Abstraction shook the foundations of Western art. At the beginning of the 20th century, he challenged the domain of clear and indisputable forms and confronted the public with vivid visual poems stripped of conventional representative images and characterized by allegories of emotions and sensations.
This radical artistic adventure laid the foundations for a new artistic medium, as well as novel narratives. The expression was characterized by the startling juxtapositions of colour, light and line. The artists left behind the conventions of the brush and the easel, and played with new materials and artistic methods: commercial paints and broad brushes, unstretched and unprimed canvas transferred to the floor and application of paint by hand.
This monograph traces the international significance, conceptual depth, and seismic impact of abstract art with a detailed study not only of world-famous artists such as Picasso , Klee , Kline , Rothko , and Pollock , but also of perhaps lesser-known but equally relevant figures. , like Antoni Tàpies , KO Götz , Ad Reinhardt and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
