American Figurative Expressionism

American Figurative Expressionism

According to Marilyn Stokstad, the art historian:“Expressionism (is) the manipulation of formal or representational elements to convey intense feelings.”

New York Figurative Expressionism of the 1950s represented a trend where “diverse New York artists countered the prevailing abstract mode to work with the figure.”

The art of the Boston Expressionist movement of the 1940s has much in common with the European Expressionism that preceded it: the search for identity, perceptions of reality, and the role of the artist are favorite themes for both. (BU Today)
