T1982-H19 by Hans Hartung
by sabine7 / March 14, 2011


The late abstract expressionist Hans Hartung dedicated the last three years of his life to producing as many canvases as he could, after being told he was terminally ill. The results are full of energy and drama. The colours range from soft to intense and Hartung used items such as rollers, garden rakes and olive branches, along with spray paint, to create large paintings full of emotion. These works are described as expressing "ideas of infinity and the sublime on the one hand, and existential inner torment on the other," but can be viewed as just plain stirring as well.
