Chief- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Franz Kline

painting of woman enjoying painting by Franz Kline

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


In the late 1940s, chancing to project some of his many drawings on the wall, Franz Kline found that their lines, when magnified, gained abstraction and sweeping force.

Many canvases after this discovery reproduce a drawing on a much larger scale. The miniature becomes the monumental.

'Chief' was the name of a locomotive Kline remembered from his childhood, when he had loved the railway. Many viewers see machinery in Kline's images, and there are lines in 'Chief' that imply speed and power as they rush off the edge of the canvas.
