Biography Louis Hankes
Louis Hankes studied at the Art Institute of Chicago; in 1911 he had a
studio space in the Tree Studio Building but his home was on the far
West Side. His technique resembles that of John F. Carlson.
Hankes utilized a broad but controlled brushwork in which forms are
defined by dynamic strokes of impasto pigment, and a basically
sculpturesque treatment of nature's massive forms. Spatial depth
is usually laid out with utmost clarity. Broken brushwork and
blue and violet shadows are part of the technique of Hankes: remnants
of the impressionist aesthetic.
