Essay 1 Gesture has played a very crucial role in the development of modern art The gestures alone can tell us which time period a painting is from In such paintings like The Night Cafe and The Scream gesture shows us what kind of message we should be getting when observing the paintings The gesture shows us how we are supposed to be feeling agitated and having a sense of isolation and fear In many other works of art gesture has played a very important role It tells us what the artist was feeling at that time and what type of message we are supposed to be getting Henri Matisse was the most well-known Fauvist painter He was also well-known for his very bold use of color in all his works Towards the beginning of his career he adopted techniques from the impressionistic painters and tried to modify them repeatedly He would try to modify these techniques by using broader brushstrokes throughout his paintings In his painting Open Window Collioure 1905 Matisse makes it look almost as an impressionistic painting He uses very sketchy brushstrokes You can also see that he was not being very careful with his brush and hand movements The paint seems to blotted on to the canvas He was obviously not trying to be precise in this painting All the gestures he uses are trying to capture the first essence of the scene he is painting If you look close enough to the painting you can actually see which direction his hand was moving while painting this picture Matisse used a version of Impressionist brushstroke for all the natural elements of the scene Also if you are at a close up of this painting it looks like a bunch of brightly colored brushstrokes all splotched together But from a distant view it looks like a painting with every gesture put in its place for a reason to create this painting
