American Abstraction at Midcentury / From The  Smithsonian American Collection

American Abstraction at Midcentury features artists who transformed American art. They experimented, reversed course, refined, and readjusted to capture the thoughts, feelings, and moods of America during the Cold War through exploration of powerful color, probing the dark side of man’s unconscious, capturing the light of the natural landscape or meaning in family and community.
