About this title


«Any work of art has to embody the vital principles of organic growth. These principles are to be found in nature. The architectural well-balanced construction can be observed in the smallest plant, the rhythm, harmony, relationship, all the fundamentals are seen in it.»
Recollections of John von Wicht.
Nearly a half century lies between the meticulous nature studies of the young German and the lyrical, abstract works of the mature American from the 1950's and 60's. As a pioneering member of the American Abstract Artists, he strives for individual abstract expression. In his late oeuvre, after having worked through all phases in the evolution of abstract painting, von Wicht develops an unmistakable, personal stroke and thereby his own form of abstraction.

About the Author:

The dissertation was supervised by Prof. Jürg Meyer zur Capellen at the University of Freiburg.
