Artist of the moment……….John Opper

John Opper was an American painter associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement. John Opper was born in the year 1908.

For his artistic education Opper attended the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Chicago Academy of Art. Whilst in school and at the beginning years of his career Opper worked in a realist style. Opper began working in an abstract style after studying with famed painter Hans Hoffmann.

The artist was the recipient of many fellowships and grants including the National Endowment for the Arts and a Guggenheim fellowship.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Opper was a long tenured professor at New York University.

John Opper passed away in 1964.

I enjoy Opper’s work with the vertical stripes the best! Opper thought that the 1930s was a great time for American art. With programs like the Works Progress Administration it made other artists get together and the whole artistic community was buzzing.
