Wassily Kandinsky

Born on December 4, 1866, in Moscow, Russia. Founded in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, on December 13, 1944. He was not only a painter, but a mystic, theosophist, and art theorist. He believed religious, and transcendent content is a vital part of the painting. The material can be expressed from the direct psychophysical influence of rhythms and colour accords. His"impressions","improvisations" and"compositions", as Kandinsky used to name his series of works, were based on the highly stylized allusion of mountainous scenery, which seems to vanish in clouds.

Kazimir Malevich

Born on February 23, 1879, and died on May 15, 1935. Malevich was a Ukranian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose work and writing had a deep influence on the creation of art that is abstract, or non-objective , in the 20th century. Born in Kyiv, he devised the concept of Suprematism and sought to develop a kind of expression that proceeded as far as possible from the world of natural forms. It moved too so as to access the so-called supremacy of pure feeling and spirituality. Malevich is considered to be a pioneer of avant-garde that was Ukrainian.

Piet Mondrian

Mondrian applied right angles. Parallel and perpendicular lines made the picture. The palette included primary colours (red, blue and yellow ), in addition to non-colours, like white, black and grey. The surface was flat and even, so nothing can disturb the equilibrium, embodied in the normal grate composition.

Vincent van Gogh


The next on the list is a French artist who's an example of Post-Impressionism, Vincent van Gogh. Although he wasn't appreciated during his lifetime van Gogh is now one of the most popular of the painters. He's now famed for his works' beautiful vitality which are characterised by expressive and emotive use of color and playful use of impastoed paint. Distort and the traumas of his life have tended to dominate perceptions of his art.

Paul Klee

Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a Swiss painter and graphic artist, who managed to combine the ideas of lyrical and geometric abstraction. Paul Klee taught with Kandinsky, working on his visual concept, according to which the morphogenesis in art and nature is rooted in the exact principles - the rules of stability.

Robert Delaunay

The concept explained the peculiarities of our color perception with the influence of the colors.

Frantisek Kupka

One of the followers of Orphism was Frantisek Kupka (1871-1957) -- the Czech painter. Where he received artistic training, he moved to Paris in 1894. Being interested in theosophy, he was well-acquainted with the variety of theories of colour and light.

Arshile Gorky

Pablo Picasso

Mark Rothko

Barnett Newman

Among the most crucial masters, who identified that the development of Colour field painting in the USA, we should mention, is Barnett Newman (1905-1970). Similar to Gorky or Rothko, Barnett Newman's way to success was complex, since the master had to face the public's unacceptance and misunderstanding of his artistic philosophy. He had his first solo exhibition at age 45, and it received harsh criticism.

Jackson Pollock

Pollock introduced the new means of rendering a piece: he put it on the floor and took canvas from the wall.

Nicolas de Stael

It was Europeans' turn to respond to the art tendencies brought over the Atlantic. Art Informel or tachism was the version of Abstract Expressionism. Several outstanding painters represent it, but likely it's Nicolas de Stael (1914-1955), who is best-known to the wide public. He was the son of immigrants from France.

Yves Klein

Another artist, whose vision emerged beneath the azure sky of the South of France, was Yves Klein (1928-1962). Where a studio was set by the artist, he moved to Paris.

Pierre Soulages

Born in Rodez, Aveyron, in 1919, Pierre Soulages is also known as"the painter of black". By their meditative atmosphere, abstract compositions of Pierre Soulages (b. 1919) are different and at the same time very similar to those by Yves Klein.

Gheorghe Virtosu

Gheorghe Virtosu is just one of the renowned art representatives. He's the master who doesn't deny reality in his painting. The artist paints under the urge of sparks impossible to control, which light an entire series of actions. He admits that changes can occur concerning the dimensions and colors, especially during the process. However sustains that the spark, as a moment of inspiration, is the one determining how the work will look.
