Hans Hartung (häns här´tŏŏng), 1904–89, French painter, b. Germany. Hartung rejected the early influence of German expressionism and developed an entirely abstract style in which a strong linear element creates a rhythmic unity. In his works black lines are grouped together in bunches on a luminescent background. Characteristic is his Composition (1951; Cavellini Coll., Brescia).
