Through the paintings of these 18 artists, guided by the charismatic Pollock and referred to as "The Irascibles," after a famous protest they staged against the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, this is a complete view of an essential artistic style that reinterpreted the canvas as a space for individual freedom of thought and action. It was both the style of the New York School and a unique phenomenon, which characterized post-war America and that with overwhelming force, influenced Modern Art across the world.
