Historical Context of United States
The United States has been a major country in the evolution of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, particularly in the post war era, when the cultural prominence of New York asserted its influence over Paris, formerly thought of as the most significant art centre globally. Leading art movements developed and cultivated in important 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 sphere, the United States has exercised a prevailing influence over the international visual culture, due to the hegemony of its economic and political structures. Key examples of important 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.
