In Search of Abstract Expressionism
By John Linton
21 Jan 2014
"Seemingly apolitical, emotional, and even perhaps nihilist, Abstract Expressionism was a sharp break from the often explicitly political and realistic Photographic Modernism and Social Realism art movements of the 1930s. This largely non-figurative school of art took inspiration from the philosophy of Existentialism, and the process of making art was considered to be more important than the final object."
