Here are some videos on Hans Hoffmann. Hoffman was the European artist most responsible for bringing the insights of European artists to America, where he exposed them to his students in Provincetown. He was an extraordinary painter in that he was able to articulate his thoughts about painting to his students without giving a prescription for what they themselves should paint.
Here’s a video you might enjoy, Steve, since we were lately discussing vertical canvases. The camera work is a little dodgy but at the end you get a good distance shot of all the vertical pieces.
Many of his insights are collected in his book, The Search for the Real.
