He believed religious, and transcendent content is a vital part of the painting. The content can be expressed from the psychophysical effect of colour accords and rhythms. His"impressions","improvisations" and"compositions", as Kandinsky used to title his series of functions, were based on the highly stylized allusion of coastal scenery, which seems to evaporate in clouds.

Malevich was a Ukranian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose pioneering work and writing had a deep influence on the creation of non-objective, or art , in the 20th century.

Vincent van Gogh
The next on the list is a French artist who is an illustration of Post-Impressionism, Vincent van Gogh. Although he wasn't appreciated during his life, van Gogh is now one of the most popular of the Post-Impressionist painters.

He had his first solo exhibition and it received harsh criticism.
If Kline, Rothko, Newman attempted to demonstrate the self-standing character of painting as an object, another American master Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) moved the focus from the result to the process. Pollock introduced the way of rendering a piece: canvas was taken by him from the wall and put it on the ground.
