Description

This exhibition features original works by Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell hung alongside Marie Theres-Berger, Mary Page Evans, Cheryl Levin, Melissa Meyer, and Bill Scott. The female Abstract Expressionist painters, featured in the 9th Street Exhibition of 1951 in New York City, were living and creating during one of the most turbulent social and political periods of modern times. Their paintings hang in museums throughout the world and have inspired many artists including the five hanging alongside them in this exhibition – some of whom had the opportunity to personally know them.
