    Art Brokerage: Herbert Ferber American Artist: b. 1906-1991. Herbert Ferber was born in New York City in 1906. Expelled from the National Academy of Design for sculpting nonacademic, figurative work in 1930; exhibited landscape and figure etchings at National Arts Club; received Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation scholarship and met Ilya Bolotowsky and David McCosh. Influenced by Surrealism, his baroquely exaggerated Abstract Expressionist works were heavily charged with symbol and myth. They were full of expressive movement, suggesting figures in flight, plant and animal life, the shapes of bones and fossils. But by the early 1960's his sculptural vocabulary had become leaner, relying more on simpler shapes like ovals and segmented circles. Often, his forms were confined in cagelike constructions. He was also an accomplished painter, his canvases taking the form of sculpturelike reliefs on which he painted abstract motifs. Work in Many Museums. The sculptor's works are in the collections of major museums throughout the world, including the Metropolitan, the Modern and the Whitney Museums in New York. His New York dealer for many years was M. Knoedler & Co., where he had his last show in September 1990. Listings wanted.
