William Clutz

Born 1933, Gettysburg Pennsylvania, he grew up in Mercersburg, attending Mercersburg Academy and the University of Iowa (BA)

He was a Manhattan resident from 1955 to 1996.

Clutz is known for urban paintings, pastels, and charcoal drawings of pedestrians in light.

Along with his peers, Elmer Bischoff, Alex Katz, Grace Hartigan, Earl Kerkam, and Richard Diebencorn, Clutz was recognized as a significant proponent of abstract figuration in the renewed interest in figuration of the late 50’s and 60’s in such exhibitions as “Recent Drawings, USA”, 1956 and “Recent Paintings USA, the Figure,” 1962 at MOMA, “The Emerging Figure”, Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, Texas, 1960 and “The Figure International” American Federation of Arts, 1963.

Since his first solo show in 1959 in New York, Clutz has exhibited regularly in New York City and been represented by well-known New York City Galleries such as Katharina Rich Perlow, Tatistcheff, Alonzo, Graham, Brooke Alexander, Bertha Schaefer, and David Herbert.

Clutz has also had solo exhibitions at Triangle Gallery San Francisco, Tatischeff/Rogers in Los Angeles, John C. Stoller Minneapolis, and Walther Rathenau Saal Berlin, Germany.

Clutz taught painting and drawing at Parsons the New School for Design 1970-1992.
