nouveau rialisme

Discipline: Art

(1960)

A style named after the nouveaux rialistes ('new realists'), a group founded by French art critic PIERRE RESTANY.

JEAN TINGUELY (1925- ), YVES KLEIN (1928-1962) and ANNAN (1928- ) were adherents, rejecting traditional realism and conventional forms of paintings for the use of real materials, new lighting techniques and the recycling of artefacts.
