American Abstract and Figurative Expressionism: Style is Timely Art is Timeless. The book intends to show that the most engaged mainstream creative work in New York and across the USA was not restricted to non-representational or representational expressionism but rather to the creative power of the individual expressionist artist.

John F. Kennedy 1963, by Elaine de Kooning, wife of abstract expressionist Wilem de Kooning, coined the term 'Abstract Impressionism'. She was known as a New York Figurative Expressionist, as you can see here, but the term she coined has a nicer ring to it, which is why I'm using it here. She was also an editorial associate for Art News magazine, a prominent Fine Arts periodical still going today.
