February 21 – May 9, 2010
Hans Hofmann created an extraordinary body of work for architect Josep Sert’s 1950 Peruvian city plan called the Chimbote Project. The nine painting studies Hofmann produced for a series of murals form a concise and inspired example of the depth of Hofmann’s strengths as an abstract painter and modernist visionary and form the core of this exhibition, along with other major works from this important year in Hofmann’s career.
The opening will be accompanied by a lecture:
