Summary "Ms. Rose discusses the 1913 Armory Show; the 1920s, a period of retrenchment, of provincial Cubism; and the 1930s of the American Scene painters and the WPA projects. She then examines in detail the stylistic development in the 1940s of the Abstract Expressionists-including Gorky, Pollock, and de Kooning-analyzing their revolutionary techniques and "heroic" images. Then continues with the New York School, the second-generation Abstract Expressionists and painting in the early 1960s including pop and op art and post-painterly abstraction. She then explores stain painting, the invasion of plastic arts, the Washington Color School and Photo Realists and later the works of Jasper Johns and Frank Stella."--BOOK COVER
