In this Gallery of Movement of The Arts you will discover many different types of arts that depict movement in paintings, sculptures, and drawings. The artwork is from the 1800's to 2005 from Italian to Korean Artists. This is movement of arts through time. I am fascinated in the realism of art and wanted to create a Gallery to showcase nothing but the emotional (matters of the heart), creative, and mental movement.
