"Jules Olitski was born in Soviet Russia in 1922 and emigrated to the U.S. with his mother, Freida. In 1940, he was admitted to the National Academy of Design in New York City. In the evenings, he studied sculpture at the Beaux Arts Institute.

Olitski studied sculpture in 1947 under Chaim Gross (1902–1991) at the Educational Alliance, and two years later, moved to Paris on the G.I. Bill, where he studied with sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890–1967), then at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière.

In 1963, Olitski joined the faculty of Bennington College in Vermont, where painter Paul Feeley and sculptor Anthony Caro taught, and Kenneth Noland lectured. The following year, he was included in Post-Painterly Abstraction, an exhibition curated by Greenberg for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Olitski’s “Curtain” paintings were showcased in Three American Painters: Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, Frank Stella, an exhibition curated by Michael Fried at Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum in 1965."
