Biography from Charleston Renaissance Gallery:
DAVID SCHWAB (1921-2002)

David Schwab spent his childhood in the small town of Bishopville, South Carolina, a locale that would figure in his paintings over the course of his career. After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, he settled in New York City and became a diamond cutter. It was not until the 1960s that Schwab returned to his youthful interest in drawing and painting. The following decade, the artist took up sculpting as well, often creating figures of Middle Eastern descent in marble, alabaster, and bronze. An abiding interest in the culture of that geographic region and Jewish folklore consistently informed his castings and canvases.

Schwab preferred to work from “imagination and memory,” rather than life models or particular places, noting that such an approach lent “an added dimension of power” that allowed him “to reveal [his] innermost feelings and emotions.” Many of Schwab’s paintings, executed in a spare manner and dark palette, reflect a sense of urban loneliness reminiscent of the work of American master Edward Hopper.
