The name les fauves is French for “the wild beasts”. Impressionism : A style of painting that originated in France about 1870. (The first Impressionist exhibit was held in 1874.) Paintings of casual subjects were executed outdoors using divided brush strokes to capture the light & mood of a particular moment & the transitory effects of natural light & color. Minimalism : A nonrepresentational style of sculpture & painting, usually severely restricted in the use of visual elements & often consisting of simple geometric shapes of masses. The style came to prominence in the late 1960s. Photorealism
