Post War American Paintings

Post War American Paintings

Bert Gallery’s Autumn/Winter online exhibit documents the many fine examples of five artists and Post- War American paintings available at the gallery.

On December 7, 1941 every American life changed with the attack on Pearl Harbor and the entry of the United States into World War II.  Most American artists left art school or faculty positions to serve in the war and while many American artists adjusted to the disruption in their career, the war irrevocably transformed the art world.  The post war art profession was convulsing with new ideas and approaches to painting. A variety of New England and Providence artists were transformed by the art currents of European modernists like Cezanne, Surrealists like Dali, Cubists like Braque, Abstract Expressionists like Pollock & De Kooning and Geometric Abstractionists like Albers.
