Hans Hofmann (1880-1966)

Hans Hofmann was born in Germany but is considered an American painter. His work is generally characterized as abstract expressionism, and he is also known for his push/pull spatial theories, which suggests an alternative to one point perspective. Instead, the use of color, shape, and light could create a push and pull effect that creates the illusion of space and motion.
