Painting was not an immitation from natural elements, rather the painter brought his recalling regarding the nature to his canvas through his inner feelings. Abstract art, which was quite a formalistic manner, was a mean for achieving this artist’s desire. Abstract art in paintings has begun from expressionistic tendencies of the 18th century in Europe. William Turner is considered the initiator of this movement. Following this abstractionism path in painting, Impressionism and Cubism can be noted and Mondrian can be named as the accomplisher of this movement. Mondriani was the creator of Neoplastism and was effective in the De Stijl movement. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the evolution of formalism in Europe painting from 18 to 20 century. question of this research was that “what is the impact of the formalism process in painting on distinguished works of modern architecture in the early 20th century”.
