Art history and popular movements
To discuss the history, it is appropriate to list three important movements and traditions in art. These include Dutch art, contemporary art history of China and impressionism. These three speak more about the aftermath of globalization and the way the art world has benefited from it.
Globalization has offered Dutch art an international arena to explore and express their artworks. The period after globalization that was introduced was regarded as Dutch Golden Age as it offered a new space for Dutch artists to develop their landscape paintings (Law, 2011). From the experiences of Dutch artists, it is evident that the region has gained a positive cultural identity.
Impressionism is yet another movement introduced by the artists and this movement includes unfinished sketches that give the impression about modern life. The independent artists apply varied approaches to the paintings and some famous artworks under impressionism including Camille Pissaro and the sunrise. This happened as the artists demanded for independent styles to express their feelings and perspectives and not limit to predefined themes. This has given a better definition for symbolism. The aesthetic sense has gained cross cultural responses and recognition that widened their achievement levels. Impressionist era also offered the artists a spontaneous nature to project their artworks and it was the period that redefined humanity (Guggenheim, 2017). It is to be noted that impressionism has faced positive impacts after globalization.
Globalization has given a new look to China. Both art and China had new definitions and recognitions. The contemporary art of China has opened up new avenues to explore in intellectual, political and artistic terms. This accelerated development has given opportunity for China to connect with the rest of the world and overcome the authoritarian conditions. Freedom of expression was evident in the conceptual art. These artists were regarded as crucial agents to accelerate the revolution. It is to be said that globalization has given new possibilities and identity to the contemporary art of China.
