Overview

As a teacher, Hans Hofmann left his mark on generations of artists in both Europe and America. He had an equally brilliant career as a painter. Hofmann operated a famous teaching studio first in Europe and then in New York at a pivotal moment when a new kind of subjective, non-figurative art was emerging as the dominant movement. His work is insistent upon color, texture, and form, and his astoundingly liberated later canvases are more than expressions of a creative process; they are, in the words of art historian Robert Goldwater, "...less the culmination of a life-long development than a kind of rebirth, an entirely new, youthful phase."
