The Starry Night is a world-famous oil on canvas painted by a well known and very unusual artist Vincent van Gogh. This painting belongs to the style of post-impressionist paintings due to its formal characteristics and the message that this painting is aimed to deliver to the viewers. The Starry Night is not the only artist 's painting that depicts the night sky and the starts on it. However, even considering the Starry Night over the Rhone and the Cafe Terrace At Night, the manner of painting differs a lot and the perception of the main ideas of the pictures is really different. This work is an exceptional example of art, both in terms of the quality and within the artist’s oeuvre.
I am fond of the idea that 4’33” is the response to the physical art movement, in the music world. While this aspect of the piece is difficult to argue, my reasons for believing this piece is at least partially Dada are as followed. First of all, John Cage were good friends many different famous modern artists. He was friends with Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Willem DeKooning, who were massive names in the modern art era. In fact, for a short amount of time he lived with Peggy Guggenheim, whose name is still associated with modern art.
In analyzing past artwork, we rewind time and experience it on a personal level. Michelangelo, a revolutionary sculptor, painter, and architect exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of western art, offering insight into the political, economic, social, and religious situations of the late fifteenth to mid-sixteenth century Renaissance. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, born March 6, 1475 in Caprese, Italy, was raised in a family who previously belonged to a minor nobility in Florence, but lost its patrimony. At a young age, Michelangelo demonstrated interest, and promise, in the arts, preferring to copy church paintings or seek the company of painters—like Domenico Ghirlandaio—and sculptors—like Bertoldo di Giovanni, rather than renowned intellectuals. In 1490, a period of artistic flourishing
Berth Morisot was a French paintmaker and painter, who was associated with impressionism. Born into a family of a government official who was supportive of the arts she was able to openly practice her passion to paint. Through her painting The Basket Chair, she demonstrates her remarkable style of rough to light brush strokes that create a sense of realism in this piece. She was one of the few female painters of her time. The subject matter of her piece is not as interesting as that of Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, due to the gender inequality and male superiorism.
In this text I will focus on the industrial revolution and the class system The industrial revolution was the big changed that happened in England in the middle of the 1700. The changed that happen was the transition from hand production methods to machines. The first industry was connected to textile production. In short time, England had changed from being a country that got most of their income through agricultural, to a country that followed the on growing industrial revolution. The industrial revolution are often divided into two parts.
“Even as a child, his gift for combining poetry and reality is a rarity in English art, and it enable him to intercept classical myth and legend in a quite extraordinarily convincing way” (Wood 244). His paintings of classical and mythical scenes show a true mix between Neoclassical themes and Romantic style. His art and style will help inspire and develop other artists throughout the 19th century. “Warehouse is a brilliant dramatist of subjects and narratives. He’ll find a composition for a complex narrative subject that gives this powerful interpretation at a glance, even if it’s an unfamiliar story.” (Gunzburg, Darrelyn 71) “Waterhouse's many works extend for over decades.
Murillo was also a Baroque painter and was considered one of the best of his time. In his early work he focused on light without changing the contrast too much. In 1640’s he changed his style to included subtle light changes while using transparent colors (arthistoria). The 1670s, when this painting was created, was considered Murillo's most creative time in his painting career (arthistoria).His paintings were described as the "vaporous style” because the brushwork was feathery, the pigment thin and the coloration cool and light like in Saint Thomas of Villanueva Giving Alms to the poor (nortonsimon). Depicted in this painting is St. Thomas de Villanueva who was known for his many acts of charity.
In this General Art History course work, we are going to talk about the Four Seasons Collection by Giuseppe Arcimboldo from the 1570s. As the work was going on we were debated with some questions that, as far as we are concerned, helped us to understand the art of this pioneer series of paintings. Some of the questions that we struggled were: Which are the main symbols that were chosen? And how did it influence other artistic styles? A marvellous painter with a powerful mind and talented hands, got his work and intelligence greatly admired by his contemporaries in life.
While Braque was reportedly critical of Picasso’s proto-cubist work Demoiselles d’Avingon at first, the two became good friends and would eventually found the cubist movement. Both Picasso and Braque would share ideas daily, and at one point in time, the two artists’ work is almost
William H. Johnson street in cagne-sur-mer ca.1927 was a beautiful piece it showed you that it was early on in his popular career, he seemed to be more focused on maybe imitating the likes of Picasso. Even before 1927 he also had work but It is no record of this work. Langston Hughes states that “I want to be a white poet.”(Hughes 1965) This statement kinds fits with William because like stated earlier in the passage he was really inspired by the likes of Picasso. The painting looked like it was moving but it also had a lot of emotion behind the painting and he was just emulation what he was around. The oils made it seem very life like but through a foggy lens at the same it was any things going on in the painting.
Surrealism and op art forces someone to second guess what they see. I find this useful when I am designing or creating my own artwork. I want people’s eyes to linger on the art I make. I have an aesthetic that is similar to Steranko’s in that I am influenced by some of the same artwork he was influenced by. To make someone question what they are seeing, I think, is the purpose of art itself.
