hey all for english at school(yes, english not ART) we are studying how ppl in the 19th Century broke free of the restrictive beliefs of the era--I can include an artwork as a related text to use in my exam paper
so does anyone know of any artists from 1800-1900 who broke the widely held beliefs of the era to satisfy their individual needs through an artwork?
I've looked in the library but its kind of convoluted language that doesnt help unless I have more of a specific target for who to look for
sorry I know its a boring question , etc. but I really need HELP from anyone who has studied art history or has a good idea of artists of that era. I'm thinking something to do with the beginnings of modern art or the avant garde
