Historical Context of United States

The United States has been key in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, particularly in the post war era, when the cultural importance of New York assumed primacy over Paris, previously thought of as the most important art hub globally. Leading art movements developed and fostered in extensive 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 iterations of these many types. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has cultivated a prevailing 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.

Further Biographical Context for Michael Loew

Michael Loew was born in 1907 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1920s growing up. The notable innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many pioneering and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a time of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and significant shifts in politics took place internationally. The philosophy of Marxism was widespread among artist communities and groups. Established in 1919, the Bauhaus became an indispensable place for the development of ideas concerning the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
