One of the last topics we discussed in class turned out to be a form of art that probably interests me more than almost every other type of art that we have discussed this entire semester. That form of art is the impressionist style of painting. I really love all the different brush strokes that form different images for different people. I also enjoy much of the images that the impressionists painted, because they are usually very relaxed and mellow images that put you into a comfortable place. The post-impressionist period, especially very early post-impressionist, is even better I think. I think it’s better because it is just a little more refined and puts more emphasis on the figure and form of different objects. Since I enjoyed the post-impressionist’s
This work embodies the period style because it contains avant-garde geometric shapes to define the forms, colors, and interpretations that were important to the Post-Impressionists. First off, the harshness of the lines goes hand in hand with the shapes that exist in the work. The shapes tend to be simplified shapes, which demonstrates that Cezanne wanted things to appear as if they could be broken down. Cezanne utilizes an array of geometric
The painting shows five women naked with flat figures, disintegrated planes and faces, inspired by African masks. The compacted space the figures occupy appears to project forward in jagged shards; a fiercely pointed slice of melon in the still life of fruit at the bottom of the composition teeters on an impossibly upturned table top. In this painting, Picasso makes a radical departure from traditional European painting by adaptation of Primitivism and abandonment of perspective in goodwill of a level two-dimensional picture of a plane.
This paper will compare the themes found in the paintings "Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist and an Angel" by Domenico di Bartolomeo Ubaldini (Puligo) and "Madonna Enthroned" by Giotto. Both paintings deal with fables from the Christian faith but were executed during different periods in art. The Giotto painting was created around 1310 and the Puglio painting was executed between 1518 1520. Here, these two paintings have similar themes both at the extreme beginnings and endings of the Italian Renaissance, and as such they serve to present an exceptional example of the developments in art that occurred within that time. This paper shall compare
In my I chose to compare two cave paintings from the paleolithic period, The first cave in called Lascaux, and the second cave called Altamira. As we know that the Paleolithic time period is from 30,000 BC to 10,000 BC. The most common theme in cave painting during that time period was like a bunch of a large animals such as bison, horses, cows, deers, lions, birds, and aurochs. In those two pieces of cave painting I found alots of common stuff like the animals and the story of the painting as well but their are some differences like the purpose of the paintings, so in the first cave painting which is the Lascaux Their was a story behind this painting which is telling us about the wars during that time period; in the second cave painting which
“In Cubism paintings, objects are broken apart and reassembled in an abstracted form, highlighting their composite geometric shapes and depicting them from multiple, simultaneous viewpoints in order to create physics defying, collage- like effects” (Biography.com Editors). This innovative art form was very diverse from any other and he was able to create an unseen theme resulting in the new style, Cubism. As said in this article, “Pablo Picasso is most known for instruction of cubism, and modern approach to painting. Which set forth the movements to follow in the twentieth century” (Pablo Picasso and His Paintings). They were two different forms of cubism that were created, analytical and collage, by Picasso and Baroque. Each type focused on the composition of different ideas combined into one piece of artwork. Analytical, the first form of cubism, was the breaking down but put together form of Pablo’s new art style (Pablo Picasso). An example of this division of art would be “Break and Fruit Dish on a Table”, which shows the new perspective being shown with the fruit dish. The simplicity of the geometrical shapes coming together to form a complex image was repeatedly the case for analytical
It would allow Picasso to move forward into a kind of paintingthat was totally new (Sayre 455). The painting is considered the predecessor of Cubism, anartistic style initiated by Picasso and his friend and colleague painter, Georges Braque. In Cubistpaintings, objects are broken apart and reassembled in an abstracted form creating college-likeeffects. His creative styles go beyond realism and abstraction, Cubism, and Surrealism. Picassoonce said, “You expect me to tell you: What is
Their idea was meant to show the originality of the painting and the complication of the painting. One of their very first paintings was Mia Jolie which amazed everyone. Picasso wasn't known for cubist style painting instead many know him for his artwork blue period. Soon after he discovered worm colors he ended his blue period painting style.
Picasso’s work surfaced the way around pure thoughts. Regardless of the undesirable, abstract form certain of his rigorous cubist work. All of Pablo Picasso’s paintings are of something. Viewers can almost always point out familiar images in his work of art. Although some of the images may appears as random objects you may have in your own household, most of his artwork contains the female
Picasso’s Three Musicians is a prime example of Cubist style. To fully understand cubism, a person needs to understand that the subject of the artwork becomes a sequence of planes, lines, and arcs. Another aspect of Cubism art has been described as a reinvention of an artist’s analyzation of shapes. This analyzation of shapes show how artists subject and reinvent them on a canvas. (The Free Library)
Picasso is more spontaneous application of color, there is less uniformity. In Matisse there are more color schemes, the composition is more rigid, even if it's not more descriptive; it is a still life more organized, with more degree of stability. Unlike nudes of Picasso, the nudes of Matisse with safety on the line and in the tone, makes to describe him as a flat painter. Matisse made a complex image, winning the back of the woman through the looking glass with a few simple strokes, spontaneous, but courteous Matisse achieved the creation of a space, bed, and room which is no longer description to be magic and especially calligraphic rhythm. If Picasso paraphrased other artists, Matisse makes metaphor from other poems, as the mirror
Since the first day of this class, we know that the art is made by what the artist think, see, and imagine but not by how we can interpret the artist’s work in our eyes or other senses of interpretation in any scene. To make an exception, Picasso broke all the known classical rules of three-dimensional space as we can see in the "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," the use of colors, figures and subject matter. In a known art style called "cubism", Picasso painted one of the most important works of art in all art history and began a new era with a single work of art. In Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the painted his initial attempt by breaking all classical rules and changed the world of painting forever. One aspect that makes Pablo Picasso's art to be distinguished from earlier artists is the lack of three-dimensional space displayed in his art. In “Les Demoiselles d'Avignon”, the five lady figures seem to be enveloped in what might be construed as the background. If we look closely, the painting seems to be in a form that goes around all pursuits of spatial depth and maintains a relationship to the pictorial surface of the

Between 1907 and 1914, Picasso collaborated with Georges Braque and together they produced a style known as Cubism. The period after World War I indicated an apparent return to the art of realism for Picasso as seen in a pencil drawing of 1915, Portrait of Vollard. This small work foretold Picasso's renewed curiosity in descriptive interpretation, which, for some time, ran parallel with cubism. During the 1920's, a growing sense of unease was expressed through Picasso's work and a style shift started moving from Cubism to being closer to surrealism (an artistic movement of the early 20th century that stressed fantasy and the subconscious mind).
Paul Cezanne’s painting “The Large Bathers” was his last and arguably his greatest work. Cezanne labored on this painting for seven years. The subject is a group of women bathing by a river. The canvas
