WERNER DREWES | OSKAR FISCHINGER | SIDNEY GORDIN: The Invention of American Abstract Art documents three artists whose art reached maturity in the late 1930s and early 1940s and whose careers spanned the midcentury to the late twentieth century. Drewes and Fischinger were German born and imported Bauhaus-inflected ideas to the U.S. in the early to mid 1930s. Gordin was born in Ukraine but grew up in Brooklyn and became an important part of the New York avant-garde in the late 1940s. All three promoted their visions in museum and gallery shows. Drewes and Gordin were also known academics. With this catalog, scholars, collectors, and artists can reach better understanding of how various approaches to abstract art developed in the Unitedd States.
