Abstract Expressionism New York

Since I've been posting about art, I figured this would be a good time to tell you about a very exciting exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art this fall. Abstract Expressionism New York will trace the development of the artist movement from it's beginning in the 1940's through to the 1960's when it reached its zenith. The exhibition will be compiled from the museum's holding and will include over 300 works by such illustrious artists as Jackson Pollack, his wife Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning (above), Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky, Robert Motherwell, and Joan Mitchell. I know Abstract Expressionism doesn't appeal to everyone but it is one of my absolute favorite art movements. Since most of the works aren't representational, each person who views them can see something different or just appreciate them for their expansive use of color. Abstract Expressionism New York will be on view October 3, 2010 through April 25, 2011. See you there!
