Known as a physician with a hobby of writing, William Carlos Williams, born in 1883, had a particular passion for expression through poetry. Inspired and influenced growing up in Rutherford, New Jersey, Williams dedicated all of his poetry to his grandmother, Emily Dickenson Wellcome. Modernism, the era in which Williams wrote, affected his poetry, as did poets such as Walt Whitman and John Keats. Thanks to imagism and modern painting, he acquired new strategies for verse forms, which he supported from the work of French post impressionists and cubists. He found sight to be his strongest sense, causing him to write many pieces relating to the arts. Despite receiving little recognition, he was a successful writer, with many of his works published in the 1920s. After battling a heart ailment and suffering several severe strokes, Williams lost his life in 1963, but his late writing possessed insightful expression and maturity (William Carlos Williams).
The impressionism movement has proven to be a very important time in history. It influenced the way art is generated and viewed today. The views and techniques utilized during this period have influenced the way individuals currently view the world. Impressionism laid its foundation in the artworld with its innovative ideas and techniques, the desire to rebel against what was recognized as art, as well as with its prominent artists.
In the early 20th century after the world war I, this was the period when modernism started. There was the industrialization, development of modern technology to solve problems and there was the modernist movement in writing also. This movement was characterized by a lack of confidence in the traditional ways of explaining existence and its meaning. Family, and religion were no longer seen as being dependable. Writers could not find any meaning in the old ways of writing, they did see the need to start writing in new techniques as the world was changing. In a way, Miller was a part of the modernism transition from the traditional way of writing. He made it evident when his characters in Death of a Salesman are attempting to come to terms with a capitalistic society which has been functioning for some period. Miller is trying to express the values society places on material wealth and the role models of success the society towards are not the best solution. In the play Willy is a societal failure, but were the other members of the society as successful as Willy?

Jackson Pollock's ability to play and distribute paint whimsically across large canvases expresses the true identity and beauty of paint. At least for me at the root of painting is the material itself. The love of mixing and watching paint come together is very profound for me. I always feel it is such a shame to toss out my paint mixings. I love the randomness and playful colors in odd shapes. It represents the time and thought I put into my canvas. I use to collect them on cardboard but after awhile it just becomes more stuff in my room. I need to collage my years of experimenting.
Paul Cezanne (January 19, 1839 - October 22, 1906) changed into a French artist and post-Impressionist painter whose paintings laid the rules of the transition from the 19th century thought of inventive endeavour to a brand new and appreciably exclusive international of art in the twentieth century. Cezanne can be said to shape the bridge among overdue nineteenth century Impressionism and the early 20th century 's new line of inventive enquiry, Cubism. the road attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cezanne "is the daddy people all" can not be without difficulty disregarded.
Step back and observe two cityscapes both similar in subject matter and composition, however unique in style and technique. One canvas is on fire, burning with the influence of impressionistic characteristics while the other stands strong reflecting the glow of the artist’s personal sense of precision. Together, these two paintings show eras that contrast one another and artists who evolved traditional teachings by depicting cities in ways that are now seen as revolutionary.
To be known, Monet and his friends spread out an exhibition together in 1874. With an independent and powerful style, the "Impression Sunrise" painting made artists be a great shock at that time. The layout was unclear. There was no symmetry between blocks and colors of the classical academic. The scene of this painting was ambiguous in the symphony of color and light. By bringing new and unique visual effects, paintings of Monet and his friends were the over standard. It was not surprising when these paintings were not well received. These were painted following completely different techniques with the arts at nineteenth century. Artistic critics react violently. Some of them like Jules Antoine, Emile Zola, and Felix Feneon had voiced their views on the way the natural science imbalances of this new style. In addition, the critic Louis Leroy based on the painting "Impression Sunrise" to mock them with an article titled "The Exhibition of the Impressionists". In response to these provocations, at the third exhibition in 1876, Monet and his friends used the word “Impressionism” to name their
