What Are All Those New-Yorkers Doing Here?

What two things do Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline all have in common?


(1) They’re all contemporary artists of the so-called “New York School,” and
(2) Their works are on exhibition in Rome, right now!

Rome is home to hundreds of paintings by the great Italian masters; but contemporary artworks are chronically in short supply. That’s why the the new exhibit, “Pollock and the New York School” is getting a lot of attention. For just a few months, it’s possible to see Pollock’s famous Number 27 (shown above), a classic example of abstract expressionism, right here in Rome. You can read more about it here.
