THEODORE HAUPT   (1902-1990)
A Minnesota native, Theodore Haupt studied at the Minneapolis School for the Arts with Anthony Angarola. In 1923, on a scholarship, he attended the Académie Julian in Paris, where he worked with André LHote. By the 1927 he was back in this country, in New York, where he worked for Vanity Fair, Charm, and The New Yorker -- between 1927 and 1933 he made forty-five covers. In the 1930s Haupt made a New Deal mural, Girl's Athletics, and showed at the 1938 Whitney Annual. He progressed to surrealist images in the late 30s and early 40s, and eventually produced high intensity abstract works.
