Definition of Abstract Art

Definition of Abstract Art from the Tate Modern: A cluster of theoretical ideas lies behind abstract art. The idea of art for art's sake – that art should be purely about the creation of beautiful effects. The idea that art can or should be like music – that just as music is patterns of sound, art's effects should be created by pure patterns of form, colour and line. The idea, derived from the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, that the highest form of beauty lies not in the forms of the real world but in geometry. The idea that abstract art, to the extent that it does not represent the material world, can be seen to represent the spiritual. In general abstract art is seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality.

  1. Such a calming noise - I really like it. I reckon it'd do alright as a substitute of some green outside the window, if such a need arises.

    Hey! Great stuff! We really like your taste and the ideas that you share!!!

  3. I’m absolutely agree with this definition. I like the idea of abstract art and from my point of view it’s right to strive for art, which is full of balance and purity, and a shining example of a high form of beauty is exactly an abstract art. Beautiful painting, it fits perfectly to the interior!
