JACK YOUNGERMAN "BLUE/YELLOW" LITHO, 1968
Jack Youngerman (b. 1926) is one of our favorite American abstract artists.
We believe that he is ripe for a re-evaluation. (As we've seen happen with many of his peers including Frank Stella, Paul Jenkins, Jules Olitski, Sheila Hicks and Lee Bontecou to mention a few.)
Youngerman has had a long and prolific career with major museum shows at the Guggenheim and the MoMA amongst others.
Working in bold saturated colors, Youngerman often reduces common forms from nature to their simplest shape. This iconic and uplifting work is a paradigm of his practice.
Youngerman often synthesizes the best characteristics of Robert Motherwell and Ellsworth Kelly creating something highly original and confident.
Youngerman studied in Paris in the late 1940's on the GI Bill and was greatly influenced by the European modernists notably the precise cutout shapes of Jean Arp and the primary colors and stylized florals of Henri Matisse.
