Abstract Expressionists, by Rachel Barnes, begins by explaining the Abstract Art movement. It talks about where the movement happened and what obstacles it faced.
Following this introduction are twelve chapters about various abstract expressionists. Each chapter included a short biography about the artist and and a few pictures of their works. In some of the chapters, there were little sections about the lives of some of the people the artist worked with.
I thought the book was very educational and well-written. Some of the artists had very interesting lives! Overall, the book was certainly one I would recommend.
