George Hofmann - Painting Life

As part of Henri Art Magazine's series on Romanticism, painter George Hofmann recounts his personal experiences as a painter beginning in the 1960's.  Hofmann was friendly with both Greenberg and the Color Field painters as well as the Minimalist painters and sculptors at Hunter, where he taught.  Hofmann gives a first hand account of the art world at the time and describes how he came to feel that by remaining a painter he was taking up a "Romantic" position.  He concludes with a generous explanation of his studio practice.
