Adolph Gottlieb and his wife Esther spent time in East Gloucester with Gloucester artists Milton Avery and Sally Michel Avery.

Avery taught Gottlieb to understand the dedication needed to create serious art, the courage to resist fashion, and the idea of painting a moment in time. Gottlieb, however, never had Avery’s peace of mind, and world conditions intruded and darkened his palette.
