American artist Robert Rauschenberg helped to revolutionize art in the 20th century through his assemblages incorporating found objects and pop culture. For the Hoarfrost series, Rauschenberg used solvent to transfer images from newspapers and magazines to unstretched fabric. Hoarfrost is a kind of lacy film made up of minute, needle-like ice crystals. Rauschenberg evoked the transience of the hoarfrost by printing newspaper and magazine pages on overlapping layers of delicate fabrics. Other pieces in this series are in the collections of The Guggenheim, MoMA, SF MOMA, the National Gallery of Art and Tate.

Stanton Macdonald-Wright was a co-founder of the Synchromism movement, which combined abstraction and intense color. He was influenced by ideas that the qualities of color were connected to the qualities of music. He stopped painting this way in the 1920s, but his work experienced a revitalization in the 1950s, following a retrospective of his work at LACMA. Inspired by the renewed interest, Wright began producing works with increased passion; these works were considered Neo-Synchromism. La Gaîté is a phenomenal example of this period in Wright’s career, showcasing the brighter colors and larger canvases he favored during his personal renaissance.

Karl Benjamin was a fixture of the American West Coast School. His work was featured in the "Four Abstract Classicists" exhibition in 1959-60 at the San Francisco Museum of Art (now the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) and the Los Angeles County Museum at Exposition Park (now the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) alongside Lorser Feitelson, John McLaughlin, and Frederick Hammersley. That exhibition was viewed as Los Angeles' answer to Abstract Expressionism as the West Coast artists' hard edge paintings offered an alternative style to the New York School's energetic brushwork and action painting.
