Beautiful Paintings in Modernism

It is a turnaround from traditional art. It has been derived from a mix of other artistic styles, but it has no interlinking with the traditional methods. It was created by the artists who felt that the traditional works were not fit for the emerging era’s economic, social, and political environment. Self-consciousness and different techniques were involved which accentuated the materials and processes used in creating the paintings.

Western painting Styles and Impressionism

It was an art style that originated along with Paris-based artists. Brushstrokes in impressionist paintings are thin and small but still visible. Significance is given to the depiction of light as a mix of colors was used to create accurate reflection. Common subjects and unusual angles were portrayed. They capture the transient and momentary effects of sunlight and varied compositions by not blending the brush smoothly or avoiding any shading in the painting. With time, new techniques developed which were specific to distinct styles. 

Abstract Western Paintings Abstraction

Artist describes his view of the world in an abstract painting. Abstract art gives significance to colors and shapes more than the sketch. The shapes are used to symbolize the objects and the colors represent the emotions of the artist. Canvas can hold any kind of imagery. It can contain a very ugly sketch of a woman in the sunlight but the colors used would make the painting appealing to the eye. Figurative art is a form of modern abstract art that includes a little more naturalism to the painting. It emerged out as pure abstraction was not appreciated by many artists, naming Jackson Pollock. In abstract styles, artists give a physical structure to their imagination. The most common and famous abstract art styles involve the effective use of watercolors.

Expressionism and Beautiful Paintings

Although it comes under abstract style, expressionism equates to the feelings and emotions of the artist. Expressionist tries to induce feelings into his art to connect with the viewer. Thus, these artworks are more about emotional experiences rather than physical reality. Jackson Pollock used to simply pour paint on his work so that the natural movement of paint gets captured in it and gives an emotional echo. He barely used a brush. In a way, expressionism is the opposite of what “impressionism” is.  Vincent Van Ghosh is another infamous artist for expressionism.

Pablo Picasso, the famous painter, followed the cubism technique in his paintings. The art seems to be a reassembled work of broken pieces. Instead of one plain image or viewpoint, the artist turns it into multiple geometric shapes.

Surrealism- the Abstract Western Paintings

Only some aspects of abstract art can be observed in Surrealism. Artists say that their work is philosophy-related. They painted irrelevant and surprising scenes, creating strange images of regular objects and developed techniques for the expression of the unconscious mind.

A poet once explained in his poem that life is to create, something or anything, which is out there in the world. Something which exists even when you are long gone. It could be a sock, or a poem, or a beautiful painting… And that is what the basic purpose of life is.
