Historical Context of United States
The United States has been a prominent country in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, particularly in the post war period, when the cultural prominence of New York assumed primacy over Paris, formerly considered as the most significant art centre worldwide. Leading art movements developed and cultivated in significant ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in various forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variations, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus various post-modern echoes of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has exercised a strong influence upon the visual culture of the World, due to the dominion of its economic and political systems. Key examples of critically acclaimed 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.
