Another art experience I enjoyed was at the Mucha Museum in Prague. Mucha's work was very unique and artistic. I really liked his style because to me it seemed like a combination of modern and Victorian at the same time. The way the colors flowed with each other appeared very elegant and inspiring. The artists in these two places really inspired me and I really enjoyed their art.
An impressionist is an artist that creates a painting as if you would see in real life, for example a realistic painting (The Art Story Modern Art Insight. "Claude Monet.") I prefer Picasso, but Monet also influenced me in many ways. I always love to capture a moment, the sunset, the ocean, or just a person. But people just figure to take out their phones and take a photo, but that is very unlike me.
We are able to both ends of the space due to the mirror that he has chosen to include in the painting. This technique was very interesting at the time because it stimulated more of the viewer’s sense of space. The mirror evoked a feeling of being in the scene of the painting and witnessing it for yourself. "In its own way it was as new and revolutionary as Donatello's or Masaccio's work in Italy- Ernst Gombrich Van Eyck was a great oil painter and brought his paintings to life using a layering technique. Van Eyck would layer thin translucent layers of paint over and over again to build his objects.
These new forms of art or movements served as a changing time in the world?s art forms. Many art forms have been introduced into our culture, but the two that made an impact all over the world is Dadaism and Surrealism. Each of these forms used a new approach at the world of art. As Freudian culture swept the world a group of artist intrigued by his work, called themselves Dada. This simple word had no relative meaning to art or Freud, but this was the way they felt their work could be expressed.
Through the dramatics that were increasingly popular of this era the emotion in paintings were grasped more easily by the viewer. Likewise, the Baroque technique created an overlapping of elements and figures which was the opposite of the Renaissance’s definitive planes and isolated figures. Overall, these time periods influenced the world of art to great lengths and gave foundation to techniques that have been since improved upon.
Although he is mainly known for his painting skills. His painting skills was something that Europe had not seen before. His most popular painting was the Last Supper which was an iconic piece of art, history and religion. His art is said to be like nothing else: “marvelously endowed with beauty, grace and talent in abundance” (Vasari 254). This new style he brought to the Renaissance made people go crazy for his stuff.
George Seurat left the École des Beaux-Art and began to work on his own; he began to visit impressionist exhibitions, where he gained inspiration from the impressionist painters, such as Claude Monet. Seurat also was interested in the science of art; he explored perception, color theory and the psychological effect of line and form. Seurat experimented with all the ideas he had gained, he felt the need to go beyond the impressionist style, he started to focus on the permanence of paintin... ... middle of paper ... ...eurat was trying to express to viewer. I have always had a fondness for this particular piece due to seeing it in one of my favorite movie when I was a child; I remember the first time I went to see it, I couldn’t believe how it looked in person. I do believe that the reference of pop culture had made this piece an icon in the art scene, just like the Mona Lisa or American Gothic, if none of these painting were reference in today’s pop culture, we wouldn’t appreciate them as much as we do.
Leonardo’s childhood was surrounded by the works of many artists such as his master, Verrocchio, who influenced him immensely. From there, he began to develop his artistic interests along with his many other interests. It led him to become extremely successful. Leonardo Da Vinci used a technique known as Sfumato, softening colours and edges with dark glazes, from the Italian word fumo, which means smoke. By using this technique you can create a painting with depth that you cannot get by simply applying a colour mixed on a palette.
Edward Hopper was greatly influential on Crewdson. Both artists use their mediums to tell a story in one scene. They use windows, walls, and even doorways to frame their scenes. The scenes are framed in a way that leads the viewer to believe they are “looking in” at the subjects; it gives the artists’ works a voyeuristic quality that is both intriguing and mischievous. Like William Eggleston, Crewdson takes everyday occurrences and transforms them into something mystical and captivating, often with a hint of the sinister.
These two works of art both demonstrate a likeness of each of their subjects but use different styles, elements and emotions to captivate the viewer. In this essay I will detail why I believe Man in a Red Turban is the better portrait and why it is so effective. In the grand scale of time, these two portraits technically were not painted very far apart. But in terms of art styles of each of said time periods, they are very different. Van Eyck’s paintings were created at the dawn of the early Renaissance, which drew upon ideas like science, humanism and philosophy.
