Neoclassical Art
  • Neoclassical Art is a severe, unemotional form of
    art harkening back to the style of ancient Greece
    and Rome.
  • Its rigidity was a reaction to the overbred
    Rococo style and the emotional Baroque style.
  • The rise of Neoclassical Art was part of a
    general revival of classical thought, which was
    of some importance in the American and French
    revolutions.

Romanticism
  • Romanticism can be seen as a rejection of the
    precepts of order, calm, harmony, balance,
    idealization, and rationality that typified late
    18th-century Neoclassicism.
  • It was also to some extent a reaction against the
    Enlightenment and against 18th-century
    rationalism and physical materialism in general.
  • Romanticism emphasized the individual, the
    subjective, the irrational, the imaginative, the
    personal, the spontaneous, the emotional, the
    visionary, and the transcendental.

Impressionism
  • The impressionist style of painting is
    characterized chiefly by concentration on the
    general impression produced by a scene or object
    and the use of unmixed primary colors and small
    strokes to simulate actual reflected light.
  • The most conspicuous characteristic of
    Impressionism was an attempt to accurately and
    objectively record visual reality in terms of
    transient effects of light and color.

Pointillism
  • Pointillism was a form of art that created
    pictures by combining a series of small dots.
  • Seurat was one of the major artists of this
    school of painting.
  • Seurat rejected the soft, irregular brushstrokes
    of impressionism in favor of pointillism, a
    technique he developed whereby solid forms are
    constructed by applying small, close-packed dots
    of unmixed color to a white background.

Expressionism
  • Expressionism is a style of art in which the
    intention is not to reproduce a subject
    accurately, but instead to portray it in such a
    way as to express the inner state of the artist.
  • Many expressionist artists reflected their
    disillusion with modern society, especially in
    light of the two world wars.

    analyzed, and reassembled in an abstracted form
  • Cubists treat nature in terms of the cylinder,
    the sphere and the cone.

    recognize.
