Art History ( in 15 minutes)
Modern Art
The Beginnings: Prehistoric

Greek Art is the foundation of Western Art. The Romans copied it and we still copy it today!
As civilizations began to spread, trade, and conquer. They learned from and were inspired by the art of other cultures
Art began to become a commodity of the rich
Students learned the trade from a master in a apprenticeship

The Renaissance
14th-17th centuries( late 1300's- early 1600's)

"The Renaissance's intellectual basis was its own invented version of humanism, derived from the rediscovery of classical Greek philosophy,
"Man is the measure of all things."

During this period of time, life was greatly improved. With inventions in art, literature, politics and science.

1. Humans have sought to make a mark and to create from the very beginning of civilization... even before we were "civilized" we made art.

2. Throughout art's history there were centuries of rules and restraints on art.

3. Modern art sought to break all rules and previous ideas about "what is art"

Modern Art : Broke all the rules!

After all if art is our imagination why are there rules to begin with?

They asked questions like:
What is Art?
Is the concept or the aesthetic(beauty) more important?
Does art serve a function or is just for the sake of art?
