Abstract Expressionists (book review)

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.

**This book was read for school; it is not for one of the book challenges.

Did you have a favorite artist or favorite work from the book? I'd love to google him/her/it and learn something new. I don't know that much about abstract expressionism, and it's always fun to learn new things.

I don't know a single thing about art or expressionism, so this sounds very educational to me. You're reading some great books for school, in addition to your challenge list.

Great job, Annie!
