The New York School
- Wallace Collection |
During the Second World War, many artists from Europe emigrated to the USA, and New York City became the focus of a new and dynamic artistic community. From this grew the New York School, which was to shape the future of the international art scene. This lecture looks at work by the immigrant Mark Rothko and the home-grown Jackson Pollock, their work in the 1950s, and their reaction to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. In contrast to Abstract Expressionist and Pop, the Minimalist art of Sol LeWitt and Donald Judd is also explored.
