Styles & Periods
Regionalism

In the 1930s, after the alienation of war and the economic hardships of the Depression, art in America became more conservative, reacting against the principles of European Modernism. Regionalism, one of the two main styles of painting at this time, centered on “American” themes, and in particular, scenes from the Midwest. The Regionalists’ work is figurative and representational, rejecting any overtly abstract influences. Nationalism is dominant in these paintings that strove to establish a new style that reflected uniquely American concerns. Small towns, families living on farms, and the American landscape were glorified, as if propaganda to feed a tired nation. Thomas Hart Benton was a leader among the Regionalists. He created murals based on sketches he produced while traveling extensively throughout the United States. While he dominated the style, his work had many aspects of pre-war international art. Another major figure was Grant Wood, whose American Gothic became one of America’s most celebrated paintings.

This is decent paint for the studio with long lasting color.
- Art by Marti in North Texas
these are my my favorite pearlescent paints. I have been looking to replace my old set. The paints are creamy and so sparkly when mixed with little water. I love to create cards and these are the best.

In addition to my first review about krylon fusion clear u v protection ; the directions say that if you use a krylon base that the clear will go on white and after 24 hours it will turn clear . Well 4 days later my plastic gun stock is still a pretty pearl white ; not the neat camo paint job I intended . I gave it a far sight more than 24 hours ; I guess it's back to the drawing board !!!!!
