The History of Abstract Art

Unlike other genres of paintings, Abstract art does not hold a history of being in practice since ages keeping aside calligraphy. This kind of art is rather a new form that has come into practice painting in the 20th century. The famous artist Fauves started the movement of art, where he developed a raw language of color devoid of any figure as such. Later at around 1910, Wassily Kandinsky made the first completely new form of art, devoid of any figure. This kind of art was new and became popular as Abstract art.

The movement started with their cumulative belief of the fact that art is the representation of anything and everything by means of exploring colors, forms, and textures without the narrowing down to any particular substance.

However, there are some other causes for the development of this genre of art. The artists of the 19th century were becoming more bound day by day to the society’s inferential class and could barely explore their creative freedom. This led to the desire of this particular form of art. Also Romanticism, Impressionism, and Expressionism laid a big impact on the development of this form of art.

After the advent of this form, there have been many famous artists and many schools of abstract art have developed over time based on the style of art of these famous artists. Cubism, Fauvism Suprematism, Art Informel, Neo-Plasticism, and De Stijl are some of them to name.

But in spite of the difference of style of painting the basic concept remains the same- abstract art involves forms and figures that have no resemblance to the visible world around.

Today, abstract art shares a big portion of paintings. Exhibit art too promotes all abstract art artists and hopes that this art grows even more with time.
