According to Marilyn Stokstad, the art historian:
“Expressionism (is) the manipulation of formal or representational elements to convey intense feelings.”


New York Figurative Expressionism of the 1950s represented a trend where “diverse New York artists countered the prevailing abstract mode to work with the figure.”
