Isabella Draack Hour 2 World History William Kvebak The Conquest Of Africa As the world came upon the start of a new century, more and more powers grew desperate and hungry for land and more control. As more and more people wanted more land, Africa became available. Between 1450 and 1750 the Europeans traded with Africa. By the 19th century, the Europeans began exploring the lands of Africa, looking at all Africa had to offer. Henry Stanley, a journalist, is one of the people that sparked an interest in Africa.
Impressionism had a distinct style that was once frowned upon by society but eventually became accepted. The art style is created by doing quick brush strokes of unmixed color on canvas. The brush strokes are not blended, and it would still display depth based on dark and light hues. The founding fathers of Cubism were Braque and Picasso, who invented Analytic Cubism. Analytic Cubism is identified by the usage of strong geometrical shapes that forces the viewer to guess the portrait’s intention by breaking organic shapes to sharp geometrical
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.
Numbering the work allows the viewers to wonder and decide for themselves and truly see the pure painting for itself. For me, the painting appears to be busy but also reflects the human condition of happy in behalf of the many colors. This particular piece is important, worthy of attention, and can be closely connected with individuals today and in the future as it was in the past when it was created. It gives observers the opportunity to exercise their imagination, study, view, and enjoy the painting for what it is, instead of having the influence of a title to depict the inspiration behind it. Through these types of works, Pollock pitched in and played a big part on the Abstract Expressionism movement after World War II in New York City ("The Impact of Abstract Expressionism" par.
Art shifts through time, it is combined of different movements. This research paper will discuss the different shifts of art culture in style, philosophical approach, and content of artwork in abstract expressionism. Abstract expressionism is a painting movement that developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s in and around New York after world war II. Jackson Pollock, Isamu Noguchi, Martha Graham, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman are all artists that considerably influenced that movement. Artists always wanted to express themselves in the paintings and show what they are feeling.

Senegal is one of the most productive of cultural centers in Africa. This country has undergone many cultural changes due to the colonialism oppression they went through with the French. These changes started when they got their independence from the French people. The Senegalese people decided to gather ideas from the French culture and used it to make a music of their own. Furthermore, not only did they take cultural ideas from the French but also from the Cubans and Americans.
Many artists are influenced by specific theories or ideas in their practice; especially the artists of the surrealism movement, who gathered their inspiration from dreams, nightmares and images from the subconscious, but also through the ideas of psychologist Sigmund Freud. This allowed their paintings to be extensions of their mind. The end of the Dada movement allowed the birth of the surrealism movement in Europe during the 1920’s, which began with a French poet, named Andre Breton, who wrote the ‘Surrealist Manifesto’, which described how he wanted to combine the conscious and subconscious into a new reality. Surrealism was a way artists were able to use their ‘inner mind’ and complex symbolism to create meaning in their artworks. Surrealism was an artistic movement that took place from 1924 through World War 2 that sought to overthrow the oppressive rules of modern society by
Numerous studies have been carried out on the slave trade’s consequences on the African continent’s development. It is widely agreed that it has caused a tremendous slowdown in the Black Africa development because of the human hemorrhage it provoked and the widespread disorganization of African states and nations’ lives exposed, at all times, to this terrible scourge and totally destabilized in all spheres of economic, social and cultural life. Actually, the colonization began as early as the fifteenth century when the Portuguese arrived followed by other colonizers (French and English in particular) who had set up trading posts on the African coasts. From this moment on, military, merchants, missionaries (the 3M) kept crossing the continent.
This is because, impressionism was an entirely new way of looking at and painting the world, resulting in the emergence of various styles that would not have developed if not for the influence of Impressionism and the ideas and feelings it aroused in the world of the art. In my candid perspective, in the past centuries, impressionism has distinctively proven to be the first modern art style even though it was viciously ridiculed and scorned by the conservative French Le Salon during its emergence. Furthermore, impressionist artists and their work were often rejected by museums with the premise that their arts were unfinished, which constitute an insult and aberration to the body of artists; therefore, as previously mentioned, the name, impressionist was coined for these artists and gradually, a movement began (Impressionism Art, 2016). Nevertheless, with the passing of time, the name, impressionism became appropriate and accepted by these artists because it did accurately describe the style of art they were portraying. While most artists were used to the finely finished paintings, the impressionist artists were inspired in capturing the “momentary, sensory effect of a scene - the impression objects made on the eye in a fleeting instant” (The Art Story, n.d.,
