Regarded as the last American Art Deco artist of the twentieth century, Gustave Kaitz died in 1992, leaving a legacy of extraordinary magnitude of original paintings and sketches spanning nearly seven decades. Upon visiting the site, viewers will behold the singular art of this renowned American artist. Kaitz’s mythologies are peopled in celestial beings – women who are not really women at all; they are goddesses, or mythical subjects like Leda and the Swan, Lake Goddess, and his signature work The Gatsby Girl – illusions beyond the confines of time. They are intellectual concepts, more than tangible creatures of beauty. The Kaitz collection expounds an era of Art Deco in its supreme form.
The Kaitz legacy remains unsurpassed in its Deco magnificence taking on the thrust of the 21st Century.
“There were countless number of wonderful artists from the Art Deco era, but few can compare with Gustave Kaitz and his thought provoking, awe inspiring works.”
“Kaitz not only share his unique prospective with the world in the time of the era, he also helped reignite widespread appreciation for the period among future generations.”
