Qu'est-ce que l'art abstrait?

What is Abstract Art?

Abstract art is a form of artistic expression that does not represent real figures or objects, but rather focuses on creating works based on shapes, colors, and textures. Abstract art can be interpreted and perceived differently by the viewer, thus allowing for a personal experience of the work. Abstract artists often explore themes such as the expression of the unconscious or symbolism through their works. Abstract art can also be seen as a form of personal and subjective expression of the artist, which can be difficult to interpret.

Abstract art is an art movement that developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and has continued to the present day. It is characterized by the use of abstract and non-figurative forms to express the idea or the feeling of the artist. Abstract art is often considered a non-traditional art form, but it is recognized as an artistic genre in its own right.

The history of abstract art dates back to the era of modernity and the art movements that preceded it. Artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich are recognized as precursors of abstract art. As these artists moved away from realism and naturalism, they began to explore more abstract forms.

Abstract art continued to develop and evolve through the 20th century. Artists like Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman have explored abstract forms in their works. Other artists, such as Mark Bradford, Robert Rauschenberg and Yayoi Kusama, influenced the abstract movement by developing their own techniques and styles.

Today, abstract art is as popular as ever and continues to influence the art world.
