Abstract Expressionism.Abstract Expressionism emerged in New York City and was the foremost modernist direction of the 1940s and 1950s, producing the most daring, adventurous, and forceful art.

In fact, style as such almost ceased to exist with the Abstract Expressionists, and they drew their inspiration from all directions. The artists who came to be called "Abstract Expressionists" shared a similarity of outlook rather than of style-- an outlook characterized by a spirit of revolt and a belief in freedom of expression.The products of this genre are characteristically free and loosely structured, stylistically. They tend to focus on the sensual and psychological subjects but essentially avoid any clear representational imitation of reality. The works are usually abstracts and represent forms not found in the natural world. They emphasize freedom of emotional expression, technique and execution or displayed a single unified, undifferentiated field, network, or other image in unstructured space.Some of the sculptors that applied Abstract Expressionism to their work are Herbert Ferber and David Hare. One of the David Hare's studies "Rooster" (bronze with brown patina, April-May 1948) is a good example of an abstract representation of reality.Another example of Abstract Expressionism is a sculpture created by Herbert Ferber "Homage to Piranesi V" (copper, 1965/1966). This sculpture illustrates freedom of emotional expression and depicts a form not found in the natural world.Abstract Expressionism and Social Realism are two different artistic movements that have distinct manners of expression. Their different techniques and styles became well-known during the mid-twentieth century and had a great impact on U.S. and European art.
