Work Description: 
This color slide depicts an installation view of the exhibition “American Art at Mid-Century 1” at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Milton Resnick's "Mound" (1961, cropped) extends from the left edge of the frame, followed by Hans Hofmann's "Lava" (1960), Clyfford Still's PH-115 (1951), and Philip Guston's "The Mirror" (1957). Proceeding clockwise, Sam Francis’s “Red in Red” (1955, cropped) and Mark Rothko’s Rothko's "Untitled" (1954, cropped) line the wall to the right. On view October 28, 1973 through January 6, 1974, the exhibition featured twenty-six paintings and sculptures by twenty-three American artists. The presentation of these works demonstrated the diverse artistic styles of post-World War II New York. Frederick and Marcia Weisman loaned PH-115 from their collection of Still's artwork to appear in the exhibition.
