ART: American artists essay

Can you name the top 10 most influential American artists of the 20th century?

Besides, the list comprises artists who, although living in America, originated from other countries. Still, the artists from this list have definitely influenced not only the American art, but contributed to the world’s culture legacy. Here they are (not in the order of importance or influence); in the parentheses are the countries in which they were born:

– Mark Rothko (USSR)

– Piet Mondrian (Netherlands)

– Grandma Moses (United States)

– Grant Wood (United States)

– Roy Lichtenstein (United States)
