Jack Roth, who exhibited in one of the first major exhibitions of Abstract Expressionism alongside Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, considered himself a Color Field Painter, though he also actively pursued interests in chemistry, mathematics, and poetry. During his time at California School of Fine Arts, Roth studied with Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, and Richard Diebenkorn. His paintings are recognizable for thin contour lines and soft forms, in addition to an expressive use of color; though these works did not often contain imagery, they were sometimes based on landscapes and images. Roth also made more figural and image-based mixed-media assemblages in shadow-box frames, and included collage elements in some of his paintings.
