Hans Hofmann
Yellow Vase

1942

$45,000

About

A painting by Hans Hofmann. "Yellow Vase" is still-life abstract painting, oil on panel executed in the primary colors by Post-War Abstract Expressionist Hans Hofmann. Hofmann is one of the most important figures of postwar American art, playing a pivotal role in the development of Abstract Expressionism as an influential teacher of generations of artists in both Germany and America. Combining Cubist structure and intense Fauvist color, Hofmann created a highly personal visual language, continuously exploring pictorial structures, spatial illusion and chromatic relationships and creating volume through contrasts of color, shape and surface. The work is signed in the lower right, "HH IV 7(?) 42". Provenance: Private Collection, Brooklyn Literature: Hans Hofmann catalogue raisonné of paintings, vol. 2, pg 222, fig. P370
