Abstract Modernism

The website 'Abstract Modernism' tells the story of the pioneers of Abstract Art in the first half of the Twentieth Century up to the end of the 1970’s. In the spirit of a quest for the new, Modernism in art sees the light. This Modernism results in one of the most important developments in art since the Renaissance: Abstract Art. Abstract Modernism in Belgium experiences a complex development with many twists and plot developments.
Various abstract movements develop with a new language of imagery, in which form, colour and line are central.
