Prominent Colors: Black, Grey, White American art began with the flourishing traditions of Native American art, followed closely by Spanish influence as they began colonizing. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, artists primarily painted portraits and some landscapes in a style based mainly on English painting. American artists became increasingly skilled in the early 19th century, concurrently with the establishment of the infrastructure to train artists. From 1820 the Hudson River School began to produce Romantic landscape painting that was original and matched the huge scale of American landscapes. The American Revolution produced a demand for patriotic art, especially history painting, and a parallel devolopment in rural America was the American craft movement, which began as a reaction to the industrail revolution. Developments in modern art in Europe came to America from exhibitions in New York City like the Armory Show in 1913. After World War II, New York replaced Paris as the center of the art world; since then, many American movements have shaped Modern and Postmodern art and today covers a huge range of styles. Giclee (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable excellence that Giclee printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original piece. The result is wide acceptance of Giclee by galleries, museums, and private collectors. Gallery wrap is a method of stretching an artist's canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides and is secured a hidden, wooden frame. This method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting.
