Hans Hofmann : a retrospective by Karen Wilkin( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The selection of seventy paintings featured here highlight every stage of Hans Hofmann career, with a generous selection from his major works of the 1960s. His extraordinary use of rich, vibrant colors in striking structural compositions distinguish him as a modern master. As a teacher, he brought to America knowledge of the work of European modernists (he had met Picasso, Braque, and Matisse in Paris, where he studied as a young man), and developed his own philosophy of art, which he expressed in numerous essays. One of these statements - which counts among the most important of his discussions on the role of color in painting - is included here

Hans Hofmann : the artist's materials by Dawn V Rogala( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This gorgeously illustrated book examines the practice and materials of a prominent Abstract Expressionist The career of the German-American painter and educator Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) describes the arc of artistic modernism from pre-World War I Munich and Paris to mid-twentieth-century Greenwich Village. His career also traces the transatlantic engagement of modern painting with the materials of its own making, a relationship that is perhaps still not completely understood. In these interrelated narratives, Hofmann is a central protagonist, providing a vital link between nineteenth- and twentieth-century art practice and between European and American modernism. The remarkable vitality of his later work affords insight not only into the style but also the literal substance of this formative period of artistic and material innovation. This richly illustrated book, the fourth in the Getty Conservation Institute's Artist's Materials series, presents a thorough examination of Hofmann's late-career materials. Initial chapters present an informative overview of Hofmann's life and work in Europe and America and discuss his crucial role in the development of Abstract Expressionism. Subsequent chapters present a detailed analysis of Hofmann's materials and techniques and explore the relationship of the artist's mature palette to shifts in the style and aging characteristics of his paintings. The book concludes with lessons for the conservation of modernist paintings generally, and particularly those that incorporate both traditional and modern paint media. This book will be of value to conservators, art historians, conservation scientists, and general readers with an interest in modern art

Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) is one of the most important abstract painters of the twentieth century. Born in Weissenburg, Germany, he attended Moritz Heymann's private art school in Munich, after which he relocated to Paris, where he took classes at the Ecole de la Grande Chaumière and met artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Juan Gris. He was a friend of Robert Delaunay's, whose color compositions impressed him as much as the work of the Cubists. Hofmann established himself in the United States in 1932, where he ultimately exercised crucial influence over an entire generation of postwar American artists through his art schools in New York and Provincetown. He is regarded as a catalyst of Abstract Expressionism, and influenced painters such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell, and Barnett Newman. This publication presents the life and work of Hans Hofmann and sheds light on his theories of art.0Exhibition: Museum Pfalzgalerie, Kaiserslautern, Germany (09.03.-16.06.2013)
