Louisiana on Paper
American artist Barnett Newman (1905-1970) was one of the preeminent figures of the art scene in 1950s New York. He worked in radical ways with painting alongside Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and others. Together they broke with the predominant European tradition, and opened up entirely new directions in art with ‘Abstract Expressionism’ and ‘Color Field’ painting. When it comes to other media than painting Barnett Newman also transcended boundaries and looked for new ways of expressing fundamental mental and existential conditions.
