Program Description


American mid-Twentieth Century women painters created art alongside their male partners and contemporaries but were rarely given the recognition they deserved. They have finally been recognized. Known as the ‘Ninth Street Women’: Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler and Grace Hartigan were painting near each other in downtown NYC and each helped formulate the first American art movement, Abstract Expressionism. This visual lecture takes a closer look at these artists along with the art of Hedda Sterne, Louise Nevelson, Jane Freilicher, Dorothy Dehner and Mercedes Matter
