Representational Art The style of art most people regard as “real art”. The subject looks like it appears in real life. Began during the Renaissance in Europe.
Is it Representational? Objects are in proportion. Perspective. Value to show form. Realistic color choices.
Representational Art Pierre-Auguste Renoir Two Sisters (on the Terrace)
Abstract It is about painting the essence of a subject rather than the detail. It keeps an echo of what it is that prompted the idea. (Inspiration is from reality) Abstraction can also happen when the artist chooses to view the subjects in a non-traditional manner.
Is it Abstract? Simplify shapes (More geometric). Avoid detail. Objects can be out-of-proportion. Flatten space by not using perspective.
Abstract Art Renee Magritte The Treachery of Images
Non-Objective Doesn’t try to look like anything from the “real world”. The point of the painting is the colors used, the textures in the artwork, the materials used to create it.
Is it Non-Objective? Show something that can’t normally be seen (like a sound or a feeling). Focus on the elements of art only – line, shape, color, texture, etc. Can also be a pattern or design.
Activity Objective: Create a presentation that choose 6 works of Art and explain which type of art they are. Go to this website: Google Art Project. Browse through the museums that are on the website.Google Art Project Choose 2 works of art for each type: Representational, Abstract, and Non- objective. Include a picture of the artwork and tell the title of the artwork, artist, and date it was created. (Also, include more information about the artwork!) Explain, using the criteria we have discussed for each type of art, why you think it is Representational, Abstract, or Non-Objective. You will use to create your presentation: 7 th & 8 th Grade: PowerPoint. 6 th Grade: Tackk. Upload your file, or hyperlink, to Edmodo in the assignment labeled “3 Types of Art.”
Guernica Pablo Picasso 1937 Museo Renia Sofia, Spain Abstract: This painting is abstract because we can recognize the subject matter as people and animals, but they do not look realistic. Also, the color choices are not realistic.
