The Hans Hofmann Legacy: Creative Diversity

Hans Hofmann taught the exciting new approaches of European modernism to the thousands of students who flocked to his Provincetown and New York schools. From 1935 to 1957, his classes inspired a new direction in American art. ”Although Hofmann advocated very specific rules and approaches, he was acutely aware of his students’ individuality and encouraged their creative instincts. As a result, the diversity of styles his students achieved is remarkable” says Deborah Forman, Guest Curator for the show.

This exhibit focuses on a selection of his students who, armed with his teachings, created a variety of distinctly innovative American art forms. In addition to several of Hofmann’s paintings, this show will include the works of 27 artists, including Paul Resika, John Grillo, George McNeil, Robert Beauchamp, and Robert Henry, who have had a close connection to the Provincetown art colony.

“We are thrilled to have Deborah Forman, a significant contributor to the art history of Cape Cod, as our Guest Curator for this exhibition,” said CCMoA Director Edith (Deede) Tonelli.

Along with art from the CCMoA collection, works on loan from the Berta Walker Gallery, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Cove Gallery and local collectors will present a broad view of Hofmann’s influence.

In her comments for the exhibition Forman says:

The Museum is open during the winter from Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
