A Pictorial Survey of History's Most Famous Abstract Artists
Don't miss this gorgeous and informative slideshow of the worlds most famous abstract artists. These artists include long deceased as well as still living (and thriving) artists. I hope you love these beautiful paintings as much as I do. May they inspire you to make your own creative works and to see beauty in the world.
Abstract art stands for a whole range of art, but it is generally considered to be works of art that are largely developed from pure imagination, free from concrete references to external reality. That is not to say that they are not inspired by reality, only that they seek to explore our world, our imagination, and our spiritual selves, through non-objective images. They are their own thing, standing as pure invention. In addition, they may inspire feelings or associations to our world or be seen simply as visual phenomenon, defying all attempts of explanation. My advice, just look without trying to make them into something recognizable. See them as beautiful inventions dancing before your eyes.
