Historical Context of United States
The United States has been key in the development of modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century, especially in the post war period, when the cultural importance of New York asserted its influence over Paris, previously considered as the most important art centre internationally. Leading art movements established and cultivated in significant ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in diverse forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast branches, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus various post-modern echoes of these many types. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has cultivated a prevailing influence over the international visual culture, due to the hegemony of its economic and political structures. Key examples of world renowned 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.
