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.
