Abstract Art

This type of art deals with abstracting an image or having one that may be purely unidentifiable. The purpose of this type of art is to convey a feeling or sensation, rather than simply depicting an image or scene. Rather than a specific image, the focus may be shapes or colors or even lines. Abstract art was developed in the 19 th and 20th century, as a response a renewed trend to classicism and to Impressionism. Abstract art is sometimes also called nonobjective or nonrepresentational art. Famous abstract artists include Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock.
