  Abstract Art Encyclopedia Article, Definition, History, Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
Abstract art is now generally understood to mean art that does not depict objects in the natural world, but instead uses shapes and colours in a non-representational or subjective way.
In the very early 20th century, the term was more often used to describe art, such as Cubist and Futurist art, that does represent the natural world, but does so by capturing something of its immutable intrinsic qualities rather than by imitating its external appearance.
However, the idea that the arrangement of shapes and colours is not simply to be understood as design, but as fine art dates from the nineteenth century when photography began to make the illustrative function of visual art obsolete.

 abstract expressionism on Encyclopedia.com
Jackson Pollock 's turbulent yet elegant abstract paintings, which were created by spattering paint on huge canvases placed on the floor, brought abstract expressionism before a hostile public.
His intensely complicated abstract paintings of the 1940s were followed by images of Woman, grotesque versions of buxom womanhood, which were virtually unparalleled in the sustained savagery of their execution.
Painters such as Philip Guston and Franz Kline turned to the abstract late in the 1940s and soon developed strikingly original styles—the former, lyrical and evocative, the latter, forceful and boldly dramatic.

 Abstract art paintings by unknown and famous artists
Abstract paintings that resemble abstract wallpaper in the eyes of those that don't appreciate action painting, as well as paintings that consist of red, yellow and blue rectangles by Piet Mondrian still give rise to controversy in abstract art.
Perhaps it's true that pre-WW II European abstract artists tried to replace reality with spiritualism (often secular), or intellectualism, that didn't accept "art for art's sake", but felt that art should be spiritually, rationally or socially motivated.
Looking at the post-WW II period, in which abstract art in America was gaining momentum, one may get the impression that American abstract art has been decorative, rather than intellectual, with the emphasis in the paintings of abstract expressionism being on the creative process itself.

 ASHSSS: How to Write an Abstract
The abstract is the reader's first encounter with your paper, and is the chief means by which scientists decide which research reports to read in their entirety.
The abstract should provide a brief summary of the findings of the paper, and should be a stand-alone document that can be understood without reading the paper.
The abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research (introduction), how the problem was studied (methods), the principal findings (results), and what the findings mean (discussion and conclusion).

Although an abstract appears as the first section of a paper, it should be written last.
The key elements of an abstract are in boldface, and its style conforms to the suggestions above.

Any E abstracts which are not matched with the printed versions are deleted at this point (presumably because the author did not attend the conference or withdrew the paper).

 Abstract Expressionism
By the 1951 Museum of Modern Art exhibition 'Abstract Painting and Sculpture in America', the term was used to refer to all types of non-geometric abstraction.
Not all the artists associated with the term produced either purely abstract, or purely Expressionist work: Harold Rosenburg preferred the phrase Action Painting, whilst Greenberg used the less specific 'American Type Painting', and because of the concentration of artists in New York, they are also known as the New York School.

 ArtLex on Abstract Expressionism
Some Abstract Expressionist artists were concerned with adopting a peaceful and mystical approach to a purely abstract image.
Not all work was abstract, nor was all work expressive, but it was generally believed that the spontaneity of the artists' approach to their work would draw from and release the creativity of their unconscious minds.
Abstract Expressionism originated in the 1940s, and became popular in the 1950s.

 WebMuseum: Pollock, Jackson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
By the mid 1940s he was painting in a completely abstract manner, and the `drip and splash' style for which he is best known emerged with some abruptness in 1947.
This manner of Action painting had in common with Surrealist theories of automatism that it was supposed by artists and critics alike to result in a direct expression or revelation of the unconscious moods of the artist.
In 1944 Pollock married Lee Krasner (1911-84), who was an Abstract Expressionist painter of some distinction, although it was only after her husband's death that she received serious critical recognition.
