From the description:
Abstract Expressionism is a term applied to a movement in American painting that flourished in New York City after World War II, sometimes referred to as the New York School or, more narrowly, as action painting.
The varied work produced by the Abstract Expressionists resists definition as a cohesive style; instead, these artists shared an interest in using abstraction to convey strong emotional or expressive content. Abstract Expressionism is best known for large-scale paintings that break away from traditional processes, often taking the canvas off of the easel and using unconventional materials such as house paint. While Abstract Expressionism is often considered for its advancements in painting, its ideas had deep resonance in many mediums, including drawing and sculpture.
Robert Motherwell (Aberdeen, Washington, Usa 24/1/1915 – Provincetown, Massachusetts, Usa16/7/1991). American painter, one of the founders and principal exponents of Abstract Expressionism, who was among the first American artists to cultivate accidental elements in his work.
