Frank Lobdell is among the most influential of the Bay area post-World War II painters. After returning from the war in the 1940's, Lobdell became a pioneer of the San Francisco Bay area school of abstract expressionism. Over the next five decades he developed a unique visual language that included figurative references which speaks to the dualities of human life - male and female, day and night, life and death. His brilliant color choices of the 1980s and '90s evoke an optimism and spiritual regeneration that make these paintings among the most important statements of his generation.
