Happy birthday to German-born American abstract expressionist painter Hans Hofmann. One might see this as just a painting of squares and rectangles, but Hofmann used a signature style as a way to create a natural light through his “push and pull” method of color and spatial relationships. “Lumen Naturale,” 1962, by Hans Hofmann (© Estate of Hans Hofmann/Artists Rights Society [ARS], New York)
