Historical Context of United States
The United States has been key in the evolution of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, particularly in the post war era, when the cultural status of New York assumed primacy over Paris, previously considered as the most powerful art centre globally. Major art movements established and cultivated in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in various forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast branches, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus a multitude of post-modern iterations of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has exercised a powerful influence upon the visual culture of the World, due to the hegemony of its economic and political structures. Key examples of world renowned U.S artists of the modern and contemporary period include Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Donald Judd, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Julian Schnabel, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
