Nicolas de Staël (1914-1955)  was known for his use of a thick impasto & his highly abstract landscape painting. Evolving his own highly distinctive and abstract style, which bears comparison with the near-contemporary American Abstract Expressionist movement, and French Tachisme, but which he developed independently of them. Typically his paintings contained block-like slabs of colour, emerging as if struggling against one another across the surface of the image.

Wols was the pseudonym of Alfred Otto Wolfgang Schulze (May 27, 1913- September 1, 1951), a German painter and photographer predominantly active in France. Noted for his etchings and for his use of stains (taches) of color dabbed onto the canvas (as exemplified by his painting Composition, c. 1950), Wols pioneered a new style of expressive abstraction. Though unrecognized in his lifetime, he is considered one of the most influential artists of the Tachisme movement.
