Visual arts is one of the oldest forms of emotionally appealing arts. The viewer can be impressed by color, form and size of an artwork, and artist has a wide variety of tools to depict an object in the most impressing way.

Emotions in art

From the very beginning of fine art painters wanted to show emotions in their works. Think about world most famous portrait — Mona Lisa by Da Vinci. Her mysterious smile excites art critics and common viewers for several centuries, and everyone try to guess what's hiding behind this smile.

Emotional artworks can be created in all existing styles — from classical to more eccentric Dadaism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and other modern styles. The main idea of emotional painting is to communicate feelings of author of people depicted on a painting.

Up to the beginning of 20th century people who were portrayed on paintings didn't show strong emotions. But 20th century with it's achievements and tragedies, extremely fast progress and development of new art forms have brought personal feelings and emotions to the top, and they were widely shown in the art.

Maybe the most arguable work of our time, The Scream by Edward Munch is a pure emotion. We can see a terrified person screaming from fear and despair, with hands on his face. Art historians say that the artists always felt that death is somewhere near and that he would die screaming so the painting (which, by the way, has four versions) is an embodiment of his fears.

From the viewer's point of view

We can also talk about emotional art considering viewers feelings about artwork. Psychologists distinguish several types of reaction on art:

Some artists create paintings with a goal to cause particular emotions (fear, shock, empathy) to bring attention to some problem. Such works are mostly shocking, but a lot of them are dedicated to really serious problems like war, famine or other global problems. Maybe the most famous of such works is Guernica by Picasso which shows the horror of war. When we look on this painting, we almost feel how terrified was an artist because of events he depicted.
