Ad Reinhardt (1913-1967)

Adolph Frederick "Ad" Reinhardt (December 24, 1913  August 30, 1967) was an hook painter involved in New York beginning in the 1930s and continued through the 1960s. He was a member of the American Abstract Artists and was a part of the movement central on the Betty Parsons Gallery that became famous as conceptual expressionism. He was also a member of The Club, the meeting set for the New York School abstract expressionist artists during the 1940s and 1950s. He wrote and lectured extensively on art and was a major influence on conceptional art, minimal art and liver painting. Most renowned for his "black" or "ultimate" pictures, he taken to be painting the "last paintings" that anyone can paint. He believed in a doctrine of art he called Art-as-Art and used his writing and biting cartoons to recommend for formal art and against what he discovered as "the disreputable uses of artists-as-artists".
