by his predecessors. Murillo’s soft, sweet, and mischievous works offered a comic relief to the dark and stern artists’ works preceding him. Antione Watteau was famous for his ornate and airy style encouraged his individuality from other artists during his time. He mastered the technique of “trois-crayons” or the three chalks technique as seen in Seated Woman (1975). Antione Watteau influenced costume, film, poetry, and music in the art world during his time and after.
His work was large in scale, flamboyant in color, and fluidity. He is most closely linked with what is known as action painting. No drop of paint is an accident and loose, rapid sweeping brushstrokes make this style reminiscent of the Surrealists. Pollock became influenced by Picasso, Miro alongside Rothko and the surrealists but soon developed his own unique style which he would later become famous for. Mark Rothko’s technique of painting departs from Pollock’s actions.
Vincent van Gogh was a 19th century Post-Impressionist painter with a desire to incorporate happiness and joyfulness into his artwork. His need to create happiness during a socially conformable, a constitutional monarchy under the rule of William III (of Orange), is justified in the hardships The Netherlands suffered during the 19th century. Holland, a remotely small country, under the constitutional monarchy ruled by William III (of Orange), which was amid adjusting to their new King (of the Netherlands) and his policy of maintaining a protestant country surrounded by Roman Catholic controversy (“William III – The Invader King”). Born in a small, gloomy, imperialist-run town in Holland, Vincent Van Gogh was an aspiring artist, presumably, since he took his first breath. Holland was country deeply invested in windmills and all sorts of
Dove was known as America’s first abstract painter and he used colorful, dynamic forms to show his sensitive side of the physical world which inspired O’Keeffe. Over the years of their friendship, their artistic dialogue yielded a form of modernism grounded in direct, emotional responses to that of nature which helped shape the course of art in America. While Stieglitz was a photographer, he and O’Keeffe’s styles were also similar. He was a photographer that had an eye for abstract art while she had the style of abstract
Théophile Alexandre Steinem was best known for his advertising ventures but enjoyed success with exhibitions showing. Despite this, his manipulation of line and color in Dance on the Outskirts of Town displays his understanding of fundamental aspects used to create masterpieces. The naturalistic depiction of the dance hall is representative of art during this period along with the medium. While the foreground of this piece promotes a grandness and sense of joy, the background and colors are almost depressed suggesting an atmosphere of
Girl With Oil Stick, also known as Words of Discomfort, is created around 2009 by the artist from Rhode Island, Bob Dilworth. Dilworth’s ingenuity in Girl With Oil Stick refers to the love that experienced him and the love that he experienced as an external spectator. Girl With Oil Stick is a work on paper with utilizing of acrylic paint, newspapers, and oil sticks. Dilworth combines drawings and newspaper collages in this artwork which shows that his main focus is on the experiment with interrelation of technology and mixed media. Since Dilworth did not have his own studio when he came in Providence to be an instructor at Brown University in 1992, he had to direct his artistic energy into the creation of manuscripts.
The final poem of significance is Jazzonia, in which Hughes experiments with literary form to transform the act of listening to jazz into an ahistorical and biblical act. Neglecting form, it is easy to interpret the poem shallowly as a simple depiction of a night-out in a cabaret with jazz whipping people into a jovial frenzy of singing and dancing. But, the poem possesses more depth, when you immerse yourself in the literary form. The first aspect of form to interrogate is the couplet Hughes thrice repeats: “Oh, silver tree!/Oh, shining rivers of the soul!” Here, we see the first transformation. The “silver tree” alludes to an instrument used to perform jazz (probably a saxophone).
In conclusion, Atticus Finch from Haper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, demonstrates humility, fairness, and loves his children very much. Although he had many a chance to boast about his amazing achievements and accomplishments, Atticus never did, but instead chose to keep these skills quiet and low-down. Being black meant nothing much to him either; he believed blacks should get an equal chance at everything and Atticus never judged someone immediately just because of one’s colour or social class. He proved this when he decided to defend the black man, Tom Robinson in front of the entire court. All of Atticus characters stated here also leads up to the main one: love.
Surrealism is defined by Breton in his book ‘Manifesto of Surrealism’ (1924). Within this book, he states that the movement’s defining principle was “psychic automatism” meaning that thought derived from “any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern.” Overall, the main intention of ‘Manifesto of Surrealism’ is to escape both the past and everyday reality. Breton’s ideas and theories have influenced artists within the modern arts to incorporate his work within their own art, expanding and defining new ideas of
This is partially due to the albescence of alliteration. It is also partially because it is easy to transition from syllable to syllable. The third line of the stanza lists man mad things with a comma after each. This produces a very uniform rhythm when read, which reflects uniformity and development of the Europe the narrator described to. This again contrasts with the undeveloped, spontaneous, and natural American landscape he described in Stanza.
Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art. Stanton Macdonald-Wright applied thin layers of dry paint in wide strokes on the canvas to create flat surfaces of color. In some regions, the painter uses the technique of drybrush to create a scratchy texture that let the under layer of white paint to show through. This created the transition from dark and intense hues to lighter shades of that hue, giving the colors a transparent quality. Although chiaroscuro modeling is not used,
It possesses the gradients, rustic brush strokes and the unusual color choices and gradients that have become characteristic of his style. This painting is able to redefine the “still life” painting; Max’s piece is abounding with movement and energy seen most easily in the choice of color as well as brush stokes. In order to analyze a piece of artwork, it is imperative to understand where and how the creator was raised. Peter
