During the early 20th century a new art style emerged. Being the first abstract style of modern art, and which term “Cubism” now describes the revolutionary style of painting. Pablo Picassso and Georges Braques developed Cubism in Paris during the period of 1907 and 1914. This new style was initially influenced by the geometric motifs in the landscape compositions of the Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne. This revolutionary style marked the end of the Renaissance dominated era, and the beginning of the modern art.
When colonists began bringing back artifacts of African art, the posh masses of France flocked to see the ‘art’ created by such savage and animalistic beings (.48). When this Art was brought back to France, it inspired Pablo Picasso to create one of the first works of cubism. In 1907 Picasso visited the Trocadero Museum of Paris; He stated “the masks were not like any other pieces of sculpture, not at all. They were magic things.” In the same year, Picasso created “Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon” or, “The Young Ladies of Avignon”, which can be seen in Figure 1. This work is considered a major step in the creation of the cubist style.
I haven't lost any respect for the guy after reading this but I just thought he was a lot more normal. I understand that all artist usually are a little crazy but after learning about Gaudi and his rather dry personal life, I am shocked to see how Picasso was a master painter but also could star on a reality TV show and fair rather
He was most influential in the 20th century and later significantly impacted the development of the modern art with his distinct style (biography.com). Born to Don José Ruiz Blasco and Doña Maria Picasso y Lopez, Picasso showed his talent in art at his early age. His father, who was a professor of art and a painter, gave academic training to Picasso and by the age 13, he had lost interest in academic studies, shifting it to art. By the time when he was 10, his family moved to A Coruña and Picasso started to attend School of Fine Art. Just in a few years, his skills had surpassed his father’s by the time he was 13 (pablopicasso.org).
The first difference between Monet’s garden and Picasso’s garden is artist’s background information. Background information is a general fact of the artist himself, which will provide audiences the better interpretation of painting toward each unique painting style. Claude Monet, French artist, was one of the pioneers of impressionism in 1860s, mostly created his artworks in a well-known “plein-air” painting style (Perry, 1927). Impressionism, in fact, derived from his artwork entitled “Impression, Sunrise” which gave its impression in terms of conveying feeling to most viewers as they were in the same situation (Dempsey, 2002). In general, impressionist art focuses on capturing the natural surroundings in a brief moment and shows in a rough style of painting (Grant, 2010).
However the art critic did not mean it as a compliment but it gained popularity and in future use, took on a far more respectful connotation. The Impressionist movement transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Not only did he lead the French impressionist movement but he also led the way to twentieth-century modernism by developing a unique style that strove to capture, on canvas, the very act of perceiving nature. Impressionism continues to be one of the most reproduced styles of art for popular consumption and this can all be brought back to Monet and those inspired by him. Monet’s lead role in this period of time has lead to him being widely recognized for his participation and has made his work more popular because it represents a great period of
This artwork is Picasso’s “Night fishing in Antibes” made in 1993. It is oil on paint of a dimension of 6’9” and 11’4”. With a quick glance, many people wouldn’t understand this painting’s meaning at first, some may even disregard it as simply a people fishing. However digging deeper into this painting, there is more foreboding and a significant message than one may think at first. Picasso creatively uses principles like color, space, shape, balance, form, composition in this artwork.
He won the esteemed Turner Prize in the year 1995. Even though his career was flourishing, but he too faced some hurdles, especially when he sought to bring rotting cattle for an exhibition in the New York City in the 1995, but was stopped by the health authorities of the city.

Grant started painting in the late thirties, and studied school in Paris in his twenties. Eventually, he was familiar with modern painting and decided to paint like that for a long time. That soon ended when he returns to the Midwest, he forgot everything that he had learned about modern art to paint realistic style art. He wanted to paint art that had a cultural and colonial meaning to it. Around august,
Titian can paint reclining nudes with a virtuosity not found in many, or any, other painters of the Renaissance and beyond. Titian has been described as a master of paint and color to create seductive compositions. In his other dramatic scenes too of the Poesie, such as Perseus and Andromeda, he still provides a contrived and beautiful body spread in the best way to show of her figure. In Europa, he abandons this and he must do it for a reason. She is not sexually idealized; instead she is awkwardly flung about with her torso so scrunched up that any feminine curve that once resided here is now erased in folds of skin and fat.
Around 1917 Picasso was also working as costume andstage designer for Jean Cocteau 's ballet "Parade". Pablo Picasso 's works after 1918 can not be clearly categorized in terms of stylistic terminology, it contains objective-realistic, classicist, symbolistic, surreal and also abstracts elements.

Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art. Stanton Macdonald-Wright applied thin layers of dry paint in wide strokes on the canvas to create flat surfaces of color. In some regions, the painter uses the technique of drybrush to create a scratchy texture that let the under layer of white paint to show through. This created the transition from dark and intense hues to lighter shades of that hue, giving the colors a transparent quality. Although chiaroscuro modeling is not used,
I agree with the narrator from the da Vinci videos, that Leonardo da Vinci was the greatest artist of his age. The first reason I think that da Vinci was the greatest artist of his age is because of his painting of “The Last Supper”. When da Vinci painted “The Last Supper”, he painted with human drama and he also included passion into the painting. Another interesting fact of Leonardo’s painting of “The Last Supper” is that, he painted with oil paints on dried plaster instead of painting on wet plaster. “The Last Supper” was said to have brought triumph and tragedy because within a few decades, the painting started to deteriorate.
