RICHARD DIEBENKORN....(1922-1993)...Critics persist in referring to Diebenkorn's early work as "abstract expressionism." It does indeed respond to the art of older figures of the New York School, such as Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) and Arshile Gorky (1904-1948). But Diebenkorn's New Mexico-period work pretty consistently lacks the sense of emotional eruption that might justify calling it expressionistic.
