    Art Movements are the collective titles that are given to artworks that share the same artistic ideas, style, technical approach or time frame. They are a historical convenience for grouping together artists of a common period, style or technique so that they may be more easily understood.

    Locate each of the following movements at www.artchive .com (click on the Mona Lisa) Look at several paintings from each movement and write in your own words a description of the painting and image style.

    IMPRESSIONISM

    CUBISM

    POP ART

    First give a one paragraph description of each art movement.  What are the visual characteristics of the art style.

    Then choose two artists from each movement and pick two art works by each artist and write using the following criteria:

    TITLE OF ARTWORK

    DESCRIBE WHAT YOU SEE IN THE WORK.

    DESCRIBE WHY YOU LIKE IT.

    You should have a list of six artists and twelve artworks.
