Franz Kline Paintings

Franz Kline (1910 – 1962) was an American Abstract Expressionist painter who was known for his distinct style of dark paint splotched over a white canvas. His contemporaries included painters such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Lee Krasner, among others. Willem de Kooning was a great inspiration to Kline and introduced him to the concept of abstract painting. Kline’s work is characterized by its energetic brushwork and bold monochromic paint application.
