Post-Impressionism is the term to describe the development of French art since the impressionists. Post-Impressionists extended Impressionism by using vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes and real-life subject matter, but they were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, to distort form for expressive effect, and to use unnatural or arbitrary color.

Cubism is a proponent of abstract painting developed in the 1950s. In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.

Color Field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s, and is closely related to Abstract Expressionism. Color Field painting is characterized primarily by large fields of flat, solid color spread across or stained into the canvas; creating areas of unbroken surface and a flat picture plane with less or no emphasis on gesture, brushstrokes and action.
