Lecture 6: The New York School comes of age with the mature work of Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning. We also discuss the 'second generation' artists such as Joan Mitchell and Morriss Lewis. A strong focus on expressive brushwork, personal emotion and the underlying tenets of existentialist thought is on full display. Clement Greenberg's thoughts on the inherent flatness of the picture plane also exert a strong influence. The work should also be seen in the context of the Cold War and 'soft power'.
