Louis, Lichtenstein and Pollock at K20

A view of the most beautiful room in the K20 location of Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, Germany.

From left to right, you see large works by Morris Louis, Roy Lichtenstein and Jackson Pollock. Three American artists, contemporaries and each varying in technique from traditional painting. Louis as an adept of Color Field painting, Lichtenstein with his ironic Pop Art commentary on the idea of intuitive painting and the cult of the Abstract Expressionist “genius” and finally Pollock with a beautiful example of his “dripping” method, in which he applied the paint in rhythmic motions across the canvas, which was lying flat on the floor.

Museums in The Netherlands aren’t closed, but since I try to limit traveling to a minimum I will be posting some photos I hadn’t got round to posting yet, all from 2020.
