The Biggest Influences In Art History

  1. 1. The Biggest Influences In Art History Anatoly Vanetik
  2. 2. From Mona Lisa to Jackson Pollack splatters and O'Keeffe horizons, every artist had to start somewhere. While many of today's most recognizable artisans carry a style as instantly identifiable as their names, many of them looked to the greats preceding their legacy in order to better understand and develop their own methods and aesthetics. Below you will find just a few of those individuals and their inspirations— don't be surprised if you start feeling a little inspired yourself.
  3. 3. Ellen Harvey Ellen Harvey, a Brooklyn- based artist who works in a variety of mediums including painting, installation, video, and performance, cites early childhood encounters with art as life-changing.
  4. 4. Harvey recalls trips to European art museums where she first discovered pieces like Rogier van der Weyden's The Last Judgment (1445–50) in the Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune in Burgundy and Botticelli's La Primavera (ca. 1477–82) and Birth of Venus (ca. 1485) in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. It was after these meetings that Harvey realized she wanted to be an artist, and moreover, the point when she remembers beginning to draw obsessively.
  5. 5. PAT STEIR Pat Steir, an American painter, and printmaker, is best known for her abstract "drip" paintings, recalls reprints of art pieces in Skira Editore books as her juvenile enchantment. "All the colors had an orange or green cast," she says, reminiscing on the primeval four-color printing process. "I thought I could never be an artist, because how could I control the green and orange colors? It seemed hopeless."
  6. 6. David Kimball Anderson For David Kimball Anderson, a photographer, and sculptor, it was items encountered on road trips and visits to foreign cities that originally sparked his curiosity. On the wall of his childhood barbershop, hung a painting of a covered bridge in New England. This image struck Anderson so emotionally that it compelled him to begin creating works comprised of objects that, when arranged together, could evoke the geographical aesthetic and memory of a certain place.
