Guillame de Machaut, unlike John Dowland, has a well-known composition called Agnus Dei, and it is a prayer for mercy and peace. Machaut created music for the church and was the first to do in a polyphonic approach. Agnus Dei became a staple in the mass ordinary, as it referred to “speaking of christ”. This song was meant to appeal to the mind and not so much the ears, it was a revamp on the Middle Age Gregorian chant. John Dowland was from 1563-1626, so he is from the late Renaissance period in which he primarily wrote melancholy songs based off of popular consort songs and dance music from that time period.
Christianity runs deeply throughout the veins of America’s oldest traditions, whether Americans themselves realize it or not. Christianity can be seen in courtship and the wedding ceremony, but one of the more obscure traditions that Christianity had a say in is childbirth. It was said long ago, menstruation, pregnancy and the pain of childbirth are the punishment for Eve’s Original Sin. Modernly, this explanation is not so much as established as it was before. Now, pregnancy is looked upon as a beautiful and magical thing.
The way this works is through the interpretation of the creations that the patient has drawn. There are numerous things to look for when interpreting art work. Not only does one look at the symbolism in the drawing or painting, but the objects that people omit from a work can be just as informative. The position of each piece of the art will provide insight. Art therapy allows the individual to play a vital role in recovery as well as track their progress.
The first excerpt was stating how man thought of sin as a good thing at first, but regrets it later during God’s judgement. The first excerpt was written during the Renaissance, but promoted Middle Ages thinking. The second excerpt was written later on in the Renaissance, and it was complimenting mankind. William Shakespeare compared man to god and angels, highlighting the finest traits.
This essay will analyze how the work of Chuck Close greatly influenced me in relation to my drawing as I was inspired by the expressive nature of the fingerprint portraits. Also, how exploring Close’s artworks and underlying meaning of his works caused me to question the meaning I wanted to portray in my drawing which therefore caused me to come up with my final theme that is Surplus of Individuals, Scarcity of Presence. Chuck close believes that the human face is a symbol for the roadmap of a person’s life as it tells the journey that one has been on. Close suffers from a condition known as face blindness- this causes him to forget the faces he has seen unless they are in a two dimensional form; this is one of his main influences for making portraits as it enables him to remember the faces of the most
What is an artist? An artist is a person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, novelist, poet, or filmmaker. To be an artist, a person needs to have emotions towards the art they are creating. An artist needs empathy and knowledge to create great art. To begin with, according to Anna Deavere Smith, before a person can become an artist they have to understand what the artist is trying to accomplish.
I feel that you should choose your mentor, the person,in my opinion,should meet your standards. A reference from ‘Letters To A Young Artist’ that I found is “I sought them out on my own,and they come from all sorts of backgrounds,” in reply to a fan asking “how did you find your mentors?” Another is “mentors are different from teachers in general because you pick them.” Her and I have very similar opinions, however, some people disagree. Some people may say that mentors are chosen for you, not vice versa.
According to Vygotsky, he believed that part of the creative process was being aware of one’s and other’s personal experience and how that makes a person feel. Then, when art captures that emotion it does not mean that emotion for the artist will automatically be experienced by all, but everyone internalizes it based on their own personal experiences, feelings and where they are from. Then externalization comes from taking an internalization and making sense of it by taking a look at feelings, thoughts, images, symbols, etc. as they come together to create something. An example I have to represent this is when I was in the process of trying to choreograph my first dance for my senior showcase piece.
A piece of art is like a glass wall between the creator and the viewer: it allows the artist to form relationships with the people—even as strangers—through creating and expressing identity. Famous artist Vincent Van Gogh used his art to express his emotions. Suffering from mental
When they go to create their art they have a set emotion in mind and they work to integrate it into their piece. Imagination is used in their creative process. Through using their imagination, they are able to get the emotion that they desire into the art and the reaction that they desire from the audience. To fully understand how an art network works it can help to relate it to an artist. For example, Vincent van Gogh was an artist who strived to imbue all of his art pieces with emotion.
Each painting is unique, with a tactile presence, which reveals the hand of the artist. The image, which was the product of a split second drive by photo, now takes on substance through both the physicality of the paint, and through the contemplation of place and time. In this, the paintings come to represent more of a testament to her experience than the photographs. In the essay An Art That Eats Its Own Head – Painting in the Age of Images Barry Schwabgley acknowledges photographs place in contemporary art while also confirming the significance of painting, “ Although it was
Self Portrait by Judith Leyster (1630) and Third-Class Carriage (1864) by Honore Daumier are the two paintings I will compare. Since both artists capture everyday life events, I will compare the similarities, while exhibiting their different styles related to different time periods. Judith Leyster was known for pictures of everyday life and portraits in her Baroque/Dutch Golden Age style artwork. As reported by Mind Edge, “The Baroque movement of the 17th and early 18th century was known for its religious focus and its elaborate and extensive ornamentation, advanced by the Catholic Church during the Counter-Reformation as an artistic response to the rise of Protestantism.” (ch. 2.04 par.1) “Painters sought realism in portraits, with an
The similarities and difference between the Italian and Northern Renaissances are greatly reflected by the works of Leonardo da Vinci and William Shakespeare. While both periods invoked a rebirth of humanism, the two artists suggest how the eras differed and resembled one another. For the most part, the Italian Renaissance and Northern Renaissance both emphasized the humanistic aspect of Catholicism. While Leonardo da Vinci illustrated some religious scenes, such as The Last Supper, Shakespeare shied away from any religious influence in his various plays. Both Leonardo da Vinci and William Shakespeare stressed the importance of man in their respective works, however, they used different techniques to achieve their goals.
I posted as Jan Van Eyck was his Madonna in the Chapel. I used the caption “wayy up, I feel blessed.” I used this caption because it is form a well known song by Big Sean. I also thought it fit with the theme of the picture. My hashtags were #nofilter,
