Abstract Expressionism at The Museum of Modern Art By Ann Temkin
Beginning in the mid-1940s, works by then little-known American artists—including Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, David Smith, Lee Krasner, and Mark Rothko—became a part of the Museum’s collection. The achievements of this generation put New York City on the map as the center of the international art world. Abstract Expressionism at The Museum of Modern Art celebrates the Museum’s unrivaled holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and photographs from this period in the history of art and the institution. Includes 147 illustrations.
