Young Arshile Gorky

"Rejecting his father's expectation that he would be a factory worker, [the abstract expressionist artist Arshile Gorky] enrolled in Boston's New School of Design in 1922 and dove into the study of art, partly in schools but mainly in museums. He was savagely proud. When a teacher disparaged his work, he destroyed the canvas that he was working on and walked out of the class for good."
