9 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.

10 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.”
