From £12.00 at Abstract Expressionism
More About This Offer
This ambitious and long overdue exhibition will bring together some of the finest works associated with the movement from around the world.
London has seen retrospectives of the most famous proponents of Abstract Expressionism over the decades, but this is the first time since 1959 that the movement as a whole will be represented in one landmark show. It is an opportunity for us to re-evaluate an artistic phenomenon, and make the case that far from being unified; Abstract Expressionism was in fact far more complex and ever changing.
In addition to featuring work of the most celebrated artists associated with the movement: Kline, Pollock, Rothko, Newman, Still, de Kooning, Smith, Reinhardt and Gorky, we will also be display work by lesser-known – but no less influential –artists to reveal the extraordinary breadth of a movement that gave New York City an artistic identity for the first time.
The exhibition will be curated by the independent art historian Dr David Anfam, alongside Edith Devaney, Contemporary Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts. Dr Anfam, is the preeminent authority on Abstract Expressionism, the author of the catalogue raisonné of Mark Rothko’s paintings and Senior Curator at the Clyfford Still Museum, Denver.
