Sano di Pietro was also highly regarded in his time: Sano di Pietro was one of the most prolific and successful Sienese painters, the head of a workshop that satisfied the demands of civic and religious institutions in the city as well as those of private devotion. His production, technically always of a very fine quality, rich in decorative effects, and characterized by a brilliant palette, often contains motifs that appear monotonous and repetitive (Art in Tuscany). When studying these paintings it is important to notice its many similarities besides the obvious sacred theme and the subjects. To start, their Byzantine origins are based on the predominant religion of the Roman Empire: Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, and when that happened Christian art, too, began to take on a more official look. But by this time the western part of the Empire was falling to pieces, and the capital had been moved from Rome to Byzantium, in eastern Greece.
Artwork critique On April 20th, I went to the art exhibition entitled Homecoming: Painting by William "Skip" Lawrence. This exhibition took place at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center. It was composed of William Lawrence paintings which are nude response to many years of works, experience and joy of return to a beloved place. The happy colors and the women grace reflect by his work immerse the viewer into a colorful dream. The lighting in the exhibit was very bright, and I was able to see these paintings very well.
Nothing could compare to the fascination I had with the Gnathia-Ware art I encountered at the museum. I decided to take a trip back to the Museum to view the piece once again. I wanted to make sure this was definitely the piece to write my essay on. The second trip back was just as wonderful as the first. I am Glad I made the trip.
I was really impressed by the way he first starts of when he has an idea for a new creation and the outcome when his helpers are done with them. Chihuly’s chandeliers are very impressive. They range from symmetrical to random. Mostly on all of his chandeliers, he likes to add color strings in the inside and outside to give each piece more character. He adds swirls,
Chacon, Melissa Professor Folland Art History 72 11 December 2011 "View of the Yosemite" Thomas Hill (1829- 1908) was one of the most influential painters of the 19th century. He produced many fine paintings of California and is most known for the beauty of the American mountain scenery. In 1853, he studied portraiture and every day, genre- scene painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. According to the National Museum of Wildlife Art, during the summer of 1854, Hill visited the White Mountains in New Hampshire, where he met and painted with several artists associated with the Hudson River School. The school was known for their romantic depictions of the American landscape.
New Mexico Art and Artists: W. B. Oldham and L. Caton New Mexico has a vast history of paintings dating back to the 1900’s beginning with buildings. Throughout that time art and artists have expanded their passions and hearts far throughout what would be considered normal. Artists have the tendency to do that since I believe it is the artist’s imagination that actually gives us a portrait of the world through other people’s eyes. In this paper I am going to describe two very successful, talented, and emotional artists and their artworks by the names of W. B. Oldham and L. Caton. These two inspiring artists have achieved so much within the time given to them that they have touched deep into the hearts of painters and people alike.
The first theme one encounters is The Beginning. Paintings from the 1700s by local artists can be found here. The tour then moves into an Early Charleston theme, which contains works from the early 1800s. One piece I especially liked in this area was The Wreck of the Rose in Bloom by John Devaere, 1809. This is a marble sculpture that is stunning in its detail.
Arts2D Prof. Roehl Cantor Arts Museum Report The Cantor Arts Center in Stanford was a good pick to visit because of its unique collections displayed. It was my first time being inside the beautiful Cantor Museum, and it was filled with a variety of artworks of all different styles. The Jakob’s Traum (2010) by Anselm Kiefer was one of the artworks that caught my eye. The medium of the work used many objects like paint, clay, ash, and chalk on board with iron, resin ferns, cotton and linen dresses, and a ceramic ladder. Jakob’s Traum emitted such a ghostly vibe when you just stare at it.
