What is Abstract Expressionism?

In this video from the Clyfford Still Museum (CSM) ground-floor storyviewers, CSM Director Dean Sobel, Senior Consulting Curator David Anfam, art historian Robert Storr, and author Robert Genter discuss the development of this iconic American artistic movement following World War II. While Storr and Genter provide historical context for the movement, Sobel identifies “all over” composition and monumental scale as two of its defining characteristics.
