Pollock/Warhol: Two Sides of the Same Coin
ARHA 158
Spring 2010 not offered

This course will study the emergence of Jackson Pollock's abstract painting from the American realist traditions in which he was trained and the return to a radically altered realism with the work of Andy Warhol. In so doing, we will discuss style, the meanings of abstraction, and the social context that both produced these two artists and was transformed by them.
