HANS HOFMANN

HANS HOFMANN (1880-1966)

Goodman\'s book, with essays by Clement Greenberg and Irving Sandler and the artist\'s own statements, provides an excellent introduction to the life and work of the man frequently called the dean of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism. However, most of the information is available elsewhere. Greenberg\'s essay is a reprint (see his Hans Hofmann , Editions George Fall, 1961). The views of both Sandler and Goodman are already well represented in their numerous books, catalogs, and articles (e.g., Goodman\'s Hans Hofmann , LJ 9/1/86). Thus, this catalog--compiled for an exhibit organized by the Whitney Museum--offers information admirably suited to its function but no significant new insight into either Hofmann or his work.
