Picassos Les Desmoiselles Davignon - 1,414 words
Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality." They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

One of Picassos most famous pieces from this time was Old Man and a Guitar, which was done with a dismal blue haze and very dull colors. The painting was of an old man hunched over playing a guitar.

There are many Countries in the world, but non-like France. France is one of the most interesting countries in the world because of their history, creative arts, and even their transportation.

Australian Art 1930-1960 - 2,543 words
The environment was major contributing factor to the evolution of Australian art in the 20th century. The elemental landscape; isolation and distance, the imposition of the mythical and the visionary on the landscape, national identity (the universal and the regional) and the demise of Arcadia and romantic idealism interweave magnificently to present the impact of surroundings on the artwork of such a then delicate nation.
