   schema:description "Taking a fresh look at the art world of the 1960s, Caroline Jones explores the pervasive imagery of the American artist at work and the implications of those images for understanding their art. The radical break of artists with Abstract Expressionism at the end of the 1950s demonstrates the traditional modernist view of the solitary, suffering artist did not seduce those who came of age in the burgeoning American economy of the 1960s. Jones argues that far from the countercultural stance associated with the decade, the artists examined here - including Stella, Warhol, and Smithson - identified their work with postwar industry and corporate culture and revealed the anxieties of this identification through the slippages and darker implications of their work."@en ;
