Image property of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY.Jackson Pollack was a famous professional American painter and a big figure in the art style of expressionism. Expressionism involved the artist’s emotional experience rather than his painting focusing on the outside world like nature. Expressionism evokes moods, ideas, and feelings in a radical way as seen in Pollacks last art painting. Although it looks like a whole bunch of crazy lines, it does evoke a lot of emotion which makes it very expressive.

Pablo Picasso: Cubanism

Pablo Picasso used Cubanism as his way of art. Cubanism was developed between 1908 and 1912 by Georges Braques. Braques¬†used this as a way to showcase how he viewed objects, and so he painted them in an abstract way. Picasso built off this idea but didn’t necessarily portray natural objects. Instead he’d draw things like people in a geometric and abstract style that served as a good figurative example.
