Transcript of Art and Fashion in the 20th century

Rococo The popular form of art during the greater part of the 18th century
Encompassed art, craft, architecture, interior design, and fashion
Romantic and flirtatious, elegant and sweet Art Nouveau Developed in the late 19th century through the aesthetic movement, and remained popular until the early 20th century
The first concentrated effort to produce a modern international style based on decoration
Characterized by flowing, rhythmic lines, and organic forms - especially plants Cubism Art and Fashion Katie Tsareva The two-dimensional forms of Cubist paintings were translated in fashion through droopy, amorphous forms suggesting abstraction rather than representation
The lack of structure in fashion of the 1920's was a direct contrast to the stiffness of earlier dresses Other influences of Cubism on dress included balancing big panes of fabric reminiscent of a Cubist field
Through use of the bias cut fashion was able to achieve motion and energy
Ornamentation is achieved through twisting and warping fabric, creating the same effect as a Cubist painting Surrealism Cubist-inspired fashion's love affair with two-dimensionality popularized Elsa Schiaparelli and her trompe l'oeil fashions, which transcended into the 1930's and 1940's in her Surreal designs Surrealist fashions relied heavily on surface ornamentation to produce witty or ironic statements
Surrealist representation of body parts and symbolism led to the association of desire with consumption
The most prominent of the Surrealist fashion designers were Elsa Schiaparelli and Charles James
Toward the end of the 1930's designers began to experiment with form and shape Pop Art Simplistic, playful, and child-like
Pop Art imagery was based on American mass media and consumer culture
Extensive use of pattern
Bright and fanciful color choices Op Art Relied on optical illusions and pattern to create motion in art Remodernism Remodernist art can be considered as anti-anti-art
Their manifesto, published in 2000 declared that the purpose of Remodernism was to find new meaning and spirituality in art
Remodernism is based mostly in painting, but can also be applied to mixed media, photography, sculpture, etc.
