"Who were the leading Abstract Expressionist artists? What were the different types of Abstract Expressionist art? 'Abstract Expressionism' answers these questions. It also explains how Abstract Expressionism developed in New York and was the first U.S. art movement to become internationally famous, investigates the ideas and techniques of both ""action painters"" and ""color-field painters,"" and considers how modern artists continue to be influenced by the Abstract Expressionists. 'Art on the Wall' is an exciting and informative series that explores a range of art movements and styles. Each title in the series looks at the history behind the movement and discusses the techniques used by its artists. The text is supported with stunning paintings and other artworks that illustrate each art style. The titles also include biographies of well-known artists and try-it-yourself activities that encourage readers to create their works of art using the techniques of the movement."
