Figurative Art

Jan - 25 - 2013

A small description

Figurative art describes artwork – particularly paintings and sculptures – which are clearly derived from real object sources, and are therefore by definition representational. The term “figurative art” is often taken to mean art which represents the human figure, or even an animal figure.

However it can easily be said that paintings with figures as main components can be called figurative paintings. It’s easy to see how some of these different styles are closely related. In other words a painting can belong to a couple of the styles listed. A painting can be figurative, representational and figurative expressionism at the same time!

George Bellows, among many others, is a good example of Figurative Art.
