What is your favorite art movement and why?


I recently learned a lot about the Pre-Raphaelite movement in art history, and it has since become my favorite movement. I was just curious about what others consider to be their favorite movement and why.

    I did always find Art Deco to be too geometric, and I personally prefer softer styles, but I do love the use of bold color that is often used in the Art Deco style (in painting at least). I also love graffiti art and how expressive it is.

    One of my favorite aspects the Pre-Raphaelites is that they so well blur the line between art and poetry, and being a literature student, to see them both expressed in one painting is hard to contend with in my mind :)

    I can completely understand your passion for street art. There seems to be an unfortunate disregard for original modern forms of art like this and a consistent preference for the more formal and classic styles in the art world.

    I appreciate any art that risks the unconventional, and few forms do this better than MADI. I have actually never been to the MOMA, and I am dying to go.

    Movement was a slightly too narrow term; I was just curious what people like hoping to broaden my preferences :) Norman Rockwell's ability to capture people's personality and emotion is absolutely amazing.

    Very unexpected but very true thought :) It's impossible to even imagine what art would be like if we were able to capture it on paper. That's something I have never thought about, but it is a wonderful take on art.
