Artistic Style.

Throughout the modern art history art has been characterised by artists such as Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Daniela Hulme. Over the period of time the style of their art became famous. The style that I’ve learnt about Vincent Van Gogh was to use rough rapid brush strokes and layers to make the effect. The artist that stood out for me was Vincent Van Gogh because his technique stands out from the rest.

   In 1874 a group of artists called the anonymous society of painters launched the movement impressionism. Monet was a member of the group that ran the movement. The group was unified because of the independence from the official annual salon.

  Vincent Van Gogh was a dutch painter. He was one of the most famous painters in the world... but he had little recognition with his beautiful artwork and only sold one of his paintings when he was alive.
  Vincent Van Gogh was born on March 30th 1853, Groot-zUndert, near Breda, The Netherlands. When he was 16 years of age he went to hague to live with his uncle that was a art dealer. His own brother Theo was his art dealer. In 1878 he became a preacher in SouthWestern Belgium.
  Henri Matisse style in art is known as fauvism. He was a french artist that used intense and bold colours. Matisse was influenced by the bright colours and the boldness. You would call these kinds of artists art critics because of the boldness in their style.

   Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga Spain, 1881. Picasso’s style is referred to as cubism, his work deals with perspectives and angles. He is known for the backgrounds that he draws because they are random. In the twentieth century Picasso changed his style because he experimented with different techniques and ideas. Picasso was a Spanish painter, dutchman and scalped sculptures when he could.

   During the time that I’ve spent on this piece of writing I have learnt about five different artists, which were Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse,
