Project Description

This book traces the history of abstract art from 1950 to 1975.
Looking closely at more than 30 of the most important works of art of that period, Harry Cooper, curator and director of modern art at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, focuses on Jackson Pollock and his indisputable influence on the art and artists of the time.
Works by Mark Rothko, Lynda Benglis, Jasper Johns, Yayoi Kusama and other artists of fundamental importance are put side by side in a way that casts new light on the thematic and psychological elements that unite them. The book, unique in its approach, will be useful to anyone who wishes to understand the art of the time.
