Newman, Barnett

(1905-70)
   American painter. Born in New York, he studied at the Art Students League and later worked as an art teacher. He held a number of one-man shows, and subsequently taught at the University of Saskatchewan, and the University of Pennsylvania. He was noted for abstract expressionist paintings in which large areas of flat colour were divided into sections by narrow stripes of a second or third colour.
