He painted only the things that appeal to him in a scene overlooking the less attractive details. Impressionist artists often are realistic concerned in what is truly there, particularly in positions of light. People claimed that Renoir gives something that is not really there and he paints what he wants to see. But, the most fascinating thing about his style is that you can feel an emotion, a movement of a scene and sense the atmosphere. During his life and his studies of art in Paris, he made some artist friends like Monet, Sisley and Bazille.
The painting Les Demoiselles D Avignon by Picasso is considered one of the most important work that defined the era of Cubism in modern art. The central argument in my paper is to understand Les Demoiselles D Avignon as a revolutionary painting of Modern Art. One of the important aspects of Cubism is the wide influence of African art and masks, primitivism and African sculpture. The painting Les Demoiselles d Avignon by Picasso
This way the author, just as in Wincklemann ideas makes beauty out of simplicity and perfection. Furthermore, the drapery used be the artists to dress the figures is typically light and not restraining at all, another characteristic of the Greek art. (The purpose of the neoclassical movement is that of imitating the Greek art). The idea after all the paining is to transmit a message of simplicity, austerity, heroism and stoicism. We have a strong contrast in the painting depicted not by any means of decoration but by the posture of the men and women.
One single painting can be looked at through a million different lenses. The art styles reveal the temper and culture of the time. The two most crucial styles, Rococo and Neoclassical were assorted in similarities and differences such as influences, style, and theme. Rococo and Neoclassical art both possess beauty through this revolution of art eras. The painting The Love Letter, by Jean Honore Fragonard and the painting Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes by Marie Denise Villers are similar yet distinct in their own ways.
During the Baroque period artists strived to propel themselves away from the idealism of the Renaissance and instead pursued the path of naturalism. This era of art was filled with dynamic images and the artists at this time were desperately attempting to capture a single moment of time in their artwork. One such artist was Diego Velazquez, who longed to utilize his artistic abilities in order to advance his position in society. He believed that their was no nobler profession than that of an artist, and so he sought to prove his value through his creative talent. He succeeded in his quest because his paintings garnered him critical acclaim and earned him the praise of the monarchs of his time.
Although it embraces a variety of art styles Baroque is mainly characterized by grandeur, realism, and emotional drama. The Roman Catholic Church realized that these traits would allow sanctioned art to appeal to the greater masses. Art from this era is eye-catching and is particularly good at drawing the interest of its audience. By targeting the physical senses, artists induce emotions in their audience which helps to create a connection with viewers. Emotional drama, realism, and grandeur are primary characteristics throughout the broad variety that is baroque art, and every piece has been influenced by all three in some way.

Artists like Bernini and Rembrandt are prime examples of how patronage affects their art, whilst still being part of the baroque era. These Baroque elements are so engrained in the system of patronage that even outside the Baroque era when an artist is commissioned through the patronage system their work can’t help but take on these and other baroque elements. Starting with an artist like Bernini who under the patronage system created some of the most revered sculptures of the baroque era. Born in Naples, Italy Bernini got a lot of his patronage form Italians. One of his more notable patronages includes the sculpture of “The Ecstasy of St. Teresa” which was commission by the Cornaro family for their personal chapel.
In this General Art History course work, we are going to talk about the Four Seasons Collection by Giuseppe Arcimboldo from the 1570s. As the work was going on we were debated with some questions that, as far as we are concerned, helped us to understand the art of this pioneer series of paintings. Some of the questions that we struggled were: Which are the main symbols that were chosen? And how did it influence other artistic styles? A marvellous painter with a powerful mind and talented hands, got his work and intelligence greatly admired by his contemporaries in life.
First of all, the Rococo style was born in France and reflected the tastes of European autocracy. Its key features were ornamental delicacy, intimacy, and playful elegance. While on the other hand, the Neoclassic style was free of frivolous ornamentation. It states, “its interior consisted of clean and rectilinear walls, soberly accented with engaged columns..” (Fiero, 188). The Rococo style was more of decoration and ornamentation.
