Art History - Abstract Expressionist Movement

Collection by THE CAGE


Abstract Expressionism was the first specifically American movement to achieve international influence. The painters of this movement filled their canvases with fields of color and abstract forms characterized by unique gestural expressions. The New York painters of this movement set the stage for America's post-war dominance of the international art world.

Lee Krasner (1908 – 1984) was an influential American abstract expressionist painter in the second half of the 20th century. In 1945, she married artist Jackson Pollock. Krasner would often cut apart her own drawings and paintings to create collages and, at times, revised or discarded an entire series. As a result, her surviving body of work is relatively small. Her catalogue raisonné, published in 1995 by Abrams, lists only 599 known pieces.
