ABSTRACTION
a. Distortion
HEAD VI (1949)
FRANCIS BACON

The primal scream is the outstanding motif of these first canvases, where nearly the entire face disappears in shadow, leaving only the mouth that utters the cry.  The background is a sort of curtain of shadows from which the figure emerges.

Birds in Space
Constantin Brancusi

In this sculpture, Brancusi concentrated on the physical attributes of the bird on its movement. The bird’s wings and feathers are eliminated, the swell if the body is elongated, and the head and the beak are reduced to a slanted oval.

b. Elongation

Portrait Of Pablo Picasso
Amadeo Modigliani

Artist’s impression of painter Pablo Picasso upon meeting him at the first time in Paris.

Tete
Amadeo Modigliano
Portrait Of Pablo Picasso

Salvador Dali

d. Cubism
VIOLIN AND CANDLESTICK
GEORGE BRACQUES

WOMAN’S HEAD
PABLO PICASSO

The first true Cubist sculpture was
Picasso's impressive Woman's Head,
modeled in 1909-10, a counterpart in
three dimensions to many similar
analytical and faceted heads in his
paintings at the time

e. Abstract Expressionism

“CONVERGENCE”
JACKSON POLLOCK

This is one of the best known works of Jackson Pollock. He is best known for his ‘action’ paintings, executed by dripping, pouring, and splashing liquid paint onto horizontal canvases on the floor.

“FUGUE”
ERWIN FABIAN

This work demonstrates real sensibility and panache in the handling of materials that are, in essence, industrial detritus – beaten, crushed, twisted and abandoned fragments of rusted metal that plainly have seen better days.

3. SYMBOLISM

The Apparition
Gustave Moreau

"The Apparition" is based on
the theme of Salome's avenge against John the Baptist, and is an epitome of the threatening power of a woman

COURTSHIP DANCE
JOHN ROBINSON

This graceful sculpture is of two intertwined
parts, each of them cut from an ovoid, the
symbol of life. It was inspired by the mating
displays of the Brolgas, a bird of the crane
family, which flock in their thousands by
billabongs in Australia.

4. FAUVISM

O SISTER
THANEEYA MCARDLE
