A walk across 8th Street would take you from the Waldorf Cafeteria, where penniless artists made “tomato soup” from the free hot water and ketchup; past the school where Hans Hofmann taught painting; to The Club, a loft where lectures and heated arguments about art carried on late into the night. Jackson Pollock’s studio was on East 8th Street, Willem de Kooning and Philip Guston’s were on East 10th, and, although Franz Kline moved among various homes and studios in the area, most nights found him at the Cedar Street Tavern on University Place.</p> </div> </div> <div id="midtown-overlay" class="overlay hidden shadow"> <a href="#" class="close"></a> <br class="clear" /> <div class="wrapper"> <h2>MIDTOWN</h2> <p>In the 1940s and 1950s, midtown Manhattan was the place to see Abstract Expressionist art. (Some things haven’t changed!) 11 West 53rd Street was home to MoMA, in its newly opened 1939 International Style building. Across Fifth Avenue on East 54th Street was the Museum for Non-Objective Art (today known as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). A cluster of galleries on 57th Street showed the latest work by these New York artists, as well as that of famous older Europeans, many of whom were living in exile in New York, including Piet Mondrian, Max Ernst, and André Masson. Today, several key public art works in midtown recall the days when New York became the center of the art world.</p> </div> </div> <div id="longisland-overlay" class="overlay hidden shadow"> <a href="#" class="close"></a> <br class="clear" /> <div class="wrapper"> <h2>LONG ISLAND</h2> <p>Starting with Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s move out to East Hampton in 1945, many Abstract Expressionists traded the compact spaces and chaotic energy of Manhattan for the peaceful expanses of Long Island. In The Springs, Pollock created his largest and most powerful paintings, which he made on the floor of a barn, now part of the Pollock-Krasner House museum. Willem de Kooning, also living in The Springs, could be seen for many years taking his daily bicycle rides to the beach. Artist Alfonso Ossorio held parties for New York School artists at his estate The Creeks; and Ad Reinhardt, Pollock, Krasner, and many other artists found their last resting place in the Green River Cemetery.</p> </div> </div> <div id="map-markers"></div>
