Modern Abstract Art: Expressionists Painting Techniques


Abstract Expressionism art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York

MOMA, the museum of modern art & the house of the best american modern abstract art collection in the world, made a superb exhibition around the modern abstract expressionists movement.

Modern Abstract Paintings of the best artists of that period where shown all together. It was a superb moment not to be ever forgotten. Do you imagine watching a full art collection of abstract paintings of Kline, Newman, Rothko, Pollock and the rest all at the same time and in the same place?

Those abstract artists where real modern art heroes. What they did was absolutelly great and crazy. They did not want to follow any previous art rule, their art was valid, committed and will last forever. Their abstract art works, modern painting techniques and abstract art revolutionary ideas, changed the art panorama from then on. Don´t you agree?

Why did this art movement happened at that time?. I guess there are many reasons apart from the inner artistic reasons of each abstract painter: The historic moment being lived at those days, the need of the USA to have contemporary artists known all around the world (which helped in the promotion), the movement of many european artists to North America due to world war II, the existance of brave modern art gallerists that decided to take the risk and promote this new way of making art… Would you add any other?

As part of this abstract art exhibition, several hiper interesting videos where created in which you can understand both the artistic reasons behind each abstract painter and its painting techniques.

I´m adding some of the videos I´ve discovered. Hope you enjoy them and helps you understand the value of what these abstract painters and committed artists did.

If you are reading this post, I guess it´s because you are an abstract art lover. What would you say to the ones whose opinion when watching this modern art is “my kids could perfectly make this ridiculous art”?

    Fantástica introducción al Arte abstracto Moderno.Quizas hay una relación muy estrecha entre el movimiento artístico y el momento en el que surgió en la sociedad norteamericana. Imagino los formatos de grandes dimensiones como una bocanada de aire fresco donde renovar y experimentar nuevos caminos estéticos.
    un abrazo

      Hola Xavier,

      tal como dices, hay una relación entre este arte abstracto y el momento en que surgió.

      Y además, como bien apuntas, el tamaño en estas pinturas abstractas modernas es una de la claves del impacto final y probablemente del compromiso de los artistas. ¿Hay alguien capaz de imaginarse un Newman, un Rothko o un Pollock en formato pequeño?

      Un saludo y gracias por compartir tus ideas.

    Response to comment, “My kids…”
    Two thoughts: My late father, Harlow Lent, an abstract expressionist artist, said that good art art is 10% talent and 90% hard work..
    On the other hand, he was fascinated by the art work of chidren and influenced by what is natural, not forced, original, primitive.
    I like what I am reading in this blog.

      Hi Nancy, I don´t know if your father was right or wrong with the percentage, but I completely agree with his influences (natural, original, primitive…). Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
