The term Abstract Expressionism, though coined by critics and resisted by some of the artists involved, has come to signify the fascinating body of work made by American artists in post-war New York, mainly between 1947 and 1953. Artists including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Lee Krasner and Willem de Kooning created large-scale canvases that revitalised contemporary art in America. Although inspired to some extent by the Surrealists and by European abstract painting, Abstract Expressionism was hailed as the first truly American modern art movement, and was in turn to have enormous influence on the activities of artists in Europe. This accessible survey of the movement also examines its critical reception up until the present day in both the USA and abroad.
