Paul Jenkins (American, 1923-2012) was an abstract expressionist painter trained at the Art Students League of New York under the tutelage of Yasuo Kuniyoshi. In 1953, Jenkins traveled to Italy and Spain, settling in Paris. His first solo exhibition was held in 1954 at Studio Paul Facchetti on the rue de Lille. The artist’s first solo exhibition in New York was held in 1956 at the Martha Jackson Gallery, where the Whitney Museum of American Art purchased the painting “Divining Rod.” In 1959, Peggy Guggenheim purchased “Osage” from Jenkins’ studio in Paris. Guggenheim continued to be a patron of Jenkin’s works. In the 1960s, the artist transitioned from working in oil on canvas to acrylic and placed sculpture at the forefront of his works in the 1970s. In 1977, the artist began working in watercolor on canvas.
