Art Word of the Day: Lyrical Abstraction

November 12, 2012 Art Lingo

Lyrical Abstraction is a vague term used by various writers to describe a type of expressive, but non-violent abstract painting which flourished mainly in France in the 1950′s-60′s (Clarke 2010).

I’m posting an “Art Word of the Day” inspired by a dictionary I bought at the MoMA bookstore that is focused on a broad range of art terms called “The Concise Dictionary of Art Terms “. I know most people might find it boring to sit down and read a dictionary A-Z, so I want to pick a new word from the book, that I find interesting, and have Darcy present it to you! I hope you enjoy it!
