The classical nude is a staple of many Renaissance works such as the one of Adam and Eve shown it class. Perhaps more important though, is the sense of realism, and attention payed to anatomical correctness, these are ideals that slowly reemerged during the Renaissance. King says that Michelangelo used models to get the correct anatomical correctness for the Fresco, this shows that the patron was willing to spend more money which is another Renaissance theme. In addition to the things portrayed, the way the art is painted is possibly the most defining characteristic of Renaissance art.
For instance, The Sower uses expressive line throughout the entire drawing. In the field, it can be noticed that the colors are overlapped. Van Gogh is known for using expressive line in his work, which can also be seen in his other painting named Starry Night. Veteran in a New Field doesn’t use expressive line. The lines in this painting are more controlled.
One of them being the different ways of creating art. It spread the idea that paintings should be more realistic than those of the past. It moved away from two-dimensional style to three-dimensional paintings. A very famous artist that used this method was Leonardo DA Vinci. He painted the very famous painting of Mona Lisa.
All the artists at the time, painted from light to dark, and the base is light, instead Giorgione he used a darker shade as background and painted in a progressive way to lighter tones, and created an effect that seems that the light comes out from the darkness. The nga.gov states , “ he woven canvas encouraged a looser pattern of brushwork, one that breaks up the surface with light-reflecting textures, some thick, others of transparent thinness.” Giorgione wasn’t affected by his time period as much as other painters, but he mostly affected other artists. Giorgione affected many artists during the Renaissance, mostly because of his unique art works and that he had his own ideas and also techniques that he developed, bot being influenced as much as other artists. Some artists that he influenced are : Paris Bordone ,Giovanni Busi death il Cariani, Giulio Campagnola, Vincenzo Catena,
The Martyrdom of St. Erasmus was painted by Nicholas Poussin, a French painter, in the year of 1628. Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) was an important painter of the French Baroque period and and the founder of French classical painting in 17th century. He admired Renaissance masters Raphael and Titian, and was obsessed with the study of Greek and Roman cultural heritage. Most of Poussin 's works are based on myth, history, and religious stories. Although it is not large, it is meticulously crafted.
Infact many of his pieces includes examples of similes, metaphors, and personification. These different forms of figurative language help the reader create a "mental picture" inside the mind. For example,”They walked in single file. The entrance to the path was like a sort of arch leading into a gloomy tunnel made by two great trees that leant together, too old and strangled with ivy and hung with lichen to bear more than a few blackened leaves. The path itself was narrow and wound in and out among the trunks.”
There is more going on in this painting since the river path way guides our eyes to the back as the sky seems to get darker. Color plays a huge role in the both paintings, both painting are representational showing true life colors. In Out of My Studio Door, Montclair he uses warm impasto and secondary colors. There are only several colors used such as different shades of greens, brown, and gray. Unlike, in Untitled (Mountain Storm) he has more choice in warm colors such as, orange gray for the sky, different shades of greens, browns, and grays.
While these changes could have been viewed as negative, the artist chose to see them as beautiful. He chooses everyday to believe that what nature does to his sculptures not only makes them remarkable, but completes the
He combined all these elements with his own characteristics and developed to form his own style. In general, Rubens's appropriate handling of sketches relationship, and the manner he adopted of light and shade give a strong sense of volume in his landscape paintings; brilliant colors, flow composition and full structure make his landscape paintings full of magical visual effects; arc and swirling "Baroque" Rhythm which all-encompassing display eternal change. Rubens's aroque world, is a beautiful, boast, full of flesh world representative of the imperial power. Yet, Poussin considered Rationality above all else, He admired humans and nature, rather than the king. Poussin balanced the Baroque and Classicism, his landscape painting are serene, noble, and have a sense of order, to depict Idealized landscape painting and eventually developed classical
One of those places is in the seventh circle, it’s a dark wooded area with strange black trees. Dante hears suffering cries that are actually coming from the trees themselves. The trees used to be living people, all those who took their own life. An artist with a somewhat different style who still does an excellent job with this illustration is John Flaxman. His drawing is almost cartoon like, and shows very organically shaped trees with bodies built into the trunks.
In Frank Romero's mural "Going to the Olympics,1984" what you see is various of colorful cars on the freeway or road and on top of the car there are hearts on each one. The possible meaning of it is because everyone does love their cars. Also in the image there is a blimp that says "A Good Year" mostly because it was related to the olympics or a form of advertisment. You also see some wrestlers, and a iron. The wrestlers I would say that represent the olympics and the iron is a flying iron back then was used as a spaceship in the movies as i was told.
