Abstract art emerged at the beginning of the 20th century. It is characterized by the fact that artists increasingly move away from the representation of real figures, objects and situations in their work and make the works of art abstract.
The abstract art may be interpreted from within itself. Other designations of abstract art are non-objective art and non-objective art. Whereas representational art represents the visually perceiving outside world, abstract art refers to the inner world. Its main aim is to trigger emotions when viewed. However, these emotions do not have to be static, but must be constantly changing. Colour and form are considered the most important building blocks of abstract art. They must complement each other and be in harmony with each other.
