monotype, 1985, signed, dated lower right
Comments: Born in Basel, Switzerland on Dec. 20, 1904. Arriving in NYC in 1924, Burkhardt became a student of Arshile Gorky at the Grand Central School of Arts and involved with a group of European émigrés who espoused Abstract Expressionism. When he relocated to Los Angeles in 1937, he became a vital link between the avant garde movements on both coasts. In 1991 the city of Los Angeles honored the artist by proclaiming Hans Burkhardt Week. He continued to live and work in Los Angeles until his demise on April 22, 1994.
