I will discuss how her work shows in the form of illusion and geometry, the nature of sublime that shines in her paintings. From The historical Avant-garde came artists like Malevich who focused his ideas on an Investigation of the social meaning of colours and I will look at how his view on colours has greatly influenced contemporary art practices. Kasimir Malevich - Black Square on White ground 1929 Gillian Carnegie - Black Square 2002 Kasimir Malevich was the founder of the avant-garde movement of Suprematism. His famous iconic painting “Black Square on White ground “significantly shows his concept of Suprematism and his advance of the art mainstream. The Suprematism movement was influenced by the Russian Revolution which happened in October 1917 and inspired a art movement focused on primary geometric forms such as the square, rectangle, circle, cross, triangle; and a narrow range of
Distinctive characteristics of practice allow artists like Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali and Janet Laurence to affiliate with an art movement that suits their own intentions, and style of art. French-American sculptor, Marcel Duchamp’s range of witty intentions and simplistic techniques allow him to be identified as a member of the Dada movement. Dadaism is a European artistic movement that defied conventional aesthetic and cultural values by producing works centred upon nonsense, mockery and absurdity. Almost simultaneously, in 1916 artists from Zurich, Barcelona and New York began to state their disgust with the First World War and the futility of life at the time by creating works of what was considered to be non-art. Duchamp, following the dada objectives, created art as a protest against the barbarism of World War 1.
Katherine Mansfield’s the fly, (1922) presents the notion of a higher power controlling our lives and the dehumanising impacts of war. Ultimately, both texts reflect the forms and concerns of modernism in a myriad of ways. The impacts of the desire to “own” can be considered as being enslaved to materialism. This is shown in the metamorphosis, where gregor and his family want to look rich and do so by using gregor and his job. This is emphasised by Kafka through his continued use of symbolism to represent a bigger picture.

Looking closely at the composition and subject matter of his paintings, there are obvious visual and rhetorical links to the Roman Republic that the French revolutionaries aimed to emulate. I will also argue that his later works became even more politicised due to his involvement and the influence of the French revolution. The second example which demonstrates the strong effect of revolutionary thought on art comes from the 1848 revolution, also in France. The 1848 political revolution in France brought with it a cultural revolution and the public became a prominent audience for the arts. Arnason in his History of Modern Art describes this change in art exhibitions as “vast public affairs in which thousands of paintings were hung and thousands rejected for the revolutionary attempt to ‘democratize’”.
Lauren Johnson September 26, 2011 HST 355 Matisse; Colors of Pre-War Europe Many social and artistic changes occurred in the early 20th century and set the precedents of pre-war Europe. The Fauvist movement spearheaded by the works of Henri Matisse was a building block of neo-impressionism and modern avant-garde art culture. The fauvist works created by Matisse best depicted pre-war European society due to the dynamic approach to not only the fauvist movement as a whole, but the ideals portrayed in the art by the artist and the telling interpretation of the works. The Fauvist movement not only was telling of European society as a whole, but also was a predictor for future movements such as cubism and modern avant-garde. Europe prior to WW1 is often described as the “golden age,” a time defined by an abundance of consumerism and imperialistic ideals.
Rauschenberg and Warhol Pop Art Movement Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol are two of the most influential characters in the history of modern art. Both artists emerged around the same time but had such different depictions of “Pop art”. Pop art was the movement of the 1950's and 1960’s, which brought much controversy. It was mainly concerned with the concept of commercial products and mass media being the center of the art pieces. Popular culture was a major theme in the works of this time where many things were changing.
The Comparison of the Romanticism And Harlem Renaissance Art Period By September 18, 201 Throughout History, Art has often been the illustration to the current events of the time. I have found that Art movements have either gone against a certain political climate or accompanied a certain political or cultural ideal; it was almost like the news channel of the past. Certain Artist would show the region they were painting in a good light, and be in agreement to their culture, other Artist however would create in a protest to their current cultural situation. I chose The Romantic Art Period and the Harlem Renaissance period because although they were separated by almost two hundred years, the artist of both periods created art for the same purpose of showing an honest, or often unpopular political view of both generations. There is a vast difference in the cultural and political climate of the 1700’s and the 1920’s as many may know, but my interest is in the remarkable similarities that artist share, even over such a large time-span.
whereas Holden's rebellion is demonstrated through symbolism throughout the text, stream of consciousness and his ideals. Holden and Igby are both on existential journey, in which they desire to find their place in society. The hypocrisy present in the corresponding texts of Catcher In The Rye and Igby Goes Down is manifested through Holden's ideals and Igby's values and beliefs. The language of Igby clearly reveals how he feels towards the concept hypocrisy, he despises it. Holden loathes people who he says are phony or fake.
Through enlightenment theories brought forth by a move to logic and scientific reasoning rather then religious dogma and superstition, the philosophers of this time opened up thought patterns. Leading to an expansion in creative ideas. Artists felt the inspiration to explore and discover new emotions within their work. Especially within music the rigid structures of form and instrumentation previously adopted by Baroque composers was being thrown out the window by late classical era ones such as Beethoven and Mozart. As we progressed into the 19th century this nationalistic fever was caught by composers and brought forth a romantic explosion in musical composition.
