Arts have been around for thousands of years and their diversity and rich history is a diverse collection of cultures, artists, and places. They were a key part of human civilization, particularly the arts of pottery and architecture. As they became more refined over time, these arts developed to the point where they became more abstract and less specific to one culture or region. However, the idea of the art form, as an extension of the creativity of the individual, is timeless and meaningful today.
As early as 3000 BC in Greece, sculptors began developing art through the first abstract expressionism. From this point forward, all artists were beginning to experiment with new ways of creating the ‘perfect work of art.’ The most famous example of abstract art was Impressionism, which was popular in European art galleries from the late 1800s to the 1930s. Impressionists and Abstract Expressionists, as they became known, had a strong impact on other artists, and by the turn of the century, artists throughout the world were using several different styles to express their personal style. Some of their most notable works included Renoir’s ‘Nights at the Seashore’, Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’, and Georges Braque ‘Uneeda’.
Impressionism was only a small part of the art created by the Impressionists, but was still very influential. Renoir continued to experiment and explore the abstract expressionist movement and would return to it many times over the years to create some of his most beautiful pieces.
Later on in the century, Impressionists became one of the first movements of modern art to develop an aesthetic perspective and make a concerted effort to challenge the formalism of traditional art. This movement, known as Expressionism, was also very influential and it was often considered one of the precursors to modern art. Although it was not as popular as earlier movements, Expressionism was one of the most influential ones during the late 1890s. and its influence was felt in many of the works of artists who were coming out of the movement. Examples of these artists were Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Max Ernst, Hans Bellmer and Jasper Johns.
It was during this time that abstract expressionism also became a popular movement. The most well-known art of this period was the painting of Francis Bacon. and Paul Gauguin. These two artists were very much involved with the movement and created many of their best works after this time. The movement was popularized and expanded throughout Europe and America, but it was also popularized in Japan. Japanese artists were influenced heavily by their European counterparts.
American art also had a major influence during this time, especially in the realm of oil painting, which was very influential. During this time, artists such as Rembrandt and Monet had already established themselves as major painters and were very influential in the American movement.
The popularity of American art declined in the twentieth century, but their popularity has recently seen a resurgence in the last ten years or so. Many artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein are making some of the most exciting paintings of recent years. The reason for this is that the styles that they are painting are very popular and there are a lot of people interested in them. As long as there are people interested in contemporary art, we will see more changes in the future.
