Art Movements, Famous Painters & Oil Paintings.
What is an Artistic Movement?
An Art Movement is an art style with a specific particular philosophy or specialized approach. Followed by a group of painters, artists during a period of time in art history, usually for decades. It is a historical convenience for recording painters together during of a period of time or with a painting style that everyone follows, although the subject matter can be anything. There is no settled rule about what determines what an art movement is or who is in it.
Artists related with one movement may hold fast to strict standards, while those who belong to another may have little in common on style or like manner. The naming of artistic movements is done later in time by critics or art historians, but, once in a while, the naming is done by the artist himself, taken from a painting name. There are many minor art movements, sometimes only consisting of a few artists. The art critics or historians have also broken up a movement into sub-movements, sometimes confusingly. The movements are broken down as to how and why they came about, what is important about them, what artists are in that group, along with oil painting highlights and much more. You can find more information about specific artists in our extensive Biography section.
