Historical Context of United States

The United States has been a major country in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, especially in the post war period, when the cultural prominence of New York asserted its influence over Paris, previously considered as the most important art centre worldwide. Leading art movements developed and fostered in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in varied forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variations, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus a multitude of post-modern iterations of these many types. In the modern and contemporary era, the United States has cultivated a prevailing influence over the visual culture of the World, due to the hegemony of its economic and political systems. 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.
