Overview

Painter, John Lynch, came to San Francisco in 1950 in the early ferment of the West Coast Abstract Expressionist movement. He brought with him a rigorous academic training, the experiences of World War II, the influences of his San Miguel Allende teachers and a desire to challenge the conventions of painting. He and several of his friends, including James Kelly, had a studio in downtown Philadelphia. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and the Barnes Foundaton. He made friends among those now known as the Dilexi artists, became a central figure in the Marin Society of Artists and left an amazing artistic legacy.
