Jack Tworkov

Born in Biala, Poland in 1900, Jack Tworkov came to the United States when he was thirteen. He studied at Columbia University and the National Academy of Design, under Ivan Olinsky. He also studied at the Art Students League with Guy Pene DuBois and Boardman Robinson. During the Depression he worked first with the Public Works of Art Project and then with the WPA. While working with the WPA, Tworkov met Willem deKooning, who was also working in the same program. Together, and with other abstract expressionists, they founded the New York School, which flourished in the 1940's to the early 1950's. Tworkov was also a founding member of The Club, one of the primary avant-garde art forums in New York in the early 1950's. He taught at American University, Black Mountain College, Queens College, Pratt Institute, University of Minnesota, the Fieldston School, and Yale, where he was the Chairman of Art at the School of Art and Architecture from 1963-1969. He won the Corcoran Gold Medal at the 28th Biennial Exhibit of American Painting in 1963. Tworkov died in 1982.
