Introduction My task was to choose four artists whose particular journey in life has influenced their artwork as a way of finding meaning for their pain life experience or heightened emotions The four artists I picked were Vincent Van Gogh Frida Kahlo Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet In the assignment to come I have attempted to compare and contrast the way the artists approach their subjects and mentioned how their working methods and styles differ by referring to different examples Also I have offered interpretations of the paintings by arguing whether the art is between the artwork and the world global or just artwork and the artist personal and then concluded by stating how these art works comment on or increase our knowledge of our world and ourselves Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Goghs particular journey in life heavily influenced his artwork as a way of finding meaning for his pain life experiences and heightened emotions Van Gogh has often been hailed as the essential expressionist painter where Expressionism is an art form in which the very style itself and the symbols that the artist uses are meant to express his innermost feelings on the subject Encarta 2001 Encyclopedia His artwork covers a range of moods over the years and his canvases can be depicted as mirrors into his troubled soul Van Gogh lived a troubled life where he once described his childhood as cold gloomy and sterile et al World Book Encyclopedia His problems were numerous First of all he didnt have the social skills to be happy in his personal life He had a few disastrous relationships with women before sinking deep into depression His paintings during his troubled romances and heartbreaks were filled with darkness and pain reflecting his inner sorrow
