About Peter Schuyff's work

Peter Schuyff is a key figure in Abstraction. Abstract art first started to emerge in the early 20th century, as a new and rather radical form of art. Artists were looking for a way of expressing the societal changes occurring at the time, and release their creative energy, thus distancing themselves from figurative art. With abstraction, the artists move away from any literal representation of reality, and the visual qualities often put in focus in such non-representative works are colours, shapes and textures. Some of the most influential contemporary art movements born from Abstraction include Cubism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, with key figures such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Jackson Pollock. With abstract art, a sense of self-renewing freedom is materialising through the artworks, in a new tradition of creativity.

Historical Context of Netherlands

In the post-Impressionist era, the dutch Vincent Van Gogh is considered among one of the most leading innovators, and is of course seen as one of the most remarkable painters of all time, irrespective of the era. Willem de Kooning is also Dutch, although he emigrated to the United States in his youth and his work is most closely related to the New York City Abstract Expressionist era of the late 1940s and 1950s.
