Hans Hartung (1904-1989) was a French painter of German origin, one of the greatest representatives of abstract art and the father of the tachisme.
Large retrospectives of his work were presented in Turin in 1966, at the musée national d'Art moderne in Paris in 1968, then in Houston, Quebec City, Montreal and New York. Hans Hartung received the grand prix des Arts of the city of Paris in 1970. For his 70th birthday in 1974, the musée de Cologne dedicated a new retrospective to him and the Cimaise magazine a special issue.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York exhibited thirty of his greatest works. In 1977, Hartung was elected to the Académie des beaux-arts and the Centre Pompidou organised a wandering exhibition of his engravings and lithographs.
His last message is in this quote: ‘Art seems to me to be a way to cheat death’
Hartung made few engravings and only 30 wood engravings; most are unsigned.
This copy is hand-signed by the artist and in perfect condition.
