In 1986, the year before his death, Andy Warhol continued his appropriation of classic American icons and images with his "Cowboys and Indians" series, a portfolio of ten graphic screenprints representing traditional figures and figureheads of the American West. Here, Warhol intersperses recognizable portraits of well-known American "heroes"-- Teddy Roosevelt, Annie Oakley, General George Custer, and John Wayne, --with less familiar Native American images and motifs in his ironic commentary on Americans' collective mythologizing of the historic West. These works possess many of Warhol's stylistic hallmarks, such as his characteristic linear reiteration and his use of famous images resonant in the collective American consciousness.

Abstract art also known as mixed media art, has been around since the start. Splashes of color and
primitive linework can be seen in works by some of the best known museum artists and when the work
is organic and clean, it can provoke thoughts and emotions in a similar way to realistic or impressionistic art.
A good example of a successful abstract artist is Jackson Pollock who died at an early age due to a car
accident, his memorial was held at the Museum of Modern Art. For an artist, being rememberd at MOMA is
as good as it gets.
Today we find that interior design is relying more and more on abstract or mixed media because the client
does not have to worry about images that might influence or affect viewers in a negative way.
Colors are now being researched to find what affect they have on humans. Blue as an example is said to be
an inhibitor to hunger or "good for dieting"
An example of a successful Los Angeles abstract painter is Clara Berta who holds regular events, shows and
has work in a prominant Los Angeles Art gallery.
The nice thing about abstract, you can drip, throw or brush your way to success!

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn 15 July 1606– 4 October 1669) was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and the most important in Dutch history. His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age when Dutch Golden Age painting, although in many ways antithetical to the Baroque style that dominated Europe, was extremely prolific and innovative, and gave rise to important new genres in painting.
Oscar-Claude Monet 14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.

NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral
CAPE CORAL, FL - $20 million in world renowned artwork is on display right here in Southwest Florida. Picasso, Dali and Warhol - those are all names you can see in a new art exhibit in Cape Coral.
"It's probably the most financially valuable commercial exhibition that's taken place in Southwest Florida history in a fine art gallery," Modern to Pop and Beyond Exhibition curator Eric Ian Hornak Spoutz said.
The world renowned artwork now hangs at Gallery 928 in the Westin Cape Coral Resort.
"We have very special security systems within the space here, not unlike what you would find in a museum," Spoutz said.
It's an exhibition of modern to pop art and beyond that showcases dozens of famous photographs and famous paintings.
"This is the last photo shoot that was taken of John Lennon before he was assassinated," Spoutz said. "These are by Salvador Dali who's one of the founding surrealist artists."
And it is all for show and for sale; with some of the most expensive pieces selling for upwards of $4 million.
"It's absolutely incredible to have a piece of history like this here," Spoutz said.
Exhibition creators say the big price tags will bring buyers from around the world to Southwest Florida.
"People purchase it for social and political status. Or, of course in many cases, they purchase it because they just love it," Spoutz said.
The exhibit is free to see. It starts Friday night at 6 p.m. and will run until January 2, 2015.
