    Very interesting! I personally didn’t expect abstract art to have such a long history. It always seemed to me that it was a recent “discovery”. Thank you for this informative post.

      Thank you for your comments. The definition of abstract art, in broad terms, is the visual departure (complete or partial) from the true world. In this context, many artworks (present and ancient) may be classified as abstract art. For example, Cave Paintings go back to some 40,000 years.

      However, the intent to create abstract art takes this definition into a narrower angle. As a movement, abstract art began in Europe in the late 19th century / early 20th century where many avant-garde artists at that time decided to move away from traditional art to more liberated self-expression. The need to create this type of art was necessary to embrace the fundamental changes in Europe at that time.
