PART 1: Representational art is the expression or presentation of real objects, or the appearance of those objects. An example of this is the oil painting by Rene Magritte of the pipe (under the pipe it says: this is definitely not a pipe). It is still a painting of a real object, it represents a pipe, but she is stating realistically it is not a pipe but a painting representing a pipe. Abstract art can be a couple of things because it can present real objects but in complex or simple ways which is similar to representational art, or abstract art can have no representation of objects or a subject which is similar to nonrepresentational art. An example of abstract art is Theo van Doesburg’s Abstraction of a cow series in which the cow (a real object/animal) is represented in increasing simplified ways – ending as a geometric shapes. Nonrepresentational art is art that has no representation of anything else, it has no subject or object being depicted in the art. An example of this is The Gray Night Phenomenon by Alma Woodsey Thomas,

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
