Documenting a substantial exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, this catalogue illuminates new directions in international art that emerged during the early postwar years through a well-illustrated presentation of 180 predominantly abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures produced chiefly in the late 1940s by Giacometti, Bacon, Noguchi, Dubuffet, Tapies, Wols, Arp, Burri, Calder, Fontana, Gorky, Matta, Jorn, Rothko and more than 75 other important artists. Nineteen diverse essays include general discussions of the cultural climate and nascent artistic trends of the time, examinations of such topics as the influence of Parisian art dealers and the critical theories of Clement Greenberg on artistic developments during the period, and assessments of the early postwar work of such artists as Picasso, Matisse, Miro and Pollock.
