His paintings made people and things come to life and look like living creatures, from how the skin appears tanned, to how the bodies created shadows. Since the Ghent Altarpiece was initially shown, the people have been amazed by its realism (The Ghent Altarpiece, Getty Foundation). They were astounded by the exact, humanistic characteristics of the altarpiece, which were extreme progressive works of art at this time. Jan Van Eyck became a famous portrait artist on account of painting people so precisely
I was seeing painting after painting in the museum and they all looked the same to me. As it came to the end of the tour I was worried I wouldn’t have an image I actually wanted to talk about, then something about the way this was painted made me fall in love with the painting. I'm not usually the person that falls in love with a painting and imagines all the things it could mean but when I saw the clarity of Roman Courtship and the colors I knew that this was the painting I wanted to talk about. Another work I saw in the Ringling that caught my eye was Circe Entertaining Odysseus at a Banquet by Italian artist Giovanni Paolo Panini. This painting is an Oil on Canvas made in about 1718-19.
Van Gogh's unique life has inspired millions to become active in art. In fact, what many people today consider to be the archetypical "artist persona" is largely a result of his influence. Perhaps the most impressive aspect is that artists perpetuate to mimic the style that Vincent van Gogh engendered over one hundred years ago. I am genuinely astonished with his piece, Starry Night, and I
The question that stands is whether or not Johannes Vermeer is in fact a genius. Maybe not in the sense of mathematics or physics, but artistically Vermeer has managed to do something most artists strive for, he has captured his audience for more than 400 years. Is that genius though? Not necessarily, that just makes his works beautiful and timeless, but more importantly the genius of Vermeer is in his boldness and creative audacity. Vermeer's ability to paint two beautiful young woman in such a creative manner that looks as if the light was shining in at the perfect moment showcases his genius.
Warhol died in 1987 and he is just growing in popularity since his death. Warhol ,even though deceased, is still a leader in modern art. He is seen as so influential because he took every day items and made them art. He drew a Campbell's soup can and put color to it and this piece of art is everywhere. He tried to find the connection between “celebrity culture and artistic expression” Warhol has inspired what today is modern contemporary art.
The Renaissance was a one of the best times in world history that made a big change in the world. A lot of people only know about few people that lived during the Renaissance for example Michael Angelo, William Shakespeare, and Leonardo de Vinci. Those are the names people recognize and know about the Renaissance because they are taught about at school but there are more people that did extraordinary things during the Renaissance and are not recognized in school. For example Michael Angelo is known for painting the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Leonardo is known for a lot of stuff because his stuff help contribute to modern day art, science, and math.
The end result of the artist’s work is a masterpiece that inspires all who see it. General Petraeus’ made similar choices when painting for his vision of Mosul for his subordinate commanders. The difference being, his picture was painted using words, influence, and trust. This could also be considered a form of art. When done correctly, the describe portion of mission command is just that, but involves inspiring others to understand
Now, artists like Georgia O’Keeffe and Emily Carr’s work is admired around the world. They painted abstract scenes, expressing their feelings in their work. Well-known male artists such as Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol created many abstract works throughout their career and helped further the trend of abstract art becoming a more recognized style of art. These individuals, among many others, have helped usher in a renaissance in art. Like the first Renaissance, people’s views of art and women have changed and artwork from the late 20th century to now demonstrates
During the trend, many artists rose including Church with the landscape paintings. Everyone was urbanizing and it was rare to find such a serene place like Catskill, New York. Church made it happen when he attended art school while being a student of Thomas Cole, who was also an emerged artist from the 1800s. This painting is oil on canvas and it was painted by the Hudson River. The setting that Church used was soothing based off the painting because after looking at the painting multiple times, I truly feel that I can go inside it.
Lastly, the artist Leonard da Vinci made a self portrait during the era. If any male artist could paint himself, it would be him. He did a portrait of himself from 1452 through 1519. These artist made a big impact on the Renaissance because without them, there would be no art work at the festivals. The Renaissance Festivals were and are a huge thing to do now.
