Modern art movements; minimalism

Minimalism emerged at a time when abstract expressionism dominated the art scene, and in the emerging tradition of modern art, a small group of artists developed styles that reacted to it.

The key expressionist artists

Expressionist art represented a huge step forward in the development of Modern Art ideas. Impressionism had first considered incorporating the subjectivity of the artist to the painting; allowing them to hint at mood and movement to better convey their impression on viewing the scene, but these were small steps into experimentation.

The key cubist artists

Emerging around the same time as Expressionism, cubism was amongst the first truly great leaps away from realism; more than just a differing approach to colour, or style of stroke, cubist artists attempted to re-imagine how the world could be depicted to capture an entirely different kind of reality.
