According to many art historians, American art as a designation ended at World War II. After the international recognition of Abstract Expressionism, the art world became increasingly globalized and diffuse, with styles and trends practiced in all corners of the world. This notion was largely inspired by the tremendous number of artists who had fled to the United States to escape persecution in Europe. Recent scholarship, however, has focused on the transnational dialogues that occurred and tracing those back to create a richer understanding of the art of the United States. This session will explore the art that succeeded American Modernism and examine its connections to the American artistic tradition. Artists to be examined include Clyfford Still, Robert Rauschenberg, Jaspar Johns, Andy Warhol, and Andrew Wyeth, among others.
