Pablo Picasso, a modern artist, originated the cubism movement, as seen in his painting"Woman Seated in Chair", 1941. How would you describe this style? Is all of his work done in cubism style?
How would you describe the art in the Contemporary section of the museum? Why
do you think all of these works are considered art?
How is the art in this special exhibit different from works in other parts of the museum? How is it alike?
The Samurai were warriors of premodern Japan, who eventually made up the high ranking military caste or class. They employed a large range of weapons, but their main weapon and symbol was the sword. They were supposed to lead their lives according to ethic code of bushido ("the way of the warrior").
What can you tell about New Hampshire from this picture? What subjects might you expect New Hampshire artists focus on? Can you find a New York influence in their work?
How would you describe impressionism? Find a work by Claude Monet. Then see if you can find other artists whom he may have influenced.
