1.Cubism (1908-1917) Pablo Picasso created a canvas dissimilar to anything he or any other painter had ever painted some time recently, in 1907, a work that would significantly influence the course of workmanship in the twentieth century: "Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon," a chilling delineation of five bare prostitutes, disconnected and misshaped with sharp geometric components and stark blotches of soul, greens and grays. 2.Among Picasso 's numerous commitments to the historical background of workmanship, his most essential incorporate leading the advanced artisanship development called Cubism, imagining montage as an aesthetic procedure, and creating array (developments of different materials) in figure. 3.Their relationship kept going over 10
From 1907 to 1914, Pablo Picasso and George Braque have collaborated to create Cubism. In 1908, at the L’Estaque in emulation of Cézanne, the name of the style was created from Louis Vauxcelles’s comment on Braque’s landscape paintings as he regarded the forms of geometry in Braque’s pieces as “cubes”. The beginning of cubism is said to have been inspired by Primitivism as well as art that comes from countries that are out of the West. One example of this is the Demoiselles d’Avignon, which was a painting of Picasso in 1907. The painting was influenced by African Art, and probably by his visit to an ethnographic museum in Paris (Rewald).
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.
Crystal Cubism is a distilled form of Cubism consistent with a shift, between 1915 and 1916, towards a strong emphasis on flat surface activity and large overlapping geometric planes. Generally, there is only one color in each geometric shape, and separating the background by using lines. Sometimes, there are also some color contrasts between a few geometric shapes and the other parts. Before the war years, the artworks in Crystal Cubism were divided to Analysis Cubism or Crystal Cubism. During the war years, the name “Crystal Cubism” was appeared.
Picasso and Beuys Pablo Picasso is one of the most influential artist and main figure of cubism art. He was a very influential artist during his time and world renown I chose to research on him because of his character of being antagonistic towards people. The title of the piece of interest that I will talk about is Three Figures. According to the text the art piece is created using oil on canvas and was created on September 6, 1971. The piece has three figures and looks like the bodies are distorted.
Baroque art was a new art movement in Europe that evolved between 1600 and 1750. It was a distinguished art because of its movement and dynamism, and theoretically dependent on the mastery of geometry and space. The illusionism of baroque art is based on the capability to depict reality. All baroque art are varied outwardly but were the products of technical realizations of the renaissance. The term evolved in the mid-18th century when John Joachim used it to describe excessive art of the previous period (Rabb, 2000).
Then a new phase of the cubism started, the synthetic cubism, where the object is no longer torn apart in many planes, but the object begins to be synthesized in its essential forms and will again be easy to decipher. The entry in the box of extra-pictures materials allows to give each surface a simpler structure and a much more varied texture. The use of cut-out newspapers, with their texts, gives a new casual effect to the painting. This collage technique emphasizes the differences in texture and poses the question of what is reality and what is illusion in painting. An example of this phase in Picasso is Still Life With Caning Chair (1912) The context of Les Demoiselles d’Avignon was in the beginnings of the twentieth century that
In the same year, he responded to Cezanne’s experiments with his highly avant garde by that time painting called Le Bonheur De Vivre (The Joy of Life). Hi did borrow from Cezanne the idea of theatrical stylization: his painting also looks like a cheap theatrical curtain with its out of perspective nude figures whose postures refer to the famous paintings of the past. Matisse’s painting is very sensual and wildly erotic, it uses the typical for Fauvism wild color palette. The forms of the surrounding environment (shapes of trees at the pastoral) replicate the curves of the nudes. Same as Sezanne’s painting, The Joy of Life is highly cheap-decorative, abstract, it takes the Cezanne’s image deconstruction ideas further – it dissolves the objects and blends them into the environment.
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
Jennifer Mercado Art B37 Surrealism started in the 20th century and sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind. Surrealism was a movement that focused on expression, experiences and the artist 's imagination. Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird is a painting that has a bit of surreal influences and was created by artist Frida Kahlo in 1940. The painting depicts herself entwined with thorny branches and surrounded by different animals with a leafy backdrop. Surrealism was one of the styles often used by Frida Kahlo.
