Franz Kline.(1910-1962) was an American painter mainly associated with the abstract expressionist movement centered around New York in the 1940s and 1950s.  He was labeled an "action painter" because of his seemingly spontaneous and intense style, focusing less, or not at all, on figures or imagery, but on the actual brush strokes and use of canvas.
