material to create materpieces that some

some of the
most beautiful
pieces of work

a hole scene through the painting and each and every one express a topic that were inportant in that time.
Rococo and the 18th century
It began in the late 18 century and ended in the middle of the 19 century. It was a new Romantic attitude that represented the culture with a lot of art work based on emotions, nature and imagination.
The 16th Century was a really important year for art because they had some really good artist like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michel Angelo, Raphael, Paolo Veneziano and Giovanni di Paolo. The word reinassance means rebirth. The nude human body was the most important figure in art on those days. The religious images that had Christ and saints where in a human body.
16 century painting of Europe
The second halve of 19 century was called postivist age. Realism has like a goal to not imiting the past.
The High Renaissance in Italy is a short-lived period from c. 1485-1520 that corresponds roughly to the careers of important artists whose works reflect new directions being taken from early Renaissance art. The High Renaissance represents expressive ideals in the depiction of the human figure, the climax of the use of perspective space, and a strong influence of classical art.The most important characteristic of the period is the manner in which the greatest masters created personal styles that defy attachment to the early Renaissance, giving some justification to the idea that the discoveries of the 15th century were coming to an apex.

Prehistoric Art
the prehistoric art was made in a specific time called the stone age that is divided in three special periods: the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic.

What is Prehistoric Art?
Prehistoric art can be several things, from megaliths to little stone figurines, to paintings on the walls of caves. The term “prehistoric” indicates that the culture that produced the artwork did not have a written language. Some of the more famous examples are Stonehenge, the Nasca lines in Peru, and Lascaux Cave. Prehistoric artifacts and artwork can be found all over the world.

History of Prehistoric Art:
The study of prehistoric work includes the collaborative efforts of archaeologists, historians, and art historians. Each brings a particular skill to the table; archaeologists look at tangible evidence, through examination of stones, minerals, bone, tusks, etc. Historians work towards creating a chronology of evolution while the art historian studies the artwork in relation to its culture. However, in the case of prehistoric artwork, there simply is not enough evidence for an art historian to look at the socio-economic structure behind the work produced. Thus, the art historian will look at the image, or object, compare it to others of the time, and of other cultures, and will offer some suggestions, as will the other two disciplines, for the psyche and motivation for these ancient cultures to produce the works they did. When interpreting prehistoric artwork, concerns are the current threats, different approaches of interpretation, pigments (cave paintings), and dating. Throughout the search and study of prehistoric artwork, there have existed many theories to the meaning of driving force behind the creation of the work. To fully appreciate prehistoric work, archaeologists, historians, and art historians seek out clues of the cultures that produced such works. To go through each theory ever developed about prehistoric art would be painfully long, so the three main players of twentieth century prehistoric theory will be discussed.

As the cave paintings go back several chambers into rock, light must have been brought into the cave. For most caves, portable lights were used, most likely in the form of torches.

Paleolithic artists have five colors at their disposal: yellow, red, brown, black and white. Pigment was applied to the wall in several ways, but the most effective was a brush made of animals fur. The ceilings were painted as well, but no extended brush was needed, as the ceilings were so low.

Recent news:
The Lascaux caves were an immediate sensation. Shortly after the end of World War II, scientists began to note some deterioration on the paintings. Not long after, patches of green mold and algae ere visible. On April 20, 1963, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs closed the Lascaux caves indefinitely. The deterioration was the result of gas acidified affecting the water vapor being breathed in and out by visitors. Other threats to prehistoric works are animal droppings, weather, and temperature changes. In 1980, a popular reproduction project was set in motion. Today all caves of Lascaux are in their original condition, and visitors can still marvel at all chambers of Lascaux.

Through analysis, researches have found that to maintain the delicate environment within the cave, humans may only be within the cave for up to 8 hours, for 15 days. The maximum amount of persons to enter should be 12. Bearing this in mind, researchers conduct two studies a year, lasting for 15 days. Geologists and floor specialist are allowed two additional weeklong studies. Only half of the team enters on any given interval, equaling 8/9 persons per day for roughly 6-7 hours.

When entering the Brunel Chamber, there exist two groups of red, painted dots. Researchers have carefully suggested the technique they believe was used through observation of the direction of paint, the marks left by the creators. The dots were created by the application of a thick layer of colorant applied to the palm of the hand. It has been suggested that these groups of dots were created by different people—as indicative of the size of the dots. For the smallest group, it is believed that a woman or adolescent made them, as male created the larger group. The prints were made with the palm of the right hands. Small marks left by the thumb, or middle finger helps researchers place the posture and stance of the creators.

Pop Art is a type of art that uses popular icons such as celebrities, advertising, and movies. Pop Art began in the 1950's and 1960's. Andy Warhol is considered to be one of the most famous pop artists. One of his most famous works was the Campbell's Soup advertisement.

Op Art, or Optical Art, is a type of art that plays tricks on your eyes by using geometrical shapes and contrasts. When you look at Op Art you notice things that are not there but you think they are in the form of optical illusions. Victor Vasarely is believed to be the first Op Artists with his piece called "Zebras."
Impressionism in the 19th century
Post impressionism started when artists got influenced by impressionism but this artist used their own artistic styles which were more emotionally based than impressionism work.This age of post impressionism was called (The Impressionist Revolution).One technique used in post impressionism is Pointillism.Some famous artists of post impressionism are :Paul Gauguin , Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Rousseau, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Cubism was created by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque between 1907-1914 in Paris. The Cubist didn´t want the concept that art should copy nature, or that they should use the techniques like perspective, modeling, and foreshortening. So they reduced and fractured objects into geometric forms, and then realigned it within a shallow, relieflike space. They also used multiple vantage points. In summary of what was happening in society was that a new type of art was created and it was called the cine with voice.
