R B Kitaj
R B Kitaj
American , 1932 - 2007
Stay up to date with this artist
Ron Kitaj was born in Ohio, USA in 1932. He became a merchant seaman with a Norwegian freighter when he was 17. He studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Vienna and the Cooper Union in New York. After serving in the United States Army for two years, in France and Germany, he moved to England to study at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford and then the Royal College of Art in London, alongside David Hockney, Allen Jones and Patrick Caulfield.

Kitaj had a significant influence on British Pop art and was recognised as being one of the world’s leading draughtsmen. In his later years he developed a greater awareness of his Jewish heritage, considering himself to be a ‘wandering Jew’. He was awarded Royal Academician in 1991 and Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1995. Examples of his work are held in most major public collections worldwide. Kitaj committed suicide in 2007, eight days before his 75th birthday.
About the work
About the Work

From A Day Book by Robert Creeley.

Signed. Edition of 200.

Etching and photo-etching

'A ghostly face, familiar only from another print in the series, is hemmed in the lower righthand corner. To the left, Kitaj has reproduced an aerial photograph of a worksite; above is a violently painted wall in Francis Bacon-black and pink, crushing the composition. The whole is reminiscent of Kitaj’s recollection of the bureaucratic environment into which he had been thrown, during the height of public distaste for the Vietnam War of which Kitaj was a prominent dissenter.' Max Waterhouse, Goldmark Autumn 2022.

This suite was made in direct collaboration with the poet Robert Creeley and 'each print relates to a small block of text from Creeley's long prose poem, which recounts events of a single day interjected with disquieting private musings.' Jennifer Ramkalawon, Kitaj Prints, 2013.

Goldmark have the most astonishing range, from the very affordable to the upper echelons of the market. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and really helpful. For anyone wanting to start a serious art collection within whatever budget this could be the best place to start.

There is no other gallery like Goldmark. I'm always amazed at both the stock they hold and their ability to regularly source really quite special pieces of art. That, with their friendly, knowledgeable & utterly unpretentious style makes them a delight to visit & to buy from.

Their delivery service is 100% reliable and the breadth of work displayed on their website pretty amazing. Above all, unlike other such dealers, I have never been under any pressure to buy. I recommend you give them a try.

We first visited Goldmark approximately 6 years ago and immediately liked the informality compared to previous gallery experiences. It’s a great place to start or build on your collection. Everyone at Goldmark is very friendly, knowledgeable and will give you as much or as little time as you wish.

We have bought prints and pots from Goldmark over many years and our house is the richer for the collections we have built up. The framing and delivery service are faultless.

Their exhibitions are always prepared with great care, with videos and catalogs accompanying the shows. I have not been able to visit the gallery in person but all the Goldmark team is splendid and highly professional, which makes the virtual shopping a great experience.
