Hans Hofmann was an important educator and influence on the development of American Abstract Expressionism in the 40`s and 50`s. Lee Krasner was one of his students and Jackson Pollock probably developed his drip technique after seeing Hofmann`s early experiments using this approach. This paperback book provides a good overview of Hofmann`s work; his teaching career and developing styles and techniques - it has 117 illustrations, 58 in colour with few double-page spreads, so no risk of breaking the book spine! There are also sections on the artist's statements, technique, chronology etc.
There are few affordable books available on Hofmann in the UK so this Abbeville volume is self-recommending; if you are interested in abstract painting this is worth your consideration; it is indispensable if you are interested in the Abstract Expressionist movement.
The Abbeville series has been around for many years now and most of the volumes are good value, this is no exception - a good addition to your bookshelf.

The dearth of affordable books on the late great Hans Hofmann make this a truly great buy. As with all Abbeville/Modern Masters publications this is well written, well illustrated and well put together, can't fault it.
