Vocabulary
  • Chiaroscuro (Italian for lightdark) is defined as
    a bold contrast between light and dark.
  • Impressionism was a 19th century art movement
    that began as a loose association of Paris-based
    artists who began publicly exhibiting their art
    in the 1860s. The name of the movement is derived
    from Claude Monet's Impression, Sunrise
    (Impression, soleil levant).
  • Cubism is a more modern art movement in which
    forms are abstracted by using an analytical
    approach to the object and painting the basic
    geometric solid of the subject.

Vocabulary
  • Abstract Expressionism is a style of painting in
    which the painter shows his personality through
    spontaneity.  Most abstract expressionist art is
    not a painting of an object or image, but instead
    a study in color and brush stroke. 
  • Fauvism is a short-lived painting style in early
    20th century France, which featured bold,
    clashing, arbitrary colors - colors unrelated to
    the appearance of forms in the natural world.
    Henri Matisse was its best-known practitioner.
    The word fauve means wild beast.
