Further Biographical Context for Doina Ciato Hordovan

Doina Ciato Hordovan was born in 1934 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1950s growing up. Abstract Expressionism, a form of painting that explored ideas of spirituality and the sublime, dominated the 1950s. A number of artists focused on the formal properties of painting, and action painting was influenced by the political freedom of the United States, in opposition to the strict strictures of the Soviet bloc. Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb were predominant artists of this time. The male dominated environment has been subsequently revisited to recognise the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
