Harley Red, 1959-60. Franz Kline (1910-1962) was an American painter associated with the abstract expressionist movement centered in NY in the 1940s & 1950s. He was labeled an "action painter" because of his seemingly spontaneous and intense style, focusing less on figures or imagery, but on the actual brush strokes & use of canvas. For most of Kline's [mature and representative] work, however, as the phrase goes, "spontaneity is practiced".
Franz Jozef Kline was an American painter mainly associated with the abstract expressionist movement centered around New York in the 1940s and 1950s. He used stark tonal contrasts and variations of scale to explore gestural movement in his Abstract Expressionist paintings.
