Abstraction shook Western art to its core. In the early part of the 20th century, it refuted the reign of clear forms and instead, confronted audiences with vivid visual poems devoid of conventional representational imagery, and characterized by allegories of emotion and sensation.

This introduction spans the international breadth, conceptual depth and seismic impact of abstract art with a thorough survey not only of big names such as Picasso, Klee, Kline, Rothko and Pollock, but also lesser-known figures who made equally significant contributions, including Antoni Tàpies, K. O. Götz, Ad Reinhardt and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
