He lived until he was 67, he took his own life, such as many other famous artists did before him.
He was born in Latvia, which is not in the US.
He started college at Yale for a law degree or a degree in engineering and dropped out and went to Art Students League under the name Max Weber.
When he was ten years old he moved to the US with his family.
He wanted to change the way the Americans looked at abstract art, during the time of war he wanted to put some of that in his work.
I think he had people think more outside the box with his work, instead of just a plain old picture he added originality to his work and made art fun!!
That is my favorite piece because I love those colors, they work very well together. I can feel the emotion through the painting.
