Tachism - abstract painting - Hans Hartung

Hans Hartung (21 September 1904 – 7 December 1989) was a German-French painter, known for his gestural abstract style. He was also a decorated World War II veteran of the French Foreign Legion.
Hans Hartung was born in Germany. He studies at the School of Fine Arts in Munich.He settles down in Paris in 1935 when he is bound and exposes with Kandinsky, Mondrian, Miro and Calder. In 1944, he becomes soldier in the foreign legion and got hurt, he must be amputated of the right leg and in 1945, he is naturalized French.
During his first period, Hans Hartung paints watercolors and abstract paintings. After the war, he translates his nightmares and his suffering into abstract paintings. He recovers the canvas of hatchings and whirlwinds, drawn with India ink, oil or pastel. He thinks that only an informal painting, a «stain-ism» can tell the despair of the post-war years.
From 1960, he works on large formats with acrylic, alternately struck by fast scratched touches. He uses branches, brooms, combs to stigmatize his paint.
He is considered as the leader of «the Lyric Abstraction» today and as one of the biggest representatives of abstract art.
