One single painting can be looked at through a million different lenses. The art styles reveal the society and culture of the time. The two most crucial art styles, Rococo and Neoclassical, were assorted in similarities and differences such as influences, style, and theme. Rococo and Neoclassical art both possess beauty through this revolution of art eras. The painting The Love Letter, by Jean Honore Fragonard and the painting Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes by Marie Denise Villers are similar yet distinct in their own ways.
Which of these two styles do you think is better at getting a message across? It is a fact beyond reasonable doubt that both Neoclassical and Romantic art were used as tools for governments, institutions, and individuals to convey their messages; however, the Romantic art accelerates the intense emotion and create a lasting impact on those that gaze at the work centuries after the production. One element worth remembering about the Neoclassical is that it brings to mind the stark difference between the Rococo era reminiscent of romance and leisure and the strong principles of the Greek democracy and Roman idea of freedom and liberty of the individual. The Neoclassical arts scene is one that indicates or portrays the highest point in the individual’s life and its message was often meant to indoctrinate
Shortly afterwards, Romantic art followed; the late 18th century. Though often confused; there are no similarities between them. Romantic style of Art focuses majorly on the mysterious and the natural aspects of life. Neoclassical Art, on the other hand, is more inclined to the more political and unemotional aspects. Delacroix’s ‘Sea of Galilee’ and Watteau’s ‘The Storm’ in comparison are two different paintings in the language of art.
The work which distinguishes the baroque era is based on stylistically complex and variation arts. Baroque art evokes emotional states by giving appeal to the senses, creating dramatic expressions movement, vitality, grandeur, tension, blur distinctions, and sensuous richness in various arts. According to Patrick (2007), Catholic counter-reformation efforts against Protestantism influenced the development of the baroque art. Catholic Church used baroque art to react to mannerism and social turmoil of the period. Catholic Church and the council of Trent emphasized on artworks that clearly interpret realistic subjects.
This work is considered a major step in the creation of the cubist style. The work depicts five nude prostitutes from a brothel Picasso frequented. Figure 2 shows a work similar to that of what Picasso would have encountered before he created his work Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon. When you compare these two works side by side, you can see the similarities in the faces. Both works have almond shape eyes, elongated faces, long noses, arched eyebrows, and small mouths.
During the Baroque and Rococo eras, changes in historical, social and religious context had a great impact on the approach to design at the time. This essay will show, through critical reflection and through analysis of examples of furniture and product design, how historical, social and religious transformations affected design style and philosophy during those eras. Moreover, this essay will address the concept of absolutism and its impact on design at the time; the evolutionary nature of design styles; and explore defining characteristics of the Baroque and Rococo styles. This essay will make use of the following examples of furniture and product design that, due to their characteristic representation of the Baroque and Rococo eras, will help support discussions: Baroque-styleAmerican cupboard, Baroque dressing table, Baroque-style dresser, Rococo bouquetier, Rococo microscope, Rococo pier-table. In this essay, it is important to understand what is meant by the following terms in the context of the time period.
They both used forms of vaults, buttresses and arches and etc, but they use different kind of them. For example, the Romanesque period used the barrel vault while the Gothic period used the ribbed vault. There are also many elements of architecture that separate both styles. The elements that defined some of the Romanesque style was that it was the first style to use mainly all stone and build thick heavy walls in buildings and structures while Gothic style was that it had thinner walls that could reach much higher heights with stained glass windows. Both of these styles elements have similarities and difference too.
There is an attention to detail and being true to life, but it does not belittle the woman at all; indeed, though it is through an objective lens, it is an altogether delicate treatment of the subject. Absent from this painting is the objectification that often pervades portrayals of women in Impressionist art. It is here, though, that the comparison between Caillebotte, Morisot, and Cassatt is especially relevant, for there are observable parallels that may be seen, especially in the blunt realism with which this type of scene is treated, especially in its study of psychological
It strikes for drama and tension, realistic portrait of world, and the fluidity of time and space. Same as many artistic styles from the history, Baroque echoes the social and cultural background at that time. Although no direct linkage could be found between science and art, there is a subtle relationship essential to understanding of art (Janson & Janson, 2001). It was in the 17th century natural science came under the scientist’s scrutiny (Toulmin,
Artistic contribution during this period was looked upon with high regard, because of this ancient art, “classic”, especially that of Greek (e.g., a classical example of a villa). In addition, “classic” could also be referring to at times improvement to a modern style with antique aesthetic appearance, also being identified as a regular feature. This feature gave modern objects of the neo- classical period a fuller more harmonious appearance which was done deliberately by the artist of this age. Specific qualities: like line over colour, straight lines over curves, closed compositions over diagonal compositions, favoring a more linear approach to style. Nonetheless, when artists referred to antiquity, they had their own artistic opinion and ideals, and antique attitudes
