Born in 1892, Charles Green
Shaw was an extremely well-listed New York City painter primarily known for
his geometric-biomorphic abstraction.
He was a significant figure in
the history of American abstract art. After graduating from Yale, he studied
at the Arts Students League with Thomas Hart Benton, and took private
lessons from George Luks. His works are in the collections of many important
museums. At auction, his works have sold for as much as $58,000.00.
He died in 1974.
