Documents the struggles, innovations and triumphs of one of the New York School's most daring artists.
Hosted by Dustin Hoffman, the film portrays Franz Kline, best known for his vigorous, large-scale black and white abstractions. Kline (1910-1962) is one of the preeminent painters of our century. Rare personal interviews with Kline?s contemporaries explore the iconoclastic spirit of the artist. Beginning in his childhood in Pennsylvania?s coal towns to his bohemian lifestyle in the Greenwich Village of the 1930?s and 40?s, Franz Kline Remembered documents the struggles, innovations, and triumphs of one of the New York School?s most daring artists.
