Dr. Pollack, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Abstract Expressionism

Open Culture is one of my favorite websites. Much better than this one. 🙂 This article is about how the CIA used abstract expressionism as a weapon in the Cold War and as you may have surmised from reading this blog, I continue to have a interest in the Cold War which is my main area of interest whilst studying in grad school. Blending my interest in the intrigue of the Cold War with images such as the paintings of Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothco definitely makes my reading list!
