The way that artists depict scenes in art has evolved over time. Over the years, two dominant styles have come to the forefront – the Western and the Eastern style of art. Diving deeper into understanding different painting styles is truly a fascinating study and will give us an insight into the myriad expressions of art, all over the world.
Modernism in art is considered the art that was produced during the period between 1860 and 1970. It is a radical way of thinking by the artists of modern day and age, with no boundaries set by the traditional method holding their creative expression back.
This art form originated in Paris in the late 19th century. Some of the features of Impressionism include the use of common and ordinary objects, thin brush strokes, unusual angles.
3. Abstract Art:
Any artistic expression of reality that is illustrated but not in its truest form can be considered as an Abstract form of art. It is the true product of radical thought.
Abstract style of art takes on many forms and ‘expressionism’ is one of them. The overflow of human emotions is portrayed through the artist’s point of view.
Paul Cezanne, a famous artist once said – “Everything in nature takes its form from the cylinder, the cone or the sphere.” Interestingly, this later turned into the basis of ‘cubism’. This is another expression of abstract art and geometrical shapes form a very important part of this style.
Surrealism was a movement that sprung to light in the 20th century, in France. This art form sought to release the creative potential of the mind, by irrational juxtaposition of images. The Surrealism cultural movement includes visual art and writing too!
