Who Are Some Famous Abstract Watercolor Artists?

Famous abstract watercolor artists include John Marin (1870-1953), Arthur Dove (1880-1946) and Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986). These three American artists are highly regarded for their contributions to watercolor and other mediums.

John Marin's abstract watercolor paintings were largely influenced by Cubism and Futurism. Some of his notable watercolor paintings are "Sunset" (1922) and "From the Bridge" (1933). Arthur Dove's abstract watercolor paintings are famous for reducing natural forms to their basic essences. His abstract watercolor paintings "Goat" (1934) and "Tree" (1935) are prime examples. Georgia O'Keeffe produced watercolor paintings including "Starlit Night" (1917) and "Evening Star" (1917), which are both representational and abstract watercolor works inspired by the southwest.
