As Jackson Pollock said in 1951, “it seems to me that the modern painter cannot express this age…in the old forms of…any other past culture.” He and the other artists who will be discussed each found their own way of expressing their turbulent times. Now known as Abstract Expressionism, their works are considered a milestone in the history of art and one of the reasons the center of the art world moved from Paris to New York.
