After The Party – 1977

Unframed In Excellent Condition

John Hultberg (1922-2005) is considered an abstract realist. He studied at the California School of Fine Arts and was a comtemporary of Clay Spohn, Richard Diebenkorn, David Park, Clyfford Still and Mark Rothko. He articulates strong forms and design, balanced by forceful use of color.

Hultberg’s palatte of vibrant colors and use of wet gestural marks expresses a sense of motion and dynamism and serves to to make landscapes, still lifes, and real-life scenes more ambiguous and expressive.

Though at first these seem like purely abstract images, upon closer study we discover an attention to detail which give each print a distinct sense of time and place. It is this mixture of the abstract and the concrete which bring our interest back to examine these images again and again.

Hulberg’s works are in many notable collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Museum of Modern Art, New York City.
