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 asserted its influence over Paris, formerly thought of as the most significant art centre internationally. Leading art movements developed and cultivated in important ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in diverse forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variants, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus various post-modern repetitions of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has cultivated a prevailing influence over the global visual culture, due to the hegemony of its economic and political structures. 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.
