INQUIRIES

Emerson Woelffer (1914 - 2003): An “Abstract Surrealist,” Woelffer developed an abstract style characterized by saturated colors and bold, jagged forms that hinted at symbolism and figuration.  Drawing influence from László Moholy-Nagy (for whom he worked for seven years), Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, and Roberto Matta.  Woelffer taught at several major American art schools, including a stint at Black Mountain College at the invitation of architect and inventor Buckminster Fuller.
