Artist of the moment……Jack Youngerman

Jack Youngerman is an American abstract/ minimalist artist. Jack Youngerman was born in St. Louis, Missouri in the year 1926. Youngerman is a painter, jewelry designer, sculptor, and print maker.

Youngerman attended college at the University of North Carolina before graduating from the University of Missouri. He also served in the United States Navy.

The artist also studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts located in Paris.

In this clip we view a group show that features Jack Youngerman’s work. His is the first piece of art:

Youngerman married a well known french actress.

The artist is part of many prominent collections including the Denver Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Youngerman has won a Guggenheim Fellowship and also awards from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $60,000. The artist worked in oils, gouache, prints, and bronzes.

What I enjoy most about Youngerman’s style is his sense of graphic design. Many pieces seem to be very similar to First Nations art, especially those works featuring black, red, and white. His style is very similar to the First Nations style of art work, but with more modern line work.
