He had started an almost herculean quest for perfection, wherein he had a hand in almost every stop of the process innovating and searching for new methods to produce a cleaner smoother page. The major innovations he used and created started with a change in the construction of the printing press by inventing a flatter sturdier bed so that he could create crisper more even letters. Then he created a new ink one that was blacker, shiner, richer, more even and faster drying. He was the first person “to exploit commercially James Whatman’s invention of wove paper, which was much smoother than the traditional laid paper; and he modified the printing process by using heated copper cylinders to dry the ink before it had time to soak too far into the paper” (Bob Miles, 2002). His quest for perfection took him seven years to print his first book, but it also meant that he could print typefaces with thinner cleaner more elegant
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.
The Renaissance and Baroque periods of music are two very similar and different eras. The Renaissance which began after the end of the Middle Ages in 1450 and ended the beginning of the 1600s, this is where the Baroque period starts. The beginning of the Renaissance period was compromised of sacred and religious music cultivating from the middle ages. Before the Renaissance period music had to be copied and re-written by hand, which was a very difficult task to do continuously. During the Renaissance period however, printing was invented, which made producing music easier and also changed a lot of other things in other areas.
Renaissance art is painted with very vibrant colors, King spends a great deal of time discussing the pigments for the colors, such as Aquamarine from Florace. Another characteristic is perspective, which is used notably in the painting “Noah and the Flood”. Perspective, like anatomical correctness, was something rediscovered in the 15th century from Greco-Roman works. The way the subtleties are painted is possibly the most Renaissance thing about the
Ukiyo-e paintings, also known as pictures of the floating world, were not merely decorative objects, but played a very important role in communicating fashions, customs, theatre and culture in general. They were served as a form of advertisement, like the illustrations on today’s magazines. Their creations was a fairly important and demanding affair, not merely an artist’s personal endeavor, but a complex undertaking involving many different people at different levels. In this paper I will argue that although all subjects of Ukiyo-e painting were tightly related to the Edo society at a certain time period, landscapes, which appeared at the last stage of Ukiyo-e’s boom, served as a totally different function to Edo society compared to the

Τhe recruitment of Shakespeare beyond Europe came through expansionist policies (mainly of England). Japanese needed Europeans to help them bring the modernity in various aspects such us sciences, education, arts, etc. Translation of Shakespeare in other languages has helped, of course, the spread of his work in many places over the world. Japanese theater has been playing many performances of Shakespeare’s work through the ages. As Mona Baker states in her text “Shakespeare Translation” many people have written about Shakespeare and everybody wanted to use him for their own purpose, like to comment on a political situation without being judged.
Introduction “Japonisme” describes all things Japanese that have influenced any type of art of artists in western countries especially Europe. Many artists were influenced by Japanese prints, and got inspired to incorporate ideas from the prints into their own painting and technique they used for their work. There are some similarities between the two different art, for example, the light and the sceneries of the outdoors are present, as well as the desire to reproduce the same scenery to capture the different times of the day and the different weather which the scene is in. However, they also have some differences, such as details, which we do not see a lot in impressionism, where they paint in a rather much blurrier style not really paying attention to the details in their painting. Japanese artists, however, do pay attention to the details of their art, such as outlining the elements in their prints
These products changed over time in accordance with the consumers’ interests and the technical development. Technical limits did not allow printing in color until the 1730s/40s and earlier prints were hand-colored principally with an orange lead oxide (tan-e) pigment to make them more appealing. With the introduction of color printing with two blocks (benizuri-e, lit. ‘pink-print pictures’) it was not long until multicolor printing was achieved, in 1765. The so-called ‘brocade prints’ (nishiki-e), were well received and sprang up like mushrooms.
The new concepts that Gothic architecture presented was the flying buttresses, which eliminated the need for heavy Romanesque walls. Another concept would be the clerestory and the rose window, which were two revolutionary new ways of allowing more light to come in to the church. Another concept introduced was tracery, and it allowed more decorative carving to be done to a stone. An intricate way of vaulting called fan vaulting was also introduced. Another concept that was presented would be cartoon, which was an example of Gothic art rather then architecture.
