The luscious abstractions of Teruko Yokoi, surveyed in this important new book, upend the canon of American art

The art and life of Japanese abstract painter Teruko Yokoi (born 1924) subverts the well-worn narratives of abstract expressionism in the US, Europe and Japan. Having studied modern art in Tokyo after World War II, in 1953 she relocated to San Francisco, a vibrant (if still critically neglected) hub for abstract painting, and entered the California School of Fine Arts, where only a few years earlier the influential Pacific School had begun to form. She then moved to New York where she studied with Hans Hoffman at the Art Student League, and began to create the beautifully colorful canvases, with their allusions to landscapes and floral motifs, for which she has become celebrated.

Teruko Yokoi: Tokyo—New York—Paris—Bern features the artist’s work from the years 1954 to 1964, when she was moving between Tokyo, San Francisco, New York, Paris and Bern, and traces the story of a prolific, under-recognized painter.
