Extract

Throughout the 1930s, Arshile Gorky (1904-1948) absorbed the style ofpainters such as Picasso, Braque, and Miro,1 becomingknown as the Picasso of Washington Square. His work was a bridge between modernEuropean art and Abstract Expressionism (a form in which artists expressedthemselves purely through the use of form and color), the first American artisticmovement of worldwide importance. Rosenberg writes,

Gorky did not meet his stride until he embodied, through allusion toand extraction from past works, the history of art up until his time and learnedto spontaneously express his inner reality.
