Description
HANS HOFMANN (1880-1966) Attrib, Title: Untitled, Medium: Mixed media on board, Date: 1961, Size: 9.75 x 14 in. CAV. Was a German-American Abstract Expressionist painter regarded as one of the most influential art teachers of the 20th century. Serving as a mentor to such luminaries as Helen Frankenthaler, Ray Eames, and Allan Kaprow, Hoffman observed that “A teacher affects eternity, he can never tell where his influences stops.” His work emphasized the emotionally expressive potential of color, modulating the figure-ground relationships in his paintings in a method he referred to as “the push and pull.” Among his most famous works is Spring (1940), which, with its dripped and swirled painting technique, prefigured the work of his close friend Jackson Pollock. He was born on March 21, 1880 in Weissenberg, Germany and, as a young man, worked for the Bavarian government before moving to Paris in 1904 to study at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière and the Académie Colarossi. In 1915, he opened his own art school in Munich where he worked until 1930, when he was invited to teach in the United States, where would settle permanently. In 1960, Hoffmann’s work was featured in that year’s Venice Biennale, and three years later, The Museum of Modern Art in New York mounted “Hans Hoffmann and His Students,” a landmark exhibition showcasing the talents of Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts alumni. The artist died on February 17, 1966 in New York, NY at the age of 85.
