Visual art in the period following World War II witnessed enormous transformations. Drawing provides a powerful and vigorous device for reexamining the spirit and achievements of the postwar era - for renewing appreciation of the extraordinary achievements of well-known artists and for discovering others. Despite the radical departures and shifts in the art of these years, drawing, among the most traditional of mediums, played a crucial role in the work of many of the most significant artists, including Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Joseph Beuys, and many others. Drawing from the Modern, 1945 - 1975, the second of three chronological volumes, surveys the drawing of the period through the unparalleled holdings of the drawings collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Includes 166 color illustrations.
