Frank Lobdell (American, 1920–2013)
Gift of the Frank Lobdell Trust. In the permanent collection, Brunnier Art Museum, University Museums, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa.
Frank Lobdell worked in the manner of Abstract Expressionism, often featuring geometric forms that at first may seem to be wholly abstract and spontaneous, but at deeper inspection take on human-like forms. Look closely, is this etching depicting a human body? What shapes further your interpretation? Similar to the sketches by Christian Petersen and model by William King in the exhibition, how is motion depicted in the simplified forms and geometric shapes of Lobdell’s etching?
