In the 1980s there was a resurgence of interest in painting across Europe and America. In Britain, the decade was dominated by a break from modernist abstraction, growing interest in figuration and the adoption of neo-expressionist approaches, all of which seemed to have the effect of revitalising painting. This exhibition and publication aims to capture the energy and creativity that characterised abstract painting in Britain during this time.
