Postwar Abstraction: Variations presents longstanding Museum highlights by Sam Gilliam, Leon Polk Smith, Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Francis, Ellsworth Kelly, and Gene Davis, along with rarely shown works by Richard Pousette-Dart, Ida Kohlmeyer, and Leonardo Nierman. Their work, and the work of many other artists, forms the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s outstanding collection of postwar American art from 1952 to 1996.
