Abstract Expressionism and the New York School

Description

Action painting, drip painting, luminous fields of color so large that they envelop the viewer while exposing the process of their creation. Abstract Expressionism is not a single style and isn’t even consistently abstract. Rather, it is intensely personal painting often on a very large scale that is more concerned with exposing the act of creative invention than in traditions of representation.
