No time like the present

‘Modern Masters’ a potent dose of the 20th century art

By Elizabeth Miller
An incredible momentum carried artists through the first half of the 20th century, a century in which the human form in paintings first fragmented and then vanished altogether and artists arrived, the century not even half over, at the splatter paintings of Jackson Pollock, the color field works of Mark Rothko and abstractions by palette knife Clyfford Still, not to mention the abstraction-by-repetition works of Andy Warhol and the exploded pop art of Roy Lichtenstein.
