First Wednesday Art Talk – Abstract Expressionism: American Art at Mid-Century
Abstract Expressionism: American Art at Mid-Century
America was flexing its cultural muscles in the postwar years, responding to the triumphs as well as the tragedies of World War 2, and in this moment, NewYork displaces Paris as the art center of the western world. Artists such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Gilliam and many more produced big, juicy, painterly works of abstract art, emotion filled and formally inventive. Lecture will focus on some of the juiciest.
Docent Speaker: Avril Angevine
