New York Art World ®  - Commentary Index - Artists - Themes

One of the most influential art teachers of the 20th century, Hans Hoffman pioneered a method of improvisational painting that helped shape the development of abstract art after World War II.


The Golden Wall, 1961 features his trademark "push and pull" technique: geometric shapes that animate the canvas by seeming to shift and overlap.

1880 - 1966
