HANS HOFMANN (1880-1966)

 
Hofmann painted "Yellow Vase" just two years before his first solo exhibition at Art of This Century gallery in New York in 1944. This vibrant work is an impromptu study that examines the breakdown of form, which in 1942 was an evolving principle of Abstract Expressionism. Hofmann was a prominent teacher at this time, and his students included Helen Frankenthaler, Allan Kaprow, Michael Goldberg, and dozens of others.
