The reading for this week and the lecture video both mention three broad schools of art, namely representationalism, impressionism, and abstract. However, there have been many different artistic movements throughout history, for example:
The Bauhaus Movement
The Dada Movement
The Social Realism Movement
Choose ONE of the movements listed above, research it a little on the Internet, and then do the following:
Name the movement you chose.
In your own words, describe the movement you chose (at least 50 words).
Include an image or URL of a painting that represents the movement you chose, including the title of the painting, the painter’s name, and the year it was finished.
Your interpretation of the painting (at least 50 words).
Find someone who chose a different movement than you and comment on their image choice and interpretation

The Feminist Art movement emerged during second wave feminism during the 60s. The goal of the movement is to show the accomplishments of women and to shine some light onto the contributions and history many women have not been credited with due to gender inequality. The title of the painting Iâ€™ve chosen is â€œSelf -Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbirdâ€. This painting is by Frida Kahlo. This painting was completed in 1940. To me this painting represents the feminist art movement because of the context of it. When Kahlo painted it, she was going through her divorce from Diego Rivera. The painting shows her process of grief and internal healing. It also shows that she wonâ€™t be held back. The thorns around her neck show her strength as she feels suffocated after her failed relationship. This to me, means she is strong and wonâ€™t let her pain bind her. Â Reply Reply to Comment
