Frederick Hammersley

American, (1919–2009)
Frederick Hammersley was an American abstract painter. Hammersley first gained widespread acclaim when his paintings were featured in the landmark Four Abstract Classicists exhibit, which also showcased the work of Karl Benjamin, John McLaughlin, and Lorser Feitelson. This 1959 exhibit was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and curated by Jules Langsner, who, with Peter Selz, coined the term "hard-edge painting" to describe the work of these artists. The exhibit was praised for its presentation of cool abstractions which were very different from the emotional ones of the established abstract expressionist movement.
