DOWNLOAD PRESS RELEASE
This book is an incentive for art lovers and art collectors to visit museums, and to understand the influences that led the masters of Modern Art toward Abstraction. It may also be an inspirational guide for contemporary artists in their search toward new developments in Art. This book includes 255 references to Modern Art artworks and a bibliography. [....]
With her unique and unclassifiable style, she created an emotional language inciting viewers to introspection. Cosmina Ene decided to share her passion for art. In this first book, “Toward Abstraction,” she explains how European and American Modern Art masters evolved from Figurative art to Abstraction. [...]
In the third chapter of her book, she develops the main characteristics of Lyrical Abstraction: - in Europe, with the major pioneers of Lyrical Abstraction (Georges Mathieu, Gerard Ernest Schneider, Pierre Soulages, and Hans Hartung); the Tachism movement (Nicolas de Stael, Joan Mitchell, Vieira da Silva). She dedicates a long analysis about Joan Miro, who brought an original and significant contribution to abstract contemporary art. - in the United States, with Action Painting (Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning.), the Color Field (with Mark Rothko), and Minimalism (Agnes Martin) as well as the other artists Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns. She explains how the Abstract Expressionism movement helped New York to become the leader of Western art and how American artists broke away from the western established and traditional aesthetics in favor of a pure translation of human emotions.
