Paul Jenkins (1923-2012)

Jenkins' works have come to represent the spirit, vitality, and invention of post war American abstraction. Employing an unorthodox approach to paint application, Jenkins is as much identified with the process of controlled paint-pouring and canvas manipulation as with the gem-like veils of transparent and translucent color which have characterized his work since the late 1950s. Often he used an ivory knife or a brush for finishing, but never allowed a stroke to show. Widely exhibited, Paul Jenkins' work is included in museum collections worldwide.
