Collect the Abstract Expressionists FEATURING JASPER JOHNS, MELISSA MEYER, AD HELD, AND MORE

Widely recognized as the first genuine American avant-garde, the Abstract Expressionists were heavily influenced by both a spirit of rugged individualism and the anxiety of a post-WWII world. With cultural epicenters like Paris and London in ruins after the war, New York City moved into the limelight as the new center of the art world, fortified by the establishment of The Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Non-Objective Painting (later known as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.) Through these institutions and others, a new artistic community was fostered, influenced by Surrealism and German Expressionism, as well as a new era of critics, writers, and theorists who championed various up-and-coming painters.
