The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism


 

 

Minimalism


Art Fortune | Minimalism

 

Popular in America during the late 1950s to early 1970s, the Minimalist movement sought to break down objects in order to display them in their simplest forms. Created as a protest against the painterly forms of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism rejects the needs for social commentary, self expression, and narrative by producing only sharp, geometric lines while using an extremely limited number of colors, values, shapes and textures. The goal of Minimalist artwork is to command the complete attention of the viewer by omitting distractions of composition, theme and other elements of design that can be seen in traditional work.


Frank Stella is said to have been the catalyst of this movement when he exhibited his Black Paintings in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1959. From there, other artists like Donald Judd, Agnes Martin and Robert Morris began to create their own art in a very similar fashion. Minimalist art acted as the stepping stone for other Modern art styles including, most notably, Postmodernism.
