Styles & Periods
Post-Painterly Abstraction

In the 1960s the influential curator Clement Greenberg mounted a show titled “Post-Painterly Abstraction” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This was the first formalization of the term, which came to mean painting that veered away from the dense compositions and gestural brushstrokes of the Abstract Expressionists, and towards compositions of clarity and openness. Post-Painterly Abstraction is the most inclusive term for this new direction of painting that came to include Color-Field painting, Hard-Edge painting, and others. Generally the painters of these movements distilled the active, expressive strokes of Abstract Expressionism into broad planes of color that were just as emotionally charged. This reinvention of abstract painting breathed new life into the modern painting tradition by eliminating fantasy, object and figuration from compositions. Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Ellsworth Kelly, Mark Rothko, Frank Stella and Jules Olitski, while having disparate styles, are all considered part of Post-Painterly Abstraction.

I love this glue; I make wigs for a living and this dries clear and has a very strong hold.

I have had wonderful success with R&F encaustics. They melt and move just as I ask for wonderful pictures. I am working on a water picture now.
- JoAnna P. in San Diego,CA
So far I really like this, much better than Das clay. It has no unpleasant odor and is very smooth, takes detail well. Has a distinct leather hard phase where you can work that way, really neat. Hasn't been long enough to really test finished strength though as that takes two weeks (it's dry though in a day or two).
