Barnett Newman (eng. Barnett Newman; 29 Jan 1905, new York, USA — July 4, 1970, new York, schoolA) — American artist, who worked in the style abstract expressionism. The most famous of his works are paintings of the color field. Newman was born into a family of Jewish immigrants, he became interested in painting in high school. In parallel with art education received a philosophical degree. After graduation, he worked in various fields, and in 1940 completely gave up painting for four years, devoting himself to the study of ornithology. Later Newman destroyed all of his early work. Mature paintings with vertical and horizontal lines at first were perceived by audiences and critics negatively. Newman received recognition only in the last years of his life.

Features of the artist’s work of Barnett Newman: 1948 was a pivotal year in the work of Newman. In this year he invented scenic innovation, which is called the "zipper": it was a vertical line that crosses the canvas from edge to edge. It first appeared on the canvas, "Unity I" and became the hallmark of most of his subsequent works.

Famous paintings of Barnett Newman: "Unity I", "Savagery", "Midnight blue".
