Pablo Picasso was born on October 25, 1881 in the city of Malaga, Spain.
Died in 1973 and left an extraordinary legacy of art. He managed to transform
the whole face of art and became one of the most influential artist in history.
Cubism the art movement that created by Pablo Picasso it is one of
the most influential art style in the early 20th century between 1908-1914.
Cubism is like standing at certain points on a mountain and looking around. If
you go higher, things will look different and if you go lower again things will
be different. Its a point of view. Cubism was a revolution style of modern art,
developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. The cubists challenge
conventional forms to representation, such as perspective which had been the
rule since the renaissance. In this art movement artist have to breaking
figures and objects down into distinct planes or areas the artist point is to
show the different viewpoints at the same time and within the same space. They
also have to emphasized the two dimensions of the canvas instead of creating
the illusion of the depth. Les demoiselles one of his most important
painting that he made in 1907 in Paris. The title translates to the young
ladies of Avignon which refers to a street that’s not in France but is in
Barcelona. The idea of rendering a woman who is available to the male viewer.
Like some old painting like Manet or Olympia. Many artists see this as the
foundation on which cubism is built so it’s this radical break that points to
the future and it’s a radical break with these conventions of representation
that had for so long been accepted in the west about how you make a body in
space, how you create space.
What is surrealism? Surrealism is a
cultural movement its pictured as something that we don’t usually expect to see
in real life. Surrealism developed out of Dadaism activities during world war
one. Dadaism movement is basically an artistic revolution that began in the
early 20th century. Dadaism was considered as an anti-art protest and in
general life it has no meaning or purpose or logic. For surrealism on the other
hand, life has meaning, and it is more peaceful. The start of surrealism
Andre Breton started surrealism in 1924 with his ‘Manifesto du surrealism’
which was published and later on inspired others and persuaded to also join
surrealism. Andre Breton met a writer called Jacques who wrote very strange and
unnatural stories. Andre was very inspired by this writer and his views. Then
he joined the Dadaism activities and they began writing and publishing their
thoughts which make people join them. About Andre Breton born in 19
February 1896 and died in 28 September 1966. Andre was born in Tinchebray in
France and was studying medicine at first but then he realized that his true
interest lies within poetry. Andre Breton was a French poet and critic the
starter of surrealism and was the editor of the magazine ” La Revolution
Surrealism”. In his publication “The Magnetic Fields” he showed
the principle of automatic writing and he published the surrealist manifesto in
1924. Breton was also dedicated collector of art.
Impressionism art movement. Impressionism
can be considered the first distinctly modern movement in painting. In turning
away from the fine finish and detail to which most artists of their day aspired
the impressionists aimed to capture the momentary sensory effect of a scene –
the impressionism objects made on the eye in a fleeting instant. To achieve
this effect many impressionist artist moved from the studio to the streets and
countryside painting en plain air. One of the founders of Impressionism is a
talented painter Claude Monet. Claude Monet born in November 14 ,1840 in
Paris and died in December 5 ,1926. He was the founder of French impressionist
painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s
philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature especially as applied
to plain-air landscapes painting. One of his painting Death of Camille in 1876
he draw this painting for his wife Camille after she died because of illness.

have a very different style and unique. Every movement was the best in the time
was found and it makes many amazing and genies artist and painters to join or
to paint in this movement.
