All three of these are notable American artists (of quite different styles obviously). Avery, a native of New York state, was a member of the Art Students League of New York. It is telling how many wonderful artists have roots in this school, especially from Avery's era.
And Avery's work is both figurative and abstract. He is one of the early abstract painters in the USA. When we think of "abstract" we often think of works that are not representing reality at all but that is, of course, not always the case.
There are several distinct periods in the artist's work. A good place to find out more is at the MoMa website.
