Both artists took apart objects and "analyzed" them in terms of their shapes. Picasso paintings at this time have many similarities to Braque. Synthetic cubism was a further development of the genre in 1912–1919. They cut paper fragments, often wallpaper or portions of newspaper pages were pasted into compositions, marking the first use of collage in fine art. Picasso’s African-influenced Period begins with the four figures in his painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.
From afar, the work appears abstract and minimal; upon closer inspection, goodly eyes, reconfigured wigs, tongues, and lips of minstrel caricatures multiply in detail. In her earlier works, Gallagher glued pages of penmanship paper onto stretched canvas and then drew and painted on it. Walton Ford was born in 1960 in Larchmont, New York. Ford graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with the intention of becoming a filmmaker, but later adapted his talents as a storyteller to his unique style of large-scale watercolor. Blending depictions of natural history with political commentary, Ford’s meticulous paintings satirize the history of colonialism and the continuing impact of slavery and other forms of political oppression on today’s social and environmental landscape.
Whether he was using collage techniques, fusing, clippings from a magazine or a stroke of a brush he created powerful art that will be in minds forever. His visual recollections of the south drawn from real-life memories and stories are anything but usual. His painting “The Family” (1941) demonstrates Bearden’s love for the Cubist style and through this he addresses family’s complex relationships and rituals that were able to tie into my own real-life experiences. Romare Bearden demonstrates that you can take something simple and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful, and that is something he will always be remembered for. The painting, “The Family” can be easily be defined as a
Only in retrospect can we… explain more about Tello himself, the obelisk. Show. Pollock often said that his paintings had no “exact center” or finite point of focus, but required an equal amount of focus throughout the entire painting. Sue Taylor’s article discusses Pollock’s painting, Stenographic Figure, 1942, the same year that he painted Male and Female. Taylor considers the various approaches and interpretations for the painting in her article, from the pre-iconographic description of O’Connor to the psycho-analytical by Naifeh and Smith, whilst also offering her own lucid comment, ‘If Pollock injected “willed confusions” into Stenographic Figure, he did so ingeniously, leaving generations of viewers uncertain about its specific subject matter and content.’ Langhorne again tries to ‘explain’ the various motifs in the painting through Jungian analysis ; ‘Thus the numerical formula 66=42 can be seen as yet another statement of Pollock’s desire for a union of opposites’ , something Rubin attributes to ‘compositional needs’.
Art essay Shawn Barber’s body of work focuses primarily on painting, portraiture and documenting contemporary tattoo culture. Barber creates intimate renditions of tattooed individuals offering a balance of meandering lines, loose brush strokes and paint dripping. A lot of his works are abstract in nature featuring bold or shocking colours. I am particularly interested in his works as I have been concentrating on both dolls and portraiture in my sketchbook, both of which Barber focus‘s on in his collections ‘The Doll Series‘ and ‘Tattooed Portraits‘. I find tattoos in particular largely fascinating and the way Barber paints his portraits of tattooed models instead of the average model makes his portraits that much more intriguing to study.
Jackson Pollock used art as a way to express and convey his feelings and emotions and even the struggles that he has endured. Creative accidents in the art world influenced Pollock as he explored and attempted different methods of paint application. The American artist relied heavily on showing his feelings and thoughts indirectly through art by drip paintings. This painting has representation of gestural abstraction in which he applies paint in an unplanned and impulsive manner. In Full Fathom Five, Pollock used multiple layers of paint to create a build up as well as implanting random objects to the surface.
Sepias, browns, whites and blacks were the colors used to paint the entire mural, almost as if Picasso was trying to match the colors of a pencil drawing. The time as in a reference for when this painting represent, but the implied time is during the actual bombing of Guernica. It’s hard to place an emphasis on one part. The white horse is in the middle but it’s also mixed up with various other images that overlap. The Bull stands out by itself although the majority of it is covered in black or shadowed by the light.
Ferdinand Victor Eugene Delacroix (26 April 1798 – 13 August 1863) was a French Romantic artist regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school. Delacroix's use of expressive brushstrokes and his study of the optical effects of color profoundly shaped the work of the Impressionists, while his passion for the exotic inspired the artists of the Symbolist movement. A fine lithographer, Delacroix illustrated various works of William Shakespeare, the Scottish writer Walter Scott and the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. In contrast to the Neoclassical perfectionism of his chief rival Ingres, Delacroix took for his inspiration the art of Rubens and painters of the Venetian Renaissance, with an attendant emphasis on color and movement rather than clarity of outline and carefully modeled form. Dramatic and romantic content characterized the central themes of his maturity, and led him not to the classical models of Greek and Roman art, but to travel in North Africa, in search of the exotic.

Pop artists celebrated images from television, movies, and print media. In his monumental paintings, Close showed ³society¹s dependency on second-hand visual experiences². Using a photo realistic technique that showed a lot of detail, he painted mostly himself as well as family and friends. In his more recent work, Close has departed from these camera-like images and moved toward the use of multi-colored squares and diamonds that contain swirls of contrasting hues. From a distance these brushstrokes resemble a
