Jules Olitski

Jules Olitski (March 27, 1922 – February 4, 2007) was a Russian-born American painter who was instrumental in the development of the Color Field school.

Like his contemporaries Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis, Olitski stained the surface of his canvases in a technique that rejected the gestural brushwork of the then-popular Abstract Expressionist artists. With their emphasis on material, surface, and color's emotional strength, his signature works eliminated the illusion of depth and any evidence of the artist's touch.

His abstract "spray paintings" of the 1960s are considered landmark works of this movement.


Jules Olitski(1922年3月27日 - 2007年2月4日)是一位出生于俄罗斯的美国画家,他在Color Field学校的发展中发挥了重要作用。 像他的同时代人Helen Frankenthaler和莫里斯路易斯一样,奥利茨基用一种拒绝当时流行的抽象表现主义艺术家的手势笔触的技术弄脏了他的画布表面。他的标志性作品强调材料,表面和色彩的情感力量,消除了深度的幻觉和艺术家触摸的任何证据。 他20世纪60年代的抽象“喷漆”被认为是这一运动的标志性作品。
