Overall, this painting is very successful. It caught my eye and my first reaction was that I wanted to hang it up in my room. Jacquette’s use of rearranging her original subject, successfully using visual elements, and expressing a meaning that is inspiring to the world around us is a great example of a working piece of art. Tokyo Street with Pachinko Parlor II by Yvonne Jacquette is important because it breaks down the limitations of people always wanting you to create artwork on exactly what you see, and opens the doors to imagination and perspective. I recommend that everyone should go this piece and all of her other gorgeous pieces in the Harn
This painting fits under art and beauty because I believe this portrait is very detailed it shows her beauty through art. I compare this portrait to “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci because, they are both portraits of women who were considered to be beautiful and role models for young girls back in their times. Mona Lisa painting have more vibrant details. The paintings both has a lot of details about their beauty, their background, and the clothing they have
When the viewer observes the great detail and realistic colors entwined in the painting, it is seen as a work of art. The work obviously has so much input and time involved, along with the devotion Tim had to the project, it is a wonderful piece. The photographic resemblance leave people in awe. Vermeer was even considered one the the greatest painters because of this. When the idea that tools were used to create this effect, the majestic wonder is almost striped from the oil painting.
Which, to me makes the art far more intimate and personal than other styles. Marla was driven purely by her love of painting and seeing that in the videos made me want to understand more pieces of Modern Art. On the other hand this film also made me realized that I could never just “view” works of Modern Art without at least story of why the artist did it. To me, it loses its value once the story attached to it is no longer
Carmen Calvo is one of the most creative, influential, and eccentric contemporary artists of today's Hispanic culture. With works such as No es lo que parace ("It's not what it looks"), Calvo has certainly earned the right to call herself a true artist. With early influences of Post-Minimalism as well as Pop Art, Calvo has managed to establish her own distinctive identity via the usage of visual language. What makes her work so eccentric is her ability to take one object that generally has very deep associations with history and manipulate it using mixed media, or multiple mediums, to have a completely different meaning. In one of her paintings, for example, there is a boy reading a book.
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were often compared to a dove and an elephant. Kahlo and Rivera did make a strange pairing simply looking at appearance. However, there was a unique connection between them that was indescribable. Frida and Diego had a strong love for each other, and this love is what inspired one another to become better artists and critical thinkers. Both are iconic figures and are recognized for their unique lives and artistic styles.
The Renaissance was a period of rebirth for the arts and reintroduced elements of Greek and Roman tradition to Italy’s once modern art style. One of these artistic traditions was the nude figure originally popularized by the Romans to glorify the human body. This along with the ideas of humanism created depictions of heroic, idealistic people who people at the time tried to thrive and be like. However, while these Renaissance peoples emerged in art, many female figures were drawn and designed in specific ways unlike that of men, a characteristic of art coined as “the period eye.” Originally identified by Michael Baxandall, the period eye referred to the way women were drawn in art during the Renaissance period, “with demure actions, their legs
De La Cruz was careful in the way he painted the garments. It can be deduced that he spent a good amount of time painting the individual textures, patterns, flowers, and lacework. This great attention to detail shows that the 17th Century painters loved details and thought it was important to drawing attention to their work. The rich, delicate and carefully painted garments with textures and pattern lets the viewers get lost in their work as they take note of each stitch or design. And finally the way de La Cruz painted the fortune teller’s face is to be admired.
I choose her because she was a brilliant female in a society where they wanted women to be beautiful, submissive wives, and mothers. Frida was a modern woman, but her art had an indigenous background. The most familiar genre was a self-portrait and a dramatic view of herself that I liked. Frida's art was controversial and attracted attention. Frida was capable of showing her view of the world.
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see,” explained Edgar Degas. This is indisputably true about all forms of art. It can be a painting that endows one with a feeling of joy, a sculpture that takes one’s breath away, or a film that makes all shed tears of sadness then of happiness. The art that moves us all begins somewhere in the minds of visionaries, artists and directors. It is a director’s job to craft emotions in a short two-hour window, and often times they are successful and deserve awards and glory for their efforts.
