SHOWFLIPPER Presents Modern Art: Eras and Characteristics

Slide 2

Introduction The Modern Art Movement started in the 1900 and is still going strong. The Modern Art Movement has five different and distinct eras of influences.

Slide 3

Cubism Showing all views of an object at the same time with lots of squared and triangle shapes. This artmovement lasted from 1907 to 1922. Two events marked the beginning of Cubism. The first was Picasso returning to Paris from his home in Catalonia with his painting Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907). In its radical distortion of the figures, its rendering of volumes as fragmented planes, and its subdued palette, this work predicted some of the key characteristics of later Cubism.

Slide 4

Cubism Secondly, Braque made a series of landscape paintings in the summer of 1908, in which trees and mountains were rendered as shaded cubes and pyramids, resembling architectural forms. It was this series that led French art critic Louis Vauxcelles to describe them as “Bizarreries Cubiques" thus giving the movement its name.

Slide 5

Surrealism Paid attention to dreams and fantasies! Surrealism lasted from 1922 to late 1966. It was a twentieth century avant-garde art movement.

Slide 6

Surrealism This movement in art originated in the nihilistic (rejection of) ideas of the Dadaist and French literary figures, especially those of its founder, French writer André Breton (1896-1966). At first a Dadaist, he wrote three manifestos about Surrealism — in 1924, 1930, and 1934, and opened a studio for "surrealist research."

Slide 7

Abstract Expressionism Unconventional types of paints and ways to apply paints! This art movement lasted from 1943 to 1965.   

Slide 8

Abstract Expressionism Almost all of painters who later became abstract painters in the late 1930's & 1940's in New York were stamped by the experience of the great depression. It influenced them to make art based on their personal experience.

Slide 9

Pop Art Reaction to abstraction that focused on commercial images and popular culture. This art movement lasted from the 1950's to the 1970's. In London in 1952 a group of artists calling themselves the independant group began meeting regularly to discuss topics such as mass culture's place in the arts.  The actual term "Pop-Art" has many possible origins.

Slide 10

Pop Art The first use of the term has been attributed to both Lawrence Alloway and Alison & Peter SMithson. The first artwork to incorporate the word "Pop" is said to have been produced by Paolozzi's collage "I was a rich man's plaything" (1947). The image contained cut-up images of a girl, coke-cola logo, cherry pie, World War II fighter plane, & a man holding a pistol out which bursts the word "Pop" in a puffy white cloud. 

Slide 11

Contemporary Art Art that is increasingly based on electronic media. This art movement started in 1945 Post WWII and continues in the present. Embodies the idea of always moving forward and constantly changing. Great works ranging from the late 19th century VanGogh, Gaugin, and Monet's to works produced today (i.e. sculptures, media and multi-media art .
