Art Movements

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Historical Influences The historical backgrounds and artists work have influenced and inspired me with their creativity. My favourite art period is the 19th century. My favourite art movement is cubism with its quirky shapes and bright colours, as I prefer the more modern and contemporary approach to art than the life like paintings of landscapes and everyday people of the art period impressionism. Cubism I feel is very expressive with its broad lines and bright use of colour that compliment each other. My favourite piece is the weeping women in oil.

Conclusion

It was a reaction; development of abstract expressionism in being free to speak out opinion. Pop art did this in a more productive way using mechanical means or rendering techniques that down play the expressive hand of an artist giving everyday object a place in art.

I am going to use bright colours in my 3D design and using images to portray something about myself as images can sometimes understood more clearly than words. Overall I feel looking at the movements showed me different ways of analysing something in more depth; how the use of colour and something so simple can say a lot about you. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
