There has been a renewed interest, both from institutions and the commercial world, in re-evaluating artists active during the years following WWII to well into the 1970's.

We are seeing museum and gallery shows mounted and prices rise for a host of artists who have been under the radar over the last 20 years including Frank Stella, Paul Jenkins, Jules Olitski, Sheila Hicks, Sam Gilliam and Lee Bontecou to mention a few. 

Jack Youngerman (b. 1926) has had a long and prolific career with major museum shows at the Guggenheim and the MoMA amongst others. Youngerman is known for his large-scaled boldly colored compositions that alternate between pure abstraction and highly stylized depictions of flowers. Youngerman often synthesizes the best characteristics of early Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly creating something highly original and confident. 

Youngerman studied in Paris in the late 1940's on the GI Bill and was greatly influenced by the European modernists notably the precise (and surreal?) cutout shapes of Jean Arp or the saturated colors and stylized florals of Henri Matisse.

A prime example of Youngerman's aesthetic and artistry, this big, bold, blue work showcases his elegant abstraction of a signature floral, almost wing-like, figuration.
