An Avalanche in the Alps, Phillip James De Loutherbourg, 1803, From the collection of: Tate Britain
An Avalanche In The Alps 1803 Phillip James De Loutherbourg Romanticism gives importance to the meaning of painting rather than form and shape. Romanticism involves sunsets, cliffs, owls, death's heads and something like that. I think it evokes a bit gothic style. ın this painting viewers can see cliffs and rockies in Alps together with three men. Because of Romanticism symbolizes free frames of minds, this view shows that humans minds know no limits as mountains.
The Scream, Edvard Munch, 1910, From the collection of: The Munch Museum, Oslo
The Scream 1910 Munch, Edvard, 1863-1944 Expressionism interested in distorted lines, exaggerative shapes and colors to reflect inner worlds of artists. In this painting there is a man in front and he seems as if he is get in trouble with something and in the background viewers can see landscape. The sky of this landscape is in the color of red. Red associated with both love and death because it is color of the blood. Probably, the artist feels himself a bit tired and sick therefore all nature is meaningfull and complicated like the artist himself.
My nurse and I, Frida Kahlo, 1937, From the collection of: Museo Dolores Olmedo
My Nurse And I 1937 Kahlo, Frida, 1907-1954 Surrealism reflects subconsicous of people or artist. It expresses thoughts and feelings that comes from subconscious. Mind and logic is worthless in this movement because the important thing is instincts in people's lives. According to this rule, a painting has to involve both good and bad sides together such as good deeds and sins/ morality and rascality. In this painting we see Kahlo reduced to the size of an infant and suckled by a dark-skinned Madonna with a Teotihuacan mask for a face.
Spring Landscape, Charles-François Daubigny, 1862, From the collection of: Alte Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Spring Landscape 1862 Daubigny, Charles-François, 1817-1878 Realism is a reaction to both classicism and romanticism. The aim of realism is to treat a subject that come from middle class and may be lower class of society. Realism wants to examine daily lives of people and also wants to show relationship between nature and people. As it is in this painting a couple walks through the somewhere like forest. They are not upper classes and they are not artificial and expensive places. They are ordinary people and prefer nature to live their love and maybe to talk about themselves

The Bedroom 1889 Gogh, Vincent van 1853-1890 Post Impressionism is a reaction to impressionism. In this movement artists try to reflect staffs or their feeling using bright colors. In this painting can strain eyes because of its colors, but all these bright colors are in harmony. Van Gogh found an expression of calmess, of great peace.
The Magdalen with the Smoking Flame, circa, From the collection of: Los Angeles County Museum of Art
The Magdalen With The Smoking Flame Circa La Tour, Georges du Mesnil de, 1593-1652 Baroque is an anti-renaissance movement. It contributes the painting by reaching it relasim and adding hopelessness, disappointment, melodrama and lack of confident on the contrary to peace and quitness of renaissance. All figures in the painting of Baroque reflect their hopelessness and moreover elements have sharp meanings in these views. For instance in this table woman just sits and looks at a candle holding a death's head in her hand. The candle blows black smokes and may be it refers her death lover as associated with death's head.
The Open Window, Juan Gris, 1921, From the collection of: Museo Reina Sofia
The Open Window 1921 Gris, Juan, 1887-1927 Cubism gives importance to tell realit as it itself. Cubist artists use some metarials from the nature in their tables such as peace of sheets, newspapers, matchsticks. They prefer to use these materials both to show they are not far from the reality and to tell the painting is not something extraordinary. In other words people can use some staff from the nature to compose their paintings. In this table, it is possible to observe an open window and a table in front of it. The table is not visible because of staffs on it. A bottle, a violin and some sheets may be that is written notes to play violin. On the other hand the art of cubism does not involve staff with their whole. For instance, there is a head of bottle, the body of violin in this painting as by force of cubism.
Young Woman at Her Toilette, Giovanni Bellini, 1515, From the collection of: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna (Museum of Fine Arts) | First Floor | Picture Gallery, Cabinet 2 Young Woman At Her Toilette 1515Details Giovanni Bellini During the High Renaissance, artists no longer pondered the art of antiquity. They now had the tools, technology, training and confidence to go their own way. The main characteristic of High Renaissance painting are harmony and balance in construction. The reason why I choose this painting is, it is really far from the concept of woman in cultures. She is almost naked and she is in her toilette, she is not cleaning the house. or not serving on the contrary to customary. Moreover, one of the most important principles in High Renaissance is naturalism and I think this painting is enough to show its viewers naturalism in painting.
Rudolf II of Habsburg as Vertumnus, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, 1590, From the collection of: Skokloster Castle
Rudolf II Of Habsburg As Vertumnus 1590 Arcimboldi, Giuseppe, 1527?-1593 The movement of mannerism emerged from the later years of the Italian High Renaissance. Everything has lost its meaning in Mannerism, and everything is in motion. Even though it is a bit hard to understand what the painting is exactly about, painters achieves to do miracles. This movement is a kind of transition from classism to baroque. In this view as everybody can see, the painter uses different kinds of fruits, vegetables and plants to create his painting. Mixture of all these three elements create an excellent portrait of a man.
The birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli, 1483 - 1485, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
The Birth Of Venus (1483 - 1485) Botticelli, Sandro, 1444 or 5-1510 Neoclassicism comes into existence as a reaction to Baroque. Neoclassicism believes that historical/mythical symbols or figures of the antique world have to revitalize again. Venüs is symbol of love and *** in Rome myth and she famous with her beauty. This painting is a indicator of admiration of Neoclassicism to antique world.
The Loing's Canal, Alfred Sisley, 1892, From the collection of: Musée d’Orsay, Paris
The Loing's Canal 1892 Sisley, Alfred, 1839-1899 Impressionism tries to create a connection between nature and people and it reflects nature may be as itself or it in a thing. The important thing is in Impressionism to reflect nature according to people's impression. Artists paints their table considering how they feel themselves in this nature. In my painting the artist prefers to show Canal especially in the seson of fall because the artist finds the most impressive time of the Canal in the fall. May be this view is not real but this view reflects the impressions and feeling of artist when he observe the Canal.
Uncle Sam 1981 Warhol, Andy, 1928-1987 In Pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, and/or combined with unrelated material. The concept of pop art refers not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it. It is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism. Pop art is aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. It is also associated with the artists' use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques.
