In the wake of Abstract Expressionism, a number of painters developed strategies that both extended the life of painting while at the same time pointed to its possible demise. This class will look at a number of those artists including: Jasper Johns and his paintings of flags and targets; Robert Rauschenberg who fused Duchamp's readymades with notions of abstraction; and Frank Stella who created paintings with programmatic arrangements of lines that radiated outward to determine the overall shape of the canvas.
