A Look At The Art Movement Of Today
A defining moment of art is an art movement. An art movement is a general trend or current in art without a particular centralized, central theme, or, more importantly, over a period of time, with a single artist during a given time frame, or even, with the entirety of the art movement defined over a considerable period of time. It may be noted that there are a few art movements in the world today, the most significant one of which happens to be called abstract art. This type of art is not tied to any theme or focus and exists to be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere. However, abstract art is still defined as a part of the larger artistic movement that has been occurring for decades now, called art movement. No matter how you want to classify this art form, it is certain that it exists, and it is something that can be appreciated by anyone who walks into a room.
The art movement in question can be split into three distinct eras or styles, all of which had strong roots and were further developed and expanded upon during the late years of the nineteenth century. These were Impressionism, Expressionism, and Art Nouveau. All three had strong critiques and individual artists who explored the ramifications of new mediums such as painting, photography, and sculpture. However, when it comes to understanding the evolution of an art movement, it should be noted that there were artists who only concentrated on one, or perhaps two of these mediums, and ended up greatly influencing others who only added to the evolving process.
Impressionism, or more specifically Cubism, was a style of painting and was further developed and refined by artists like Gustave Caillebotte, Paul Gauguin, and Albert Bierstadt. Impressionism showcased the use of light in a wide range of colors and employed the medium of paint to give an impression of depth and weight to the objects. It also highlighted the use of brush strokes, and the ability to produce an illusion of dimension. It is thought that Caillebotte actually painted impressionism onto canvases, and when he did so, this marked the first major break with the formalism of the art movement. However, Cubism begat more styles and fashions from Caillebotte through to the present day, which include cubism, Fauvism, and Pop.
Expressionism, as it was popularly called, was the most innovative and most widely accepted art movement in the twentieth century. This was created by artists like Picasso, Braque & Gris, and Catalani. It is often associated with modern art movements and includes a bold focus on form, texture, and color. Artists who have worked extensively within the expressionist camp include Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Kasowitz.
Expressionism, like Cubism, had strong critiques and debates. These debates spanned different political, social, and aesthetic perspectives, which helped fuel the fire for many artists to push the envelope even further. The main debate that emerged with Expressionism was over the value of the aesthetic and the content of the work. The works of the artists were often controversial and addressed serious artistic themes like politics, war, and social injustice. Some artists believed that expressionism was a form of art, and it was an attempt to do something unique by focusing on certain ideals. Some of these ideals included beauty, power, and a message of hope.
Pop art, as it is popularly called, was born out of the movement. This movement sparked off significant changes in the way that art is perceived. In the early part of the 20th century, pop culture art was about incorporating popular characters into everyday objects, which is why collectible items like figurines and porcelain dolls came about. Nowadays, pop culture still influences the type of work that is done in the 21st century. With new movies, music, and television shows, the world of art has once again undergone profound change, and new trends are continuously being developed.
