Abstract Expressionism for Your Letters

This morning the Postal Service unveils a new panel of stamps celebrating highlights of Abstract Expressionism. This post-war explosion redrew the boundaries of Western art and established the U.S., or at least the players within the New York School, as a force to be reckoned with on the world

The panel includes images from Hans Hofmann, Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky, Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, and Joan Mitchell.

The stamps should hit your local Post Office next week.
