Galleries 921 and 922 display the Metropolitan collection's many strong examples of Abstract Expressionist painting made in New York in the mid-twentieth century.
On view are major works by Jackson Pollock, including two of his classic "drip" paintings, powerful gestural compositions by Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, and luminous, softly brushed color abstractions by Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko. The sculptor David Smith is represented by an early example of his Tanktotem series, a welded steel and bronze sculpture incorporating industrial materials.
