Abstract Expressionism - the non-representational use of paint as a means of personal expression emerged in America in the 1940s, inspired primarily by the innovative work of Arshile Gorky.

This survey discusses and presents the lives and works of some twenty artists of the abstract expressionist school, providing a detailed chronological summary of each's life & work.
