c 25"H X 19"W: This drawing was made in Provincetown where Hofmann held his summer classes. After completing this work, paying attention to shifting planes, negative space and the push and pull of directional forces, Hofman checked it with his charcoal and pronounce, Ah, zas is right."
I tore this drawing and moved sections about as Hofmann had demonstrated in his lessons. Hofmann saw a static composition as without life. This was a way of achieving dynamism.
