Course Description

Irving Sandler entitled his account of American art of the 1950s "The Triumph of American Painting." In this course, we will look at what may be the most important period in American art (we’ll stretch it from 1945 to 1962), when this country’s art became the leading art internationally. Abstract expressionism and its followers, minimalism and pop art, brought to the art world a raw exuberance, theoretical rigor, and pinpoint focus on the postwar political, economic, and social transformation of the emerging global environment. This course will explore the conditions that led to this elevation of American art, the major figures who shaped it, and the lingering influences from this period that still affect art today. | Lecture (plus questions)
