STYLES OF PICTORIAL COMPOSITION IN MODERN ART


This investigation introduces the researcher and the Arab scholar to one of the most important cultural stages in modern world history. It is a re-creational criticism of the cultural influences that emerged through many of the inquiries and studies in Arabic literature addressing the varieties of European modernity. The period of modernity was the beginning of a culture of colonialism, which corresponded with other cultural tendencies that served to form a social, political and economic reality in eastern geographies, which joined Arab states and territories. The analysis of the visual culture associated with the development of the city in modern narratives coincided with the documentary experiences of the art of photography, which had a clear impact on the art of oil painting. At this point, the study used the historical descriptive approach to analyze the evolution of the relationship between photography and oil painting through investigating the methods of artists in the construction of the artwork and the principles that have coincided with the process of the emergence of photography in the stage of modernity. In the same context, the study analyzed the resulting differences in the composition in the pictorial works through a series of views of various researchers in historical criticism, who used the pictorial composition as the subject of their research.
