Description & Technical information

"According to me, the painting called abstract is not an "ism" as it is the case for a lot of movements born recently, it is not a "style" nor a "period" in the art history but it is simply a new mean of expression, another human language, the one of a more direct manner than the painting from before.", Hans Hartung.
