1700-1900 The Industrial Revolution Artwork

I looked up artwork from the times between 1700 and 1900 because that was the basic time period of the Industrial Revolution. Some things happened a little bit before and a little bit after those years but 1700 and 1900 were the main outlining years. One thing that I learned about the artwork from the time period of the Industrial Revolution is that it included a lot of still life, realism, and basic photography since they had just come out with cameras. I really like how almost all of the artwork from the time period is incredibly simple but still more beautiful than most of the complicated pieces that came out before and after the Industrial Revolution. Vincent van Gogh also came out with his artwork during this time and one thing I really enjoy about his art is the way he looked deeper into the image and made it with little to no straight lines, everything is curved and it is unlike anyone else's style. If you see a painting you can practically tell just from a few seconds if it is one of Vincent van Gogh's and I like that he was able to be so original and unique and he didn't listen to other people when they said he would be better off if he painted like other people or didn't paint at all. He painted how he saw things and didn't care that people didn't like his work. I also learned that people liked to paint something that had meaning and depth even if others didn't see it. To most people a painting would just look like a vase filled with flowers but to a painter those flowers meant something, the vase probably meant something and all of the flowers meant different things to the painter. They could paint flowers and they could mean new beginnings to the painter or love or really anything at all really. There were also a lot of religious paintings and statues at this time. One of my very favorite things about the painting or even the statues from the time period all leave room for interpretation. I could probably look at these paintings for hours on end trying to decipher what the painter was feeling while painting it. Were they mad, sad, or happy? Were they something else completely? The artwork from the Industrial Revolution is amazing and simple and incredibly thought provoking if you know what to look for in the art. I looked for pictures for about two and a half hours and thought about them and wrote this for about an hour. In total I worked on this Art Investigation for a total of approximately three and a half hours. I enjoyed this part of the project immensely and it was a lot of fun for me because I enjoy art a lot even though I can't draw or paint to save my life. I gathered a total of 250 pieces altogether even though there were 25,000+ pieces on the website during the time period that I was looking at.
