Ron Gorchov, 1930

Ron Gorchov (b. 1930, Chicago, Illinois) is an American artist. In the 1960s, Gorchov began producing his distinctive paintings, which comprise oil-on-linen on saddle-shaped canvases, evoking the shields of the classical world. He became associated with a group of New York-based abstract artists, such as Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly, who were involved in challenging the singularity of the rectangular frame in painting and exploring new alternatives.
 
Gorchov has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, the Queens Museum of Art, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno, among other institutions. His works are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Guggenheim, among others. Gorchov lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
