Art crime at its best

Abstract Style

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, colour and line to create a composition having partial or complete independence from visual references in the world. Western art up to the middle of the 19th century was underpinned by the logic of perspective and attempts to reproduce an illusion of reality. As the arts of cultures became more accessible, artists perceived alternative ways of describing visual experience. Abstraction indicates different degrees of departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. Artwork which takes liberties, such as altering colour and form in conspicuous ways, is partially abstract. Total abstraction bears no trace of any reference to anything recognizable. In geometric abstraction, for instance, one is unlikely to find references to any natural phenomena.

Abstract Painters

Henri Matisse, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro, Piet Mondrian.
