Further Biographical Context for Cécile Reims

Abstract Expressionism dominated in the 1950s as a primary method of painting, and explored ideas about the sublime and spirituality.

Significant artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb.
