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 era, when the cultural status of New York assumed primacy over Paris, previously thought of as the most powerful art centre globally. Major art movements developed and cultivated in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in diverse forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variants, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus a multitude of post-modern echoes of these many movements. In the modern and contemporary period, the United States has exercised a strong influence over the worldwide visual culture, due to the authority 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.
