While it is considered by many artists to be a pure and simplistic form of expression, abstract art is also often thought of as vague or exceedingly theoretical. This new installment in the Art Essentials  series demystifies the concept and history of abstraction, taking the  reader on a journey that spans the globe and examines the pioneering  artists of the last century who advanced abstraction with their work and changed in the process. Author Stephanie Straine follows the history of abstraction from its multifaceted beginnings in Europe through its appearance and transformation during global constructivist, abstract expressionist, and minimalist movements.
