Recent Art Movements

Since the modern art movement has begun, there have been several sub movements within that category of art. It has been over 100 years since the dawn of modern art and the scene is constantly changing and art has changed with the times.

One of the most famous forms of art and the start of modern art is impressionism. This form of painting started in France at the end of the 19th century as artists sought to capture color and light rather than form and perfection. This is the reason that many impressionist paintings are of outdoor scenes or of vibrant subjects. It’s typical for this type of painting to not have borders or clearly defined lines. Up close, this type of painting might not makes sense – from afar, you can really take it in.

Post impressionism movement isn’t necessarily a movement but more a collection of artists seeking to define their own style. For example, Seurat painted impressionist paintings using no brush strokes, only dots.

Fauvism, from the beginning of the 20th century, is impressionist paintings with exaggerated colors and over simplified lines. The purpose is said to be that the artists feelings are more important that the actual subject of the painting. And, at times, these paintings look amateur but they are painted by a master.

Expressionism is all about expression while still embodying impressionism. In these paintings, you will find emotion and spiritual  portrayals of the world.

The abstract art movement is the art of abstraction. In art, this means that something is withdrawn in order to consider is as something different. To a painter, this means that the shape, tone, pattern, form, or lines are withdrawn from the subjects.

Cubism started around 1907 with Picasso and Braque. Coming from abstract art, this form of art shows you many points of view at the same time. This form of art is meant to show the energy that the subject may be showing but it’s only possible to effectively show that by showing all of it.

Modern Art

Art changes every second of every day and there are so many different kinds of art. Our favorite is Modern Art .

Modern Art encompasses so many artistic works as early as 1800s to the 1970s, which denotes the style of the era. Modern Art has become a form of expression for the artists on how they see the world. Modern Art is usually associated with past traditions that hadn’t been used and are now due to experimentation.

Modern Artists play around with different ways and fresh ideas about nature and new resources that use the functions of the art. Like other art works as Contemporary and Postmodern Art these are very different then what you’ll see in an Modern Art museum.

Modern Art started with the art works of Paul Cezanne, George Seurat and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec all of which were very important to the start of of the modern art culture. As time went on and moving forward into the early 20th century, in came the artists  Vincent van Gogh, Maurice de Vlaminck – taking Paris by storm with their extreme colors and wonderful landscapes and the finger paintings that were called “Fauvism”.

Art work like “The Blooming Plum tree”, Courtesan, Portrait of Pere Tanguy by Vincent van Gogh are revolutionary to the world and what it stands for today to see the amazing pieces of the work then and now.

There are some pieces of art where if you stand back you will be mesmerized by its color, strokes, and even its amazing detail in the art. As time goes by and years pass, the art changes and then you notice a difference in the type of people now paying attention to different types of art, which is a great thing. Modern Art is important to keep around with out it there would be a lot of history missing today because Modern Art is history and every piece is tells a story.
