2 1. Francis Bacon was born in 1909 in Dublin. Francis is a “English painter of Irish birth”. The style of work that Francis Bacon used was Expressionist art. He died in 1992 in Madrid. 2. Francis Bacon fits into this style of painting because he liked the difficulty and he liked to paint ageless.

3 3. We think that Francis Bacon liked to use a lot of expression in his art. After looking at some of his paintings it looks as though, he mostly used dark colors in his paintings and some times lighter colors over dark backgrounds.

5 1. Willem De Kooning was born April 24 th, 1904. At one point Willem was a house time painter. Later he became a teacher. Around 1928 he started to paint still life. Kooning married in 1943 to Elaine Marie Fried. Willem De kooning died March 19 th, 1997.

6 2. Willem De Kooning started to use “biomorphic shapes and simple geometric compositions”. That’s when he started to look into abstract art. 3. We think he was trying to convey that he liked to use bright colors most of the time and he liked to use different shapes and sizes.

11 1. Franz Kline was born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania in 1910. When Franz was 7 years old he’s father committed suicide. A few years after Kline’s father died, his mother remarried. Franz left his home in 1931 and went to Boston.

12 2. Franz Kline fits into abstract art because of the different shapes and sizes that he uses in his paintings. 3. We think that when he did his paintings he tried to convey that he liked to do a lot of his art in black and white.

15 1. Mark Rothko was born as Marcus Rothkowitz in Dvinsk. Rothko and his family were Jews. When he was ten years old, Rothko,his mother and his sister went to America to join his father and his brothers. He studied the 'Liberal Arts' at Yale, from 1921to 1923 In 1925, he moved to New York, with the Art Students League, under Max Weber. He came to teach at the Center Academy of the Brooklyn Jewish Center from 1929 to 1952, and put on his first one-man exhibition at the Portland Art Museum in 1933.

16 2. Abstract Art is actually a very colourful style of art. Most of Mark Rothko’s paintings are just blocks of colours. That I think that would be why he fits into this style of art.

17 3. We really don’t know what the artist was trying to say through his paintings. Most of his paintings were really plain. We even had a hard time choosing some of his paintings for the other slides we did.

18 Subway Entrance  This painting is called “Subway Entrance”. It was painted in 1938. It is an “oil on canvas” painting. Slow Swirl at the Edge of the sea This painting is called “Slow Swirl at the Edge of the Sea”. It was painted in 1944. It is an oil on canvas painting. 

20 1. Jackson Pollock was a major artist in the movement of abstract expressionism. He in was born on January 28, 1912 and died on August 11, 1956. He was the youngest of five children and was American. Around the 1930’s he worked in the “manner of the Regionalists.” His life was partly affected and changed by Mexican muralist painters and certain qualities of Surrealism. From 1938 to 1942 he also worked but this time it was for the “Federal Art Project.” Quote by Pollock (said in 1947): “On the floor I am more at ease, I feel nearer, more a part of the painting, since this way I can walk around in it, work from the four sides and be literally `in' the painting.”

21 2. Jackson Pollock’s movement fits into the abstract expressionism mainly because he is an abstract artist. As you can see in the paintings on the left he expresses many colours and feelings. You never know maybe he was very happy or even angry while painting this. I found that art movements are almost “exclusively Western art phenomenon's.” This art movement started near the 1940’s in New York and carried on in America a decade later.

22 3. As you’ll see in the next slide, Jackson Pollock is a painter who loves colours. Though, in some of his many paintings there is a touch of black. His people figures are mostly black as well. We think that the colourful paintings are the nicest ones. They show so much feeling and impression in them. What do you like the best?!

23 This painting is called Blue Holes and was painted in 1952. It was painted with glass on a canvas. This painting is called “Lavender Mist” and was painted in 1950. This painting was made in 1947 and is called “Full Fathom Five.” It is and oil on canvas painting with nails, tacks, buttons, coins, cigarettes, etc.
