Modernist Styles, Including Cubism, Orphism, and Futurism

Modernist styles, including Cubism, Orphism, and Futurism challenged the practices of traditional representational art.

While some may argue that that the fact that modern styles were concerned with subject gives doubt to how challenging they really were to representational art I oppose this idea entirely. All art is representational in some way. Rather than a dismissing the concept of representation in art the modernist styles challenged the validity of the external representation, which had previously en the foundation of art, by focusing on conceptual representation. Traditional representational art is based on the representation of an image as it is, at a fixed...

Compare?Contrast Van Gogh and Chagall

Compacter/Contrast Van Gogh and Chloral For this essay, I chose to compare and contrast Vincent van Sago's "Starry Night" with Marc Chloral's "l and the Village". The two pieces are lovely and most interesting to evaluate in relationship to one another. I personally love both artists and upon closely examining these famous pieces, I have noticed how similar yet different these works of art are. Vincent van Gogh was a deeply troubled, post-impressionist artist and his painting "Starry Night" is his most famous piece. Working from memory, he painted the oil on canvas passing the time in Saint-Remy-De-Provence located in outworn France while undergoing treatment in an insane asylum. The piece is very energetic with eleven fireball yellow stars like connect-the-dots...

My opinion on Picasso works

I have studied Picasso work because it is simply spectacular. The way he makes the cubists painting is amazing, he can show more than Just one viewpoint in a single angle which makes the painting that much better because it is like an entire book in a single picture. The layers and colors that express the emotions of this Weeping Woman are shown so clearly. The expression 'Cry my eyes out' She literally cries her eyes out, they pop out of the eye socket. Cubism is a type of art technique that allows you to see more than one viewpoint of he picture from Just a single angle; so you see the emotions that she is expressing. By 1937 the great...

Dadaism And Surrealism

Introduction: The 19th. Century was an era of invention and discovery. The horrors of the First World War led to widespread social trauma. People found consolation in art and literature, and used it as a way to express their outrage caused by the war. People demented a form of expression that was honest, realistic, and critical of political and social behaviors. This Disillusionment following the war manifested itself in a number of ways, sparking artistic, literary, philosophical, musical, and cultural movements. In contrast to pre-war artistic movements, such as Impressionism, post- ar art became bleak and cynical, changing the rules, abandoning tradition. Literature mirrored the artistic movements in exposing the atrocities committed during the world war. Some people were revolted by...

Nonideological Modernism: Breslau Artists in the 1920s

Although Breslau’s artistic life coalesced around the Academy, the diverse per- sonalities and interests of Brcslau artists made the community truly significant. Looking back on his years in Breslau, the artist Alexander Camaro said. “On the one hand, we have truly lost this city (Breslau], on the other hand, it was an exceedingly fruitful cultural epoch and a spiritually liberal city. Not least, through the concentration, a fortunate combination of a circle of creative men. that seldom occurs.” Camaro implies that the cultural developments in Breslau were particular to the Weimar “epoch” and to Breslau itself. As Carl Lange realized, the situation in the East was a paradox. Breslau seemed isolated and remote, yet artists who went there discovered a...

Why Did Picasso Go Back To Cubism

Pablo Picasso was born in the twelvemonth 1881 ; he lived through the First World War, through the Spanish civil war and through the Second World War1. Of these epochs of human calamity, the Spanish civil war seemed to impact him the most. Picasso was in France during the belligerencies and as such was non obligated to contend for either side during the war.

Examining The Concept Of Cubism

Cubism, as expressed by Gallic modern-day creative person Pierre Reverdy, `` is a extremely distinguished art signifier ; a originative art signifier and non an art of reproduction or reading. '' ( Gantefuhrer-Trier, 2009 ) While my apprehension of Cubism is limited at best, but I must hold with Reverdy even though his words were simple and concise, they were shockingly true. Unlike Impressionism or imagism, both signature motions in the modern-day humanistic disciplines, Cubism is still respected really much as a innovator for its daze value and influence on the ulterior motions of importance in the twentieth century. Personally, I have selected Cubism as my interested country of research because of both its historical importance and its impact on...

Cubism project evaluation

The parts of the project that I enjoyed the most were drawing the wine bottle with the shading. I liked drawing the shoe at the first lesson because I found it easier to draw with cubism texture. The shading and perspective describe the shape and position of which the object is in. it looks 3D and coming out of the page. The way I carried out my observational drawings was that I look at the key features. Then I detailed it more and more until it looked good like the object. I also used positive and negative shape which is drawing the shades on a white piece of paper and drawing the light areas on a black piece of paper. This...

African art affected the style and subject matter of the Cubist art movement

The aim of this art history essay is to discuss the ways in which primitive, African art affected the style and subject matter of the cubist art movement. Cubism is considered as 'art of abstraction' which makes reference to the visible world but doesn't copy it. It depicts real forms in a simplified way - keeping only an allusion of the original natural subject. Cubism originated from Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in 1907. Their style was heavily influenced by post impressionist artist Paul Cezanne, who's later work starts to depict the multiple perspectives that defined the cubist period. The cubists felt that the traditions of western art in which subject-matter and style had been depicted had been unchanged since the...
