Throughout the early twentieth century, abstraction developed in painting, sculpture, and design, ranging in style from geometric to organic, with variations in between. Many artists and designers considered abstraction to be universal and egalitarian because a viewer's appreciation of abstract art did not depend on learned knowledge of history or literature.
