Minimalist Paintings for Sale

Minimalism is a movement that began in the 1960s as a reaction against the exacerbated subjectivity of expressionism. Its motto: “less is more". Economy in means is essential in minimalism. Extreme sobriety is the common denominator of minimalist art, often relying on the depiction of geometric forms in primary colors. Minimalist artworks often appear as sophisticated and conceptual, as the idea outweighs the production. Some of the painters of this movement are: Frank Stella, Sol Le Witt, Malevitch or Ad Reinhardt. 

Minimalism is an offshoot of the school of abstraction, focusing on the extreme simplification of form and the idea that art should have its own reality, rather than representing any another thing. It developed in the USA during the post-war period of Western art, largely throughout the 60s and 70s. Minimalist art is often based on the use of basic shapes or lines, or sometimes even just block colour. Generally, the colours used are bright primary colours, but the palettes are usually very limited, sometimes even monochromatic.

Minimalism seeks to make art more accessible, as the viewer need only respond to the painting itself, its form and its medium. This takes away any necessity to be familiar with Art History or to recognise any references in the piece to fully appreciate the art. Pioneer of the movement Frank Stella once said the point of his paintings was that “what you see is what you see". Discover minimalist paintings from the likes of Barbara Todd and Fernando Munoz Zuloaga in Artsper's extensive catalogue.
