TULSA, OK.- Hans Hofmann created an extraordinary
body of work for the architect Josep Sert’s 1950 Peruvian city plan called the
Chimbote Project.
The nine painting studies Hofmann produced for the
series of murals in this Peruvian city form a concise and inspired example of
the depth of Hofmann’s strengths as an abstract painter and modernist visionary,
and form the core of this exhibition, along with other major works from this
important year in Hofmann’s career. On view through 9 May,
