Art Movements

10 Popular Movements in the History of Art

TermDefinition
Abstract A style of art that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world -- even in an extremely distorted or exaggerated way.
Cubism A style of art developed in the early 20th century, characterized chiefly by the reduction of natural forms to their geometrical equivalents and the organization of the planes of a represented object independently of representational requirements.
Expressionism A style of art developed in the 20th century, characterized chiefly by heavy, often black lines that define forms, sharply contrasting, often vivid colors, and subjective or symbolic treatment of thematic material.
Impressionism A style of painting developed in the last third of the 19th century, characterized chiefly by short brush strokes of bright colors in immediate juxtaposition to represent the effect of light on objects.
Post-Impressionism A varied development of Impressionism by a group of painters chiefly between 1880 and 1900 stressing formal structure, as with C├ęzanne and Seurat, or the expressive possibilities of form and color, as with Van Gogh and Gauguin.
Realism A style of art developed about the mid-19th century in which figures and scenes are depicted as they are experienced or might be experienced in everyday life.
Romanticism A movement in literature and the fine arts, beginning in the early nineteenth century, that stressed personal emotion, free play of the imagination, and freedom from rules of form.
Surrealism A style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or irrational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, unexpected juxtapositions, etc.
Fauvism A movement created by a group of French artists of the early 20th century whose works are characterized chiefly by the use of vivid colors in immediate juxtaposition and contours usually in marked contrast to the color of the area defined.
Futurism A style of the arts developed originally by a group of Italian artists about 1910 in which forms derived chiefly from cubism were used to represent rapid movement and dynamic motion.
