Answer:

Abstract art is art that has taken a subject or object and skewed its image or representation for artistic purposes. This can be seen in Liubov Popova's "Study for a Portrait" (1915). Nonobjective art is art that is created without a subject or object in mind. A good example of this is Jackson Pollock's "Number 19" (1948).

Question:

Explain why Henri Matisse's "Woman with a hat," is a good example of the Fauvist movement.

Answer:

Fauves (also knows as "wild beasts") exercised art in the fashion of exhibiting painterly qualities over the traditional aesthetics. As seen in "Woman with a hat," by Henri Matisse, Matisse employed complementary and contrasting colors to give the woman depth. This resulted in the use of much green and red-orange which gives the painting a vibrating quality. These vibrant colors negate some of the realistic qualities of Matisse's painting, which inevitably became one of the main focuses of Fauvism.

Question:

In what way did Marcel Duchamp change the way that people viewed art? Explain your answer.

Answer:

Marcel Duchamp revolutionized the way that people viewed art by utilizing "ready-mades." For example, in 1917 Duchamp used a common urinal, signed it R. Mutt, and displayed it in a gallery. The piece was titled "Fountain." Clearly, this item was not a fountain, drinking or otherwise, but the title of a clearly recognizable bathroom fixture caused onlookers to pause and assess the piece differently than if it had been called "Urinal." Duchamp's piece challenged "what is art," and set the trajectory for 20th-century modernity.
