` Modern Art Paintings PAINTING: Painting is the practice of applying paint color or other medium to a solid surface. The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but also knives sponges and airbrushes can be used. MODERN ART: Prior to the 19th century artists were most often commissioned to make artwork by wealthy patrons or institutions like the church. Much of this art depicted religious or mythological scenes that told stories and were intended to instruct the viewer. During the 19th century many artists started to make art about people places or ideas that interested them and of which they had direct experience. With the publication of psychologist Sigmund Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams 1899 and the popularization of the idea of a subconscious mind many artists began exploring dreams symbolism and personal iconography as avenues for the depiction of their subjective experiences.

` MODERN ART PAINTING: Modern art includes artistic work produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency away from the narrative which was characteristic for the traditional arts toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. More recent artistic production is often called contemporary art or postmodern art. SYNOPSIS: Modern art represents an evolving set of ideas among a number of painters sculptors writers and performers who - both individually and collectively - sought new approaches to art making. Although modern art began in retrospect around 1850 with the arrival of Realism approaches and styles of art were defined and redefined throughout the twentieth century. Practitioners of each new style were determined to develop a visual language that was both original and representative of the times. Figure 2. Best Moder Art Source: Modern Art Painting

` MOST IMPORTANT ART: Impression Sunrise 1873 Artist: Claude Monet In this seminal work of modern art Monets loose handling of paint and his focus on light and atmosphere within the landscape scene are all key characteristics of Impressionism which is widely considered the first fully modern movement. Monets use of abstraction evokes what the artist sensed or experienced while painting the scene which was a highly unusual approach for a painter to adopt at the time. The title of the work Impression Sunrise not only provided critics with the name that the movement would later receive but also conveys the transitory fleeting and subjective nature of the painting. It is Monets visual impression of what he observed during that sunrise. Figure 3: Impression Sunrise Source: The Art Story

` The Persistence of Memory 1931 Artist: Salvador Dalí Figure 4: The Persistence of Memory Source: The Art Story Artwork description Analysis: This iconic Surrealist painting naturalistically depicts an otherworldly landscape where time is a series of melting watches surrounded by swarming ants that hint at decay an organic process which held great fascination for Dali. He sought to portray "images of concrete irrationality" bringing haunting dreamscapes like this allegorically empty space where time has no power out of the subconscious mind and onto the canvas. Dalis celebrated and vivid imagination his fascination with dream imagery and metaphor and his

Full Fathom Five 1947 Artist: Jackson Pollock Figure 5: Full Fathom Five Source: The Art Story Artwork description Analysis: Full Fathom Five was among the first drip paintings Pollock completed and revolutionized painting. Its intricate surface is clotted with an assortment of detritus from cigarette butts to coins and even a key. While the top-most layers were created by pouring lines of black and silver house paint from the can or dripping with a stick onto a canvas laid on the floor the earlier layers were applied with a brush and palette knife which created an angular counterpoint to the dripped weaving lines. Through the development of the drip style of painting and his delicate dance executed in the process of creating the work Pollock helped define the idea of Action Painting. With his drip paintings Pollock - one of the most famous Abstract Expressionists - discovered a new abstract visual language for his unconscious that moved beyond the

` Freudian symbolism of the Surrealists. He broke up the rigid shallow space of Cubist pictures replacing it with a dense web of lines and forms like an unfathomable galaxy of stars. In some respects this work evokes both Impressionism and Surrealism in the loose gestural application of the paint and the unconscious nature of the expression laid down on the canvas. One Ton Prop House of Cards 1969 Artist: Richard Serra Artwork description Analysis: One Ton Prop presages Serras mature works where gravity weight counterforce sinuous movement and other physical and visual properties are embodied by steel. This sculpture consisting of four rolled sheets of lead propped on each other is less a visual exercise for the viewer and more of an intellectual one obliging one to contemplate the physical properties that allow the piece to remain upright rather than collapse. The unprecedented complexity of such a work is fairly typical of post-minimal sculpture which relied upon a variety of visual sources and theories for inspiration. While One Ton Prop embodies certain principles of Minimalism Conceptualism and even Dada it is generally referred to as Process art because the process of its construction is Figure 6: One Ton Prop Source: The Art Story
