Abstraction

Abstract art was born in the early twentieth century and its main founder is Vassily Kandinsky. The influence of both Fauvism and Cubism were key to its development. The triumph of colour, of non-objectivity and the lack of a codified style all hailed the advent of a free art. Abstraction does not attempt to represent the visible and the outside world, it is a "visual language".

"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes it visible." Paul Klee
