Stravinsky’s compositions can be divided into three periods during his life; Russian Period, Neo-classicism and Post-war/Serialism. The Rite was composed during the Russian Period and it is here that we start so see a change in compositions throughout Europe as it set in motion towards Serialism. Rhythm, folk melodies, harmonies and form are all central points, it was through his innovative use of rhythms that Stravinsky came to be recognised by Sergi Diaghilev. The founder of Ballet Russes, Diaghilev discovered Stravinsky in Russia and invited him to compose for his ballets. It was here that Stravinsky developed his own style, which we see looming by his irregular rhythms in Firebird and Petrushka.
His two most famous paintings created using the square are “The Black Square” which Malevich described as the zero of form. This piece of art was basically a black square on white canvas but it took on a life of its own after it was exhibited, it was positioned in the place where Russians would place their Christian icons hanging to the right of the entrance up high in the corner, and became the symbol that Malevich was most known for. Nobody knows exactly what it was meant to represent but some people think it was showing his opposition to the Madonna. If you look
Albert Bierstadt’s The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak (1863) is a oil on panel that means it has been created on wood, and the oil in the painting allows easy manipulation for the choice of color in the panting. However, David P. Bradley’s Indian Country Today (1997) is an acrylic on canvas that means it allows for multiple possibilities for color and technique. Bierstadt and Bradley paintings both have similar forms and choices of hue. In Bierstadt painting the use of form allows the viewer to distinguish between the mountains, trees, and the grass within the painting. In addition, the hue in Bierstadt’s painting also allows the viewer to perceive the difference between the grey color of the mountains to the hunter green of the trees and grass.

My first recollection of art began at the moment when I saw Manet’s painting of a standing boy playing flute, of which it was printed on the cover of my 1st grade musical textbook. I thought it was magical to present a lively person onto a flat two-dimensional space merely using colors and brushes. Since then, I have been fascinated by the concept of art — a visual language that draws inspiration from life but goes beyond it.

After immersing myself in the art practice world for three years, my passion for fine art was fully kindled and exploded.
One aspect of Picasso's multifaceted concept of appropriation was his paraphrasing and borrowing of existing masterpieces which he would re-create with his own style. Picasso picked up appropriation because of four important events that took place in his life. The first was the decision by his artistic father to hand over his painting tools to Picasso when he was young, next was the death of Picasso’s sister Conchita, then the tragic suicide of his good friend Casagemas, and finally his visit to the Trocadero Museum in Paris in 1907 Picasso began his artistic career by emulating his father and turned into a child prodigy artist Picasso’s father gave up his brushes to his son because of his failed eyesight but the facts show that he didn't completely give up painting Picasso stated and vowed that he would give up painting if his sister survived; a promise he never intended to keep which
