Post painterly abstraction


A term coined by Swiss art historian, Heinrich Wolfflin, it was used by art critic Clement Greenberg to describe a period in American art that succeeded Abstract Expressionism. The term came to be associated with any work that Clement Greenberg appeared to promote. It was the title of an exhibition he organized in 1964. It opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of art in June, traveled to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and ended December 20, 1964 at The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. Among the artists were Walter Bannard, Ralph DuCasse, Paul Feeley and Al Held. Source:
