About

Hassel Smith (1915, Michigan, U.S.A. – 2007, Wiltshire, England) was a painter related to the American Abstract Expressionism. His first solo exhibition was in 1947 at the California Palace of The Legion of Honor belonging to the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF). Other important exhibitions include: “Hassel Smith: Paintings, 1954-1975”, San Francisco Museum of Arts in 1975; group exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York in 1962; “Ferus”, Gagosian Gallery, New York in 2002. In addition, his artwork can be found among the Tate Modern Museum collection in England. Starting in the 70s, Smith began to work on a new series of paintings he called Measured Works. Inspired by bebop jazz legends like Charlie Parker, and his attempt to subvert the idea that geometry is necessarily orderly, Smith made his paintings with ruler and compass well into the 80s. "About" is one of the bright, graphic and mysterious paintings that Smith created during his hard-edge period.
