Abstract Imagists is a term derived from a 1961 exhibition in the Guggenheim Museum, New York called American Abstract Expressionists and Imagists - it refers to those who have largely non-gestural impersonal works of Abstract expressionists. A signature of the style is large areas of paint - as opposed to a more vigorous engagement by the artist.

Abstract Imagists typically refer to three chief artists: Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still. The term often fails in that many artists create both personal and impersonal works.
