Second Half of the 20th Century

The second half of the 20th century, broadly speaking since the end of World War II, cannot be defined stylistically.  While certain schools of art did develop, from Minimalism to Pop Art, and assorted other esthetics such as Abstract Expressionism and Op Art, the diversity of artistic creation seems endless.  Armstrong Fine Art has historically mostly bought and sold late 19th century and early 20th century prints; mostly emanating from the French sphere of artistic influence.  But we've changed our tune!  Take a look at the many prints we have or have had that were created since 1950.  Chances are you will find something that speaks to you.
