These notions of portraiture have changed over time in many ways. Vincent Van Gogh’s 1887 Self Portrait, on the left, was painted using oil on cardboard, with visible dotted or dashed brush marks (his loved technique known as pointillism, where many small dots are applied to the canvas that blend into different hues when seen from a distance).

A primary influence that led to Cubism was the representation of three-dimensional form in the late works of Paul Cézanne.
In the history of art, on the other hand, the student of modernism can expect to run a gamut from the French painting of the 1860s to the American art of a century later and may even be directed as far back as the later 18th century (Modernism, 2003). When I was reading the information about Romanticism in the text Gardner’s art through the ages, I became fascinated by a painting I saw, “The Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On).” This oil on canvas painting was
