because of all the war going on they were only able to be influenced bythemselves and by those around them in their country not others from lack ofpeace around the world. This is why so many types of art came up during thesetimes for different types of reasons or feelings or artistic ways of these paintersto be painting drawings or even just drawing in general and trying to find newways of expressing their feelings or showing expertise.RE: Art and PoliticsBradley Ward 8/14/2015 12:30:21 PMI don't know if they would be considered art by some people, but political cartoons andtheir artists simply amaze me. The wit and ingenuity that goes into them boggles mymind because I know that I could never come up with anything like it. This cartoon aboutHillary Clinton destroying her emails gave me quite a goodlaugh. Modernist ArtBrian Fivecoat 8/12/2015 11:18:32 PMThe famous painter Pablo Picasso is considered to be the founding father of the modernist art form.Fauvism lasted only through a short span of time, and was founded by a group of artists led byHenri Matisse in 1905. Heavy brushstrokes and juxtaposition of bold elementary colors were themain features of these artists. They were hugely inspired by African art. The loud color usebrought the name “Les Fauves” for them, and eventually their art form “Fauvism”. Futurism saw itsadvent around 1910-1920s. This art form out rightly rejected anything and everything “dull, old,safe, and feminine”. These artists were more inclined on “masculine” subjects, such as warfare.

This artist was very much concerned with social constructs and was an avid reader of Nietzsche (forthose who are unfamiliar with this philosopher, he opens up a big ‘ole can of brutal ethnocentrictyand bleak prescriptions for humanity). Can you discuss the way Kirchner is expressing his distasteand distrust of ‘modern’ society in terms of how he is handling paint, how he is setting up hiscomposition, and how he has approached the figures?
