Baroque art evokes emotional states by giving appeal to the senses, creating dramatic expressions movement, vitality, grandeur, tension, blur distinctions, and sensuous richness in various arts. According to Patrick (2007), Catholic counter-reformation efforts against Protestantism influenced the development of the baroque art. Catholic Church used baroque art to react to mannerism and social turmoil of the period. Catholic Church and the council of Trent emphasized on artworks that clearly interpret realistic subjects.
Thus, the aim of this paper is to interrogate and illustrate the strategies and approach used by the artist to portray the significance of the animal subjects in her paintings. To do this the aforementioned works will be examined in regards to their visual qualities and there will be comparisons made between them and the historic climate that they were created
They were normally large wild animals such as the Eland, Antelope, rhinos etc. The animals they painted were not the animals they ate or hunted but rather animals they believe had powers and they associated with their religion. When they painted these animals they Stencils of geometric painting comparing ectopic so to the North Western Cape and Magaliesberg Ancient European rock art in Spain were realistic but usually they were bigger in proportion to the human figures because the San painted in hierarchical proportion.

I selected The Large Blue Horses(1911) by Franz Marc because the the way he used bright colours, curved line and his subject matter is horses not humans, it has no reference to world war 1 which was a few years away from when he finished his painting and tension was already being felt and other artists were reacting to it through their art.

Design has been and still is represented by a lot of movements, always evolving by the influences of older concepts but also by the apparition of new inspirations. Art nouveau and the Bauhaus style are two types of design which represents, for different reasons, important periods. If they are close from each other in time, they are, however, different in term of concepts, meaning and vision. The context in which they were created might explain more about those contrasts.

The Post- Impressionist period follows the Impressionist period by splitting artist into two sides. Some artist felt that the artwork during the Impressionist period may have been too sketchy and lacked formal structure (Frank, 2014). Still, other artist thought there was too much emphasis on objective observations, which caused a lack of personal expression and spiritual content (Frank, 2014).
