Aesthetic movement

The Aesthetic movement occurred during the late nineteenth century. It emphasized the beauty of art, and the sensual qualities of visual art more than practical or moral features. The movement promoted creating beautiful art, simply for its own intrinsic value, throughout Britain.

Tachisme

French abstract painting style that gained popularity between 1940-1950. It is often interpreted as a European equivalent of abstract expressionism. There are however, stylistic differences between the two art types. Tachisme was initially part of Art Informel which in favor of more intuitive expression, left geometric abstraction. Tachisme came as a reaction to artworks of Cubism. However, it is closely related to Informalism.
