Nevertheless, along with these newly established genres existing ones flourished as well. Among them the preference was given to poetry which was appreciated for its ability to express profound emotions and contradictions of human soul. The Romantic poetry was a passionate protest against the rules, conventions and limitations imposed by the previous age. It varied from the strictly upheld formal style of neoclassical writings in its subjectivity, spontaneity and freedom of expressions.
Through the use of color, Matisse shows the viewer his mental mindset, his emotions, while creating this painting which adds a subjective lens to his interpretation of the subjects. The intense colors illustrate a “feeling” that would not otherwise come through if the colors were directly representational of the real natural world. The bright colors seem to evoke a sense of happiness and pleasure. There is a sense that everything occurring in the picture is alright and everybody is enjoying themselves.
Ezra Pound and his influence on modernism Ezra Weston Loomis Pound was an emigrant American poet and critic who was a key figure of the early modernist movement. Pound promoted, and also sporadically helped to shape, the work of different poets and novelists such as William Butler Yeats, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Robert Frost, and T.S. Eliot. His influence on poetry began with his development of “Imagism”, a movement stressing clarity, carefulness and conciseness of language. Modernism is a movement that arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Modernism rejected the certainty of Enlightenment thinking.
Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete. " The fruits of war" oils and acrylics on canvas. I choose this painting because once again i am a huge fan of abstract art. This piece has a deep meaning and a lot of emotion.
“Ode to a Nightingale.” However, as Dan McCall explains out in his essay, “Keat’s influence on the Great Gatsby should not be understood exclusively in terms of ‘literary imitation’”(McCall 522). Not only does Fitzgerald include very similar style of writing to his role model, but he also deliberately writes in a way that encapsulates the same emotions, evoking the same feelings Keats does in his poetry. Reading Keats’ " Ode to a Nightingale" illuminates new meaning and comprehension on to Fitzgerald’s complex characters, especially the enigma of Gatsby who spends much of the book shrouded in mystery.
His work was large in scale, flamboyant in color, and fluidity. He is most closely linked with what is known as action painting. No drop of paint is an accident and loose, rapid sweeping brushstrokes make this style reminiscent of the Surrealists. Pollock became influenced by Picasso, Miro alongside Rothko and the surrealists but soon developed his own unique style which he would later become famous for. Mark Rothko’s technique of painting departs from Pollock’s actions.
" This quote perfectly sums up the way poets think; they find the inner beauties of world, ideas and common sights, they see what others overlook. Poets do not write poems to change people's lives they write poems because they feel inspired by something and poetry is their way of expressing that inspiration. Poets are artists, the paper act as their canvas, and the words act as the many shades and colors of their paints. Poets
There is no better illustration of the roots of Lowbrow Art than Robert Williams’s Graphic Influences (Fig. 25). In this image, Williams lists a number of artistic inspirations for his style of Lowbrow Art. In Williams's paintings, one observes a tension between two conflicting extremes of high art and low art. He practiced the meticulous techniques of old master painters, but, at the same time, he betrayed these abiding techniques by using them to render strippers, geeks, monsters, and other salacious characters who have never defaced the canvas of an academic artist. The dichotomous aesthetic in Williams’s art is a parallel to his polarizing
The Romantic period believed that emotion was a form of intelligence, and art was a path to transcendence. As a result of the change in beliefs, Romantic poetry is often characterized by nature, imagination, memory, and wisdom. Imagination acts as a source of creativity, and allows us to see what is not immediately apparent. The Romantics believed that we could discover the imagination in nature, which often resulted in a harmony of the two. However, there are times when nature and imagination are in conflict with each other; for example, when imagination acts as an illusion, and distracts us from confronting the issue.
Two examples of Romantic poets are Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson, whose writing exemplifies the Romantic theme of individuality, or the divergence from traditional societal norms and beliefs. The poems “A Dream Within A Dream,” by Edgar Allan Poe, and “Much Madness is Divinest Sense,” by Emily Dickinson perfectly display this theme of individuality. Within these poems, one can see both the similarities and differences regarding the theme, numerous elements of Romanticism such as individualism, imagination, and insight, the impact the theme has on societal norms, and the timelessness of the theme by being incorporated into modern day culture. To begin, there are many similarities to be found within “A Dream Within A Dream” and “Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”. The most prevalent similarity between the two is the theme.
In the series of prints, Los Caprichos, there lies a dark, ominous visage of humanity, one in which we see the artist 's future work following the same style. The Sleep of Reason (fig 1). A human sleeps, quite peacefully, as if unintentionally oblivious to the bats and owls and lynx that lay in wait, ready to strike with wide eyes. A singular creature stands out from the rest, as it is staring at the viewer, rather than focusing on the sleeping figure. This forces us to meld with the world presented in the piece, to become an active participant in the world.
Modernism is a literary and artistic movement of the 20th century that can be defined as a set of values produced between World War I and II. Some examples of Modernist Literature are the essays Modern Fiction by Virginia Woolf and From Romanticism and Classicism by T.E. Hulme. These essays characterize Modernism by it’s rejection of materialism and the sensible view of hopes and dreams that it holds. And though not all pieces created in this time were an example of modernist literature, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is. This is due to its strong stance that man has limits, unlike the past literary movement, Romanticism, which viewed man as a somewhat perfect creature possible of anything, and the fact that it strayed from materialism, and focused more on internal conflict.
