Ludwig Sander(American 1906-1975) was born in Staten Island, New York. He studied in Paris, Munich, and New York. By the late 1950’s, Sander had settled into his style, creating works composed of geometric abstractions, with planes of color traversed by horizontal and vertical lines. In 1949, Sander co-founded a discussion group for artists in New York called “The Club” with Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline, and Ad Reinhardt among its 16 members. Sander’s work remains in numerous collections around the country.
