Hans Burkhardt: Surreal Abstractions

February 5, 2016

Lot 038, Hans Burkhardt, My L.A. (1938)

The singular painting style of Swiss-born artist Hans Burkhardt is praised for its striking fusion of representation, abstraction, and surrealism. A longtime influential presence in Los Angeles art circles, Burkhardt has been called “Goya’s spiritual heir” for his compelling artistic indictments of the brutality of war. On February 21, 2016, LAMA will offer an important early work by Burkhardt, as well as two mid-career paintings from the 1960s.
