Postwar Modern Art and theRejection of Modernism
The development of a new American art movement was held inabeyance until after World War II, when the United States tookthe lead in the formation of a vigorous new art known asabstract expressionismwith the impetus of such artists as ArshileGorky, JacksonPollock, and Willemde Kooning.
Action painting
, as the movement was also known, made itsimpact felt throughout the world in the 1950s. A number of notable developments were led by artists associated with theseand other New York school artists. As the influence of abstractexpressionism waned in the 1960s, artists came to question thevery philosophy underlying modernism. A vast variety of newmovements and styles came to dominate the art world that, inthe aggregate, can now be seen to mark the beginnings of artisticpostmodernismand the post-midcentury shift frommodern tocontemporary art.
