Summary
The European artistic collective known as Cobra was born in the wake of World War II's devastating events, its name an acronymfor the native cities of its founders: Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. The influential group of painters and sculptors had a tremendous impact on the development of European abstract expressionism, and contemporary art in general. Cobra was arguably the last avant-garde movement of the 20th century. Moving chronologically, this book explores Cobra's formation, its complex expansion over a decade, and illuminates how the movement helped shape contemporary art today. Essays probe the ideological hallmarks: its rejection of rational constraints; a focus on play and youthfulness; and its embrace of immediacy, particularly in the form of action paintings. Comprehensive biographies of the artists illuminate their journeys, helping to expand an understanding of Europe's socio-political and theoretical climate
