Post-war abstract art art movement • artists • artworks for sale

A new art
The period of reconstruction after the Second World War was also a time of renewal in the visual arts. Pre-war styles were no longer adequate for many young artists. They wanted to break with existing traditions and rules. Moreover, the art of the interwar period had become "contaminated" because the occupier had set classical figuration as the norm. A new society, a new art was the motto. In the Netherlands, Amsterdam became an important art center after 1945, where experiment and innovation were given space. CoBrA (1948-1951) was one of the "freedom movements".
