Further details
“Hans Hofmann is deservedly acclaimed as one of the giants of the twentieth-century abstraction. His voluptuous, muscular paintings are seen as paradigms of how essential elements of surface, shape, and hue can be made into potent carriers of emotion and drama. He is admired for his expressive command of unexpected, blazing color and for his ability to conjure up evocative space with apparently simple contrasts of density, edges, chroma, and placement...” – Karen Wilkin
