By mid-century, American artists—influenced primarily by artists who had fled Europe during the 1930-1940s—had firmly established themselves as the leading force in abstract painting and sculpture. The Gallery, continuing its practice of acquiring contemporary art, grew significantly during this period to include the work of the first and second generation of Abstract Expressionists like Al Leslie, former faculty members of the German Bauhaus like Joseph Albers, as well as artists who absorbed and transformed the aesthetic lessons of abstraction and integrated them back into representational imagery.
