Ilya Bolotowsky (1907-1981) was a Russian-American abstract painter and writer. Born in St. Petersburg, he emigrated to the United States in 1923 where he studied at the National Academy of Design and became associated with a group of artists known as "The Ten," which included Louis Schanker, Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko and Joseph Solman. By 1936 he had turned to painting geometric abstractions and was one of the founders of the American Abstract Artists cooperative. In addition to his own art, he taught at Black Mountain College and at Long Island University.
