Albert Kotin belonged to the early generation of New York School Abstract Expressionist artists. He was among the 24 artists from the total of 256 participants who were included in the famous "9th St." Show, (1951) and in all the following New York Painting and Sculpture Annuals from 1953 to 1957. These Annuals were important because the participants were chosen by the artists themselves.
"To know Al Kotin is to come face to face with a man whose life and work is a continual manifestation of integrity. Actually, I believe there is no other way."
Alexander Calder wrote in 1968:
“As long as there are people such as Al Kotin, there is no danger to art.”
