The analysis of the two stories will attempt to generalize what elements of real and fantastic are in most, if not all of “lo real maravilloso.” Before we analyse how magical and real elements are used in short stories, we first need to point out the definition of this literary style. Magical realism was first coined by German Franz Roh in 1925 to refer to a style of painting. Later, Alejo Carpentier took the term and expanded on it thanks to his early influences of surrealism. Carpentier was in fact was not satisfied by his poor contribution to surrealism, so he took ideas from the literary approach. The South American termed the new literary style as “lo real maravilloso.” Even up to now, there is still no agreement on a clear definition of what exactly defines a story as magical realism.
The topic I would like to introduce is Surrealism/ Surrealistic/ Surreal imagery and the significance of its movement and how it influenced many artist all over the globe in the past and still is today. My understanding of this style of art is basically having something out of this world but juxtaposed. Fantasy like objects, effects, perhaps hallucinatory quality of a dream or simply just something unreal. In this essay, the example I have chosen or artist work I found interesting is Sabina Nore, (a modern artist) her work, Divine Fury (Figure 1). I am also going to compare her work against Salvador Dali (historical artist) as his work influenced her.
Surrealism is an artistic and cultural movement dating back to the early twentieth century; art works created in this movement sought to interrogate the psychological space between, and around, dream states and physical reality (Rubin 1968). The Garden of Earthly Delights can be seen as a clear example of such ambiguous exploration. The human unconscious is allowed an expressive voice in Surrealist art works (Rubin 1968); The Garden of Earthly Delights can be seen as having a strong presence of the unconscious, subconscious, dreamlike or fantastical in its presentation (Belting 2002). However, such surreal elements are presented, in The Garden of Earthly Delights, within the context of established and well-known Biblical concepts and settings. These include the Garden of Eden, the afterlife, Hell and
Therefore, this essay will observe Melville’s imagery from a surrealist perspective, comparing Salvador Dali’s painting, “Dali at Age Six” to Chapter 58, “Brit,” and Chapter 114, “The Gilder” to emphasize the fluidity of sea as a means for open interpretation and imagination. It is noted that the “key to all” surrealism is the “spirit” which “sought to break down embedded barriers that viewers might bring to the art, and free them to rise to a higher of supra level of reality—a surreal level of understanding” (Glover, 2003: 39). Surrealism arose like a “phantom” of artistic expression in the twentieth century,
His greatest contribution to art is the cultivation of the modern art concept, known as 'impressionism'(Claude Monet, 2004). It is an artistic philosophy which changed the then accepted perception of color and light.His artistic style is characterized by the use of feathery strokes of the paint brush to depict the play of light with respect to the time. He believed that depicting 'time' in a painting is more important than the 'plot', and was interested in using his painting to capture the feel of the moment. As per Monet "One does not paint countryside, a view, a figure. One paints an impression of an hour of the day (Brussat and Brussat, n.d.)."
Line: Line is how this artwork is formed, so an example of this is actual lines. Actual lines is physical real lines, such as a circle, triangle, or a rectangle. In the Sower 1888, actual lines in this case is the sun, the house in the far end of the field, and the halo above the sower’s head. The huge sun in the middle of the oil painting is an example of van Gogh’s obsession over the color “ yellow,” and how the sun is the star of this painting (wordpress.com). The house is the next example of actual lines and for this work of art, this foreshadows van Gogh’s next painting called “Summer Evening, Wheatfield with Setting sun, 1888” (painting-planet.com).
