Friedel Dzubas

Friedel Dzubas (1915-1994) was born in Berlin, and studied at the Prussian Academy of Fine Art and under Paul Klee while in Düsseldorf from 1936-1939. In 1939, Dzubas fled Germany for London and the Untied States where he later became a citizen. In 1948, he met Clement Greenburg who introduced him to Jackson Pollock and Helen Frankenthaler with whom he shared a studio in 1952. In the early 1950s, he began exhibiting his work in New York. In the 1960s, he started experimenting with color field painting. A retrospective of Dzubas’ work was shown at the Museum of Fine Art, Houston in 1974 and at the Museum of Fine Art, Boston the following year. In 1983, Dzubas was honored with an exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.
