AARP Painter Supreme

It is interesting to consider Hans Hofmann's career trajectory today, a time when many art careers are made while artists are in their twenties and thirties. Carl Belz ponders Hofmann's influence and unusual late-in-life prodigiousness. Unlike the other Abstract Expressionist painters who were younger, Belz writes, "Hofmann was comfortable with the meaning of his enterprise; he had nothing to prove and was content to move his painting along at its own pace."
