I read this during the 3rd grade and, I found it really exciting because of his unique power which allowed him to speak to paintings. The way the author (Jenny Nimmo) wrote the book was for it to be a cliffhanger (from what I remember.) The book was also written in a way so that a 3rd grader would be able to read it and understand what is happening. What I really liked about the way it was written was that it made me feel like I was older then I really was. The book also had this way that if you forgot 30 pages worth of info, you would be able to recover and relearn what happened.
It seems very unrealistic and it needs the beautiful finishing that you would find in Vermeer’s paintings. Technology can be used to give finer touch to the art but it cannot bring realistic touch in it. Vermeer’s paintings are more natural and Tim’s is bit plastic. Technology is straight and art is flexible and it allows interpretations. Same is the difference we find in the work of Vermeer and
These actions have shaken the way people look at art and it is all thanks to the brilliant mind of Thomas Harris and his interpretation of William Blake 's The Great Red Dragon. Not only has Blake 's painting appeared in the Hannibal movies but it has appeared in the Hannibal TV series that lasted three seasons. Again Francis Dolarhyde was obsessed with the painting but we get to see a side of him that is not depicted in the movies, which is more psychologically damaged then the audience knew. The Hannibal series displayed the painting in a magazine that Dolarhyde was reading and it is here he studies Blake and soon becomes his own
Next, the figure portrayed in the picture is unique because it is an ordinary person, a hallmark of impressionism. In class, we learned that impressionism was not a style but a movement, and that the one defining element is an impression of a moment and how the artist perceives it. In Horse Bath, the combination of the size and figures produces an intriguing painting. Lastly, when studying this painting, the viewer notices the technical difficulty of the work. The size, perspective, and shadows are all perfectly captured in the picture.
Their many portraits, developed by use of detailed photography and painting, represented a historical diary, and gave way to their creative careers. Close is recognisable because he was creating modern compositions of self portraits and portraits in the 60s, an age when no one was doing this anymore, a time when ART WAS DEAD. Using the large scale was also shocking as it had such impact when placed in a room. Not only did he paint portraits because at the time there was no competition but also because it had a meaning behind it (EXAMPLES, quote, article link); Close suffers from face blindness (Prosopagnosia) and other disabilities but uses them to develop further his “style” (way of work) throughout the years. Frida Kahlo, for the more pain she went through, the more distance she kept from her husband, the more selfish she grew, the more revealing
This book took place during the Renaissance. The renaissance were considered to be the cultural rebirth of Europe. The many arts of life were important including, painting and literature. This really shows in the book because it is very focused on painting and art. Juan expresses many times that painting is interesting to him, but never was supposed to do it, due to slavery.
Diego Velazquez's piece titled 'Las Meninas' represents the art of western civilization. This piece of art was made by oil on canvas in the year 1656. ' Diego Velazquez' decided to draw such a large canvas, describing himself in this group picture .The work performed represents All the work is a weird composition many questions revolve around between fact and fiction, and it produces a certain relationship between the characters and scenes. The size of this piece of art is (3.17×2.74 m) and it is currently located in the Museo Del Prado, Madrid . Given the figures in the picture, the gaze relates to the viewer as it consists of a look without any movement, extends in front of the image, into that cryptic place in the formation of the outer face, and the arrest of numbers regulator in that vacuum.
Nina Irwin is a Kansas City artist, globally known for her watercolor landscapes and ceramic pieces. She has had many shows across the country, and several overseas as well. Originally hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Irwin’s family moved to Kansas City when she was six. As the child of two successful artists, she was surrounded by art throughout her childhood, but did not pursue it as a career until her mid-twenties. She attended college for a variety of disciplines, including archeology, anthropology, and English, and had many interests, though none truly appealed to her as a degree.
Within this book, he wrote that he felt Surrealist artists should “depict a kind of madness or fever in which a thing could look like one thing one moment and like another the next.” To achieve this, several Dali paintings used these ‘double’ images to confuse and disturb people looking at them. An example of where this can be seen within his work is in one of his most prominent pieces of artwork ‘The Persistent of Memory’. This image depicts a watch flopping over what appears to be a strange, paled-coloured rock. Observing the image more closely, nonetheless, it could be suggested that the image is a clear representation of Dali’s personality traits. It is important to remember that his paranoia and anxiety are traits that various people remember him by.
However it lead me to think about something far more then I thought of. I was always fascinated in the relationship that photography and painting had. It is not only because they are both reflected in showing an image, but also because of the history and the materiality. It has always been a very interesting question of mine why does some artists’ think that photography has overtake the painting. Personally, I think photography and painting are both very powerful art material that influenced people in many different ways.
