A style appearing in the United States in the late 1950s that in its methods and concerns recalls Dada, whose ideas were introduced to American artists by the composer John Cage. Rejecting the overblown rhetoric and adamant nonfiguration of Abstract Expressionism, which then dominated the American avant-garde, Neo-Dadists embraced depictions of the real world and strove to integrate art and life through the use of real objects in paintings and sculpture. Two principal adherents are Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.
