Jay Milder

Omaha, Nebraskab. 1934​

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1934, Jay Milder is an American artist and a figurative expressionist painter of the second generation New York School. His works are greatly influenced by spiritualism and mysticism, making references to Old Testament themes such as Jacob’s Ladder and Noah’s Ark, and the esoteric mystical beliefs of the Kabbalah. In the early 1950’s, Milder spent time in Europe, where he studied painting with André L’Hote, and sculpture with Ossip Zadkine and became influenced by painter Charles Soutine. He later returned to the United States where he attended the Art Institute of Chicago. During the 1970s, Milder co-founded a collective group called Rhino Horn with Peter Passuntino, PeterDean, Benny Andrews, Nicholas Sperakis, Michael Fauerbach, Ken Bowman, Leonel Gongora, and Bill Barrell.

Internationally exhibited, Milder is included in the collections of many national and international museums, including The Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; The Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Massachusetts; The Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia; and the Dayton Art Institute,Ohio. He has been the subject of two, recent retrospectives in Brazil in 2007 at the National Museum Brasilia and, in 2006, at the Museum of Modern Art, in Rio de Janeiro. Milder is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts and a Rainbow Arts Foundation Award, among others.
