Hans Hofmann (Maler) (1880-1966)

"Hans Georg Albert Hofmann" (* 21. März 1880 in Weißenburg in Bayern; † 17. Februar 1966 in New York) war ein deutsch-US-amerikanischer Maler, Lehrer und Kunstprofessor, der in seinen frühen Werken eine Synthese aus Fauvismus und Kubismus anstrebte. Nach seiner Emigration in die Vereinigten Staaten gründete er in New York eine Kunstschule, die großen Einfluss auf die Entwicklung des Abstrakten Expressionismus hatte. Hofmann gilt als ’’Künstler der ersten Generation’’ der sogenannten New York School. - (Wikipedia 01.10.2017) "Hans Hofmann was an integral figure in the development of Abstract Expressionism. He studied in various art schools in Munich before moving to Paris in 1904. He returned to Munich ten years later and founded and taught his own art school from 1915 to 1930, then immigrated to the United States. In 1933, he opened a school in New York, and a year later, he had established the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts in New York and another school in Massachusetts. By 1958, he had gained a huge reputation as a teacher and turned to painting full-time. Hofmann is best known for his paintings of solid color blocks on fragmented backgrounds.
