Washington Art Consortium: Works on Paper 1945-1975

June 18 through August 11, 1989

The exhibition begins with the artists of the mid 1940s and early 1950s who used both the French tradition of analytical drawing by the Cubists and the subconscious projection of the Surrealists to form their own American expressionism ranging from the abstract figurative work of William de Kooning to the abstract spatial dynamics of Jackson Pollock.
