Taro Yamamoto American, 1919-1994


American-Japanese non-objective painter Taro Yamamoto was an integral part of the Post-War Abstract Expressionist Art Movement that consumed the New York art scene in the 1950’s along with such well known artists Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Franz Kline. A student at the Art Students League of New York from 1950-1, he studied under Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Morris Kanter, and Byron Brown. Later the next year he studied with Vaclav Vytlacil and then at the iconic Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts in New York.
