Introduction to Minimal Art

Minimal Art is a school of abstract painting and sculpture where any kind of personal expression is kept to a minimum, in order to give the work a completely literal presence. The resulting work is characterized by extreme simplicity of form and a deliberate lack of expressive content..

The central principle is that not the artist’s expression, but the medium and materials of the work are its reality. In other words: a work of art should not refer to anything other than itself. As minimalist painter Frank Stella once said: “What you see is what you see”.

Minimal Art emerged as a trend in the late 1950s and flourished particularly in the 1960s and 1970s. It is also referred to as ABC art, literal art, literalism, reductivism, and rejective art.

Pearl

Undoubtedly, the pearl is one of the oldest and most valuable jewels of the world. Grandmothers of all of have a pearl necklace and earrings. The fact that this precious stone is still as popular as it was in the old days is the most important factor that proves its value. The pearl was discovered centuries ago on the beach when looking for food by people. Since then people have used them as ornaments. In some cultures they defined the social status, but in some cultures they represented the purity of the dress. Nowadays, some stones can be made in the appearance of pearls, but in the older times, divers have been searching for oysters. However, unfortunately these pearls which were found couldn’t be always useful. Nowadays, finding natural pearl is difficult. Because of the hardship, it has  increased in price. For example, Elizabeth Taylor’s 16th-century La Peregrina pearl was sold for 118 million American dollars. At the same time, many luxury brands have included pearls in their collection. Chanel’s pearl earrings and necklaces can be good example for it.
