Biography:
Born in Germany, Hans Hartung moved to Paris in 1935 and became a French citizen in 1946. Hartung began painting in 1922 and formulated his own abstract style. He fought in the French Foreign Legion in World War II. He suffered a serious injury in 1944 in which one of his legs had to be amputated without anesthesia. After the war, he became known as a leader of the Art Informel movement. In 1960, Hartung was one out of two winners of the painting prize at the Venice Biennale.
