From the publisher:
Drawing on extensive documentation and unpublished sources, this collective publication proposes an ambitious re-examination of Hans Hartung's prolific work and eventful personal trajectory as an actor in a broader history of abstraction, which also provides a fertile matrix for many other reflections on twentieth-century art.
German-French painter Hans Hartung (1904-1989) is one of the most important representatives of abstract art. His work is associated with Lyrical abstraction, Informalism, and Ecole de Paris.
