Tachisme (alternative spelling: Tachism , derived from the French word tache –stain) is a French style of abstract painting popular in the 1940s and 1950s. The term is said to have been first used with regards to the movement in 1951. [ 1 ] It is often considered to be the European equivalent to abstract expressionism , [ 2 ] although there are stylistic differences (American abstract expressionism tended to be more "aggressively raw" than tachisme). [ 3 ] It was part of a larger postwar movement known as Art Informel (or Informel ), [ 4 ] which abandoned geometric abstraction in favour of a more intuitive form of expression, similar to action painting . Another name for Tachism is Abstraction lyrique (related to American Lyrical Abstraction ).

Action painting sometimes called " gestural abstraction ", is a style of painting in which paint is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied. [ 1 ] The resulting work often emphasizes the physical act of painting itself as an essential aspect of the finished work or concern of its artist. [ edit ] Background The style was widespread from the 1940s until the early 1960s, and is closely associated with abstract expressionism (some critics have used the terms "action painting" and " abstract expressionism " interchangeably).
