John Baskerville By; Shaina Flatow John Baskerville started the transitional style serif fonts with his Baskerville font. He opened the door to the modern style of fonts and implemented many changes to the printing and typesetting industry that is still felt today. It is hard to find a graphic designer today that doesn’t use his font or a font based of his. He was born on January 28, 1706 in Wolverley, Worcestershire, England. He was originally a writing master and stone engraver.
It is because cubism was a revolution to arts. Arts before that demanded details and more close to how things look in real life. However, cubism broke that style and began abstract art. Cubism allowed artists to revitalise the over-used traditions of Western art which they believed had run their course. The Cubists challenged abstract and unusual forms, yet still with techniques such as perspectives, shading and ratios.
Art that does not depict recognizable object, but made up of forms and colors that exists of there on expressive interest. Decorative art can be describe as abstract but normally the term refers to modern paintings that abandon the traditional European conceptual art as the simulation of nature and make little or no recognition to the external visual world.

This report discusses about the artistic practices and concepts of two popular artists in the history Rachel Whiteread and Claude Monet. The objective of focusing on their artistic practices is to get a clear understanding of what they tried to elaborate through their artwork Artistic practice of Mr. Rachel Whiteread: Rachel Whiteread is an English artist, born in 1963.

Introduction to 20th century music Although the music we make today is (generally) very different from the music composed and listened to in the 20th century we can still appreciate the style and sound of this era. This era and its composers rebelled against the previously accepted practices of music, which is what makes this era both interesting and intriguing. Another factor which is somewhat intriguing about this era of music is the dates involved.
The Post- Impressionist period follows the Impressionist period by splitting artist into two sides. Some artist felt that the artwork during the Impressionist period may have been too sketchy and lacked formal structure (Frank, 2014). Still, other artist thought there was too much emphasis on objective observations, which caused a lack of personal expression and spiritual content (Frank, 2014). To examine both types of art methods, I choose an example of both kinds of artwork, which are displayed in the same organization, the Art Institute of Chicago. The first artwork is A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, by Georges Seurat in 1884, and features a systematic and “scientific” technique.

These two eras are just related in one way: there is not clear outlines or many details. The first question that could come out of your mind when you see a piece of impressionist art is if the artist was in a hurry. This type of paintings will have thick dabs and blobs of paint and you would have to take some steps back to see what the painting is about. Expressionism artworks are really exaggerated or distorted, as the same as impressionism, there could be dabs and blobs of paint. Pieces of this kind of art are really valuable because they marked the beginning of modern art.
It provides a condensed history of the evolution of critical theories and discriminates between them with the aid of a simple diagram. The essay begins with the definition of modern criticism which is to exhibit “the relation of art to the artist, rather than to external nature, or to the audience, or to the internal requirements of the work itself”. This one and a half century old theory of art competed against innumerable theories such as the mimetic theory, the pragmatic theory, etc., all of which have been thoroughly discussed in the essay. Abrams quotes theorists such as Santayana and D.W. Prall to show the unreal and chaotic nature of these alternate theories.
After 9/11, historians started to think about changing the study of foreign policy; including things that they once thought as insignificant came into the light and began to be re-analyzed. Ever since 9/11 our world has changed forever. Transportation Security Agency, or TSA, which was once
From Bauhaus to Our House by Tom Wolfe Tom Wolfe’s scathing short From Bauhaus to Our House obliterates modernist architecture in 111 pages of sarcasm, wit, and an unyielding frustration with everything modern. In the blink of an eye, American architecture transformed into a collection of glass, steel, and concrete boxes. The International style had the U.S. in it’s anti bourgeois grip, and was not letting go anytime soon. Wolfe, with his personal preference to ornate structures, detested modern architecture and the international style.
