Modern Art History OR What happened after all the guys stopped just painting saints
Transcript of Modern Art History OR What happened after all the guys stopped just painting saints
What happened after all those guys stopped painting saints.
Feeling over reason.
Nature over artifice.
: the artist captures the image of an object as someone would see it if they just caught a glimpse of it.
3 things you need to look for in a painting :
1. Brush Strokes
2. 2d vs 3d
3. what emotional response do you have?
Characteristics of Impressionism:
lots of color/ bright and vibrant
images without detail but with bold colors
elaborate ornamental style based on asymmetrical lines
frequently depicting flowers, leaves or tendrils (flowing hair of a female)
graphic style, illustration, (Japanese and Celtic influences)
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
broad strokes of unmodulated color, simplified
flat abstract forms, definitive
escape from reality. lost paradise
:expressing emotions/ symbols rather than just pictures
:requires the audience to
observe carefully in order to get
some facts about the artist, his intentions, and his enviroment before forming judgements about the work
: distortion and exaggeration
for emotional effect
:rejecting the single viewpoint. Instead they used an analytical system in which three-dimensional subjects were fragmented and redefined from several different points of view simultaneously.
: release the unbridled imagination of the subconscious
looks like imagination thrown onto the page
geometric shapes but not real anything
sense of humor
a dream place with no real people places or things.
:or" The New York School"
artists reflect on their inner sources ( thoughts, dreams, fears) with a high importance on the process. Valuing spontaneity and improvisation over long drawn out detailed work.
emphasis on dramatic, energetic
fields of color
use of size to help convey powerful
emotions about the act of painting itself
Something that has never been done before
complete departure from everything that came before it
Postmodern art is a term used to describe an art movement which was thought to be in contradiction to some aspect of modernism, or to have emerged or developed in its aftermath. In general, movements such as Intermedia, Installation art, Conceptual Art and Multimedia, particularly involving video are described as postmodern. The traits associated with the use of the term postmodern in art include bricolage, use of words prominently as the central artistic element, collage, simplification, appropriation, a return to traditional themes and techniques as a rejection of modernism, depiction of consumer or popular culture and Performance art.
Neoclassicism: The classical ideal or longing for what came before.
:sinuous lines and "whiplash" curves were derived, in part, from botanical studies and illustrations of deep-sea organisms
Of course it's art! Why wouldn't it be!?" The paintings have color,layers, texture, and beauty to them.
So why when people hear that this painting is done by a 2-year-old girl, it suddenly makes it "not art."
Why does the age of the artist decide whether the painting is "art" or "not art" ??? - Isabel Antic
"Personally, I am not a huge fan of abstract art because I think that it takes no skill, and the artists make up a dumb meaning behind it to make it seem deep. I believe that if an artist is truly talented, then they can create a piece of work that can really impress people. I do not doubt that abstract art is truly art, I just don’t buy that it has a deeper meaning than paint splattered on a canvas."- jack T
I think that if someone thinks something is art, it is art to them. I don’t thinks someone can say “This is art” because while it might be art to one person, it might not be considered art to another.- Juliet
"I believe that, no matter how cute, Aelita is just a little two-year-old girl, and in my opinion, no true artist, at least not yet." - sophie K
"But what she is making is art to me. She is making something by herself and i don't see any reason why that could not be considered art. When i was 3 and i drew a stick person with some grass behind it i considered that art and i still do. "- Augie
Aelita Andre has created dozens of paintings that sell for thousands and thousands of dollars, which I think is pretty remarkable. Seeing that a toddler can make thousands of dollars off of paintings that took no thought, can prove to anybody out there in the world that you can be anything if you put your mind to it. - Emma
As we discussed in class in the beginning of our art lessons you said that it isn’t art if it doesn’t have a meaning behind it. Since a 2 year old drew these paintings it does not count as art because she doesn’t have any intention behind it. The little girl is just playing with paint and her parents are giving her art work titles and saying that it does have meaning. - Linnea
Is it Art?
