GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Key Modern Art Styles

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM & POP ART
This set explores two mid-20th century art styles — one entirely American, the other American and British.



Abstract Expressionist paintings appeared during and after World War 2, when painters in New York became leaders of the international art scene.  These masters were the last of the modernists to tackle new ways of addressing a flat canvas. Working on a grand scale — some had painted murals for FDR’s New Deal — their images concentrated on colour and form.
Pop Art grew in the 1950s, in differing forms in London and New York.  It was gimmicky and fun, recognised as a sign of the times, like pop music, film stars or the moon landing.  These artists combined mediums, materials and techniques — painting, collage, assemblage, ready-mades, photography, screenprinting, vinyl sculpture, etc. Never had new art been so accessible to all.
