Geometric abstraction

(movement, 1914-present)

Geometric abstraction is a form of abstract art based on the use of geometric forms sometimes, though not always, placed in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions.

In Geometric Abstraction, many different attitudes are joined together, from the Dutch neoplasticism of Piet Modrian to the utilitarian concept of Art expounded by the Bauhaus movement in Germany. In Russia, the figure of Malévitch stands out. In 1915 he published the Suprematist Manifest. In Holland, the De Stijl group achieved extraordinarily harmonious results accentuating the absence of nuances with reference to color and form. In France, Léger and Picabia tended towards cubist forms treated with intense coloring.
