Whether he was using collage techniques, fusing, clippings from a magazine or a stroke of a brush he created powerful art that will be in minds forever. His visual recollections of the south drawn from real-life memories and stories are anything but usual. His painting “The Family” (1941) demonstrates Bearden’s love for the Cubist style and through this he addresses family’s complex relationships and rituals that were able to tie into my own real-life experiences. Romare Bearden demonstrates that you can take something simple and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful, and that is something he will always be remembered for. The painting, “The Family” can be easily be defined as a
1. What do you think is the subject of the painting? What made you arrive at that conclusion? The subject that catches my eye first is Diego painted on Frida’s forehead. But because it’s a portrait, I feel as though Frida and Diego are both subjects.
Many converts of China looked upon Buddhism with admiration. They also accepted Buddhism with an open mind. Buddhism tried easing people’s sorrows by explaining how to stop the miseries of their lives through the Four Noble Truths. (Doc. 1) Buddha informs others that even though life was filled with suffering, it was possible to stop sorrow if one did not crave anything.
He sure has mastered it because to me it flawless. There is just something about the painting that I catch myself staring, it’s just so beautiful. The Three paintings I chose were all unique in my eyes but had a couple of similarities as well. First off I found out that architectural and landscape paintings were very popular in the 19th century and the three artist I chose were landscapists. They also painted a lot of architectural paintings as well.
When he felt he had the right image he would then project the slide onto a canvas and pencil in both lines and details. The reason why Goings was so amazingly talented is because he could paint the photograph with such profound detail that the audience would be able to see detail that they would typically not be able to see in reality. "My paintings are about light, about the way things look in their environment and especially about how things look painted. Form, color and space are at the whim of reality, their discovery and organization is the assignment of the realist painter." The painting called Ralphs Diner (1982) is a great example of the vivid detail he used with light color and texture.
As Harriet and Sarah Tilt, Harriet’s friend and famous art critic, look through an exhibition at the Cumberland and Maitland Art Gallery, they come across a painting by Fritz Dangerfield’s who, in his career, painted the same painting over and over again. Sarah considers him a “mad artist” (115) “He painted the same picture over and over again but he would not be parted from the canvases, which he kept in his bedroom until his death.” (116) This painting was his only source of influence, was the only ‘word’ in his verbal universe, so it was the only idea he could recycle and reuse in a new context. One interaction Harriet and Sarah make, after Sarah explains this painting to Harriet explains
Napoleon Bonaparte said “A picture is worth a thousand words.” A picture, a canvas, a sculpture are all kinds of art. Art is for most artists a way to express themselves, a way to show what they feel, a way to share what they see, and also a way to inspire us to see more than what they draw, write or sculpt. Artists have different ways to work. Some try to be fantastic, romantics that can make us dream; others try to be as realistic as they can to make us think. The last group is the one I consider Augustus Saint-Gaudens to be part of.
However, it is incomplete and waiting to be drawn, as I continue to look forward with great aspiration and joy to excel. In the mural of history, our lives are portrayed as art. Our families’ memories are embedded in paintings, which are interconnected through experiences and differences. Within the grand mural of America is where my painting lies, adding diversity to the entire artwork of African American and Latino culture. Although my life began as a simple white streak of paint, several colors have swirled and smeared with me.
Daoism has also accumulated a large quantity of scriptures and documents, temples and monuments, and sculptures and stone inscriptions, adding to the cultural treasury of the Chinese people and making significant contributions to the progress of human civilization. ( Jiang Sheng: n.d: para:7) In the past, Daoism catered to the needs of the community in areas such as treating disease, pacifying ghosts, controlling weather and averting famine (Dawud Ilham, 2012). Today, the greatest mark of Daoism is the emphasis of luck in society. Good luck being linked with pleased gods and bad being associated with displeased gods. The fact that religion and philosophy are distinct does not mean that they are entirely separate, because they both address many of the same issues.
