Description: 
Jimmy Ernst was born Hans-Ulrich Ernst in Cologne, Germany. The son of famed surrealist Max Ernst, he was surrounded by surrealism and was introduced to Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti, and Joan MirĂ³, amongst others. Ernst moved to New York City in 1941 from Nazi-occupied France. As an abstract painter, Ernst became a member of the Irascible 18 (also known simply as the Irascibles). The group was formed in protest to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's anti-abstractionist bias. Famous members of this group included Willem de Kooning, Hedda Sterne, Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, and Mark Rothko. His inspiration and influence comes from his lifelong involvement with the avant-garde, but also from personal experience and his love of jazz music.
