Sometimes when you are using Midjourney, you may have a clear picture of what you want in your head but the words needed to describe it don't come to mind.
To help with this, I have created a list of prominent art styles with examples so that you can always know what type of art you want to produce in Midjourney.
A style that aims to depict subjects with a high degree of accuracy and detail, often focusing on everyday life.
Known for its emphasis on capturing the fleeting effects of light and colour, often in outdoor scenes.
Artists in this style built upon Impressionism, often using bold colours, geometric shapes, and distorted perspectives.
Characterized by the use of geometric shapes and fragmented forms to represent subjects from multiple viewpoints.
A movement that explores the irrational and dreamlike, often featuring unexpected juxtapositions and fantastical elements.
Artists express emotions and concepts through non-representational, abstract forms, often with bold brushwork and gestural marks.
Celebrates popular culture and consumerism by incorporating everyday objects and icons into art.
Emphasizes simplicity, clean lines, and a reduction of elements to their essential forms.
A period marked by a revival of interest in classical art and humanism, characterized by realistic portrayals and perspective.
Known for its dramatic and ornate style, often used to depict grandeur and emotion.
A decorative and ornamental style often associated with pastel colours, curves, and lighthearted themes.
Revives classical Greek and Roman art forms, characterized by simplicity, order, and idealized forms.
Artists use bold and non-naturalistic colours to create emotionally charged works.
Characterized by flowing lines, organic forms, and intricate designs, often used in architecture and decorative arts.
Artists emphasize emotions and subjective experiences through distorted and exaggerated forms.
A movement that emphasizes the use of industrial materials and geometric forms, often in abstract and utilitarian works.
Non-representational art that explores colour, form, and composition to convey meaning and emotion.
Focuses on the idea or concept behind the artwork, often challenging traditional notions of aesthetics.
A broad category encompassing a wide range of styles and approaches, reflecting the diversity of today's art world.
Now you have a better and clearer idea of what some of the biggest art movements were and what they looked like, you can take that knowledge and prompt Midjourney to create images inspired by these amazing art movements.
