John Stephan an American abstract expressionist




John Stephan worked as a WPA artist through the 1930s. He truly came of age as an artist after World War II. An important figure in the development of Abstract Expressionism, Stephan showed at the Betty Parsons Gallery and counted among his close associates Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, and Barnett Newman. With poet (and then wife) Ruth Stephan, he published The Tiger’s Eye, an influential “little magazine” that chronicled the creative ferment of the period.
