Alan Gussow was born in 1931 in New York. Gussow studied at the Pratt Institute and graduated from Middlebury College in 1952. At the age of 21, while attending Cooper Union, Gussow was awarded the Prix de Rome fellowship in painting in 1953. At the time, he was the youngest artist to be given this award. He was a well known conservationist whose love for the environment inspired his abstract landscapes and conceptual work. Gussow has artwork in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary art, and several other museums throughout the U.S.
