"World War II and Hitler's persecution of the Jewish people and the condemnation of modern art by the Nazis, led to a wave of immigration of European avant-garde artists to the United States - mainly to New York.
The result was an enormous impact on contemporary American artists. The art movement called Abstract Expressionism was born."

Karly Bornstein's insight:
"Much art of the American colonial period consisted of portraits, as settlers sought to establish their identities in a new world....Whether phrased in the representational idiom of George Bellows and Edward Hopper, or in the language of pure abstraction, these disturbing works seem a far cry from the idyllic aspirations of early nineteenth-century Americans, who—for a brief time—truly believed their country held the promise of paradise."
"It was not until the pioneering work of Vasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, and Mondrian in the early to mid-1910s that painting became truly abstract or non-objective, with the advent of compositions that are almost entirely self-referential. Although they worked independently from one another, these artists were united by a belief that abstract art was capable of evoking a spiritual experience."
This helps me see that my turning point definitely started in the early 1900s and continued on throughout that century. Abstract art seemed to be not just a small event happening, it spread all over and inspired many people.
