Impressionism, pop art and abstract expressionism.

Filed under: General — laurarpgi23 @ 22:19

Abstract expressionism

Abstract expressionism was a movement created in America after the Second World War in the 1940s and after a few decades it had spread around the world.

Abstract expressionism is usually painted over big surfaces, and specially over canvas using oil. Normally, it removes figures, but there are some exceptions. Other of its mains characteristics is the use of the called ”all over” which covers all the surface of the canvas, and it means an open field without limits on the painting’s surface. The use of colours is reduced to white, black and the primary colours: yellow, magenta and cian. In this kind of paintings we can see the distress, which reflects the society where these paintings came out.

First, it was under the influence of the surrealism. After de WWII, it created two new trends: action painting and color fields.  Some action painters are Polloc and Kooning and color-field painters are artists such us Rothko.

 Pop Art

Pop art is an art movement which was created in the early 1950s and in America in the late 1950s.  Pop removes the material from its context and isolates the object, or combines it with other objects.Pop art is employed in mass culture such us advertising, comic books or other cultural objects. Unlike to the abstract expressionism, pop art uses the irony and parody. Pop art’ objective is to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art.

Much of pop art is considered ilogic, as some practices that are often used make it difficult for some to understandit easily.

Some pop art artists are Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann.


It was a 19- century movement originated by some artists from Paris. At the start they didn’t have any success, but then it became a really important movement. Its name is derived from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant.

It has small, thin, yet visible brush strokes.Radicals in their time, early Impressionists violated the rules of academic painting.They began by constructing their pictures from freely brushed colours .The Impressionists found out that they could capture the momentary and transient effects of sunlight by painting en plein air.

Impressionism became a precursor of various styles of painting, including Neo-Impressionism, Post-impressionism, Fauvism and Cubism.

Some Impressionist are Cézanne, Degas, Manet, Monet et Renoir.

Pop art is an art movementthat emerged in the mid 1950s in Britain,and in the late 1950s in the United States.Pop art challenged tradition by asserting that an artist’s use of the mass-produced visual commodities of popular culture is contiguous with the perspective of fine art. Pop removes the material from its context and isolates the object, or combines it with other objects, for contemplation. The concept of pop art refers not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it.

Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertisingcomic books, and mundane cultural objects. It is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expresionism as well as an expansion upon them.

The Campbell’s Soup Cans labels, by Andy Warhol, is a good example of pop art.

Abstract expressionism was an American post–World War II art movement. It was the first specifically American movement to achieve worldwide influence and put New York City at the center of the western art world, a role formerly filled by Paris. Although the term “abstract expressionism” was first applied to American art in 1946 by the art critic Robert Coates, it had been first used in Germany in 1919 in the magazine Der Sturm, regarding German Expressionism. In the USA, Alfred Barr was the first to use this term in 1929 in relation to works by Wassily Kandinsky

Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s. The name of the style is derived from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satiric review published in the Parisian newspaper Le Charivari.Characteristics of Impressionist paintings include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes; open composition; emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time); common, ordinary subject matter; the inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience; and unusual visual angles.

    A painting movement in which artists typically applied paint rapidly, and with force to their huge canvases in an effort to show feelings and emotions, painting gesturally, non-geometrically, sometimes applying paint with large brushes, sometimes dripping or even throwing it onto canvas. Their work is characterized by a strong dependence on what appears to be accident and chance, but which is actually highly planned. Some Abstract Expressionist artists were concerned with adopting a peaceful and mystical approach to a purely abstract image. Usually there was no effort to represent subject matter. Not all work was abstract, nor was all work expressive, but it was generally believed that the spontaneity of the artists’ approach to their work would draw from and release the creativity of their unconscious minds. The expressive method of painting was often considered as important as the painting itself.

   Abstract Expressionism originated in the 1940s, and became popular in the 1950s.

    Artists who painted in this style include Hans Hoffman, Adolph Gottlieb, Mark Rothko Willem De Kooning ,Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman…


   Pop Art emerged in the mid 1950s in England, but realized its fullest potential in New York in the ’60s where it shared, with Minimalism, the attentions of the art world.

   It is a moot point as to whether the most extraordinary innovation of 20th-century art was Cubism or Pop Art. Both arose from a rebellion against an accepted style: the Cubists thought Post-Impressionist artists were too tame and limited, while Pop Artists thought the Abstract Expressionists pretentious and over-intense. Pop Art brought art back to the material realities of everyday life, to popular culture (hence “pop”), in which ordinary people derived most of their visual pleasure from television, magazines, or comics.

   The most famous of the Pop artists, the cult figure Andy Warhol, recreated quasi-photographic paintings of people or everyday objects.


Impressionism, French Impressionism, a major movement, first in painting and later in music, that developed chiefly in France during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Impressionist painting comprises the work produced between about 1867 and 1886 by a group of artists who shared a set of related approaches and techniques. The most conspicuous characteristic of Impressionism was an attempt to accurately and objectively record visual reality in terms of transient effects of light and colour. The principal Impressionist painters were Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro.   The established painter Édouard Manet, whose work in the 1860s greatly influenced Monet and others of the group, himself adopted the Impressionist approach about 1873. Edgar Degas and Paul Cézanne also painted in an Impressionist style for a time in the early 1870s.

Abstract Expressionism, Impressionism and Pop Art



Abstract Expressionism

Abstract expressionism was an American post-World War II art movement. It was the first specifically American movement to achieve worldwide influence and also the one that put New York City at the center of the art world, a role formerly filled by Paris.

Although the term “abstract expressionism” was first applied to American art in 1946 by the art critic Robert Coates, it had been first used in Germany in 1919 in the magazine Der Sturm, regarding German Expressionism. In the USA, Alfred Barr was the first to use this term in 1929 in relation to works by Wassily Kandinsky.[1]

Like all Modern art, a general term used for most of the artistic production from the late Nineteenth century until approximately the 1970s, works of art created during this period reflect a new approach to art which placed emphasis on representing emotions, themes, and various abstractions. Artists experimented with new ways of seeing, with fresh ideas about the nature, materials and functions of art, often moving further toward abstraction.

In Expressionist Art, the artist tries to express certain feelings about some thing. The artists that painted in this style were more concerned with having their paintings express a feeling than in making the painting look exactly like what they were painting.

Marc Chagall , Wassily Kandinsky , Ludwig Kirchne


Impressionism was developed in France during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These pieces of art were painted as if someone just took a quick look at the subject of the painting. The paintings were usually in bold colors and did not have a lot of detail. The paintings in this style were usually outdoor scenes like landscapes. The pictures were painted to look like they were shimmering.

Characteristics of Impressionist paintings include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes; open composition; emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time); common, ordinary subject matter; the inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience; and unusual visual angles. The development of Impressionism in the visual arts was soon followed by analogous styles in other media which became known as Impressionist music and Impressionist literature.

The term “Impressionism” can also be used to describe art created in this style, but not during the late 19th century.

Claude Monet,  Mary Cassatt, Pierre Auguste Renoir,  Camille Pissaro.

Pop Art

Pop Art, born slightly after the Abstract Expressionist movement, is seen by many as both a reaction and an expansion on the ideas which that movement was presenting.  The idea of Pop Art is one which seeks to challenge traditional approaches to art.  The definition of Pop Art maintains that when an artist uses an image or theme that is a mass-produced quantity, their work is still valid and should be classified as Fine Art because they are removing any of the original meaning from the context and are making a unique statement with the materials which they use.  The entire idea behind Pop Art does not relate so much to the art itself as to the attitudes of the artists about the pieces.

Pop Art has roots with Pop Music as well, with the movement toward expressing popular ideas and beliefs instead of the more traditional elitist views toward beauty in art and life.  Both elements make heavy use of irony while making their points.  It is usually seen as a way of responding to the personal symbolism that Abstract Expressionism brought, making art more accessible to the public with impersonal works filled with irony and parody to make a point.

Though it began in America during the late 1950s, Pop Art took its strongest hold during the 60s, when artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol had found a place in the art world.  Due to the absorbing of modern art into the increasingly sophisticated advertising world, the American public didn’t have a far leap to make into Pop Art.  The struggle with the artists came in the form of finding deeper meaning in the popular images of the day, an exercise which the public took very well to.  The strength with which the artists imbued their work was forceful, however.  The bold and striking images which came from the Pop Art movement are ones which can still find resonance today.

Pop art can be any every day item that is drawn in a brash and colorful way. Pop Art is short for Popular Art. It is inspired by comic strips, advertising, and popular entertainment.

Andy Warhol,  Roy Lichtenstein,  Claes Oldenberg ,  David Hockney

Miguel González Menéndez, 5/4/2011


There are 3 basic colours, which are Magenta, Cyan and Yellow.


With those ones combinated we obtain lots of COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS.

The complementary colours are the ones you can see opposite theirselves, for example green is the complementary of magenta and viceversa.

If we put black or white over them we saturize or desaturize them, so we can obtain colours like the ones you’ll see below:

I will talk about my favourite mass media, the internet. Internet is not just a place to find information. You can use it for anything. You can also chat with your family and friends through social networks like tuenti, facebook or twitter and many more options available in the net. In my opinion Internet has been a great discover in recent years and everyone uses it especially young people. But it´s also dangerous because be exposed to it can damage the eyes and create an addiction, so we must do a correct use of it.explorador-internet.jpg

My most used mass media is TV. Depending the exams, the amount of homework and the time I stay at home, I aproximatly spend 2 hours in this mass media everyday. I usually use it with my parents to learn cultures and traditions of the different countries, especially of Spain, to learn languages, to search information for school, to entertainment, to know the knews are happening at the moment and also hardly ever for boredom, when I’m alone. Some series I watch are ”Red Eagle”, ”Wolf Land”, ”Pasapalabra”, ”Spains on the world”,”Aida”, ”Spain”(Hispania),”The Legend of the Seeker” that is not on tv actually, ”CSI”, etc. I don’t use this mass media in special situations only when I want or when I have time. If this mass media didn’t exist people would be different. They wouldn’t know news are happening at the moment, they wouldn’t know about traditions or cultures of the different countries and they wouldn’t know about a lot of other things. This mass media appeared years ago but the first broadcast was in England in 1936 and after in other countries like USA. People would be more inteligent and  they would learn more things. I would change nothing in this mass media. In my opinion it is really fantastic. images-1.jpg                                                    tv-400.jpg

I really like watch TV, I spend a lot of time in front of it. I see it 1 or 2 hours every day but only if I have done all my homework and if I haven’t got any exams next day. I normally see TV for entreteiment but sometimes for boredon becuse I haven’t got anything to do. I always see in TV series like “Doctor Mateo”, “El internado”, “Hospital central”, ” Bones”  and other series,  I see all of it with my family because sometimes I’m scared. I really like see documentaries of animals too but I see it alone because when they are at the TV my parents are working. When I’m very bored I see cartoons with my little brother like “spongebob” or “Dora the explorer”. I thing that when you are watching TV you can learn a lot of traditions of other countries in the world. If TV didn’t exixtt probably it will be very boring and you can’t know wat is happening in every part of the world. When TV was introduced in our lives supose a very important technological change.






I add some links of tv programmes:

Look for different jobs related to this subject in every sense of the term from Technical professions to Media professionals.

You can search on the internet for several images and once you have selected five of them, draw them (copy, if you like it) with colours in your drawing book.

After finishing your tasks, we will scan the pictures in order to have a digital image that we can project on a very big piece of paper. My idea is to organise an exhibition with these figures who will have a speech bubble explaing their jobs.

The target of the exercise is to think how many jobs and studies are related with the subject and that Arts in general words provide a wide range of professional opportunities.

Here are some cases in which the phoenix appears taking part in a symbol

The Phoenix Suns are a professional basketball team based in Phoenix, Arizona. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Although the name of the team is like this because of the city where it has been created, the city is called like that because this name represents the idea of a city born from the ruins of a former civilization (A Native American village). The name was suggested by Lord Darrell Duppa, in the nineteenth century.

Granollers Fénix Club de fútbol américa. This club was refunded several times along the time, that’s why it’s similar to the mythological creature, because it reborns form its ashes. The effort of all members of the club has kept the team alive, like a phoenix fighting for survival. At this moment they are looking for sponsors.

Fénix Club de rugby Zaragoza. A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. This is the way this team was reborn over and over again, because through the time this team has been closed and opened many times, (because of some economical problems) that’s why it’s called “Fenix”, which is the Spanish word for “Phoenix”.

The Order of the Phoenix

The Order of the Phoenix is a fiction secret society founded by Albus Dumbledore to oppose Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters in the Harry Potter books (by J.K Rowling). The original Order was created in 1970, after Voldemort returned to England from abroad and started his campaign to take over the Ministry of Magic and persecute Muggle-borns. The Order worked with the Ministry to oppose the Dark Lord and his followers, and played a crucial role in the First Wizarding War. Victory came in 1981 at the cost of many of their members.

The Order disbanded, but was reconvened in 1995 after Harry Potter informed Dumbledore of Lord Voldemort’s return. This group is called “The order of the Phoenix” because the phoenix is Dumbledore’s symbol. Dumbledore likes this animal, because it represents immortality, (Dumbledore is more than 150 years old) and hope, as the phoenix always reborns, and these are this great wizard’s maxims.

A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head and torso and the tail of a fish. Mermaids have a broad representation in folklore, literature, and popular culture.The word is a compound of mere, the Old English word for “sea”, and maid, a woman. Mermaids sometimes sing to people and gods and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to die.


The Starbucks logo is a ”twin-tailed” mermaid. Starbucks was a ”Moby Dick” character. The Starbuck’s founder had worked for the navy and had a tattoo of a mermaid, which is related also to ”Moby Dick”.

One day boy digs up the money but he didn’t tell that to his father because he wanted to buy things. He hid the money in a car that was near the coat Leaf. A few days later he had a discussion with his father and his father left the village. Then Boy went to the old car to took the money but Leaf ate them.  He was really desperated so he get drunk and he fall of a bridge. A man rescue him and them he went back home, his father was there.

Not long ago, we went to the “Universidad Laboral”   to see a film called “Boy”. The film was about a boy called “Alamein”, whic was poor and live with his Grandma (Yaya), his brother (Rocky) and his cousins. Someday, his father come, which scaped from the prison with a spoon. Alamein, tried to imitate his father, because he think he was a great person. His father came because he buried some money, and Alamein, his father and his friends, were digging, looking for the money. When Alamein find the money, his goat, “Leaf”, ate it.  At the end, Alamein realised that his father wasn’t a good person, and he kicked him.

I didn’t like the film too much, it was too long and boring, but in some scenes is entertaining.

My favourite mass media, is the internet. I use it every day, as long as I can. I expecially use it, to chat with my friends and play, but I usually use it, to make some homework and to search for information. I also use it to search videos on webs like “Youtube”, and look photos about me and my friends in webs like “Tuenti” or “Facebook”. I sometimes use the Internet alone, for example when I play some massively online game, well, when I’m playing that type of game, I’m not really alone, because I’ m probably playing with 2 million people, but I prefer to use the Internet with people I know, for example, chat with my friends on ”Messenger” or ”Voxli” (This is not very known). I think, if this mas media doesn’t exist, it could be harder to me to do all the things I said before. I think Internet, is something that in our actual culture, we need it, because, for example, important people, like presidents, have to send messages to other importan people, and without Internet, this could be very difficult.

1. Converse All Star: The blue star in the centre, symbolizes the best basketball players in the world, who many years ago wore Converse trainers in their matches.


2. The star of the ambulance, symbolizes the Paramedics, and the six ways to save lives. It is called, the star of the life.

3. The stars of the European flag symbolize the union of countries which form Europe. The number of stars symbolizes the perfection and the unit.


4. David’s star symbolizes the union of God and the humanity. It is the symbol of the Judaism and it was used by them to be identified by the Nazis.

5. Belen’s star, it was used to guide the Three Wise Men to the birth of Jesus.

6. The 50 stars of the USA flag, symbolize the fifty states which form the USA.

7.  The stars of Madrid flag, symbolize two things: first, it symbolizes the stars which form the Little Bear constellation (you can see it from Sierra de Guadarrama, which delimit the old city council of Madrid); the second, is that seven stars were in the Madrid‘s coat of arms with other castles.

8. The red star, symbolizes the socialism and the communism. It appears in the old URSS, North Corea, Benin, old Yugoslavia and Albania flags; in many coats of arms; and in many war emblems.

9. The Star Damm beer has got a star in its bottle. In its origin, it was called Golden Star, because the colour of the beer, but in 1991, it changed its name to Star Damm, like its creator August Kuentzmann Damm.

10. The logotype of Mercedes Benz is a three pikes star, the legend said that Daimler (creator of car) wrote to her daughter Mercedes a postcard with a map, and in the map there was a star in the first Mercedes Benz factory. But people also said that the star, symbolizes the earth, the sea and the air, elements in which Daimler’s motors where pioneers to travel by.

On the 24th November all the bilingual class went to the Universidad Laboral, to see the film called Boy.

The film was about one boy called Boy and his brother Rocky, who lived in New Zealand with their grandmother, and they have a goat, called Leaf. They didn’t have a mother because she was dead, and their father Alamein is Boy’s hero, but they don’t know where he is. One day, the grandmother goes to a funeral, and leaves the kids alone in the house. That day, in the evening, their father arrives to boy’s house. Boy’s father is so weird. He’s part of an illegal  group called Crazy Horses, he takes drugs and he is in New Zealand because he’s looking for a lot of money he buried somewhere there years ago. Boy starts to behave like his father, although he is not a very good influence, but Boy doesn’t realise. Some days later Boy finds his father’s buried money, but unfortunately Leaf eats it all, and Boy doesn’t tell his father. At the end, Boy is tired of his father’s behaviour, and he tells him that Leaf had eat all the money. When Alamein is going to shout at him, Boy kick him, and his father understands that he has to leave. The next morning, Alamein in not there, and the story finishes.

Mass media

I like all the mass medias, but I think I prefer the Internet. I spend here about 1 or 2 hours, but not everyday, for example I don’t use it on holidays or some days at the weekend, because I don’t have time for it. When I’m on it, I usually listen to music and download it, watch videos, but the thing on which I spend most of time are the social networks, like Tuenti or Facebook. There, I talk with friends and I see photos. I also spend time on MSN but is not as important as the social networks. I usually use this mass media alone, but if I’m on it with my friends, we use it all toguether. I really like the internet, but I think that I spend too much time on it. I think that if we didn’t use it we would do other things which are as important as internet or more, but in the other hand I think that Internet is very useful because you can search for things in a faster way, you can have contact with people in other parts in the world more cheaply, and the news flow faster on it.

My favourite Mass Media

Filed under: Mass Media — paulanggi23 @ 17:56

My favourite Mass Media is Internet. I usually use it every day for one or two hours, but if I have exams or a lot of homework I don’t use it. I use it to listen to music, watch videos, films, and to talk with my friends, using Messenger or social networks such as Tuenti or Facebook. My favourite is Tuenti because all my friends have it, I can talk with them using the chat and I can see photos and videos that they upload. I use Internet alone, and sometimes with my friends. I think that Internet is the best Mass Media.

Mass Media

My favourite Mass Media is the Internet. Normaly, I use it every day about an hour, except on Saturdays and Sundays that I use it more. When I have a lot of homework or exams I don’t use it .I use the Internet to search information, listen to music, watch videos or films, and especially to talk with my friends in some social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Tuenti. My favourite is Tuenti because all of my friends have got Tuenti, so I can chat wtih them whenever I want. I use the Internet on my own, but sometimes I use it with my sister or with my friends. I think that Internet is the best Mass Media.

Favourite Mass Media

Filed under: Mass Media — adrianscgi23 @ 16:39

My favourite mass media is the Internet, on which I spend, except for Saturdays and Sundays (in which I spend about an hour and a half) about 30 or 45 minutes.

Between Monday and Friday I mostly use the Internet to look for some information or to chat at night with my friends. On  Saturdays and Sundays I use it basically to chat, play onbline games or to download music.

I think the Internet is fantastic, cecause it allows me to cummunicate with friends who live in other parts of Spain or with my closest friends without pending a cent in phone calls. It is also a great source of information (if you know where to look) and a good tool for your studies. You can also find good games to play and some free music to download. Although it is not the best way of spending an afternoon (I prefer doing sport or my friends) I think the Internet is a great mass media.

The 24th of November, the Bilingual Section went to the Laboral Theatre to watch a film called Boy. The film was about a child called Boy who lives in Australia with his grandmother, his cousins , his brother Rocky and his best friends, a goat. They were poor. Boy and Rocky didn’t have mother, because she died in Rocky’s birth, and their father wasn’t with them, he was at the jail, but he scaped and form a band called Crazy Horses. One they, Shogun, Boy and Rocky’s father, came back home to look for his money, which was buried underground. Boy found the money and the goat ate it, so Shogun got angry. Finally, Shogun, Boy and Rocky started living like a family, and they go to visit their mother’s tomb.

The film was quite boring sometimes, it was a little bit strange but It was also funny, It was different to the other films I’ve ever seen.

Last wednesday we went to Laboral university to see a film called boy. It was about a boy called Alamein(but his friends call him Boy). He live in Australia with his brother Rocky, his grandmother and all his cousins, and they are poor. His father “Shogun” was in prision but he scaped with a spoon. One day his father came back to Boy’s house with some friends to look for his money which was buried near the house, but Boy discovered it. He didn’t tell anything to his father and his coat ate the money. When Shogun realisez that Boy lost his money he became crazy.

I didn’t like the film so much because it was some boring in some parts

It is my favourite mass medium, I use it practically everyday, depending the day of the week and the exams and homework I have. I usually spend two or three hours in front of the computer. I use it to chat with my friends by social networks like Tuenti or Facebook, but I also use it to search for information, listen to music, watch films… I normally use Internet alone, but sometimes, I use it with friends when they come to my house or with my parents, to search for something about our holidays for example. If this medium didn’t exist I think I will probably have more free time, to play sports, to read, to meet friends…, but I won’t have access to information or music at home, like I have now. Finally, I think that Internet is very useful and everybody can have access to it easily, I think is an advantage from technology
