Jules Olitski, Larro Two, Acrylique sur toile, 1972, 168 x 183 cm

Jules Olitski

The American Jules Olitski developed a process of spraying paint and pigments on canvas from 1964 that allowed him to structure the surface and play with the depth of the paint using a spray gun. After representing the United States at the Venice Biennale two years later, he continued to experiment and refined this technique, wanting colours to float in the air.
