Abstract:

Hans Hofmann’s first solo exhibition in New York was held at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century Gallery in 1944. Exuberant and powerful, the exhibited works showcased the breadth of his abilities from his manipulation of visual space to the emotive qualities of form and color in his pictorial compositions. As Cynthia Goodman notes in her essay for the current exhibition, this body of paintings and drawings, some originally seen in Guggenheim’s gallery, was significant because “it provided the first opportuinty for the New York art world to see his work” and firmly established Hofmann as “part of the critical dialogue but also an inextricable presence in the development of the then-nascent New York school of painting.”
