Abstract painting

Abstract art established itself in the twentieth century before rapidly becoming a major era in the history of art. Many artists have tried to define this elusive artform. For the painters of this important movement, it is a question of constantly trying to free themselves from all limits, and all existing references or codes. Through a technique that cannot be qualified, the practice of abstract painting uses an informal language that tries to go beyond the palpable world as much as possible. Kandinsky is considered to be the instigator of the movement.

A true pioneer, he painted Composition Number 8 in 1910, which is still considered today as the first work of abstract art. However, this assertion may be qualified with certain works described as abstract preceding Kandinsky, but which were less well known. However, Kandinsky’s contribution remains a cornerstone of abstract painting: a work of lines and the play of colour that positions itself as the anti-figurative par excellence.

For a long time, other great movements of the time were included in abstract art. This is the case of cubism, with the work of Pablo Picasso for example, which plays with a recurrence of geometric and abstract forms. Or the Futurist movement. These movements seek to represent the world without copying it. And yet, it seems that they don’t belong to abstract painting, which does not envisage any evocation of reality as we can observe it. Indeed, the advent of photography has freed painting from realistic representation.

Selling prices of abstract paintings

Abstract paintings carry within them the intention of their artist and a unique vision and absolute intimacy that continues to move the art market. Prices in art galleries and auctions can reach very high prices, as was the case for the painting named “No 17A” by Jackson Pollock, which sold for 177 million euros.
