Questions About Abstract Modernist Art
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Wassily Kandinsky is the father of abstract art.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Abstract, in art, refers to art that rejects visual reality. Instead, abstract arts utilizes shapes, colors, forms and other gestural marks to convey a certain feeling and reality.

    No, abstract art, by definition, is not representational. Although the shapes in an abstract composition may be based on real world objects, these objects are not recognizable in the finished work.

  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Abstract art grew out of the desire by artists in the early 20th century, like Wassily Kandinsky, to create “pure art,” grounded not in visual reality but in the artist’s imagination.

  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Abstract art was influenced by Postimpressionism.

  • La ChrysomeleFebruary 23, 2021
    A definition of abstract art is art through which the artist doesn't attempt a visual depiction of the world. The artist may have other intentions : conveying a pure emotion, or achieving what (s)he perceives as visual perfection, etc. There are many kinds of abstract art : lyrical abstraction, geometrical abstraction, action painting… There is also an infinite spectrum between hyperrealism and pure abstraction, since one can argue that any brush stroke is by itself an abstraction of the reality — let alone flat color patches.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Abstract art is meant to achieve an effect as opposed to representing an object, person, or a scene. Three characteristics of abstract art include: being non-representational art; valuation of shapes, colors, lines, and textures; and subjective art. On 1stDibs, find a variety of original abstract artwork from top artists.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Yes, Cubism is a form of abstract art.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 1, 2024
    The six elements of abstract art are color, form, line, shape, texture and value. Color refers to the various hues featured in a composition, while form refers to the subjects or elements of a piece. Lines and shapes are the components that make up the artwork. Textures include both physical differences in the surface of a work and effects that create the illusion of textural variations. Value, the final element, describes how light or dark the colors are. On 1stDibs, shop a wide range of abstract art.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2024
    There is no single painter who experimented with abstract art and Cubism. A number of artists worked in Cubism, a style of abstract art in which reality was fragmented into flat, geometric forms. Historians generally credit Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso as being the fathers of Cubism. Other Cubist painters include Fernand Léger, Alexander Archipenko, Marcel Duchamp, Juan Gris and Jean Metzinger. Shop a collection of Cubist art on 1stDibs.
