Artists who changed art history
Aimed at people over 15 years old | Beginner level  

From the first decades of the fourteenth century in Europe the search for perspective we will see highly developed in the Renaissance, to then observe the changes of light with Tenebrism
of the seventeenth century, so that later the play of light and shadow reached its exaggeration with the Rococo Baroque. At the dawn of the XNUMXth century, new trends began the breakdown of the baroque tradition and in the second half of the XNUMXth century, an optics were sought that would lead to Impressionism. Already in the twentieth century the dissolution of the realistic image will converge in new languages, where Mexico makes its appearance with Muralism and in the post-war internationalization, art will reach conceptual interpretations.
