INDEX NEXT UP LAST ATG Abstract Expressionism Abstract Expressionism

VISION IN RED BY MEININGER Exploding after World War II in New York, Abstract Expressionism was based on the freedom of individual expression. It is called abstract because it emphasised shape, colour and line and there was no recognisable subject matter. It was called expressive because it stressed emotions and feelings over design and formalism. Paintings became movements of undisciplined emotions, wildly exciting action painting slashing brush strokes and fuzzy edges. This style lasted about fifteen years. [MH] {GB}
