About this product
- DescriptionDijkstra examines the emphasis these socially conscious artists brought to the pursuit of the American ideals of equality dignity and justice for all. Provocatively he suggests that Abstract Expressionism came to be used as part of a backlash, deliberately fostered by conservative political and corporate interests, against the socially conscious Expressionist paintings and the WPA projects supported by the Roosevelt administration.
- Author BiographyBram Djikstra is Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature at the University of California at San Diego. He has published numerous articles and books on American cultural history.
