I was seeing painting after painting in the museum and they all looked the same to me. As it came to the end of the tour I was worried I wouldn’t have an image I actually wanted to talk about, then something about the way this was painted made me fall in love with the painting. I'm not usually the person that falls in love with a painting and imagines all the things it could mean but when I saw the clarity of Roman Courtship and the colors I knew that this was the painting I wanted to talk about. Another work I saw in the Ringling that caught my eye was Circe Entertaining Odysseus at a Banquet by Italian artist Giovanni Paolo Panini. This painting is an Oil on Canvas made in about 1718-19.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the finest Modern European Art collections that has enlightened and awakened my personal mastery and appreciation of Art. Being a student in the business side of education I had never really explored my different avenues of the artistic side in me. The Museum itself is an artistic and historic architectural grace to the entire block on 82nd Street in Manhattan. Entering inside, I sensed myself going into an era of Europe where people traded ideas and learned from each other. I walked in the aisle of the 19th to the 21th Century art, it gave me a sense of the community and the important aspects of modern Europe along with the finest art pieces which came along from there.
Throughout the article Steiner speaks about how visual arts focus on aestheticism using women and ornaments to appeal to our primitive desires, rather than focusing on the meaning of the piece, with the meaning symbolizing the beauty of an artwork. She also states how focusing on the aesthetic aspect of an art piece can be impure due to over sexualizing it or adding unnecessary decorations such as colors to appeal to the viewers, with many paintings and photographs/films using nude women to garner a larger
They weren’t supposed to be a child’s toys they were supposed to be used for rituals. Some cultures used them for trapping spirits which is why they’re given such blank expressions. One of the dolls that freaked me out the most was a doll towards the corner of the museum. It was a dark faced doll sitting in a rocking chair on top of a shelf. When I first walked into the museum it was facing the door way with a smile and big blue eyes.
The term impressionism came from Monet’s painting Impression, Sunrise. There was a Paris exhibition in 1874 of like-minded painters who were shunned by the official Paris Salon show and frustrated by its politics and narrow vision. This group included such artistic legends such as Renoir, Degas, Cézanne and Pissarro. An art critic who was reviewing the show helped to created the term by titling his article “Exhibition of Impressionists” based on Monet’s work. However the art critic did not mean it as a compliment but it gained popularity and in future use, took on a far more respectful connotation.
Portraits of famous people also serve as means of inspiration for many. Those who are successful in certain fields provide an example for others to follow. 3. What change occurred in the 19th century in terms of the context of portraits? In the 19th century, portraits began to be created and collected in order to represent people that were important nationally, as opposed to those portraits for dynastic collections that were only important to certain families as signs of status.
Therefore, even if your life seems to be falling apart you can still find enjoyment. 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.
“Visual Arts cultivate thinking, innovation and collaboration.” As I write this paper today, I realized how each of us analyse everything in our lives without even meaning to do so. The museum that I decided to visit virtually was the Offizi Gallery in Italy. Located in Florence, this gallery included numerous paintings, sculptures and ceramics. The art piece that I have decided to write an analysis on today is The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. The Birth of Venus was created by Sandro Botticelli (c. 1486).
The museums most famous piece is Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”. The Code of Hammurabi, the Greek sculpture “Nike of Samothrace” and “Venus de Milo” are also notable masterpieces. The “Mona Lisa” is the best known and most visited piece of art. It is a portrait painting done by Leonardo de Vinci. The portrait is an oil painting on a white Lombardy poplar panel.
