Tim Coppens Meets Franz Kline

Tim Coppens Meets Franz Kline


If you're wondering why some of the pieces in the Fall 2013 Tim Coppens collection might seem familiar, maybe you've recently been to a modern art museum. Franz Kline was a modernist painter who was part of the abstract expressionist movement in New York in the 1940s and 50s. He was famous for his abstract paintings of black streaks on a white canvas. Several shirts and coats in the Tim Coppens show have a similar pattern of black streaks on white. And we love it when a collection reminds us of one of the great painters of the 20th century.
