Kimber Smith – Malerei 1956-1980
Like many American artists of his generation, Kimber Smith (1922–1981) was drawn to Paris at the beginning of the 50s, where he settled and worked for over a decade. Paris brought him distance to Abstract Expressionism, which then reigned in New York, and recourse to European painting traditions: first of all Matisse and Bonnard, much later Kupka and Kirchner. Within the orbit of Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell and others, Kimber Smith developed a marked lyrical and expressive painting style that in the early 60s began increasingly to concentrate on simple forms: the rhombus, the rectangle, the circle. With this pictorial vocabulary he painted spontaneous, powerful canvases, whose improvisation recall jazz, an affinity to which Smith and his art friends cultivated.
