> DESCRIPTION
Organized by the Georgia Museum of Art and the Thomas McCormick Gallery in Chicago, the exhibition examines the idea that Abstract Expressionist artists of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, normally associated with large-scale canvases, executed and conveyed the same sensibility in paintings less than 18” in size. The variety of styles, techniques and materials reinforce the understanding that not only was there not one specific look or style in this loosely named movement of 20th-century art, but also these artists were able to paint brilliantly in a smaller format and still convey the power and impact of their larger canvases.
