Lorser Feitelson
American, 1898–1978
Follow

Lorser Feitelson was born on the East Coast and studied in New York and Paris before moving to Southern California, where he rose to prominence in the 1950s as one of the founders of Hard Edge Painting. Feitelson was profoundly influenced by the work of Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, and the Italian Futurists, and he began his career producing formally experimental figurative drawings and paintings. By the 1940s he was painting geometric abstractions that he called “magical space forms”—restrained counterpoints to the Abstract Expressionism of the New York School. He continued to hone and reduce his style so that he was eventually producing single lines of paint in open fields of canvas, such as Untitled (February) (1970).
