Mannerism More subjective and emotional. Mannerism reflects the troubled time of the reformation vs. Catholic counter reformation Abandonment of perspective, or very elongated exaggerated limbs, dark shadows. El Greco, Titian, late Michelangelo.
Baroque More realistic than mannerism. Grand, elaborate, formal, and emotional. Tied to grandeur of the church or monarchs. Rubens, Velazquez, Bach, Handel, Opera, Milton, late Shakespeare, Cervantes.
Romanticism Objections to the Enlightenment’s emphasis on reason, form, and the classics. Themes of nature, simple life. Gothic images or exotic images. Music: ballads, folk songs Writers: Keats, Shelley, Lord Byron.
Realism Romanticism considered too sentimental. Later 1800s. Art intended to push for social reform– realistic depiction of life and its problems. Gustave, Courbet, Daumier, Millet. Literature: Balzac, Flaubert, Dickens.
Post-Impressionism Turning away from impressionism because it lacked form and discipline. This movement was only united in rejecting impressionism. Expressed chaos and complexity of the machine age. Importance of line. Beginnings of the modern art movement. Cezanne, Seurat, Gaugin, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Latrec.
Surrealism Psychological paintings, sometimes very realistic, that reveal the inner mind. Dali, Klee, Miro, Chagall. Again, reflection of Freudian concepts and the scars that World War I and II have on the world psyche.
