The visual image is one of the most powerful modes of expression, transcending the limits of geographical location, age, gender and background. Indeed, art has long been used as a means of storytelling, from ancient tapestries and mosaics depicting historical events and age-old legends, to detailed still-life oil paintings, portraits and miniatures of loved ones. Moving on to Dadaism and the Avant-Garde, and we see a real shift in style, subject matter and motivation, with art becoming more of a tool to convey political leanings and reflect the mood of contemporary society. Later on, throughout the Expressionist movement, boundaries were redefined yet again, with the works of Henri Matisse, Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso and more stirring up evocative imagery through their use of colour, movement, abstract ideas and playful utilisation of materials and textures. From original art, Mid-century pieces, antique paintings and sculpture, to fine art prints, collectable movie posters and photography, The Bruno Effect curates the highest quality of authentic artwork, from established, verified dealers.
