Further Biographical Context for Manuel Muñoz Barberan
Born in 1921, Manuel Muñoz Barberan grew up during the 1950s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. During the Post War period, New York City became the global focus for Modernism. Throughout the Second World War, many artists had travelled to the city after having fled in exile from Europe, which culminated in a merging and amalgamation of abilities and ideas. Whilst in New York, influential Europeans such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann provided inspiration for American artists, and influenced cultural maturation in the United States for many subsequent decades. Important artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. In subsequent revisions, the contributions and efforts of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois have been acknowledged, amongst many other female creatives.
