What is Tachisme?

What is Tachisme?

French abstract painting style that gained popularity between 1940-1950. It is often interpreted as a European equivalent of abstract expressionism. There are however, stylistic differences between the two art types. Tachisme was initially part of Art Informel which in favor of more intuitive expression, left geometric abstraction. Tachisme came as a reaction to artworks of Cubism. However, it is closely related to Informalism.

Watercolors appear luminous and are transparent because the pigments used are laid down in pure form and few fillers obscure pigment colors. By adding Chinese white, watercolor can be made to look opaque.
