By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would incorporate the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, partial, or complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum.
This is why research is continuously being conducted. We have sought after knowledge of ourselves, our world, and beyond. The two disciplines are concerned with different aspects of human experiences. Science deals with impersonal encounters with the physical world, whereas Religion deals with the personal encounter with the One who transcends us. Testing Science and Religion There are different methods used for testing or proving truthfulness of hypothetical ideas.
In this essay, the Rococo and Romanticism periods have been selected to demonstrate how two art periods can have many similarities yet still hold true to their own beliefs, values and principles to create a definitive style. Antoine Watteau's painting, L'Indifferent, 1716, oil on canvas, 25cm x 18cm and Eugene Delacroix's Paganini, 1831, oil on cardboard on wood panel, approx. 43cm x 28cm have been selected to represent the Rococo and Romanticism periods respectively. Rococo was a style of art that followed on from the Baroque period in the early 18th century. The artists of this style typically depicted themes of "love, artfully and archly pursued through erotic frivolity and playful intrigue".
("Art Deco", Encarta) Cubism, a movement in modern art, especially painting, that was primarily concerned with abstract forms rather than lifelike representation. ("Cubism", Encarta) Abstract Art, is art that uses forms having no direct reference to external or perceived reality. ("Abstract Art", Encarta) Realism, in art is an attempt to describe human behavior and surroundings or to represent figures and objects exactly as they appear in life. ("Realism", Encarta) There were many types of art in the 1920's, but the main ones were Impressionism, Art Deco, Cubism,
We would try to examine diﬀerent styles in these historical periods of artworks; compare the changes; identify the images that symbolise the Indian lifestyle and landscape; discuss the issues of the past and present conveyed through art. Using a range of examples from the historical, indigenous and contemporary State Art collections, we would try to comment on orientalism, portrayal of women in Indian culture, use of artistic conventions, mediums, images and objects to depict Indian lifestyle and society. Identity, whether geopolitical, ethnic, gendered, institutional or personal, is not static. It is ﬂuid, it is changing and art as a medium participates in shaping this identity of the artist and the audience with time. An account based on a selected collection of art works will be
Installation art came to prominence in the 1970s but its roots can be identified in earlier artists such as Marcel Duchamp and his use of the readymade and Kurt Schwitters' Merz art objects, rather than more traditional craftbased sculpture. The intention of the artist is paramount in much later installation art whose roots lie in the conceptual art of the 1960s. This again is a departure from traditional sculpture which places its focus on form. Early non-Western installation art includes events staged by the Gutai group in Japan starting in 1954, which influenced American installation pioneers like Allan Kaprow. Installation Installation as nomenclature for a specific form of art came into use fairly
Defining the word allows us to look more deeply at art and bring more appreciation to the arts as a whole. Differentiating between what is art and what is not gives more credit to artists and can even open our eyes to some pieces that we never so much as considered to be art. As a result, art is the result of a human performance representing the artist’s experience that also gains a moving reaction from the audience Generally speaking, the vitality of “a human performance” in a piece art lies within the need for representation in art. What any piece of art represents derives from performance and the emotional thoughts and feelings put into it as a whole. Denis Dutton writes in his essay “Artistic Crimes,” It would be odd to say that the object somehow represents the performance of the artist, because to perceive the object is to perceive the performance…the object of our perception can be understood as representative of a human performance…the concept of performance is internal to our whole notion of art.
Before I develop our subject of discussion, it’s imperative that I define some specific terms in order to appreciate which is the most creative and innovative art style in history. Visual Arts: are art forms that create work which are primarily visual in nature, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, modern visual arts (photography, video, and filmmaking), design and crafts. Historically, fine arts were limited to paintings, sculptures, architecture and engravings. Today, the fine arts include visual and performing art forms, such as painting, sculpture, installation, calligraphy, music, dance, theatre, architecture, photography and printmaking. However, in some learning institutions or museums of fine art, the term fine arts is associated exclusively with the visual art forms (Visual art term).
 Fine art means that a skill is being used to express the artist's creativity, or to engage the audience's aesthetic sensibilities, or to draw the audience towards consideration of the finer things. The word art can describe several things: a study of creative skill, a process of using the creative skill, a product of the creative skill, or the audience's experience with the creative skill. The creative arts (art as discipline) are a collection of disciplines that produce artworks (art as objects) that are compelled by a personal drive (art as activity) and convey a message, mood, or symbolism for the viewer to interpret (art as experience). Art is something that stimulates an individual's thoughts, emotions, beliefs, or ideas through the senses. Artworks can be explicitly made for this purpose or interpreted on the basis of images or objects.
