photohistorian:

do you have any idea how abstractionists like arshiel gorky and kandinsky and picasso et al.
factor into this whole equation? while i know the abstract expressionists
were in the 40s and 50s ... they seem (to me at least) to be an offshoot
of these cubists, constructionists and abstractionists from around the time you mention
brett weston's abstract work was beginning ...

thanks!
