In response to the intensely introspective approach of mid-20th-century Abstract Expressionism, artists of the 1960s and 70s worked in a pluralism of styles that comprised two opposing trends: a neutral investigation of formal elements and a return to representation of the visible world. In their exploration of process and the qualities of line, shape, and color, artists created new abstract worlds, often identified by their cool, hard-edge structures, interest in mathematical constructs, and use of repetition. At the same time, others rejected abstraction altogether, turning to subjects from popular culture and the everyday life of urban and suburban environments, depicted with an objective, deadpan approach. Color Field, Minimalist, Pop, and Photorealist work by Don Eddy, Audrey Flack, Helen Frankenthaler, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Lindner, Claes Oldenburg, Fairfield Porter, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman, and many others will be included.
