Hans Hofmann's painting - The Gate 1959-60
Hofmann was not only recognized for his modernist paintings but also for being a teacher of art and a modernist theorist. Through his teaching and work Hofmann managed to widen the understanding of modernism in America. In my opinion I believe that Modernist art has widened the possibilities within the creative world. It allows people to express themselves a lot more freely and gives us something that is different.
I believe us as people have changed since the start of Postmodern art, we are now looking for other ways to be creative and express are artistic sides and modernist art offers this.
