    JOHN PHILIP HULTBERG (1922 - 2005). Abstract Expressionist Painter, Lithography.

    John Hultberg was born in 1922 in Berkeley, California. Hultberg attended Fresno State College graduating in 1943 prior to entering World War II where he became a Navy lieutenant and served until 1946. After the war and with the assistance of the G.I. Bill he attended the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute). His teachers at the California School of Fine Arts included Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still and he was friends with Richard Diebenkorn who was also a mentor. In 1948 Hultberg along with James Budd Dixon, Walter Kuhlman, Frank Lobdell and George Stillman produced a portfolio of 17 lithographs which has been acknowledged as a landmark in Abstract Expressionist printmaking and the six artists became known as, “The Sausalito Six”.

    In 1949 Hultberg moved to New York City and attended the Art Students League until 1951. A frequent traveler, he traveled to Paris in 1954 and while living there he received the Guggenheim Fellowship and continued to live in Europe until 1956. In 1956 Hultberg exhibited at the 6th Annual Exhibition at the Stable Gallery in New York. In 1963 Hultberg received the Ford Foundation fellowship to work at Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles. In 1963 Hultberg would return to San Francisco to teach at the San Francisco Art Institute for a couple of years before traveling back east to live in Maine in 1971. Hultberg would travel frequently between Maine and New York and taught in New York City at Art Students League from 1990 until his death in 2005.
