Karl Benjamin

Karl J. Benjamin (December 29, 1925 – July 26, 2012) was an American painter of energetic geometric abstractions, who rose to fame in 1959 as one of four Los Angeles-based Abstract Classicists and as soon as produced a critically acclaimed body of take effect that explores a immense array of color relationships. Working quietly at his house in Claremont, CA, he developed a wealthy vocabulary of colors and hard-edge shapes in masterful compositions of tightly balanced repose or high-spirited energy. At subsequently intuitive and systematic, the artiste is, in the words of critic Christopher Knight, "a colorist of good wit and inventiveness."
