"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. Also included are contributions by Helen Frankenthaler and Sir Anthony Caro, and a little-known appreciation of Hofmann by Tennessee Williams."--Jacket.
