Edouard Manet
vs.
Edgar Degas
Édouard Manet (1832-1883) was a French painter who was one of the first 19th-century artists to paint modern life. He was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Modernism. His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass caused great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create the future French Impressionism Movement.
Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French artist famous for his paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings. He is especially identified with the subject of dance. He is regarded as one of the founders of French Impressionism, He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his rendition of dancers, racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation.

Paul Gauguin
vs.
Vincent Van Gogh

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a French post-Impressionist artist. Gauguin is recognized for his experimental use of color and style that were distinctly different from Impressionism. Towards the end of his life he spent ten years in French Polynesia where he made his most famous work. His paintings lovingly depict the people and the landscapes from that region.

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work had far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His output includes portraits, still life, landscapes, and the French country side. His short and agonized life was expressed in his work. His spontaneous use of vivid colors, broad brushstrokes, and emotive subject matter made his work unique and recognizable the world over.

Pablo Picasso

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was a French artist and sculptor who is known for his use of dramatic color and his fluid, flat surfaces. In the 20th century, Pablo Picasso and Matisse became leading figures in the visual arts. Their ideas were adapted to collage, paper cutouts, ceramics, costuming, and stage design.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was a Spanish-born painter and sculptor who lived in France for most of his life. Picasso revolutionized the Art World, initially with his Cubist Works, and later, with his wide variety of ever changing styles. His experimentation with different theories, techniques, and ideas changed the way Art, Music, Literature, and Architecture would be interpreted forever after.

Jackson Pollock
vs.
Willem de Kooning

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an influential American painter and a major figure in the American abstract expressionist movement. During his lifetime, Pollock became the Toast of New York because of his original “drip” paintings. He was notorious for his volatile personality and his struggle with alcoholism. In 1945, he married the artist Lee Krasner, who became an important influence on his career and on his legacy.
Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) was a Dutch-American abstract expressionist artist who was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He moved to New York City in 1927. In the post-World War II era, de Kooning painted in a style that came to be referred to as Abstract expressionism or “action painting.” He was a significant member of a group who became known as The New York School.
