Alexander Nemerov, Department Chair & Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities and Lucinda Barnes, former chief curator and director of programs and collections at the Berkeley Art Museum will be in conversation on the Anderson Collection's Fall Euphony by Hans Hofmann which will be included in the exhibition Hans Hofmann: The Nature of Abstraction at BAMPFA in February 2019.


“The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color.”

-Hans Hofmann
Hans Hofmann (1880–1966) is one of the most important figures of postwar American art. Celebrated for his exuberant, color-filled canvases, and renowned as an influential teacher for generations of artists—first in his native Germany, then in New York and Provincetown—Hofmann played a pivotal role in the development of Abstract Expressionism.
