Cultures

162 Discovered artists
Outside of Western art, the cultural stranger, creator, or creator has always been a fascinating subject. Not only did it provide insights into unknown worlds, it was also a source of inspiration for Western artists. On the other hand, western aspects were also incorporated into original products of foreign art traditions over time. Spiritual and artistic expressions come together in most of the traditional cultural products of foreign countries and ancient times. They shape mythological world views as well as social regulations and specific values. Plastic products, such as African masks, are also commodities for rituals, the artful ancient Egyptian amulets were attributed protective functions. Visual representations are as individual as the cultures themselves. However, special thematic conditions and expressions emerge in them time and again. For example, in Japanese illustrations, natural views play an important role. Spaces on the screen deliberately oppose concentrations of figures or things. The calligraphy of the Orient testifies to the ban on the image of Islam, thereby developing into an art form with independent image content. In contrast to the impact of Western culture on foreign art traditions, Western artists drew attention to distant societies in their own works. Many brought with them impressions of their travels as pictures and drawings or incorporated them into their depictions. The post-impressionist Paul Gauguin, for example, painted scenarios in reminiscences of Polynesian culture and nature. Overall, however, such illustrative information can not be considered documentary. It was not until the advent of photography in the early 19th century that authentic images of exotic cultural products were created.
