American abstract expressionism

American abstract expressionism was an American post–World War II art movement. It was the first specifically American movement to achieve international influence and put New York City at the center of the western art world, a role formerly filled by Paris. Blog provides images, statements by the artists and videos.

James Brooks ( 1906 − 1992 )

Considered a first generation abstract expressionist painter, Brooks was amongst the first abstract expressionists to use staining as an important technique. According to Carter Ratcliff: ”His concern has always been to create painterly accidents of the kind that allow buried personal meanings to take on visibility.”

Perle Fine (1908–1988) was among the most prominent female artists associated with American Abstract Expressionism. She stated: ”I never thought of myself as a student or teacher, but as a painter.
