What is Abstract Art?

Abstract art (sometimes called nonobjective art) is a painting or sculpture that does not depict a person, place, or thing in the natural world. With abstract art, the subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale, and, in some cases, the process itself, as in action painting

Abstract artists strive to be non-objective and non-representational, allowing the viewer to interpret each artwork's meaning in their own way.

It is not an exaggerated or distorted view of the world such as we see in the Cubist paintings of Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso, for they present a type of conceptual realism. Instead, form and color become the focus and the subject of the piece.

While some people may argue that abstract art does not require the technical skills of representational art, others would beg to differ. It has, indeed, become one of the major debates in modern art.

Art historians typically identify the early 20th century as an important historical moment in the history of abstract art. During this time, artists worked to create what they defined as "pure art" — creative works that were not grounded in visual perceptions, but in the imagination of the artist.
Influential works from this time period include "Picture with a Circle" (1911) by the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky and Francis Picabia's "Caoutchouc" (1909).
It is worth noting, however, that the roots of abstract art can be traced back much further. Earlier artistic movements such as the 19th century's impressionism and expressionism were experimenting with the idea that painting can capture emotion and subjectivity.

It need not simply focus on seemingly objective visual perceptions.

Going back even further, many ancient rock paintings, textile patterns, and pottery designs captured a symbolic reality rather than attempting to present objects as we see them.
