Art History: Las vanguardias del S. XX – The Vanguards of the XX C.

Man Ray | Gagosian

Ya estamos en el S. XX y viendo como estos artistas del S. XIX van a enfrentarse a la nueva era y ciertamente que lo era. Todos estaban creando cosas nuevas, publicando manifiestos, formado grupos y haciendo grandes exposiciones…

So now we are in the XX C. and absorbing how these XIX C. artists are coping with the dawn of the new era. And a new era it was. Everyone was creating something different, writing a manifesto, creating a group and exhibiting…

Así que os dejo esta, la siguiente parte, Las Vanguardias del S. XX (algunas) y os urjo a seguir la búsqueda pues par apreciar mejor el arte hay que conocerlo y para ser mejor artista hay que aprender de los grandes y de los pequeños también.

So here is the next part, The Vanguards of the XX C. (some). I urge you to continue the search because knowing more about art is how one appreciates art more and learning more about art one becomes a more rounded off artist. One can learn from the greats as well as from the lesser ones.


Aquí os dejo algunos otros vídeos para que ahondéis mas en la materia:

Here are some other videos so that you can really get into the subject matter:

    1. Si, es un artista muy interesante y en mi ultima visita al Thyssen pude apreciar de muy cerca algunas otras de sus obras, geniales. Gracias Azurea y un feliz domingo, igual. Saludos del Mediterraneo.

    Wonderful to be able to compare these artists side by side. I must say that I am much more intrigued by Picasso’s cubist works than of those by Dali which appear to be somewhat derivative of what he may have seen by other artists. Very informative and fun post, my friend!

    1. Yes, and the main difference is that Dali made his cubist works in Madrid, where there were no cubist artists and more than ten years after Picasso and Braque. Thank you my friend, I am glad you liked it.

    You’re now approaching an era Francesc which will divide a lot of people of what art is all about. Your assessment of these artists is what I expected. There’s no doubt that Picasso is your favourite with Man Ray next – and Salvador Dali definitely last. I was surprised you gave Joan Miro a mention as I know that you’re not a fan of his either.

    You know, as someone who isn’t an artist, I’ve really enjoyed your insight into the world of art – and not just as you see it. I may not be posting anything myself just now, but I always take a look at your wonderful offerings F. Please keep them coming 😊

    1. Yes, you are certainly right, this is the era of many many art forms and where mostly anything goes and people’s tastes go all over the place. I have been reading Dali’s books and I’ve rethought his work and now have begun a certain admiration and I will be featuring Dali as «The Surrealist» in the next video. Now about Joan Miro, that is another story, there is no redeeming value there, at least Dali was a great writer, much better than a painter and even Gala said it…
      Thank you so much my friend, I truly appreciate your time, your visits, your comments and engagement with the posts and most of all your friendship on WP. I will certainly raise a glass! All the best!

        It goes without saying Francesc that the feeling is mutual 🍷
