Historical Context of United States
The United States has been a major country in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, especially in the post war era, when the cultural status of New York asserted its influence over Paris, formerly considered as the most significant art centre internationally.
Major art movements developed 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 echoes of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary age, the United States has cultivated a strong influence upon the visual culture of the World, due to the hegemony of its economic and political institutions. Key examples of important U.S artists of the modern and contemporary era 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.
