Much of her text questions the viewer about feminism, classicism, consumerism, and individual autonomy and desire, although her black-and-white images are culled from the mainstream magazines that sell the very ideas she is disputing.

Otto Dix Biography, Art, and Analysis of Works

I paint dreams and visions too; the dreams and visions of my time. Painting is the effort to produce order; order in yourself. There is much chaos in me, much chaos in our time. " Synopsis Otto Dix has been perhaps more influential than any other German painter in shaping the popular image of the Weimar Republic of the 1920s. Key Ideas Otto Dix is one of modern painting's most savage satirists. Otto Dix was initially drawn to Expressionism and Dada, but like many of his generation in Germany in the 1920s, he was inspired by trends in Italy and France to embrace a cold, linear style of drawing and more realistic imagery.

Metropolis - George Grosz. The transformation of the city into a vast metropolis was one of the subjects that most fascinated early twentieth-century painters, and Grosz was no exception.

Metropolis - George Grosz

One of the many artists anxious to capture these rapid, constant changes, he painted this vision of Berlin at the height of the First World War in an Expressionist style in which red is the dominant colour. In it he uses Cubist and Futurist devices, a very rigid perspective and overlapping figures to convey the frenzied pace of city life. Yet whereas other painters provide a highly optimistic interpretation, Grosz—marked by his personal wartime experience—offers us an apocalyptic vision, stressing the alienation of man as he plunges headlong towards self-destruction. Metropolis is a significant work on account of its underlying history. Banksy. Honoré Daumier. Honoré-Victorin Daumier (French: [ɔnɔʁe domje]; February 26, 1808 – February 10, 1879) was a French printmaker, caricaturist, painter, and sculptor, whose many works offer commentary on social and political life in France in the 19th century.

Honoré Daumier

Daumier produced over 500 paintings, 4000 lithographs, 1000 wood engravings, 1000 drawings and 100 sculptures. A prolific draughtsman, he was perhaps best known for his caricatures of political figures and satires on the behavior of his countrymen, although posthumously the value of his painting has also been recognized.[1] Life[edit] Daumier was born in Marseille to Jean-Baptiste Louis Daumier and Cécile Catherine Philippe.

His father Jean-Baptiste was a glazier whose literary aspirations led him to move to Paris in 1814, seeking to be published as a poet.[2] In 1816 the young Daumier and his mother followed Jean-Baptiste to Paris.

The image of the Greek goddess Niobe, weeping for her dead offspring, was painted on a door from the ruins of Rabie Darduna's house in Gaza City. It can be seen in a video released by the secretive artist after his surprise visit to the Palestinian territory a month ago and is on his website. A local buyer gave Mr Darduna just 700 shekels ($175; £118) for the picture. However, original Banksy artworks have recently sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Lent 2, Romans 5:1-11.

LESSON THREE: Action/Reaction: Art and Politics in Oxford Art Online.

Following the outbreak of World War I, avant-garde artistic practices that had been developed to challenge traditional means of representation (Cubism, for example) lost their resonance with many artists, who felt that their abstract fissures and voids were too removed from current political and social realities. A number of artists, including Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger, rejected Cubism and sought a more suitable means of representing the world around them. This lesson takes as its focus works of art that were created by artists in direct response to the war and to social turmoil in their environments and in the world.

Students will examine three images that represent different ways that artists, in the years between World War I and World War II, responded to the social and political turmoil around them. Students will discuss these images in terms of subject matter, composition, style, and representation. Annette Messager: motion / emotion. Guernica Appropriations. - Terrigal High School.
