Torches Mauve

Franz Kline (American, 1910–1962)
Toward the end of his career Franz Kline went beyond a predominantly black and white palette to use strong colors for the sweeping gestures of his brushwork. This painting takes its title from the tube paint he purchased from Joseph Torch's art supply store in New York City.
