Art History Inspiration

I am currently taking History of visual communication, a class for graphic designs and illustration majors. When I start projects or new ideas, I rely on inspiration to fuel my creative brain. I am not the type of creative who can pull amazing and unique ideas from their head. I am the type of designer who does best when I look at really successful pieces and pick out elements and mash them all together to make my own. That is how I get most of my best work.

Here is just some of my favorite artists and pieces that I have been exposed to in this history class that I really enjoyed.

William Morris, English, and apart of the arts and crafts movement around 1850’s.

Alphonse Mucha, apart of the art Nouveau movement in late 1890-1910.

All of these are quite old in terms of modern art, but still extremely successful pieces. I enjoy my art history class just for the fact that get exposed to art I don’t think I would find on my own. I think the more great talent I am exposed to and can draw inspiration from, the better.
