4. Fauvism
Fauvism grew out of Pointillism and Post-Impressionism, but is characterized by a more primitive and less naturalistic form of expression.
5. Dadaism
Dada was a protest by a group of European artists against World War I, bourgeois society, and the conservativism of traditional thought. Its followers used absurdities and non sequiturs to create artworks and performances which defied any intellectual analysis.
6. Futurism
Futurism was a modernist movement based in Italy celebrating the technological era. It was largely inspired by the development of Cubism. The core preoccupations of Futurist thought and art were machines and motion.
7. Surrealism
Surrealism is a style in which fantastical visual imagery from the subconscious mind is used with no intention of making the work logically comprehensible. Founded by Andre Breton in 1924, it was a primarily European movement that attracted many members of the chaotic Dada movement.
8. Expressionism
Expressionism is a style in which the intention is not to reproduce a subject accurately, but instead to portray it in such a way as to express the inner state of the artist.
1. Distortion
3. Mangling
5. Abstract Expressionism
Distortion – subjects are in a
mishappen condition

Ex. Henry Moore: “Recumbent Figure
Mangling in art shows subjects or objects which are cut, lacerated, mutilated or hacked with repeated blows.
Cubism – the use of geometrical shapes
and forms.
