(French: abstraction lyrique)

In pictorial art, a French version of the American concept of action painting, an expressive and spontaneous form, which is exemplified by artists such as Georges Mathieu, Camille Bryen and Pierre Soulages.

In broader terminology, "lyrical abstraction" is also used to describe all of the abstract styles, in contrast with concrete art.
