About Penelope Gottlieb

Penelope Gottlieb's recent paintings appropriate a methodology common to both Surrealism and the Baroque, namely the linking together of heterogeneous, diverse order of things. Painting directly over pre-existing Audubon prints, Gottlieb literally envelops the birds in a tightly woven braid of plant leaves, tendrils, and tentacles, so that what would normally be part of the birds' natural habitat has suddenly turned on them as a form of domestic colonization. Her work has been exhibited in numberous galleris and museums, and is in the permanent colections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Nevada Museum of Art, National Museum of Wildlife Art, 21c Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum and Chicago Art Institute. Her work is in numberous private collections, including the Wellington Management art collection.

What People Are Saying

We came here in the recommendation of a worker at Yellowstone. The museum itself is beautiful, nestled into the hills outside Jackson. The art is stunning. Some feel almost like photographs. Highly recommended.
