Hans Burkhardt (1904 1994) immigrated to New York from Switzerland in 1924 and became associated with what was to become The New York School and the birth of Abstract Expressionism. By 1937 he had moved to Los Angeles, thus creating a bridge between New York and Los Angeles. Burkhardts contribution to the advancement of modern art in Los Angeles cannot be denied and is only now being fully recognized.
