He preserved that painting style into his later works, which is why we call him one of the last to continue painting in that style. Kaitz took a 23-year hiatus from painting while he ran an antique store in Brooklyn with his wife, Mildred. They collected 19th-century art and oil paintings expanding to three stores before relocating their collection to Monticello in upstate New York. There they had a summer home, where they entertained artists, writers and poets.Longtime friend and Pulitzer Prize nominee, the Yiddish poet Menke Katz, once wrote that Kaitz is always walking the mountaintops, but he knows whats going on in the streets. Kaitzs first era of painting focused on mythical, goddess-like figures, while his later work involved celestial landscapes that could have been inhabited by the creatures in his earlier paintings. One futurist-inspired painting is Voyager, made in 1975. The abstract landscape appears to show a jagged spear of ice pointing toward a fractured moon, while orange ribbons of smoke curl around it, as if from a spaceship.
Perhaps his best-known work is The Gatsby Girl, painted in the 1930s and reflective of the Jazz Age as depicted in F. Scott Fitzgeralds classic American novel The Great Gatsby, which focused on millionaire Jay Gatsby and his obsession with the beautiful Daisy Buchanan.Listed artist, with many exhibitions.
