Description

Getting art into action in the mid-20th century

Containing works by 25 of its leading practitioners, the catalogue examines the most important aspects of gestural abstract painting between 1945 and 1965. It also sheds light on the similarities and differences between the new, performative art forms known as Action Painting in America and as Art Informel in Europe. With essays by established experts and introductions to each of the artists, the catalogue presents a detailed portrait of one of the most important art movements of the second half of the 20th century.

Artists represented include Sam Francis, Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Morris Louis, Jackson Pollock, Pierre Soulages, and Wols.
