Wassily Kandinsky


Founded on December 13, 1944. He was not just a painter, but a mystic, theosophist, and art theorist. He believed religious, and transcendent content is a part of the painting. The material can be expressed by the psychophysical effect of rhythms and pure color accords.

Kazimir Malevich

Born on February 23, 1879, and died on May 15, 1935. Malevich was a Ukranian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose pioneering work and writing had a profound influence on the creation of art that is abstract, or non-objective . He invented the concept of Suprematism and sought to develop a form of expression that proceeded as far as possible from the world of natural forms. It moved too in order to get into the supremacy of pure feeling and spirituality. Malevich is regarded as a pioneer of Ukrainian avant-garde.

Piet Mondrian

Mondrian applied angles. Perpendicular and parallel lines made the image. The palette comprised primary colours (red, yellow and blue), as well as non-colours, like white, black and grey. The surface was even and flat, so the ultimate balance, embodied in the regular grate composition can not be disturbed by anything.

Vincent van Gogh

The next on the list is a French artist who's an illustration of Post-Impressionism, Vincent van Gogh. Although he was not appreciated during his life van Gogh is now among the most popular of the Post-Impressionist painters. He is now famed for the beautiful energy of his works that are characterised by expressive and emotive use of playful use and color of paint that is impastoed. Distort and his life's traumas have tended to dominate perceptions of his art.

Theo van Doesburg

He formulated the theoretical bases of Neoplasticism from the articles, published in"De Stijl" magazine.

Paul Klee

Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a Swiss painter and graphic artist, who was able to unite the ideas of lyrical and geometric abstraction. Paul Klee taught together with Kandinsky, working on his theory, based on which the morphogenesis in art and nature is rooted in the same rules- the rules of stability.

Robert Delaunay

The concept explained the peculiarities of our colour perception together with the influence of the colors.

Frantisek Kupka

He moved to Paris where he received training that was artistic. abstract art examples Getting interested in theosophy, he also was well-acquainted with the variety of scientific concepts of colour and light. They motivated Frantisek Kupka to shift from Neo-Impressionism and symbolism into compositions that were nonfigurative.

Arshile Gorky

During the Armenian Genocide, Arshile Gorky fled Lake Van in 1915 and escaped to Russian-controlled territory.

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso, a famous Spanish artist in the 20th Century, started his career painting symbolic pieces. About 1910, Cubism, that's the drawing of angles and planes that vaguely looked like the people he drew was developed by him, but seemed more like geometry.

Franz Kline

Franz Kline made his abstract canvases. They were noticeable for big brushstrokes' amplified and large scale contrast. Franz Kline restricted himself with optical instruments' minimal to make the viewer's experience more powerful.

Mark Rothko

Another prominent representative of this Post-war American abstract art was Mark Rothko (1903-1970). Born Markuss Rotkovičs; similar to Gorky, he was the son of the immigrants in the Russian Empire.

Barnett Newman


Among the most crucial masters, who defined the development of Colour field painting in the united states, we should mention, is Barnett Newman (1905-1970). Similar to Gorky or Rothko, Barnett Newman's way to victory was complex, as the master had to confront misunderstanding and the public's unacceptance of his artistic philosophy. He had his first solo exhibition and it received harsh criticism.

Jackson Pollock

If Kline, Rothko, Newman attempted to demonstrate the self-standing character of painting as an object, another American master Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) moved the focus from the result into the process. Pollock introduced the means of rendering a bit: he set it on the ground and took canvas.

Nicolas de Stael

It was Europeans' turn to respond to the art trends. Tachism or Art Informel was the European version of Abstract Expressionism. Several outstanding painters represent it, but probably it's Nicolas de Stael (1914-1955), who's best-known to the broad public. He was the son of immigrants in France.

Man Ray was one of the Surrealist artists. Surrealism was a movement that included writing that developed in the 1920s and visual arts. The artist career is special above all for the success he had attained in Europe and the USA.

Gheorghe Virtosu

Gheorghe Virtosu is one of the famous art representatives. He is the master who does not deny reality in his abstract painting. The artist paints under the impulse of revelation-ideas born as sparks impossible to control, which light an entire series of subsequent actions. He admits that changes can occur during the process that is artistic regarding the dimensions and colours used. However sustains the spark, as a moment of inspiration, is the one determining how the work will eventually look.
