3 The work of Still, Newman, and Mark Rothko was taken to be most advanced by Greenberg at this time by dint of the “emphatic” flatness of their paintings, derived from the “all-overness” of their surface design. This was brought about by the relative lack of tonal variation across the canvas field and resulted in a comparatively undifferentiated, and expansive, whole. This strict valorization of an art that stayed close to the “essence” of its medium came to be the dominant way of accounting for the value of “apolitical” painting in the postwar years – a-political because its value as art was deemed to be purely aesthetic and autonomous from all other systems of worth.

23 This “mixture” was evident in an Independent Group exhibition held at the Whitechapel Gallery in London in 1956 entitled This is Tomorrow. In many ways, the title echoes the futural programs and manifestoes of the avant-garde at the same time as riffing on the rhetoric of postwar reconstruction evident in national exhibitions such as the Festival of Britain, held in London in 1951. 2 Richard Hamilton, Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? 1957.
