CoBrA

About

An international artist group active between 1948 and 1951 whose name is derived from the first letters of the capitals of the members’ native countries: Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam. In the wake of the destruction of World War II, CoBrA rejected Western culture and Surrealism—the most influential prewar art movement—emphasizing instead experimentation and spontaneous expression and drawing inspiration from children’s drawings and the art of ‘primitive’ cultures.
