Art Appreciation-Chapter21-Early 20th Century Art Appreciation-Chapter21-Early 20th Century Presentation Transcript

  • Chapter 21
  •  Les fauves-the wild beasts Matisse is considered the forerunner of this movement that only lasted two years Matisse was trying to express his enthusiasm for life He simplified his forms to preserve the initial feeling he got from the object
  •  Expressionism-emphasizes inner feelings over objective description Simplifications of the subject’s form Bright expressive colors Areas of intense brushwork and areas of flat color coincide in the same work
  • Wassily Kandinsky Copyright ©2011, ©2009 Pearson Prentice Hall Inc.
  •  By 1910 Kandinsky was breaking a key rule in art  He was making art that was completely nonrepresentational He thought that art should transcend physical reality He sought to make a visual language akin to how we hear music or taste…. The content of the paintings is simply what the viewer experiences under the effect of the forms and color combinations
  •  Emphasized pictorial composition over personal expression Pablo Picasso is generally considered the inventor of Cubism Deconstructed and reconstructed forms  Often a forward view and a side view of a person or object is shown simultaneously  Abstracted forms
  •  Considered the main player in the creation of cubism Began as a traditional painter and began to experiment with collage and abstracted forms He was very influenced by African sculpture, especially African masks
  • Pablo Picasso Copyright ©2011, ©2009 Pearson Prentice Hall Inc.
  •  Fractured, angular figures No longer using the tradition representation of 3d space Cubists often show multiple views of one object at a time  Ex: simultaneously showing the front and side view of a figure

  •  Constantin Brancusi was a pioneer in the movement from 19th century to 20th century art He was inspired by the Cycladic sculptures and their abstract style He wanted his viewer to be conscious of form
  •  Italian Futurists were a group of artists inspired by cubism They often wanted to show fast motion and a love for the machine Multiplying the image and using lots of repetition became a strong way to show movement Curved and diagonal lines also gave a feeling of movement in their compositions
