About

Born in Salt Lake City in 1919, Frederick Hammersley moved to the Bay Area at a young age and first studied art in San Francisco. Stationed in Paris during World War II, he took the opportunity to meet Pablo Picasso and Constantin Brancusi, as well as study at the École des Beaux Arts. Upon returning to the United States, Hammersley enrolled in the Chouinard Art Institute (which became the California Institute of the Arts) in Los Angeles. He was included in the groundbreaking 1959 exhibition Four Abstract Classicists, which launched the hard-edge painting movement and anticipated the style known as Minimalism.
