John Little

John Little was born in 1907 in Alabama and as a teenager attended the Buffalo Fine Arts academy from 1924 to 1927. Soon after he moved to New York, where he began operatic vocal training and opened what became a very successful textile business designing fabric and wallpaper. In 1933 he began classes at the Art Students League with George Grosz, painting mainly Cezannesque landscapes. In 1937 he started working with Hans Hofmann in both New York and Provincetown, which pushed him towards abstraction.
