  • Description
    ARTHUR HOLMAN (1926 - 2015). Painter.

    "Arthur Holman's abstract paintings of the 1950s used regular, abbreviated brush strokes-almost a kind of pointillism-to build subtly modulated surfaces of extremely close-valued colors." Holman's abstractions were based upon impressions of nature: "natural light, natural spaces. In the 1960s and 1970s he turned to more clearly defined, visionary landscapes bathed in radiant colors and reminiscent of the paintings of Bonnard." (Albright).

    Post War California artist, Arthur Holman studied at the University of New Mexico, BFA 1951; Hans Hofmann School 1951; and the California School of Fine Arts 1953.
