Abstract Expressionism art or the New York School is a style of art developed during economic strife and mass war and was meant to invoke feelings through primitive inspiration. An example of this is Rothko’s Four Darks in Red, which was intended to invoke sadness. This school of art received international attention, and thus backed the government. Unfortunately, this style of painting was very hard to replicate and became increasingly imitative or intellectual. Also, the U.S. economy started to feel unprecedented growth and success. Because of these factors Pop Art was developed. Much of the of the success the U.S. sustained was due to mass consumption and the artist wanted to encapsulate it and do so in a more inviting manner. An example of this Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. Works Cited Spivey, D. V. (n.d.). Abstract Expressionism.
