William Zimmer, was an art critic who achieved international status through his catalog essays, which were published by museums all over the world. He retired as contributing critic to The New York Times after more than 20 years. His career began with ARTS Magazine in 1975; in 1977 he was hired by The Soho Weekly News, a paper published in Lower Manhattan. By virtue of the paper’s location in the burgeoning Soho district, Zimmer was the first critic to review Julian Schnabel, David Salle, Keith Haring and many other artists who became major art world figures of the 1980s. Zimmer’s catalogue texts include essays on Donald Sultan, Brice Marden, Catherine Lee, Benny Andrews and Richard Bosman, to mention only a few. His generosity to up-and-coming artists was legendary, and in his lifetime he wrote hundreds of essays for emerging and mid-career artists. Zimmer passed away in September of 2007, and the Zimmer Prize in Art Criticism was established that same year by Larry Powell Management and Katharine T. Carter & Associates.
