Abstract can also be used to describe art that has no clear connection at all to the real world, known as "pure" abstraction. Some of these wonderful abstract paintings can now be reproduced as hand painted oil on canvas works of art decorating the walls of contemporary homes and offices.
Wassily Kandinsky (Vasily Kandinsky) is usually regarded as the pioneer of Abstract art oil paintings. However, The Tate Gallery has stated that Swedish artist, Hilma Af Klint, should lay claim to the title. Her painting The Ten Largest, No 2 was painted in 1907.
