||Description of Artwork
|The painting is enormous, with thick brushstrokes, paint splatters, and bold colors.
||This is most likely an example of Abstract Expressionism, which is often large, abstract, and brightly colored.
|It’s not clear if the artwork is a painting or a sculpture, but it is a painted square that sticks out of the wall.
||Minimalist art is geometric, simple, and often blurs the line between painting and sculpture.
|This piece of art is a telephone with a lobster for a handle.
||This example could be a number of things, but it is likely either Dada or Surrealist. Both movements make art out of normal, everyday objects—transforming them from functional objects to works of visual art.
|This is a photograph of a Depression-era farmer with his family.
||During the Great Depression, social realism was a movement that highlighted the realities of American life in paintings and photographs. Similarly, American Regionalism depicted rural American life.
|A sculpture hangs from the center of a gallery display, slowly rotating.
||Kinetic art, such as the mobiles made by Alexander Calder, is always moving, and meant to be seen from multiple perspectives.
|This painting is glossy and large, and depicts logos and brand names of familiar products.
||This sounds like pop art, which often depicts mass media and consumer images.
|This work of art is composed of random materials such as trash, children’s toys, or old clothes.
||Arte Povera is often composed of non-art materials. This type of art could also be an assemblage, or one of Robert Rauschenberg’s combines.
|The entire room seems to be a work of art.
||This is an example of installation art, art that encompasses a whole environment.
|The painting depicts a violin, but the image is repeated multiple times, is partially abstract, and is made up of jagged, geometric lines.
||This sounds like an example of Cubism. Cubists like Picasso and Braque were interested in depicting an object from multiple viewpoints and often accomplished this through fragmentation and collage.
