Franz Kline (1910 –1962) was an American painter best known for large black and white paintings bearing abstract motifs. He started out as a realist with a fluent style that he perfected during his academic training. After settling in New York and meeting Willem de Kooning, he began to develop his artistic technique through powerful forms in black and white, intended to translate a physical form and a presence the viewer could feel within his art prints. Franz Kline had achieved immense international recognition during his life and he began to reintroduce color to his black-and-white palette.
