American abstract artist and member of the New York School. Jenkins's innovative practice was characterized by his choice to avoid the paintbrush altogether, instead allowing pigment to pool, bloom, or roll across the surface of his canvases, guiding the paint with a knife to create fluid fields of color characterized by vivid, jewel-toned colors. His work is in collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., as well as the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Fogg Museum of Art at Harvard University, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, among many others.
