The European artists who sought refuge in New York during the Second World War helped stoke up a simmering US art scene. A resurgence in US painting was in the making. A resurgence that would be abstract and manifest in two key movements: Action painting, consisting of gestural painting that emphasised the physical act of painting, and Color Field painting, characterised by large, flat areas of vibrant colour conducive to meditation.

After World War II, American painting was revived by a number of young artists. Influenced by surrealism, they eschewed reality and began a free style of painting that developed into two basic trends: « Action painting » and « Colorfield painting ».

Willem DE KOONING, Mark ROTHKO, Arshile GORKY, Franz KLINE, Robert MOTHERWELL, the core artists in the abstract expressionism movement, also known as the « New York School », will feature at the « Post-War and Contemporary Art » auction at Christie’s on 11 May 2005.
