Add to this the fact that abstract art (central to modernism as it never could be to the long historical field called American art) seemed more or less to preclude any talk of what is depicted. In the last few decades, many modernists have wanted to see a link between radicality of form and radicality of politics. In this mode of scholarship, the new possibilities of thought opened by avant-garde art are far more important than any local or historically specific objects or topics that might be represented, or any ideas that mass culture might formulate about them.

We mean rather to say that Americanists generally take more interest in historical expressions—even when those expressions are unconscious, contradictory, and c­ ollective— than they do in the forms by which those expressions are made. For many modernists, by contrast, the topic is form, both aesthetic and social, and the ways in which it enables the taking apart of some expressions and the potential building of others. 1). Case Study: Jackson Pollock While modernist accounts of Pollock may be more widely circulated, the claims that both modernist and Americanist art historians make on his work are compelling, especially in relation to the historical break at 1945 problematized in the opening passages of this essay.

Beginning with the establishment of the field in the 1960s, so-called foreign languages have been woefully underused in researching and writing histories of American art, and consequently, these histories, generally speaking, are governed by both ignorance and avoidance of primary and secondary sources in languages other than English. Drawing on scholarship addressing the multilingualism of the history of American literature, especially the writings of literary historians Werner Sollors and Marc Shell, LaFountain argues that despite growing attention to manifold categories of difference (particularly as a result of the multiculturalism of the 1980s and 1990s), language is a crucial type of difference with which American art history scholarship has not contended.
