Sunrise represents an awakening, the beginning of a new day, a symbol of hope, a chance for happiness and a renewed outlook. The morning light can illuminate the birth of a new idea or the rebirth of a forgotten plan. In this subject, Gottlieb depicts a young woman focused on the horizon as she reflects on her future.
“Gottlieb’s personal fascination with interpreting ephemeral, yet deep, thoughts as a form of poetic idealism in painting prompts a distinct art language that merges the worlds of Realism and Impressionism. By applying the classical skills of the Old Masters, his contemporary subjects are given an enigmatic and timeless appeal.”
