The historical painting I chose for the comparison of Arthur Keller’s painting is another painting done by Arthur I Keller; illustrated for 54-40 or Fight by Emerson Hough, in 1909. Arthur I Keller is a very natural, elegant style painter, with an eye for natural beauty. Keller’s many paintings express intricate detail, and genuine quality. Although I picked two water color paintings out of Arthur Keller’s many collections of paintings, he also uses charcoal, acrylics, oils, and pastels to create other works of art.

The visual appeal of the renovated city, along with other factors such as the high quality of the art schools, caused Impressionism to take off in Paris around this time (Thomson 2000: 19-20). Impressionist painters wanted to capture the present, not historical or idealistic scenes. For this reason, they painted boulevards, parks, train stations, and other places that were important to modern Paris life. Human figures were important subjects in their paintings, since one of the most effective ways to depict modern life is to show the people living in it.
Picasso's creation of cubism led to many of the abstract art styles utilized in the modern day world. Pablo Picasso, Spanish artist extraordinaire, had many artistic influences in his life, including Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and the infamous School of Fine Arts in Paris. Picasso contributed to artistic individuality by not following the works of other artists and encouraged other artists to explore art through the use of just one basic colour or one certain colour grouping. He made this contribution when he created the paintings of the Blue Period and Rose Period. Picasso also contributed to artistic creativity when he assisted in creating a new style known as cubism, which he explored through different mediums including sculptures and collages in his paintings.
