Literature Art

Language arts is often seen as something completely different from fine art. However, literature art proves these two creative pursuits are merely two sides of the same coin. From retro art prints to illustrative paintings, many artists combine the clarity of words with the emotive power of images.

Illustrative literature art is diverse and can include anything from pictures of books and bibliophiles, as seen in 'A Young Girl Reading' by Jean-Honore Fragonard, to more surreal works like the romantic musing of William Black in his fantasy art. However, these works include words as one of their primary subject, whether it is in the form of a book or in the form of actual typography.

In modern times, retro art prints have regained interest in combining the two art forms of literature and painting. These graphic prints are highly emotive and redefine both creative categories. John Clarks graphic retro paintings like 'There Had Never Been Another' and 'I Can't Explain' show how these two mediums are stronger together than apart. His black and white works flow typography and graphic design together flawlessly and are just as emotive as works by more traditional artists.

Literature art isn't only appropriate for adults, however. Many illustrative prints are for children. These works are generally simple, flat paintings that identify the subject. Prints like 'Monkey' by Jenn Ski are typical of this category. The purpose of these illustrative artworks are to help develop association between word and meaning, a necessary trait for children that are just learning to read or explore the world around them.
