Question from p35 of the course guide
“What do you understand by the term ‘style’ as applied to art? Before you read any further, make some brief notes in your learning log and return to this question when you’ve got to the end of this section.”
I think ‘style’ refers to an art movement which the work (not necessarily a painting) sort of fits into. For example if I paint something that looks a bit Picassoish I might say the style is cubist.
After reading the section:
I guess I was part right. I forgot about a personal style that an artist can have.
“Style can refer either to an artist’s personal ‘handwriting’ or to a group of formal characteristics or ideas that link a number of artists together. “
