Course Description

America was flexing its cultural muscles in the post-WWII-years, responding to the triumphs as well as the tragedies of that global conflict. This was the moment when New York displaced Paris as the art center of the western world. Artists such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Franz Kline, Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Gilliam and many more produced big, juicy, painterly works of abstract art, inventive in form and filled with emotion. Ms. Angevine will focus our attention on some of the juiciest of these innovative works and on the artists who created them. Here’s a feast for both eye and mind worth attention.
