Guillaume Stassen 1923-1955. Dutch, his creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1950s. Abstract Expressionism dominated in the 1950s as a primary method of painting, and explored ideas concerning the sublime and spirituality. Artists endeavoured to focus on painting’s formal properties, and Action Painting took inspiration from the political freedoms of the United States, in opposition to the strictures of the Soviet bloc. During the Post War period, New York City became the global focus for Modernism.
