History Of Figurative Art

Founded in 1979, Modernism has since presented more than 450 exhibitions, both historical and contemporary, in media ranging from painting to photography, sculpture to performance, by an international roster of artists. Art Nouveau is an international style of art, architecture and applied art, especially the decorative arts, known in different languages by different names: Jugendstil in German, Stile Liberty in Italian, Modernisme in Catalan, etc. In English it is also known as the Modern Style (not to be confused with Modernism and Modern architecture). The style was most popular between 1890 and 1910. It was a reaction against the academic art, eclecticism and historicism of 19th century architecture and decoration. It was often inspired by natural forms such as the sinuous curves of plants and flowers. Other characteristics of Art Nouveau were a sense of dynamism and movement, often given by asymmetry or “whiplash” curves, and the use of modern materials, particularly iron, glass, ceramics and later concrete, to create unusual forms and larger open spaces. One major objective of Art Nouveau was to break down the traditional distinction between fine arts (especially painting and sculpture) and applied arts. It was most widely used in interior design, graphic arts, furniture, glass art, textiles, ceramics, jewelry and metal work. The style responded to leading 19-century theoreticians, such as French architect Eugène-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879) and British art critic John Ruskin (1819-1900). In Britain, it was influenced by William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement. German architects and designers sought a spiritually uplifting Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art”) that would unify the architecture, furnishings, and art in the interior in a common style, to uplift and inspire the residents. The first Art Nouveau houses and interior decoration appeared in Brussels in the 1890s, in the architecture and interior design of houses designed by Paul Hankar, Henry Van de Velde, and especially Victor Horta, whose Hôtel Tassel was completed in 1893. It moved quickly to Paris, where it was adapted by Hector Guimard, who saw Horta’s work in Brussels and applied the style for the entrances of the new Paris Metro. It reached its peak at the 1900 Paris International Exposition, which introduced the Art Nouveau work of artists such as Louis Tiffany. It appeared in graphic arts in the posters of Alphonse Mucha, and the glassware of René Lalique and Émile Gallé. From Belgium and France, it spread to the rest of Europe, taking on different names and characteristics in each country (see Naming section below). It often appeared not only in capitals, but also in rapidly growing cities that wanted to establish artistic identities (Turin and Palermo in Italy; Glasgow in Scotland; Munich and Darmstadt in Germany), as well as in centres of independence movements (Helsinki in Finland, then part of the Russian Empire; Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain). By 1910, Art Nouveau’s influence had faded. It was replaced as the dominant European architectural and decorative style first by Art Deco and then by Modernism. Then it was reborn in the 1960’s in America.

The purpose of this study was to investigate parents’ perceived training needs and attitudes toward the use of music with their children who have developmental delays. Parent participants were recruited through an early intervention organization—Early Steps—in the Southeastern region of the US. Participants’ children were all under three years of age and were eligible to receive early intervention services. Using music performance in musical therapy is a great technique for building self-esteem. With the therapist there to support them through the performance, patients have a chance to build their self-confidence. and a well-developed art vocabulary is important to art appreciation. These aspects of the program are best assessed through written assessment and oral presentation; teachers should not hesitate to use these methods merely because they are not traditionally considered to be art evaluation methods. Studio Projects With each module a number of projects are suggested. This studio experience should be used to determine what concepts and skills have been learned from the immediate experiences leading up to it. Prior learning experiences should also be visible in these. A balance must be struck between process and product in these projects. Tests Written tests, quizzes, and recognition tests are appropriate for many of the concepts described in this guide.

An exhibition of artwork created by artists working at North Fourth Art Center responding to the theme of the fantastic and the surreal.

In the first part of our new video series on the Abstract Expressionists, the RA’s Artistic Director Tim Marlow gives a quick introduction to the work of Mark Rothko. Hofmann grew up in Munich. As a gymnasium student, he excelled in music, science, and mathematics. At sixteen, as an assistant to the director of public works in Bavaria, his engineering skills became apparent. He invented a radar device for ships, a sensitized light bulb, and a portable freezer unit for use by military forces.(3) With a thousand marks as a gift from his proud father, Hofmann enrolled in art school. Soon he had encountered Impressionism, and discovered the Secession Gallery in Munich. The support of a patron allowed him to go to Paris. He attended evening classes at the Colarossi Academy and at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Hofmann became close friends with Jules Pascin and Robert Delaunay, whose theories on color seeded Hofmann’s own ideas about color and form. At this time, Hofmann was painting Cubist still lifes, landscapes, and figurative pieces, and his work was included in group exhibitions at the New Secession Gallery in 1908 and 1909.
