As a young man in Paris, Hans Hofmann participated in the artistic revolutions before World War I and then ran an influential art school in Germany between the wars. He came to America in 1930 and established schools in New York and Provincetown that have had a profound impact on the development of American art. By presenting his life's work, from the rare landscapes and portraits of his early years to the majestic late abstractions, this vibrantly colorful book establishes Hofmann's major contribution to the art of this century.
