The artist Betty Parsons is seen through the veil of an abstract drawing. Known as "the Den Mother of Abstract Expressionism," Parsons was the first to extensively exhibit the work of Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, and others in the gallery she opened on 57th Street in New York in 1946.
Pousette-Dart was one of the original group of Abstract Expressionists and an experimental photographer. He continued to show at Betty Parsons’ gallery long after the other painters had been seduced away by more aggressive gallery owners.
