Historical Context of United States

The United States, in particular New York city, remains as a central point that has played a substantial role in developing modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century. The idea of New York as a new cosmopolitan and highly influential art hub came to be in the post war era, and the city succeeded in asserting its dominance over Paris, which used to be regarded as the most powerful global art centre. The predominance of the political and economic structures of the United States in the modern era has provided the country with a powerful influence on the visual culture of the world. Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, are influential art movements that emerged in the US. These very movements also echoed into a myriad of variations, such as alternative forms of Abstract Expressionism, as well as East and West Coast adaptations of Pop Art, among others. Some internationally distinguished U.S artists of the modern age 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.

Further Biographical Context for Vincent Glinsky

Born in 1895, Vincent Glinsky was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups developing a variety of methods of communicating their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are considered as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas first began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines such as architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to grow at an equally high rate. The idea of a shared discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a leading way of thinking about art. These philosophies that we associate today with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of artworks produced during this period.
