ART movement

Post-war After the Second World War, the European and American art scene set about giving a new impetus to its history. From 1945, many painters offered an artistic vision free from traditional conventions, exploiting original techniques and developing a new form of creation. A symbol of post-war trauma, this movement attempted to leave the past behind, giving rise to numerous artistic movements. Post-war art remains marked by the rise of abstract expressionism, initiated by a group of American artists. While two trends were to emerge, namely “action painting” and “color field painting”, this artistic form was defined by the spontaneity of gestures the importance of the material. Abstract expressionism became established in the United States until the emergence of pop art at the start of the 1960s. The post-war period also saw the emergence of automatism, a movement promoting an approach based entirely on intuition. Raw art is another post-war art movement. Initiated by painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet, this movement brings together the works of non-professionals: mediums, the self-taught, mental patients, etc. Like expressionism, raw art is based on a spontaneous approach not driven by any intellectual ambition.
