Grace Hartigan, a second-generation Abstract Expressionist whose gestural, intensely colored paintings often incorporated images drawn from popular culture, leading some critics to see in them prefigurings of Pop Art, died in Baltimore; she was 86. [1]

About Painters and Poets of the New York School:

"The avant-garde atmosphere in New York at that time was a close and exciting one," Grace Hartigan recalled of the beginnings of the New York School. The close association of artists (Hartigan, Larry Rivers, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Goodnough, Fairfield Porter, and Alfred Leslie) and poets (Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch, John Ashbery, James Schuyler, and Barbara Guest) produced a creative excitement that lasted from the late 1940s into the 1960s.
