Рис. \(1\). Abstract painting
Everyone has seen paintings that seem strange — not realistic or natural in any way, but just shapes, lines and splashes of colour. Well, it could be a piece of abstract art. Sometimes it is called non-figurative or non-objective art. The word 'abstraction' literally means the distancing of an idea from an object. The composition of abstract art can be independent from easily identifiable objects of the real world. Free use of shapes, texture and colours allows abstract painters to express abstract concepts, but the interpretation of what is seen in the picture is more of less left to the viewer.
Abstract art in modern sense originated in the early \(XX\) century, and Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky is often referred to as the first abstract artist, but some features and ideas had been used long before that. Now abstract art is widely considered as an inevitable part of the modern art.
Abstract art embraces experiment in any way, and that leads to development of key approaches and techniques, for example, Jackson Pollock's famous 'drip' technique.
This movement of art is revolutionary, it calls for breaking and challenging the usual concepts of things.
