Informel stands for various styles of abstract art in post-war Europe. Tachisme or lyrical abstraction are related terms for painting that was able to free itself from all figurative specifications. In the USA in the 1940s, abstract expressionism was already developing in a parallel movement. With Paris as their launching pad, the Informalists conquered the European art scene. In Germany K. O. Götz, Gerhard Hoehme, Winfred Gaul, Bernard Schultze, Emil Schumacher, K. R. H. Sonderborg and Fred Thieler were the protagonists of this much needed artistic awakening.
