HANS HOFMANN (1880-1966)

 
"Yellow Vase" was painted just two years before Hoffmans 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.  Hoffman was a prominent teacher at the time of the work's execution- his students included Helen Frankenthaler, Allan Kaprow, Michael Goldberg, and dozens of others.
