The Modern Woman and Abstract Expressionism

Author: Aliza Rachel Edelman
ISBN: 0542953013
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Abstract expressionism

This dissertation investigates the dominant ways that three women artists---Ethel Schwabacher, Elaine de Kooning, and Grace Hartigan---struggled to define their social and artistic identity in relation to (and sometimes in contradistinction from) Abstract Expressionism and the contemporary Modern Woman ideals of the 1950s. The postwar Modern Woman embodied various roles by assuming new professional and financial responsibilities, identifying with broader sexual behaviors, and either managing or completely rejecting marriage and motherhood. Chapter One presents the subject of the Modern Woman and the tensions of "feminine ascendancy" through women's identification with multiple roles during and after World War II, and through the appearance of women's adoption of masculine behavior. I argue that the contemporary fears of feminine ascendancy and masculine attributions parallel the criticism and challenges for women artists in the patriarchal arena of Abstract Expressionism.

Movements in Modern Art

Author: Debra Bricker Balken
Publisher: Tate
ISBN: UOM:39015062569747
Release Date: 2005-08-02
Genre: Art

In this incisive study, the curator and writer Debra Bricker Balken examines the work of the leading artists associated with Abstract Expressionism, including Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. At the same time she examines the myths surrounding the movement, the variation in the motivation and practice of artists grouped by art historians under the same heading, and the role played by critics in the movement's reception, both at the time and up to the present day. Of equal value to the general reader and the art historical scholar alike, Balken's text is a valuable addition to the literature on one of the most influential of all twentieth-century art movements.
