Karl Knath (1891-1971)

From Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Karl Knath studied at the Milwaukee Art Institute and for five years at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1919, he settled for the rest of his life in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Building his own house, Karl Knath lived simply and modestly while earning a distinctive national reputation.

In his unique Cubism and Expressionism, Karl Knath combined subtle color, varying textures and arbitrary shapes. He was one of the original exhibitors with American Abstract Artists in 1937. Duncan Phillips was a principal supporter and collected over forty of his canvases. Karl Knath also taught courses at numerous eastern art schools. Source: askart.com
