This ongoing exhibition draws upon the Met's own collection of Modern Art, together with special loans, to explore large-scale abstraction in the twentieth century. Gathered into the exhibit are some of the biggest names in American art from the last century, including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning. What is Epic about the exhibit is not just the prestige of the collection but the sheer size of many of the paintings and sculptures on view. A fascinating tour of a critical shift in Modern Art.
