In the late 1920s, three progressive and influential patrons of the arts, Miss Lillie P. Bliss, Mrs. Cornelius J. Sullivan, and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., perceived a need to challenge the conservative policies of traditional museums and to establish an institution devoted exclusively to modern art. When The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1929, its founding Director, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., intended the Museum to be dedicated to helping people understand and enjoy the visual arts of our time, and that it might provide New York with "the greatest museum of modern art in the world."
The Lower East Side hosted a loosely connected art colony on East 10th Street that formed as part of the avant gardist New York School. Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline showed their work in studio lofts and storefronts along East 10th Street near 4th Avenue — thus the label, "Tenth Street Movement."
Charlie Mingus, at the Five Spot, 1950s A 1956 exhibition entitled "Painters and Sculptors on Tenth Street" featured the works of 25 artists who lived on the street. Artists enjoyed the east side atmosphere of heightened diversity, social chaos and disorder. The Five Spot, a bar on Cooper Square, at the western fringe of the Lower East Side, began to attract a "subterranean" crowd in the mid 1950s.
The artists, de Kooning and Larry Rivers, frequented the bar as did the beat writers Jack Kerouac and Frank O’Hara and jazz bassist Charles Mingus and saxophonist Sonny Rollins. Franz Kline, along with several other Abstract Expressionists, all vistited the Colony, a bar on the corner of E. 10th Street and Fourth Avenue.
