Abstract Art



A term commonly used to describe the more extreme styles of art that were in reaction to the traditional European conception of art as the imitation of nature and heightening of its beauty, during the 20th century.

Abstract Art, can be viewed in two distinct, yet contradictory tendencies:

The first is, that abstract art is the reduction of natural appearances to simplify shapes and forms within the composition.

The second notion of abstract art is, creation of art objects in nondescript, non-representational forms.
