Hans Hofmann (American, 1880-1986) was a German-born American painter and teacher. He is one of the most important figures of postwar American art. Hofmann began painting in Paris, where he worked alongside masters of European Modernism, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Fernand Léger, and Henri Matisse. His best-known early paintings combine Cubist structure with Fauvist color. He is celebrated for his exuberant, color-filled canvases, playing a pivotal role in the development of Abstract Expressionism.
