23 Rococo Art The Rococo style in painting is decorative and non-functional, like the declining aristocracy it represented. Subjects are painted with wispy brushstrokes & the colors used often included luscious golds and reds. Its subject matter frequently dealt with the leisurely pastimes of the aristocracy and risqué love themes such as sensual intimacy, love, frivolity, & playful intrigue. Rococo art often looks fuzzy. (see examples)

30 Neoclassical Art Neoclassical Art is a severe, unemotional form of art harkening back to the style of ancient Greece and Rome. Its rigidity was a reaction to the overbred Rococo style and the emotional Baroque style. The rise of Neoclassical Art was part of a general revival of classical thought, which was of some importance in the American and French revolutions.

35 Romanticism Romanticism can be seen as a rejection of the precepts of order, calm, harmony, balance, idealization, and rationality that typified late 18th-century Neoclassicism. It was also to some extent a reaction against the Enlightenment and against 18th-century rationalism and physical materialism in general. Romanticism emphasized the individual, the subjective, the irrational, the imaginative, the personal, the spontaneous, the emotional, the visionary, and the transcendental.

42 Impressionism The impressionist style of painting is characterized chiefly by concentration on the general impression produced by a scene or object and the use of unmixed primary colors and small strokes to simulate actual reflected light. The most conspicuous characteristic of Impressionism was an attempt to accurately and objectively record visual reality in terms of transient effects of light and color.

46 Pointillism Pointillism was a form of art that created pictures by combining a series of small dots. Seurat was one of the major artists of this school of painting. Seurat rejected the soft, irregular brushstrokes of impressionism in favor of pointillism, a technique he developed whereby solid forms are constructed by applying small, close-packed dots of unmixed color to a white background.

49 Expressionism Expressionism is a style of art in which the intention is not to reproduce a subject accurately, but instead to portray it in such a way as to express the inner state of the artist. Many expressionist artists reflected their disillusion with modern society, especially in light of the two world wars.

52 Cubism In Cubism the subject matter is broken up, analyzed, and reassembled in an abstracted form Cubists treat nature in terms of the cylinder, the sphere and the cone. Subjects in Cubists paintings are often hard to recognize.
