Further Biographical Context for María Luisa Manassero
María Luisa Manassero was born in 1955 and was predominantly inspired by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and growth in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the central tensions of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a key movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the sprawling outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly renowned figures worldwide. New York maintained an prominent position in the international art scene, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. The largely Italian Arte Povera Movement gained global recognition during the 1970s, with artists like Jannis Kounnelis, Mario Merz, and Michelangelo Pistoletto achieving international recognition.
