Walter Sorge Signed Abstract Mixed Media Painting of Figures


An abstract mixed media painting of figures by the Canadian artist Walter Sorge (1931-2021). Watercolor, graphite, and oil paint have been used to create gestural lines that form an abstracted scene of figures engaged in action. Signed "Sorge" to the lower right, the work is displayed in a white frame and behind a white mat.

Born in Alberta, Canada, Walter Felix Sorge attended UCLA and received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from there during the 1950s. He continued his education at Columbia University in New York where he received his Doctorate in Fine Art and Fine Art Education. Sorge also studied under Stanley William Hayter in Paris and worked at Atelier 17. He later had an extensive career as an art educator and served as head of the art department at Kentucky Southern College in Louisville, the head of the art department at Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, as well as chairman of the art department at Eastern Illinois University. Sorge exhibited widely during his lifetime in the United States and abroad.
