Studio Art: Exam Writing What is the relevance of self-portrait to the artist and to the viewer? Cite examples from the exhibit. The relevance in self-portraits in to understand how the artist views themselves using different techniques of art to show it. During this semester a self-portrait that I made was the, This Is The Real Me, where we used an Andy Warhol effect using pictures of ourselves created using silkscreens and having inc pass through the gaps. Having many images of myself I used it to create a poster of many self-portraits.
Thus, I think Mona Lisa is the most suitable artwork for me to mediate different meanings produced since the Renaissance until the postmodern world. The Renaissance’s painter Leonardo Da Vinci finished the portrait in between 1503-1504. There are multiple hypotheses about why the portrait was created: some of them says that it is a self- portrait of the painter by noting that the eyes, nose- tip and mouth of Mona Lisa actually line up with a known self portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci. Other claims that the sitter and the painter had a special rapport. Thus, the sitter appeared to look at the viewer (actually the painter) straight in the eye with ease.
Andrea del Verrocchio's art embodied the style of the Renaissance because he portrayed realism and humanism, made three-dimensional paintings and sculptures using perspective and other skills. Verrocchio was born as Andrea di Michele di Francesco de’ Cioni on 1435 in Florence, Italy. Before being a painter and a sculptor, he was a goldsmith and took the name from his master he was studying under, Giuliano Verrocchio. It is indicated that he was also trained under Fra Filippo Lippi as a painter. As for his painting career, there is only a few paintings he is fully credited for or recognized as his work.
Through painting, one could reach a further understanding of Tao or rather repossess his ancestors knowledge of Tao. The Tao, with its associated notions of oneness of "spirit and matter," the external flux of all things, the resolution of opposites, and the significance of the nonexhistant, was the cornerstone on which Chinese based theirpainting and their theories of painting It is the search for understanding that drives the artist-scholar to paint. Shen Chou, an artist from the Ming Dynasty tells of his new found knowledge and cleansed mind which he has reached through only experiencing nature. His words are translated from the calligraphy in Night Vigil (above, center). Through mental abstinence and by sitting alone by the light of the flickering candle long into the night, I must pursue both the [outer] principals of things and the wondorous [inner] workings of the mind.
Prof. EAP 120 6 May 2014 A Deep Reflection on Three Paintings Art seeks particular idealisms within each time in history whether it is imposed upon them by an emperor, pharaoh, king, or pope, or self-imposed by the artists themselves. This may be especially true of these painters, Tiziano Vecelli (Titian), Edouard Mamet, and Pablo Picasso, all with their own ideals. Two aspired to their own personal vision, while the other followed in the footsteps of his contemporaries. Titian's Venus of Urbino, 1538, was painted for Guidobaldo II, duke of Urbino. This was probably a mere representation of a courtesan in her bedchamber elevated to the status of classical mythology, yet there is no evidence when the work was commissioned that it was intended as anything more than a female nude for the private delectation of the duke.
What if you were to see the exact same object as another person but fundamentally view it in a different fashion? John Berger, the author of Ways of Seeing claims that this in fact does happen within the culture of art. Art is the term that over years has described a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities but is most often understood to be in reference of paintings, film, photography and sculpture. In Berger’s “Ways of Seeing” he takes an in depth look on art, which challenges the way people view art within themselves along with separate interpretations. Berger dives into the modern “issue” of how people now look at art versus how previous people viewed art and how reproduction has affected this in his eyes immensely.
A2: Post Impressionism The Post Impressionism Era began between 1880 and 1910. Many people believe it started as a result of an exhibition by Roger Fry called “Manet and the Post Impressionists” that occurred between November 1910 and January 1911. Artists from this period include Vincent Van Gogh, Andre Derain and Paul Cezanne. (Post Impressionism, 2015) (Vincent Van Gogh, 2015). The Post Impressionism Era artists used techniques derived from the Impressionism Era, but also showed passion in their art.
Contributions Made to Colonial America: Artists founded new ways of thinking about the human relationship with the natural world. When the artists started exploring the artistic potential of the Hudson Valley, the transportation revolution and the rise of industrial capitalism were changing the region. The Hudson River Valley soon became a gathering place for the landscape painters. The tourists began exploring the scenic areas that were in their favorite paintings. The school was a locally famous and soon the painters began traveling to
“Landscape of Orpheus and Eurydice” – Nicolas Poussin Artists from the Baroque period used Greek myths as sources for their art over and over again. In the following sections I am going to talk about a specific Painter named Nicolas Poussin (1549-1665) and his mythical Painting “Landscape with Orpheus and Eurydice”. To make it easier and better to understand this painting, I am going to give a short summary of the story behind the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice and afterwards I will take a closer look at the painting itself. Nicolas Poussin used the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice as background for his painting “Landscape with Orpheus and Eurydice”. The story behind this Greek myth is about Orpheus, son of the God Apollo, and his beautiful wife Eurydice.
“Rody believes that painting should involve more than simply applying assorted colors to a canvas. It entails mental preparation and subject research, as well as a sense of history and a belief in the person to be painted, regardless of whether the subject is a national hero or not.” (Aguilar, 1999) In The Battle of Imus, Herrera proves to be a message bearer first and a painter second. Moreover, if we apply the concepts in F. Landa Jocano’s The Vision of the Future Must
