Figurative and Non-Figurative Art in CEAD


The graph shows figurative and non-figurative (abstract) art as two opposite poles, strongly differentiating from each other and resonating in the all-society and historical situation of the last half-century. You can see the growing popularity of the abstract expression at the expense of the figurative one and, on the other hand, its returns resulting from new figuration or photo-realism. The graph depicts the percentages of the monitored issue in the overall survey, as well as in individual consecutive decades. It shows the development and continuity of artistic creation and offers the possibility of comparing figurative versus non-figurative art.
