Biography  
Sam Lawrence (Samuel) Feinstein


Feinstein’s paintings have a brilliance about them that emanates from his dynamic use of color. His work is lyrical and robust, and almost sculptural in some cases, with his use of thick layers of paint.  Hans Hofmann said, about Feinstein, in 1952, “Mr. Feinstein is a highly gifted and versatile artist with a pronounced standing of his own…and with a deep understanding of the plastic problems in painting.”

Sam Feinstein was born in Russia in 1915, and emigrated through Ellis Island with his parents when he was five years old. Raised in Philadelphia, he attended art school in his hometown, at the Philadelphia Museum College of Art. He graduated in 1936 with honors, and later returned as a professor. <  ...  Displaying 750 of 3889 characters.
