Synopsis

Hans Hofmann Works on Paper by Marcelle Polednik, Karen Wilkin, Diana Greenwold

Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) was an acclaimed Abstract Expressionist and one of the most influential art teachers of the 20th century. While his paintings have been the subject of many exhibitions and publications, his works on paper are comparatively little known, despite how central they were to his artistic practice and to the evolution of his style and technique. This is the first full-length book devoted to Hofmann's works on paper, presenting a valuable new perspective from which to appreciate the achievements of this giant of postwar art. More than fifty examples from across his long career and from many genres-including self-portraits, figural studies, interiors, landscapes, and abstractions-are all attractively illustrated in color. In addition, works in different stages of finish, from rough sketches to polished pieces, offer an intimate glimpse into Hofmann's methods and creative process.
