In his paintings, the characters have strange appearance: big head and short body. As we know, the methods selected by artists usually have something to do with their experiences, opinions and philosophies. Their life perspective are shaped by their special time and environment and determines the way they view the world---- It is what they feel. So life is not simple records of the objective world, but a mental world. From the above analysis we can see that the grotesque figures in Chen Hongshou’s paintings reflect his mentality and wild emotion.
Using simpler words, this art is commonly told to be an outlet for those who wish to showcase subconscious thoughts in the most genuine state where outside influence is eliminated. Thus, Magritte most likely created this canvas painting in hopes to bring awareness to the way overthinking and being psychologically overwhelmed can become suffocating, eliminating the chance for intimacy in a romantic relationship between two people. Because of this, it will cause much frustration and continuous strain. These are the things that many people were ignoring, but Magritte urged for the public to think
In any case, it isn 't a genuine fresco since it was painted on a dry mortar as opposed to a wet one. He needed to make the sketch as definite far reaching as could be expected under the circumstances, as he needed to depict human appearance and feeling on the character 's countenances. Da Vinci was experimenting with new procedures of painting and, unfortunately, his new strategy was not of high caliber for ensuring craftsmanship over long scenes. The showstopper is painted on a layer of dry mortar. He picked this medium because of the requirement for more opportunity to paint exact articulations, which was unworkable on wet mortar as he would get a brief span (Kenneth, 1939).
While I’ve not had the opportunity to see Eakins work I can say its vastly different from Johns painting. They both seem to depict the idea that nothing is as it seems to be. I believe that Johns is trying to tell us that even in the dark we can find the light behind it, waiting to be found and waiting to shine through. Eakins work is trying to convey the message that even in the spotlight of society we can always be consumed by the darkness that is societal pressures on even the smartest and strongest willed people like the doctor in the painting. One of the clear differences we can see between the two is the line between abstraction and realism.
Each movement created paintings that got the viewer thinking, you the viewer had to decide what the artist was trying to portray. The artists used their imagination to create the finished piece, which for Suprematists seemed to be more about the shapes than the colour, but for me the Expressionists win out as their vast use of different shapes and colours draw the viewer in and makes you feel
Also, the techniques of the artists resist the similarity of their works. Asha Young used soft and smooth strokes, with varying definitions depending on the place on the canvas to establish depth. On the contrary, Van Gogh painted using rough and stocky
Tenebrism – a style of using light and dark in the painting, which also called dramatic illumination. It was invented by Caravaggio since he was good in using the light to perform the atmosphere though the painting sharply. His painting style is mixing up with the science elements. He used the result of a little optical science of reflecting into a darkened room on his paintings. This invention elicited either love or hate in the public as not all the people would accept this painting style.
He looked at people, objects, nature and his composition with a sense of geometry in organization rather than focusing on their reality and translating that onto the canvas. This self-portrait is testimony to that process of simplification as he treats each part of the composition with broad brush strokes and fluid patterns and still brings out the purpose and mood with clarity. This portrait reveals Cézanne’s artistic personality reflected in his technique and treatment of space on the canvas. He painted the face with hues that illuminate a part of the face forming a strong sense of perspective. He uses a series of shades to contour the face instead of using contour lines.
In her essay “The mechanical art: Some historic debates on art and photography,” Andrea Kunard (n.d.) studies multiple arguments in favor photography as an art form and against it. From the onset, there were critics, such as Lady Elizabeth Eastlake, who argued that the truthful depiction of objects is exactly that which makes photography art (Kunard, n.d., p. 160). Others, such as Charles Baudelaire, viewed photography as “soulless, cold, and mechanical” (Kunard, n.d., p. 158). Inasmuch as photography just began to take off, people needed some time to look into it more closely and explore its capacities. Kunard (n.d.) points out that mostly critics were put off by the camera’s mechanical qualities; some believed that “art cannot be produced through a mechanical device” (p. 172).
To make it more realistic, they used more dark paints to create the shadows and more natural looking people. They also made certain things bigger or smaller to create the effect of this object to feel closer or farther away. In one of Mr. Caravaggio’s paintings he showed me, one of the man’s hand was unnaturally big to give me the illusion of it to be closer to me and as if it could be grabbing me at any moment. The painting seemed to be as if it was a moment in time, frozen forever, that he captured with his paint and canvas. He then asked me if it looked familiar to me, but when I said no, and he told me what it was, it was an even bigger shock than the painting and illusions themselves.
To fully understand how an art network works it can help to relate it to an artist. For example, Vincent van Gogh was an artist who strived to imbue all of his art pieces with emotion. With the emotion in mind that he wanted to convey, he used his imagination to come up with a style that would serve his purpose. His style was different from others before him because he chose a differing color palette and it was quite bold. His choice of colors differed with his
My first choice was from m textbook and I got interested about it because the art got many reasons to show its point. For example, Composition VII 1913 78.25*119.1 in is known as the masterpiece for its own artiest. He drew it with much feelings that led this work to be known as one of the best. “The painting is a multicolored work that is designed to appeal to the senses and evoke an emotional response.” He used many colors to show the viewers that it is not easy to mix a lot of colors and finish with this kind of high quality painting. This kind of work at first will fill you with sort of confusion, so you have to read it by your eyes and your mind too.
First, I learned was how to draw faces in a couple of unusual ways: blind contour and continuous contour. Before working on these drawings, I knew it would be tough to create a realistic contour drawing. The key to success with these odd couple of drawing methods is to focus on the
Onbirbak 1 Neema Onbirbak Professor Levin Art Appreciation 3 August 2015 Art has a part in every nation’s history, whether it captures events or creates some themselves. Unfortunately, during the Nazi Regime many pieces of this kind of history were lost. When I look at art, I try to recreate the artist in his or her studio trying to paint the piece or even photograph it, and imagine all the hard work it took to make one image. Personally I liked art during the Renaissance period because of the fact that it was under control, and not crazy. Now days, people can simply draw a line on a blank canvas, or even just shapes in different colors and it will be considered art.
A paintbrush on a canvas, a pencil on paper, anything that could be used to express feelings. Art is beautiful and versatile, from a variety of mediums to choose from, the sky 's the limit. It is my way of coping with the world, an escape from reality into somewhere where I decide what goes. The colors gliding off, swimming together to become something different in everyones eyes. Art is communication without words, but with the mind.
