Lasting Impression: Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925 at the MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York has been looking back 100 years at the invention of abstract art. The exhibition “Inventing Abstraction“, which I managed to see just before it closed on 15th April, showed the work of a large number of artists from 1910-1925, whodispensed with creating artworks with a recognisable subject matter. At the time this was a radical idea and received with surprise from observers, but today it’s hard to imagine modern art without an element of abstraction.

Here are some of my favourites from the show…

Piet Mondrian,  Augusto Giacometti, Vaslaw Nijinsky, Waclaw Szpakowski, Theo Van Doesburg, Giacomo Balla, Paul Strand
