Art History


This world is but a canvas to our imagination. Henry David Thoreau


When you think of studying art history, what do you think of? A class you took in high school? Watching television specials on PBS? Looking through a huge coffee table book at the local book retailer? What about browsing fanart on DeviantArt? Believe it or not, the evolution of art and its styles can be seen quite easily by clicking through works from fellow deviants and quite a lot of them come with something special: a modern twist! In recent years, a surge of works from talented artists across the globe has put some pizazz in older art styling through pop culture, fandom, and humor. From Ancient Mycenaean, to Art Nouveau, to Impressionism, and more, artists have bridged antiquity with modernity in unique ways to combine old styling with new interests. Ready to take a walk through history alongside your favorite modern topics? Here we go!

Ancient Eras: Greece, Rome, and Beyond!


Though their roots stem back to pre-history, ancient styles of art have carried through to the modern times in some beautiful ways. Many artists on dA have embraced all things ancient in an effort to make old into new and these pieces are just a sampling of such!

Asian Art: Traditional Styles with Modern Spin


The creativity of the Japanese has carved itself a niche in pop culture across the globe. From video games, to anime, to major motion pictures, Japanese creations are frequent and highly beloved. Some fans in the art community have made the effort to harken back to a time without these modern creations, though, by creating art in the traditional ukiyo-e style. Have a look at some incredible works that pay homage to current creations through Japan's artistic past.

C'est la Vie: La Popularité de l'Art Nouveau


Art Nouveau styling made famous by masters like Aphonse Mucha and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec may have been most popular in the 1890s through the early 20th century, but it has recently found a resurgence in popularity that can be seen frequently in pop culture. Explore this booming trend with some wonderful example pieces from fellow deviants!

Art Movements: Cubism, Impressionism, and more!


Everyone has a favorite art movement or two: what's yours? Regardless of how you might feel about Romanticism, Cubism, Impressionism, or other artistic movements, it is without question that talented deviants have done a great job of taking what they love most and reinterpreting it in a specific art style or method. Have a look at a few pieces from deviants who rose to the challenge and re-imagined things in a whole new way!

Art Parodies: Have you seen them before?


Many of DeviantArt's ultra-clever artists have taken art appreciation to a whole new level with unique parodies of famous pieces most of us will be familiar with. Take a look at some awesome art parodies of classical works and see if you can name the original piece!

Art Styles: Discuss!


There are so many art styles through history that we can learn and grow from as artists if we study. Here are a few questions for you all regarding art styles, the evolution of art, and art through history to get us all talking!

  • 1. What art movements or time periods in art are your favorites and why?
  • 2. Have you done any pieces in the styling of a particular method or movement? If not, do you think you'll try to create one sometime?
  • 3. Are there any movements or time periods you wish artists would create more artworks in the style of?
