After Van Gogh by abelard

Description: Van Gogh, a man of great courage, was one of the first painters to start the break away from the straight-jacket of point perspective. Here, his cypress and whirling sun are linked with Robert Delauney. Delauney was the first modern painter to paint a two-dimensional picture for its own sake, rather than attempt a mere copying of nature or the pursuit of visual illusion. This freedom from the convention of imitating nature was sought after steadily from the time of the invention of the camera, and allowed artists to start breaking free from patrons&pos; demands for immortality. Thus, artists became able to follow wider interests and to return to their role of enhancing the environment; the latter sometimes being referred to as mere decoration by philistines.
