The Hand of the Artist in Abstract Painting 1950-1990 is Addressed in Princeton

A remarkable gathering of paintings by some of the most important artists of the postwar era will provide a window into a moment of extraordinary creative ferment, when the very nature of abstract painting was being hotly contested. Rothko to Richter: Mark-Making in Abstract Painting from the Collection of Preston H. Haskell spans the years 1950 to 1990, an era whose commitment to artistic experimentation is rivaled only by the first decades of the 20th century, when abstraction was invented.
Organized by the Princeton University Art Museum, Rothko to Richter features 27 paintings by 23 pioneering American, European and Canadian artists, including Josef Albers, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Jean Dubuffet, Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Morris Louis, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko and Frank Stella.
