Hoffman at the Rose.

The following images are clips and wholes of paintings by Hans Hoffman currently on display at Brandeis' Rose Art Museum. I was attracted to some of these for their colors and composition, and to others because their popularity despite the lack of representational rendering made even more acceptable the use of abstract color splashes and squiggles for American painters. Kind of funny - I mean, Hoffman must have had a good sense of humor, and what I perceive as a general acceptance of this kind of work is pleasantly gleeful.
