A century ago, British artists played an important role in the growth of landscape art, which did not make it into the mainstream until artists like JW Turner, John Constable, and Thomas Gainsborough convinced art lovers and scholars alike that it could rival portraits and allegorical works that used to dominate European art. While the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood came along in the 19th century, they still managed to produce some highly impressive portrait artists, such as JW Waterhouse, who painted Lady of Shalott, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman-Hunt, and Lord Leighton. They are known for their literary-inspired depictions of attractive women in thoughtful poses. Their paintings are still popular today as reproduction prints and posters among fans in Europe and North America. Jadé Fadojutimi is known as a rising London painter.

Through new contemporary movements, art has reached the masses, which has helped to introduce new artists and paintings to the country that are worthy of international recognition. Modern British painting began when painters realized the potential of modernism for artistic freedom. British modern artists, realizing the possibilities that artists like Cezanne and other modernist masters had demonstrated, looked to their own form of expressive, modern and direct painting. Britain's artists created a style of art that was direct, forward-looking, futuristic, and overtly modern. French impressionism, cubism, surrealism, and international style, free of convention stimulated British modern artists to explore their own interpretations. By creating innovative, individual and overtly British paintings, early London impressionists like Walter Sickert paved the way for a long line of creative modern artists who absorbed cubism and futurism on the continent to develop Vorticism and its aggressive geometric forms. The Bloomsbury Group advanced British art after the First World War, with abstraction becoming more important to British modern artists in the 1930s. It was Ben Nicholson and the St Ives artists who ushered in more modern, abstract paintings with a focus on form. Following World War II, modern landscape painters such as Terry Frost, Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron and Ivon Hitchens created highly individual, abstract and expressive paintings from the pre-war St Ives tradition. A collection of artists working in post-war London, including Lucien Freud, Francis Bacon, Peter Andrews, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, and Howard Hodgkin, painted expressive figurative paintings, portraits, and responses to their surroundings in highly creative and individual ways. Altogether known as the School of London. London artists’ famous paintings are available for sale like Jadé Fadojutimi for sale. Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud were/are interested in their experience of reality first and foremost. Abstraction is less of a concern, and indeed their work can be seen in contrast to that of the American abstract expressionists of the time. During the mid-1950s, Beaux Arts Quartet painters produced social realist art based on everyday life, known as Kitchen Sink art. In the 1960s, British artists such as David Hockney and Peter Blake were influenced by American Pop art. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, painting moved towards conceptual art, marking the end of the Modern British period. There are still many modern British artists producing wonderful work after long, distinguished careers, such as Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, and Lucian Freud.
Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world.

Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
