Throughout history, many artworks have been strongly recognized and have greatly impacted society today. I will be discussing the works Number 1, 1949 by Jackson Pollock and The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. While researching, these artists have undoubtedly influenced other creators and art movements with their works through their lives of exploring art. When I first laid eyes on the work of art called Number 1, 1949 by Jackson Pollock, I was instantly reminded of another one of his pieces titled Autumn Rhythm, which I have previously studied and admired in a humanities course. They are somewhat similar at a glance, but when observing closely or side by side, the works contain several major differences.
The Starry Night is the only nocturne in the series of views from his bedroom window. In early June, Vincent wrote to Theo, "This morning I saw the countryside from my window a long time before sunrise with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big" Researchers have determined that Venus was indeed visible at dawn in Provence in the spring of 1889 and at that time was near its brightest possible. So the brightest "star" in the painting, just to the viewer 's right of the cypress tree, is actually Venus. The moon is stylized, as astronomical records Indicate that the moon was waning gibbous at the time Van Gogh painted the picture. Even if the phase of the moon had been a waning crescent at the time, Van Gogh 's moon is not astronomically correct.
Main Authors: Claude Monet: Is the true promoter of Impressionism, which always remained faithful. Born in Paris in 1840, spent most of his childhood in Le Havre, where he studied drawing in his teens with Eugène Louis Boudin. By 1859 Monet had firmly decided to start his career as an artist for what he spent long periods in Paris. In the 1860s he was associated with the pre-impressionist painter Édouard Manet and other French painters who would later form the impressionist school like Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir and Alfred Sisley. Monet painted working outdoors, landscapes and scenes of contemporary bourgeois society, and began to have some success at official exhibitions.
The Great War During the 18th century, World War One took place because of the assassination of the archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand. World War One, also known as the Great War, was one of the greatest wars in the United States history. With it being one of the greatest wars helped inspired a lot of poets to write about it such as Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. Wilfred Owen, the oldest of four children born into rapid success, was born on March 18, 1893 and died November 4, 1918. Owens only published five poems about World War One in his lifetime, but he wrote some of the best British poetry (Poetryfoundation.org).
Seurat unsuspiciously deeply influenced by French artist, Jean Francois Millet (1814 - 1875 ) and absorbed Millet’s subjects and his aspect of drawing. During year 1880, he began researching about the scientific knowledge about colour and optics to the art of painting. “Some said they see poetry in my paintings, I only see science.” said by Georges Seurat. Seurat believed by a combination or juxtaposition of primary colours and the complementaries are available to produce any colour. The result of focusing on colour analysis with a conscientious system of painting helps Seurat achieved into a new form of pictorial order.
