The painter Paul Jenkins belongs to the American painters of abstract expressionism, who acted out their emotions and spontaneity in their works, and who despised regulation. Jenkins’ distinguishing marks were diluted, yet eminently vibrant colours, which he let flow out extensively. It is only later he began to work with thicker layers of paint. Paul Jenkins has ateliers in New York and Paris, but travels the world a lot, so as to be inspired by the colour compositions of other cultures and incorporate them into his works. Jenkins’ works can be found in famous museums of modern art worldwide, such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Tate Gallery in London. In 1964 he took part in the documenta III.
