artist(s)David Aronson, Ben Culwel, Arshile Gorky, David Hare, Loren MacIver, Robert Motherwell, Isamu Noguchi, I. Rice Pereira, Alton Pickens, C.S. Price, Theodore Roszak, Honoré Desmond Sharrer, Saul Steinberg, Mark Tobey

The "Fourteen Americans" show at MOMA, while often thought to proclaim the arrival of abstract expressionism did not do so unambiguously since it included those like Sharrer and George Tooker who are not modernists based on the litmus test of abstraction.
