"From the TWA Terminal to Cadillac tail fins to paintings by Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, 1940 to 1960 was a groundbreaking period for the arts in America. World War II ushered in an era of unprecedented destruction and the frightening promise of atomic power, and artists and designers responded with creations that emphasized the human body and living forms - reconfiguring what was now imperiled."
