Drawings of Herb Aach

Herb Aach drew as a child and though primarily a painter, he continued to draw throughout his life. He recalled that his parents would give him pencil and paper as a child to keep him occupied and that he happily complied. Although he focused on abstracts as a painting, he drew both abstracts and figurative works. Towards the end of his life when he became too weak to paint, he concentrated on his drawing, often passing his time in hospitals by drawing flowers given him by friends or other hospital scenes.
