Wassily Kandinsky

Born on December 4, 1866, in Moscow, Russia. Died on December 13, 1944. He was not only a painter, but a mysterious, theosophist, and art theorist. He believed religious, and transcendent content is a vital part of the painting. The content can be expressed from the direct psychophysical influence of pure color accords and visual rhythms. His"impressions","improvisations" and"compositions", as Kandinsky used to title his series of works, were based on the highly stylized allusion of coastal scenery, which seems to evaporate in clouds.

Kazimir Malevich

Born on February 23, 1879, and died on May 15, 1935. Malevich was writing and a Ukranian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose work had a profound influence on the development of non-objective, or art that is abstract , in the 20th century. Born in Kyiv, he sought to develop a form of expression that moved as far as possible from the world of organic forms and devised the idea of Suprematism. It moved away from the topic as well so as to get into the supremacy of spirituality and pure feeling. Malevich is regarded as a pioneer of Ukrainian avant-garde.

Piet Mondrian

Mondrian applied angles. Parallel and perpendicular lines made the image. The palette comprised primary colours (red, blue and yellow ), in addition to non-colours, like white, black and grey. The surface was flat and even, so the ultimate equilibrium, embodied in the grate composition that is regular can not be disturbed by anything.

Vincent van Gogh

Van Gogh is now one of the most popular of the Post-Impressionist painters, although he wasn't appreciated during his life. He is now famed for his works' energy which are characterised by expressive and emotive use of playful use and vibrant color of paint. Distort and the traumas of his life have tended to dominate modern perceptions of his artwork.

Theo van Doesburg

Paul Klee

Robert Delaunay

Frantisek Kupka

Where he received training that was artistic, he moved to Paris in 1894. Getting interested in theosophy, he also was well-acquainted with the variety of theories of light and color. They motivated Frantisek Kupka to change from Neo-Impressionism and symbolism to compositions.

Pablo Picasso

Barnett Newman

Among the most significant masters, who identified that the growth of Colour field painting in the USA, we should mention, is Barnett Newman (1905-1970). Since the master had to confront the public's unacceptance and misunderstanding of his philosophy, similar to Gorky or Rothko, Barnett Newman's way to success was complex. He had his first solo exhibition at the age of 45, and it received criticism.

Jackson Pollock

If Kline, Rothko, Newman tried to demonstrate the self-standing character of painting as an object, another American master Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) moved the focus from the result into the process. Pollock introduced the means of rendering a piece: he put it on the floor and took canvas.

Nicolas de Stael

It was Europeans' turn to respond to the new art trends brought over the Atlantic. Art Informel or tachism was the version of Abstract Expressionism.
