    Please Help Me With This Question.? As usual with well-crafted films, the opening frames of North by Northwest (designed by graphic artist Saul Bass) do more than just catch our attention. From the geometric title images to our first glimpse of Thornhill to his arrival at the hotel, a great deal of background information in conveyed. What do we learn in the first few minutes of the film? Is any of the coming action foreshadowed by what we watch?

    Art History: What Influenced Art/artists In The 1950’s? What 1950 events etc influenced an art style created in 1950 ? I was thinking of rock and roll but I don’t know what to write about that? Thanks.

      Art and architecture in the 1950s took on a whole new shape. Experimental artists started the abstract expressionism movement in the 1950s. Many influential artists came from this time period, including Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Clyfford Still and Andy Warhol. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright forever changed the way people around the world viewed buildings. View the monumental pieces of art and architecture, as well as learn more with the resources below:

      Art Influences of the 1950’s:::
      The 1950’s was a time of new artistic trends in photography, graphics, music and fashion all changing and inspiring many to day. Artists such as Richard Avedon, Saul bass, Elvis Presley and Christian Dior all changed art in their own unique way.
      Richard Avedon changed both the fashion world and photograph with his unique style and bold choices. Avedon’s unique way of capturing his subject’s personality and using strong in front of white backdrops creating dark outlines on his subjects bringing great contrast to his images. He also showed sophistication and control in his portraits by brought in unusual elements to his images given a more sophisticated feel toward them, such as bringing in exotic animals in fashion shots. The unique qualities of Avedon’s portraits in which many graced Vogue magazine changing its out look in photography ever since.
      Saul Bass has been considered to be one of the most famous graphic designers of his time. Bass’s unique designs consisted of many graphic shapes and colors. He designed logos like the famous AT&T logo and the movie poster of The Man with the Golden Arm. Bass’s designs have influenced many modern designs of today both influencing art and inspiring new designers.
      Elvis Presley was a big influence on the start of rock-n-roll. His inspiration for his music was brought upon due to combination of country, R&B, to Gospel. As a young child he was very aware of different genres of music and was the start of a new genre changing both the pop culture and the music of the time. Not only was he a huge music star but also was an iconic figure of the 1950’s both as a music maker and trendsetter.
      After WWII Christian Dior became the fashion designer of the time. He changes in the fashion world with his unique, classy, but yet sassy designs. His designs were famous for showing women’s hourglass like silhouettes and were even the start of that new trend. He believed women had gorgeous figures with their curved shapes, which could be shown off with the proper clothes. As his fame grew and became popular many Hollywood actresses became interested in his designs, which came to be later know as the Old Hollywood Glam look. Dior not only changed fashion but also has brought upon a wave of classical, but yet sassy beauty to the fashion world.
      Artists like Richard Avedon; Saul bass, Elvis Presley and Christian Dior not only changed art and even pop culture of the 50’s but also has became the inspiration of many to day. With out their contributions we wouldn’t have rock-n-roll or fashion with such class and elegance, all these contributions were brought upon us thanks to theses great artists of the 50’s. (2)

      Director Saul Bass complained in interviews that the film was re-edited after previews by 20th Century Fox, radically altering the ending of the film which consisted of surreal images presented in a montage. The montage was supposed to suggest that the two surviving characters were altered by the ants creating the next step in evolution for humanity and insects. Parts of the original montage sequence were used in the theatrical trailer for the film
