing a Masters Degree at University of Guanajuato, Mexico at sixty-four years of age. He sold his paintings directly to his patrons.
