Biography Robert Richenburg
An Abstract Expressionist painter and also a long-time art teacher,
Robert Richenburg was known for "ominous paintings in which fields of
black were punctuated by bursts of color and line." Of his
signature works, a critic in a 1959 review wrote: "This painting must
symbolize the most terrifying aspects of metropolitan life."
Richenburg was a student of Hans Hofmann, and was very much a part of
the hey-day activities of Abstract Expressionism in the mid 1950s in
New York City. In 1951, after serving in World War II, he was
invited to exhibit at the Ninth Street Show, which was the exhibition,
supervised by dealer Leo Castelli, that helped establish the New York
School of painting.
