Artist Bio

 

Lionel Gilbert

 

Lionel Gilbert was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1912. He began his artistic training very early, in the Saturday children’s program of the Newark School of Fine & Industrial Art in 1924. In 1933 he graduated from the same school and moved to France for 5 years, where he studied both privately and at L’Academie de la Grande Chaumier. Upon his return to the United States he became part of Chicago’s W.P.A. program creating large murals in many public buildings in the US. For many of the following years, he worked as an illustrator in such places as Cleveland and New York City. During the war, he was sent to England as an official U.S. Air Force artist to depict various aspects of Air Force life in and around air force bases. In 1965 he became a full-time painter, showing his work with Alonzo Gallery in New York City through the early 1980’s. As well as an artist, he was also a dedicated teacher, and taught painting throughout his career. He taught art at the 92nd Street Y Art Center, from 1967 to 2002, and offered classes for seniors since 1998.
