Harold Rosenberg – portrait by Elaine de Kooning, 1956

 

“At a certain moment the canvas began to appear to one American painter after another as an arena in which to act — rather than as a space in which to reproduce, re-design, analyze, or express an object, actual or imagined. What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event.”

— Harold Rosenberg, art critic, art historian, educator, writer
