In 1946 the art critic Robert Coates, writing in The New Yorker, first used the term ‘Abstract Expressionism’. The two words combine the emotional intensity of the German Expressionists with the anti-figurative aesthetic of the European Abstract schools. Although they were being painted by then little-known artists working in low-rent studio space, works of Abstract Expressionist art now dominate the walls of major museums.
