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.”

Nicolas Carone (June 4, 1917 – July 15, 2010) belonged to the early generation of New York School Abstract Expressionist artists whose artistic innovation by the 1950s had been recognized across the Atlantic, including Paris. New York School Abstract Expressionism, represented by Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline, Conrad Marca-Relli and others became a leading art movement of the postwar era.

Perle Fine (1908-1988)

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. When I paint something I am very much aware of the future. If I feel something will not stand up 40 years from now, I am not interested in doing that kind of thing.”

American Abstract and Figurative Expressionism
Style is Timely Art is Timeless

An Illustrated Survey with Artists’ Statements, Artworks and Biographies 

This survey is a follow up to the earlier volumes:
New York School Abstract Expressionists: Artists Choice by Artists;
and
American Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s An Illustrated Survey.
Fifty eight American painters and sculptors of the post-World War II era, are represented, each by one abstract and one figurative work. The book intends to show that the most engaged mainstream creative work in New York and across the USA was not restricted to non-representational or representational expressionism but rather to the creative power of the individual expressionist artist. The artists are represented in alphabetical order. The usual convention of critical analysis is replaced by statements written by the artists themselves. The statements may serve to enlighten the readers as to the artists relation to their creative process.
