Unlike many of the expatriate artists of the time, Chase went to study in Munich instead of Paris, where he looked to the past for inspiration and “adopted the sturdy, direct brushwork, muddy palette, and realism influenced by Frans Hals and Diego Velázquez,” which became characteristic of his work. What is most obvious in Mrs. Chase in Prospect Park is this darker palette, for nearly the entire painting is composed of variations of brown and green, with black and white to break up the murky
Cage was well known for his 4’33” concert which is four minutes and thirty-three seconds of only the sounds in the environment. Cage does not touch the piano throughout this piece, so it challenges the very definition of what music is. On the other hand, Duchamp used ready-mades such as his famous “Fountain” and would put them on display as art. The idea that the art piece was just an ordinary object not even created by the artist was a direct challenge to the art world at the time. Similarly, Johns pushed the envelope by having common symbols, in this case a target, become pieces of
The Last Supper depicts the story told in the bible as the last meal Jesus had with his disciples before being crucified. Jesus made the statement that someone would betray him. Thesis work of art is an attempt to catch the chaos in the room after Jesus made the statement. Catherine Sundt makes the statement ,” The Last Supper and Handel’s Messiah are not Christian teachings, but rather art inspired by Christianity”(Sundt 77).
From my perception, the source of abstract expressionism and of one of its main influence and source came from Jackson Pollock. Abstract expressionism is a post–World War II art movement in American painting, developed in New York in the 1940s, also one of the pillars of contemporary or modern art. The Abstract Expressionist were committed to an expressive art of profound emotion and universal themes, and most were shaped by the post-war tragedies and the results of it. In revolt abstract expressionist artists reinvented abstract painting but its influence comes much earlier from Surrealism and Cubism, often considered the most important contribution to Modernism. Forming a distinct style; a style that combines abstract form and expressionist
The White bridge is an exquisitely beautiful oil painting created by “John Henry Twachtman”. This piece of art dimension is 30.32 inches wide * 30.32 inches high. Although the title of the painting is white bridge, the painting holds in it many of variety colors, that shows the spring in 1896, with the gradients of a green color, and tendency of rich and light brown color. During the late of the 18th century, John Twachtman purchased a farm near Greenwich, Connecticut. Then he began painting his piece of art, while his journey through his Connecticut property, and the white bridge is representation of Horseneck Brook.
His understanding of nature profoundly differs from our own. Wright felt this strong connection to nature throughout his life, and Fallingwater presented him with a unique opportunity to showcase it unlike his previous houses. Designed for his elderly mother, Robert Venturi used the house – The Vanna Venturi - as a canvas to demonstrate some of the “complexities and contradictions” in modern architecture. With the Vanna Venturi house, his desire to challenge modern orthodoxy is apparent in the home’s façade, which acts as a sort of billboard for a house, with its pitched roofline and functionless arch – both clear departures from modernist principles.
Granado’s music assists in creating an intimate linkage between the classic melody and the spirit of the local lands. Overall, the talent of the both masters is compared and considered irresistible as if they created the same work only in the different realm of art. Furthermore, Granado’s Goyescas was inspired by Albeniz’s motives, as well. The musician was thoroughly familiar with his style and used the same approaches to the
The people around us and our surroundings shouldn’t change who we are because we all have our own personalities and our own ways of doing things. David Foster Wallace, author of “Ticket to the Fair,” grew up a couple of hours from down state Springfield but moved to the east coast is writing a articles on the Illinois state fair. As he goes through the days of the fair he realizes thing are different from the East Coast, and that the people are not what he expected. The way people treat David makes him act different toward people. “Lacking a real journalist’s killer instinct, I’ve been jostled way to the back, and my view is observed by the towering hair of Ms. Illinois country fair, whose function here is unclear.”

“The Renaissance of the fifteenth century was, in many things, great rather by what it designed then by what it achieved.” - Walter Pater. Benozzo Gozzoli was an early Italian painter during the Renaissance. He designed and painted many of the Renaissance’s greatest masterpieces, such as the Procession of the Magi, The Conversion of Saint Paul, and Virgin and Child with Angels. Gozzoli’s artwork was influenced by many things and people around him, that helped shape him to be one of the greatest painters during the Renaissance.
Art, the expression of human ability or imagination. Art is usually expressed visually, but should not only be limited to what you see, It can also be what you hear, or how a piece of art makes you feel. Art is timeless and today we still can appreciate work that was done many years ago. My favorite artist is Ed Roth. He was an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, pinstriper and custom car designer.
Ella Nasser Contextual research essay "As an artist you are only a link in a chain, and whatever you find or whatever you do not find, you can find comfort in it. "- Vincent Van Gogh Inspiration is a curious idea. The amount of influences that can affect the nature and creativity of an artist’s work is countless, and to pinpoint a true inspiration is difficult but if I had to choose my most influential contextual research artist my inspiration would have to be both Vincent Van Gogh and Valerie Hegarty.
Similar to Masaccio’s Expulsion from the Garden of Eden; Masolino 's magnificent Renaissance fresco, Temptation of Adam and Eve, is also found in the Brancacci Chapel of the Santa Maria del Carmine Church. Both frescos are the most representative pieces of Adam and Eve, but Masaccio’s touches of working on shadow, composition, expressions, color and symbols made his Expulsion from the Garden of Eden more unique at that time. Masaccio also was a sculptor, so his vision of seeing shadow was definitely benefited from the observation of sculptures. According to The Brancacci Chapel and Masolino, Masaccio, and Filippino Lipp, Austen Henry Layard wrote, “Masaccio was born in the castellated town of S. Giovanni… The works of Fra Filippo Lippiand and Donatello were the
The Hudson River School was a group of American artists who were interested in capturing aspects of the American landscape and also shared a specific genre of painting. Their focus shifted across the continent and many tried to capture the beauty of the uncultivated west. Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand were two very significant Hudson River School artists whose almost invisible brushstrokes and muted palette defined the art of the American landscape for society in the mid-nineteenth century. Previously, Europe had been the center for art and controlled what art was accepted, but the United States’ uncultivated wilderness was a popular subject for landscape painters. There was a sense of mystery and grandeur that was attractive to artists and people paying to see the art.
