Featuring thirty-five outstanding abstract paintings made between 1950 and 1975 from the collection of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, this fascinating book casts a new glance at a renowned period in the history of art, including works by Lynda Benglis, Jasper Johns, Yayoi Kusama, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. A groundbreaking essay by Harry Cooper explores Pollocks preeminent role for these and other artists, analyzes artistic influence, and discusses what it means to be original. Focusing on Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Robert Ryman, Cy Twombly, and Simon Hantaï, and viewing their relationships to Pollock through the lens of Harold Blooms seminal text The Anxiety of Influence, Cooper addresses the material, psychological, and thematic ties between Pollocks work and theirs and expands the circle of artists that we might consider his artistic heirs.
