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 prominence of New York assumed primacy over Paris, previously considered as the most significant art hub in the world. Major art movements established and cultivated in important ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in varied 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 period, the United States has exercised a strong influence upon the worldwide visual culture, due to the hegemony of its economic and political institutions. Key examples of critically acclaimed 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.
