Paul Behnke blogs about the work of painter Felrath Hines (1913 - 1993).

Behnke quotes Floyd Herman who wrote of Hine's work: "His abstractions synthesized a keen sensibility of an accomplished draughtsman with the poetry and inventive structure that linked his work to the American abstract tradition of Stuart Davis, Al Held, Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko. Hines did not see abstract art as too personal, or too introspective, or too esoteric."
