Born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1923, Paul Jenkins settled in New York in 1948, studying on the GI Bill for four years with Yasuo Kuniyoshi at the Art Students League. His first solo exhibitions were at Studio Paul Facchetti in Paris in 1954; in 1955 at the Zoe Dusanne Gallery, Seattle; in 1956 at the Martha Jackson Gallery, in New York and, in 1960 at Arthur Tooth & Sons, London. Invited by Jiro Yoshihara in 1958, Jenkins worked with the Gutai in Osaka in 1964, exchanging works with several artists. Those paintings formed the basis of the exhibition “Under Each Other’s Spell”: Gutai and New York, curated by Ming Tiampo and first shown at the Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center in East Hampton in 2009. The title of this exhibition comes from a quote by Jenkins to exhibition curator and art historian Ming Tiampo, describing his time working with Gutai artists in Osaka.
