Born in New York City, George McNeil studied at the Pratt Institute, the Art Students League, the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts and Columbia University. In 1935 he joined the Federal Art Project of the WPA, and in 1936 he helped form the American Abstract Artists.
Known for his vibrant colors and energetic compositions, McNeil’s work evolved from the post cubist abstract expressionism of his Hofmann School days, through the figurative expressionism of his mid-career during the 1960’s and 1970’s, to emerge as full-blown neo-expressionism in the 1980’s and 1990’s.
Today, his work is in many collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
