What are the characteristics of futurism art?
Futurism developed to glorify the urban life as well as machinery/industrialization. Futurism employs techniques of Divisionism (see Seurat's artwork!), Cubism features (specifically the analysis of energy), dynamism, urban subject matters, and depiction of movement. If you look at Umberto Boccioni's Unique Forms of Continuity in Space and also his The City Rises painting, you will get a pretty good idea of Futurism!

Humans shown worshiping gods was not a characteristic of Hindu art.
Concentration and creative
The Sumerian style of art included a composite figure, and a hieratic scale. Also, their style included registers, and specific details of images like skirts for the men and e…xaggerated eyes. There was not really any sense of depth in their art, as well, with nothing in the background of the images they constructed. Their art had a sense of abstraction.
Characteristics of art deco are traight lines, zig-zag lines, sun-rays, geometric shapes, bright colors, and an overall 'even' look.
Medieval art, like every single aspect of life, changed and evolved during the very long medieval period. In a sense there is no such thing as "medieval art", since the art pr…oduced in the 11th century is totally unlike that of the 13th or the 15th centuries, any more than the art of the Old Masters resembles the art of today (although both are historically classed as "modern"). Taking just one particular period: in the 12th century in Anglo-Norman England, manuscript art was at first characterized by plain blocks of color for backgrounds, often with elaborate patterned borders; by distinctive black outlines of all elements, simple but effective drapery of clothing, very naive facial features, "posed" postures, symbolic hand gestures, the omission of unnecessary detail, flat coloring and stylized plants, trees and buildings. The range of colors used was limited to muted reds, yellows, blues and greens. In the most precious manuscripts backgrounds were entirely of gold leaf. Towards the end of the 12th century things had evolved: coloring began to show definite of hands, faces and other elements; drapery became much more elaborate; more detail was included and the range of colors increased. Gold was still used for backgrounds, particularly in religious scenes. Wall painting in the 12th century is an entirely different matter, with different techniques and method of application. To emphasize the developments that took place in art in the Middle Ages, the links below take you to English manuscript pictures from the 12th and 14th centuries:
To add the some of the characteristics of Art Nouveau's actual art on canvas is: -An artist should work on everything from architecture to furniture design so that art would… become a part of everyday life. By making beauty and harmony a part of everyday life, artists make people's lives better. This approach has been represented in painting, architecture -typical flat, decorative patterns -nickname 'the noodle style' -flat, decorative patterns, intertwined organic forms of stems or flowers -curving lines characterize Art Nouveau, right-angled forms are also typical -Principal subjects are lavish birds and flowers, insects and polymorphic femme fatale -Abstract lines and shapes are used widely as a filling for recognizable subject matter. -beautiful objects of art, but not necessarily very functional. a very cute web page is very helpful; www.huntfor.com/arthistory/c19th/artnouveau.htm Hope it helps you :-
Rococo art focuses on the lavishness and indulgence of the artistocracy. Paintings are whimsical and have recognizable (and overt) erotic themes. Use of pastel colors and flow…ing brushstrokes was also popular. Rococo is a style of 18th century French art and interior design. Rococo rooms were designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and tapestry complementing architecture, reliefs, and wall paintings. Painters used delicate colors and curving forms. Some works show a sort of naughtiness.

Renaissance art characteristics were really different from the Medieval times. Depth was added, and along with depth was proportion. They no longer made a figure or person in …a piece look the same size as someone or something that was supposed to be in a different spot. The study of the Human Body really influenced the pieces of different artists and sculptors. 'David' by Michelangelo is a prime example, as you can see the distinct muscles in his arms, and body. Dualism (Good vs Evil, Heaven and Hell, etc), was something that was portrayed often in different pieces. 'Judith and Holofernes' by Donatello is a good example of this. It shows Judith (good) killing Holofernes (evil). Symmetry is another aspect commonly used in renaissance art. DaVinci's 'The Last Supper' shows how each side of the table is symmetrical with the number of people on each side, as well as the windows in the back, and the panels on the side.

Futurism was an avant-garde movement which was launched in Italy, in 1909, although parallel movements arose in Russia, England and elsewhere. It was one of the first importan…t modern art movements not centred in Paris - one reason why it is not taken seriously in France. Futurism exalted the dynamism of the modern world, especially its science and technology. Futurist ideology influenced all types of art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music. However, most of its major exponents were painters. It ceased to be an aesthetic force in 1915, shortly after the start of the First World War, but lingered in Italy until the 1930s. The Futurist painters were searching for new visual approaches to express the typical character of modern time, especially in the modern city. The movements and speed of trams, cars and the people in the cities was for them the challenge to visualize in a way that the spectator on his turn could experience this. They went even further than that. Futurist painters wanted to pull the spectator in the painting, you could say. They didn't accept the distance between the art and the spectator any more, and this was their vivid critic on Cubism. the Futurist wanted to push the spectator to move. Another important aspect of Futurism was the new sensing that everything in the world is connected and mixed. They wanted to destroy the boundaries between things which kept them too separated. Here a quote of Boccioni and other painters: "The sixteen people around you in a rolling omnibus are in turn and at the same time one, ten, four, three; they are motionless and they change places; they come and go, bound into the street, are suddenly swallowed up by the sunshine, then come back and sit before you., like persistent symbols of universal vibration. How often have we not seen upon the cheek of the person with whom we are talking the horse which we passes at the end of the street. from 'Manifesto of Futurist Painters', Boccioni, Carrà, Russolo, 1912; as quoted in "Futurism", ed. By Didier Ottinger; Centre Pompidou / 5 Continents Editions, Milan, 2008, p. 146 More quotes you find with the links
