Bio from Getty ULAN: 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.
