This exhibition examines the explosive, supportive, competitive, and often complex relationship between abstract expressionist painters and art critics of the mid-twentieth century and beyond. Artworks by Hans Hofmann, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, and Sam Francis, among others are featured in the exhibition, culled from the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection.
