Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Ashcan School - Designates the style and movement of the early 1900s centralized on the portrayal of pedestrian and ordinary aspects of urban living. The style challenges the academic aesthetic of 'art for art's sake' and champions the idea of 'art for life' in the abandonment of learned techniques and the focus on the vitality and idiosyncrasies of everyday street life.
  • drawings - Visual works produced by drawing, which is the application of lines on a surface, often paper, by using a pencil, pen, chalk, or some other tracing instrument to focus on the delineation of form rather than the application of color. This term is often defined broadly to refer to computer-generated images as well.
  • figures - Representations of humans, animals, or mythical beasts, in any medium.
  • men - Refers to male human beings from young adulthood through old age.
  • reading - Using sight or touch to take in the sense of words or symbols in printed or written matter, either silently or aloud.
  • women - Refers to female human beings from young adulthood through old age.
