HOWARD MEHRING
Howard Mehring was a leading figure in the group of artists known as the Washington Color School, though he differed from them in his preference for using geometric forms in his compositions. A native Washingtonian, Mehring was an art major at Wilson Teachers College, where his student teaching was supervised by Leon Berkowitz, one of the founders of the Washington Workshop Center for the Arts.

In the late 1960's Mehring abruptly ceased painting, and for the rest of his life he made only drawings. In 1977, The Phillips Collection exhibited Mehring’s drawings concurrently with a major retrospective of his paintings at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Mehring died three months later.
