Abstract art is often referred to as nonrepresentational or nonobjective art. While these terms are often used loosely to denote either one or the other, however, they are more indicative of what people believed the art of abstraction depicts.
In 1913, the writer Guillaume Apollinaire defined an abstract painting as "the art of creating new designs from elements that are not taken from the visual world and were created completely through the artist…it is an art of pure expression"
Beautiful abstract art prints are a popular means of collecting abstract expressions. This art form historically comes from three significant periods: the Romanticist The Impressionist, The Romanticist, and Expressionist periods. Abstract prints are usually described as being a deviation from reality due to the way they are depicted.
The most significant contribution of the three periods is considered in the way that an abstract print is to be appreciated by the viewers. It should create an emotional and psychological connection to the image of the artwork.
Abstract prints are typically described as a deviation from the visual representation of reality. The deviation from the conventional view may be minor or even partial. It could also be completed. In the case of geometric abstraction, the design is made up of the use of geometric shapes.
Artists and critics working with the basic parts or pure forms of abstraction have often argued that geometric abstraction is the top of a non-objective art form in that it is often a work with two-dimensional representations, instead of representations of naturalistic phenomena.
Another type of art is figurative that is akin to realist art, and is often just a small amount of abstraction. Abstract art is believed to be free of any trace whatsoever to anything identifiable. Thus abstract art prints are inherently ambiguous yet powerful representations of reality in a new way.
