A term invented by Theo Van Doesburg in 1930 to replace the term Abstract Art. A review bearing that name, which appeared only once, was started by Van Doesburg in April 1930, less than a year before his death. Since then Concrete Art has been used in preference to Abstract Art in the writings of certain artists such as Arp and Max Bill. It has had a certain vogue in avantgarde circles in Switzerland and the Argentine. The term is interchangeable with Abstract Art, but it should not be forgotten that from 1910 to 1950 the masters of this art (Kandinsky, Malevitch, Mondrian and Van Doesburg himself) never used any term other than Art Abstrait, or Abstract Art.
