As the work of Sigmund Freud became more popular, artists became fascinated by the subconscious mind
By 1924, a surrealist manifesto stated some specific connections between the subconscious mind and painting
Surrealist works were thought to be created by “pure psychic automatism”
Goal was to merge reason and unreason, consciousness and unconscious into an “absolute reality – a super reality”
Supposedly, a dream could be transferred directly from the unconscious mind of the painter to canvas without control or conscious interruption

Until the 20th century, American painting only adapted European trends
In the early 20th century, strong and vigorous American painting emerged and it encompasses several styles
O’Keefe (1887-1986) proved to be one of the most original artists of the century
Her imagery draws on a wide variety of objects that she abstracts in a uniquely personal way
From 1919-1925, Harlem, a neighborhood in upper Manhattan, became the international capital of African American culture
Painters, sculptors, musicians, poets, and novelists joined in a remarkable artistic outpouring
The movement took up several themes: glorification of the black American’s African heritage, the tradition of black folklore, and the daily life of black people
Harlem Renaissance artists celebrated black history and culture and defined a visual vocabulary for African Americans
W.E.B. Du Bois, Alain Locke, and Charles Spurgeon spearheaded the movement
Aaron Douglas (1899-1979) was arguably the foremost painter of the Harlem Renaissance
He explores a palette of muted tones
He was particularly known for his illustrations and cover designs for books by African American authors
Abstract – shapes sometimes unrecognizable
No overly notable artist – lots of names, but not as popular as the painting
Henry Moore – Double Oval
David Smith – Cubi VI
Otto Gutfreund - Cellist
Tony Smith – Free Ride

I will stop it with just a few minutes left in class. At that point I will give you a question about the video to answer on your notes (WATCH – you don’t get the question until I STOP it!)
