Willem de Kooning Villa Borghese, 1960 Oil on canvas. Willem De Kooning, Action Painting, Franz Kline, Richard Diebenkorn, Claude Monet, Musée Guggenheim Bilbao, Land Art, Jackson Pollock, Rotterdam

Villa Borghese

Although often cited as the originator of Action Painting, an abstract, purely formal and intuitive means of expression, Willem de Kooning most often worked from observable reality, primarily from figures and the landscape. From 1950 to 1955, De Kooning completed his famous Women series, integrating the human form with the aggressive paint application, bold colors,…

Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa

By 1947 Clyfford Still had begun working in the format that he would intensify and refine throughout the rest of his career—a large-scale color field crudely applied with palette knives. Still liberated color from illusionary design by allowing large, uninterrupted tonal areas to interlock on a flat plane. He dispensed with typically "beautiful" colors in …

Eduardo Chillida studied architecture in Madrid from 1943 to 1947, before deciding to turn to painting and ultimately—after moving to Paris in 1948—to sculpture. His early architectural training is apparent in the underlying structure, attention to materials, and careful planning of spatial relationships that characterize his sculptures. Indeed, Chillida conceived of sculpture in relation to …

Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa

In his brief, seven-year artistic career—cut short by his premature death in 1962—Yves Klein created a heterogeneous and critically complex body of work that anticipated much of the art of the succeeding decades, from Conceptual art to performance art. Although Klein began by creating monochrome canvases in the mid-1950s, he abandoned the specificity of the …

Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa

In the mid-1950s, while working as a cryptographer in the US Army, Cy Twombly developed his signature style of graffiti-like scratches, scribbles, and frenetic lines that simultaneously referenced and subverted the then-dominant painterly mode of Abstract Expressionism. Following Twombly's permanent move to Rome in 1957, the gestural freedom of Abstract Expressionism was counterbalanced by and …

Unlike fellow Abstract Expressionists such as Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, Motherwell spent his …

Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa

One of the central figures of the New York School, Mark Rothko is best known for his mature idiom, first seen in his paintings of 1949—large-scale compositions comprising stacked, hovering rectangular fields of luminous color. Rothko emphatically rejected the reading of his work in merely formal, aesthetic terms, insisting that he was "not interested in …

In the years after World War II, both Europe and the United States saw the rise of predominantly abstract painting concerned with materials and the expressive, gestural marking of the canvas.
