R.I.P. Paul Jenkins


Artist Paul Jenkins passed away in New York on 9th June 2012 at the age of 88. Jenkins is one of the important artists classified as lyrical abstractionist painters. Lyrical abstraction is a movement also classified as painterly abstraction. Jenkins is well known for his signature fluid painting style. The term lyrical abstraction seems very apt when one sees his beautifully colored, rhythmic paintings. His paintings have been collected by several renowned art collections and museums across the world.

Here are some of his most remarkable works. But before that here is a clip from a 1978 movie called 'An unmarried woman', where the movie makers have used Paul Jenkins’s studio to film this scene. The painter in the video is not Jenkins himself but an actor. It is a rare chance to get an idea on how Jenkins might have painted his unique large scale fluid paintings in his studio.
