Over the years I’ve compiled a collection of images of art that I find inspiring. I’m particularly interested in artwork that preceded this thing that people call “visionary art.” There was a moment around the late 1800’s when art took a turn from outwards representations to inwards exploration. This was the birth of Modern Art (which, incidentally, seems to have “ended” as a movement in the 50’s. So much for modernity!). Modern Art encompassed all number of motifs and approaches – Symbolism, Cubism, Futurism, Pointilism, Surrealism… So many ISMs!
Below is a link to small online gallery of some of this inspiring artwork. I’ve included some commentary with some of the pieces to share what it is about them that I love. I’ll post a few other galleries soon as there are other visionaries who were creating at the turn of the century that often get lost in the annals of art history.
I'd love to hear from you. Send me a message here and
I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.
