I. Baroque (began around 1600-1750) a. The Baroque era began as artistic revolt against the stylization of Mannerist art and as means of implementing the demands of the Counter-Reformation Church, which sought to restore its religious prominence in the western world in the face of the Protestant threat (Duckett, 2011). The Baroque movement began in ital where artists expressed the triumphs of the Catholic Church. b. Artwork significant to the movement * Merisi, M.

Impressionism, both in content and in style, was an art of industrialized, urbanized Paris, a reaction to the sometimes brutal and chaotic transformation of French life that occurred during the latter half of the 19th century (Kleiner, 2014). b.

INTRODUCTION View point Art (and “works of Art”) is meant to be perceived and interpreted, by human organs of sense (eyes/ears). It is these senses that assist in the viewer’s interpretation/grasp of the meaning and content of an Artist’s work. Through my own experiences I agree on this point-of-view. I will like to transmit to my viewer(s) the emotions I received from Music, that have moved and or touched my soul, and my senses. The Musician and singer, through medium of Music, has connected with me but can also generate these same feelings in more than one way, creating a sociable feel as music is shared/interpreted.

...Art Nouveau April 10, 2013 Response Paper 1. How does Arts and Crafts influence show in Art Nouveau? Arts and Crafts developed in England in the 1860s. Art Nouveau is a rejection of the European Academic Style. They are both decorative, influenced by medieval, pre-Raphaelite art movement and many other aspects. They can both be understood as reactions to the Industrial Revolution but more so the Arts and Crafts movement. The Arts and Crafts movement stressed the importance of beautiful, handmade crafts and Art nouveau eventually evolved from this, especially in architecture. These new age architects especially Gaudi saw the way architecture was being produced most notably that of the example district in Barcelona and was appalled by it. It was like the architecture of a systematic machine much like that of the industrial revolution and he did not agree with it. He saw architecture not only as a functional thing but also a breathing, living and beautiful thing much like that of the goods produced from the arts and crafts movement. 2. Which are the differences between A&C and Art Nouveau? Art Nouveau originates in France and is characterized by the floral, natural forms, whiplash curves and extravagant fluidity of line. It is mainly based on the principals of nature and the idea that buildings or architecture was more than a means of living but rather an interpretation of the living world. They sought to breathe beauty back into the world and to create a......

Realism and Impressionism Movements

...Realism and Impressionism Movements Gloria Slezak ART 101- Art Appreciation Instructor Todd Leisek May 23, 2014 This essay will be about Realism and Impressionism movements. Both Realism and Impressionism movement was in the 19th century. The differences between these movements are that the Realism movement was in the mid-19th century and Impressionism was in the late 19th century. I will discuss two pieces of artwork that was done in these movements. One will be The Stone Breakers by Gustave Courbet and the other one is called Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette by Auguste Renoir. In this essay I will do my best to explain a little about how the characteristics and factors are reflected in these pieces of art. The Stone Breakers was a painting done by a French painter named Gustave Courbet. Gustave was well-known for his work of arts of still lives, self-portraits, females, common men workers, landscapes and many other common places. This painting was done in 1849 and is about hundred sixty-five years old. Addressed as the pioneer of the Realist movement Gustave set a unique artistic movement which caused a lot of disagreement among other artists. This movement demonstrated and signified the everyday life. Realism was exceptional and contentious in the sense that it broke away from the norm which was for centuries illustrating popular, religious figures, however Gustave ideologies were for artists to represent only what they can see or have lived. His painting was a......

Arts and Crafts Movement

...Select Committee on Art and Manufactures (MET) commented on how British-manufactured goods were lacking in quality. This indeed created the Arts and Crafts movement in 1860, where the movement rejected modernity and industry, mainly towards the output of British Industry. As history reaches the 2nd half of the 19th century, the mission of Arts and Crafts movement did not completely establish but instead it provided more opportunities for new designers and more options on the market for consumers. With great support of the design society one of the many talented designers stood out and influenced the style of that period, it was Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in Glasgow, Scotland, 1868 where the Arts and Crafts movement was happening. The time period where Mackintosh grew up was between the influences of Japan, which significantly influence his style later on. Mackintosh was part of the Scottish School, where a group of artists and designers establish new and strikingly modern style in 1880s. (V&A) They together worked in Glasgow and created decorative schemes for architectures and design. It can be concluded that Mackintosh grew up in an artistic environment and design was his main passion. He has three outstanding designs that were eye opening during the period and beyond, it is the Glasgow School of Art, The Gallery, Willow Tea Rooms and The Hill House. The Glasgow School of Art (1897) was truly Mackintosh’s work of art. He......

Feminist Movement and Modern Art

...feminist art movement influence expressionism? Gender equality is an issue that has gradually become a day to day affair in our society; it’s near impossible to avoid seeing it or hearing about it. However, gender equality as an issue is often associated with politics, not art, but as a result of it, feminists began to illustrate the issue through expressionist art forms. Feminist art was used to shock, educate and mock, as well as be used as an outlet for women to tell their story, which, through traditional values, was almost impossible. As a result, the expressionist art form evolved more than anyone could have ever imagined. The amount of new mediums and outlets that were explored and created as a result of feminist art was phenomenal. However, like with any other significant change, there were many critics that wished it hadn’t. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Traditionally, men were the dominant gender; the boss, and women were mere selfish pleasures used to sexually gratify a man. She must also cook for him, clean for him, bear his children and just simply act as the man’s object. These values carried over into the art world, where, female artists were virtually unheard of, they were only art works; objects of the male gaze. When women appeared in art, the majority were only half dressed or nude, as well as being placed in a vulnerable position; waiting for the man do dominate her. It was as the snowball effect started of feminist movements and......

Art History Outline

...Cesar Heyaime ART 202 Prof. Kristy Caratzola Our curiosity and our constant communication need a release, and in many cases this release takes its form through the different mediums of art. Art allows us to demonstrate whatever it is we please, and to express what our heart desires. Renaissance artists who shared this feeling created these following Masterpieces. Raphael – The agony in the Garden (Oil on wood) Raphael – Madonna and child enthroned with saints. (Oil and Gold on wood) Pietro Buonaccorsi – The holy family with the infant Saint John the baptist (Oil on wood) Bronzino – Portrait of a young man. (Oil on wood) Bachiacca – Madonna and Child (Oil and gold on wood) I chose these artworks because I am fascinated with the perception they had about “Rebirth” and their method to express it throughout art with their contemporary scientific knowledge. I also chose them to get the opportunity to learn more about this style (Renaissance) because I find it one of the most interesting styles ever to roam through the earth. -Raphael – The agony in the Garden (Oil on wood), Renaissance This piece shows Christ praying in the garden before his arrest with his disciples asleep around him. The small angel holding the chalice was an afterthought, replacing an earlier idea to have the chalice sit alone on the rocky hill. Raphael used not many colors in this masterpiece. Colors are low key rather than high key. There is more happening on the right side of the......

Art Movements: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism

...Art Movements: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism On the morning of April 25, 1874, 10 days subsequent to the Anonymous Society of painters, sculptors and engravers first collective exhibit, Mr. Louis Leroy, an art critic employed by the French newspaper Le Charvari, unwittingly supplied the moniker for one of the most momentous movements in art history. Figure 1: Impression Sunrise by Claude Monet (1872) Entitled The Impressionists, Leroy's opinion on the group's presentation, which was strictly an attempt to denigrate Monet's Impression Sunrise, instantaneously spawned much ridicule from the salons, colleagues and industry patrons, yet the assortment of artists, including Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Degas, Manet, Sisley and Cezanne, ironically were quite fond of the term and implemented it to describe their artistic vision. When Classicism invaded Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries to usher in the Age of Enlightenment its form dominated societal culture until the rise of "The Rejects" as the Impressionists were referred to. Classicism was based upon strict form and a structured focal point. Impressionism rebelled every established convention of all previous art forms. Its focus was based on freedom or a release from prior constraints and depicted what was actually seen versus the most ascetically pleasing vision. While Classicism strictly adhered to lines, contours and muted colors, Impressionism was much more akin to coloring outside the lines, so to speak. The......

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

Op art is a style of abstract art in which lines, forms, and space are organized in such a way as to provide optical illusions of an ambiguous nature, as alternately advancing and receding squares on a flat surface. What is interesting is it gives the viewer the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns. Art Deco is a style of decorative art developed originally in the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms, sharply defined outlines, often bold colors, and the......

An Outline of Kendall Watson's Theory "Art as Make-Believe"

...I. Title of Reading Art as Make-Believe: Kendall Watson II. Key Ideas and Issues Presented 1. Art, and the appreciation of it, are likened by Kendall Watson to the activity of “various games that involved pretending” (240). a. As kids make up these “principles of generation” (244) that transforms otherwise ordinary objects into “props” (243), and from these come “fictional truths” (243) that they let themselves “imagine” (245) and find pleasure in experiencing this alternate world, so is the process that undergoes when experiencing art. 2. A “fictional truth” is a proposition that is “true in some fictional world or the other” (243). a. A fictional truth is different from an “imagining” (244) in such a way that these fictional truths are “true” in the fictional world that one subjects himself to, whether or not he imagines them to be “true” (244). b. A proposition is then said to be “fictional” if it holds as real in the make-believe world. 3. A “fictional truth” is conjured from a prop and the principle of generation. a. The principle of generation is the “certain convention, understanding, [and] agreement in the game of make-believe” (244), which turn objects into props, “generators of fictional truths, that which make propositions fictional” (244). 4. Props are established by principles of generation, regardless of the observer’s active imagining of them as something else in make-believe. That which prompts imagination, moreover, may...

Art Movement Louis David

...Art Movement The art of Jacques Louis David embodies the style known as Neoclassicism, which flourished in France during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. David championed a style of rigorous contours, sculpted forms, and polished surfaces; history paintings, such as his Lictors Returning to Brutus the Bodies of His Sons (Musée du Louvre, Paris) of 1789, were intended as moral exemplars. He painted in the service of royalty, radical revolutionaries, and an emperor; although his political allegiances shifted, he remained faithful to the tenets of Neoclassicism, which he transmitted to a generation of students, including Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson, François Gérard, Baron Antoine Jean Gros, and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. In the late 1790s, a group of David's students, known as the Primitifs (Primitives) or Barbus (Bearded Ones), rejected the values of Davidian classicism in favor of an art whose linear purity and simplicity recalled archaic Greek vase painting as well as early Renaissance art. These challenges to the primacy of David's Neoclassical style set the stage for a radical redefinition of history painting around 1800 in France. Before the Revolution, David's major history paintings, though often invoked in relation to contemporary events, drew upon subjects from ancient history (2009.423) and distant civilizations (Death of Socrates, 31.45); his approach was in keeping with......

Art Timeline

...Art Timeline XXXXXXXX Axia College of University of Phoenix Introduction to Art ART 101 Introduction Breaking free of the naturalism of Impressionism in the late 1880s, a group of painters sought independent artistic styles for expressing emotions rather than simply expressing visual impressions, concentrating on symbolic meaning. The term Post-Impressionism was coined by the English art critic Roger Fry for the work of such late nineteenth century painters as Paul Cézanne, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and others (The Art Industri Group, 2002). Although often consciously at odds with one another and quite different in style, these artists are grouped under this common label that propelled art into the modern era. Rejecting the limitations of Impressionism and its strict and rigid beliefs, Post-Impressionism artists abandoned traditional subject matter and defined form with short brush strokes of broken color, thick, dark outlines, and simplified colors. In this timeline of Post-Impressionism oil paintings, the artwork exhibited will show the early stages of this French movement in early modernism, and the different techniques and uses of shape, color, outline, and form these artists incorporated to convey symbolic meaning and personal emotion.
