Overview

L'abstraction a secoue l'art occidental au plus profond. Au debut du XXe siecle, elle a refute la toute-puissance des formes nettes et sans ambiguite, et decide de confronter le public a des poemes visuels vivants, depouilles de l'imagerie representationnelle conventionnelle et caracterises par des allegories d'emotions et de sensations. Cette aventure esthetique radicale a defini de nouveaux moyens d'expression et de narration artistiques, caracterises par des juxtapositions troublantes de couleurs, de lumiere et de lignes. Les artistes ont alors abandonne pinceaux et chevalets pour jouer avec d'autres materiaux, d'autres methodes et une nouvelle gestuelle: peintures commerciales et rouleaux, toiles brutes et non tendues, posees au sol, application a la main. Cette introduction essentielle decrit la portee internationale, la profondeur conceptuelle et l'impact sismique de l'art abstrait dans une etude rigoureuse qui s'attache aux grands noms comme Picasso, Klee, Kline, Rothko et Pollock, mais aussi a des figures moins celebres dont la contribution a ete tout aussi significative, parmi lesquelles Antoni Tapies, K.O. Goetz, Ad Reinhardt et Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
