Role of women artists, Panhandle in growth of American art movement explored in new book by WT professors


CANYON — A freshly revealed e-book by two West Texas A&M University professors aims to recenter the narrative all-around a pivotal American artwork movement.

“Three Women of all ages Artists: Expanding Abstract Expressionism in the American West,” published June 23, argues that not only did women of all ages participate in a substantial purpose in the improvement of abstract expressionism, but so did collectors in the Texas Panhandle.

In the several years since the movement very first emerged in New York Metropolis in the 1940s, it has mostly been outlined in fairly confined terms, in accordance to Dr. Amy Von Lintel, a WT professor of artwork history and director of gender scientific tests, and Dr. Bonnie Roos, professor of English and section head for English, Philosophy and Modern day Languages.

The artists most related with the movement contain Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, but ladies artists also were being very influential, Von Lintel and Roos said.
