Nature has been a focal point for countless artists since the beginning of art history and therefore the backbone for many artistic movements. The Romantic era (circa the 1700s) was a period of art history which challenged rational, established ideals of art, often explored through man’s changing relationship with nature. Romantic art was driven by emotion, imagination and extreme mental states.
Equally transcendent of classical attitudes towards art and nature was impressionism. Impressionism was an art movement which arose during the mid-1800s. Rather than focusing on finite detail, impressionists dove into the changing conditions of nature, light and movement in the world around us.
In more modern art, natural forms were and still are used to explore more emotive, sometimes dark, subject matters. The ‘Mother of Modernism’, Georgia O’Keeffe, for example, created simplified yet enlarged flowers and landscapes rich in colour. The openly suggestive nature of her floral shapes, such as in Black Iris (1926), are seen as morphological displays of female sexuality.
