Learn about the groundbreaking works by American artists of the mid twentieth-century, who eschewed representational imagery in favor of abstraction. Explore Jackson Pollock's action painting, the color field works of Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko, plus notable examples by Motherwell, de Kooning, and Frankenthaler. We also will read the criticism of Clement Greenberg, who championed the Abstract Expressionists and who had enormous impact on the reception and acceptance of their work. This course will include a visit to the Dallas Museum of Art and its special exhibition Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots.
