Henrik Gotlib was a key member of the Formist movement in Poland, which rejected the seemingly restrictive standards of Realism, still very much dominant in early twentieth-century Polish art, in favour of an expressionism which was heavily influenced by figures such as Egon Schiele and Max Beckmann. Works by Gotlib are in a number of prominent collections, including those of the National Portrait Gallery, the Tate Gallery, and the Courtauld Gallery in London, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and the National Museum of

Wales in Cardiff, among others.

Gotlib’s work has been offered at auction multiple times, the record price being 12,719 USD for Dama W Kapeluszu sold at Polwiss in 2020.
