Museum of naive art

In different periods of time, naive art flared up in different corners of the planet. One of the fundamental features of naive art is the desire for symbolism and detail. Artists of this direction carefully recreate the world around them, bringing maximum details to their paintings and often using symbols that have a personal meaning.

Before the birth of naive art in Europe, the tendencies of this style could be detected in the works of such artists as Edouard Manet. At the end of the 19th century, his works, such as "Breakfast on the Grass" and "Olympia", caused flurries of criticism, but at the same time they predicted the main features of naive art - audacity in the choice of themes and the absence of canons. The very concept of "naive art" became popular thanks to the French artist Henri Rousseau. Despite the lack of art education, Rousseau created amazing paintings, full of painted details and fantastic elements. His work reflected informality and freedom from artistic standards, which attracted the attention and support of a circle of avant-garde artists.

Naive art is not just a style, it is a philosophy and a way of looking at the world, remaining true to its roots and traditions. Let's consider several key features of this unique artistic direction:

  • Naive art is distinguished by its simplicity of forms and images. However, this simplicity hides a deep complexity of meaning.

  • Artists of this style use bright colors, simple lines and shapes to convey complex ideas, emotions and symbols. Naive artists seek to express their emotions and inner world through bright and rich colors. Their works are often full of joy, hope and childlike delight, which makes this style especially appealing.

  • Unlike classical art schools, naive art often ignores the rules of perspective. Artists create space and composition based on their inner perception, not on academic norms.
