Environment and the surroundings can influence both the artists and model and the expressions they paint into the painting. The background of each artist can affect the way they paint and what they choose to paint. I chose to study major artists that influenced significantly the history of art like Rembrandt and Gustave Courbet, and more modern artists that were influenced in later stage like Daniel Barkley and JKB Fletcher. My theme in my A-Level project was the disguise people use to hide their emotions and characteristics. We live in a world where people want to hide their emotions so they won’t be vulnerable to their surrounding environment.
I believed that Picasso renditions of this piece along with others to put his own style on it. He does this with a lot of paintings. He makes his own rendition of other peoples paintings but with his style. He paints the picture the way he envisions it. He rarely keeps what was in the painting and just keeps a few things and then puts his own style on it.
In the first show, the critics picked up on the title of one of Claude Monet's Paintings, Impression Sunrise, and decided to call the whole group 'Impressionists'. The name stuck, and what was supposed to be just a nickname, ended up being the accepted name of the group. Impressionist artists tried to convey the look and feeling they perceived by the immediate world that surrounded them. Particularly for Monet, this meant painting out of doors, trying to capture the effects of weather, nature and light on the spot, which would be very difficult for a “normal” artist. A very rapid sketch, like Impression De Santis 2 Sunrise, looks as if it was entirely painted on the spot, but often he must have needed to finish his more elaborated pictures away from the scene, after the lighting effects had changed.
These paintings are inspirational to me because they are amazing but also they speak to me. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is the saying I love mentioning to someone when they talk about a painting or picture. To me, a picture is not just words, but the emotions and meanings that are given from them. When I see “The Persistence of Memory” I imagine about time, and how people just worry about it and waste it. In “The Persistence of Memory” I feel like there is no time, everything is ‘melting’ away, nothing matters.
While there Picasso experimented with many of the different avant-garde styles happening at that time which is seen throughout his career as an artist. Many other artists, such as Cézanne and Toulouse-Lautrec, influenced Picasso. Paul Cézanne was known both for his technique of putting down on canvas exactly what his eye saw in nature and for the qualities of pictorial form that he achieved through a unique treatment of space, mass, and colour and inspired Picasso to express his own impression of current events through his artwork. Another influence was Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec who was known for being a leading postimpressionist artist whose paintings, lithography, and posters contributed much to the development of ... ... middle of paper ... ...ng planes, and he made the guitar's sound hole a projecting cylinder (World book). Picasso's creation of cubism led to many of the abstract art styles utilized in the modern day world.
It is no surprise that he was an open-minded critic, attentive observer, inspired participant, and devoted lover of various art forms besides his renowned poetry. The concepts of impulsive creation which are evident in art are also apparent in Cummings’ poems. From the first publication of his works to the last they have remained free of confining syntactic and rigid guidelines. The exact way an impressionist painter may use potent color to convey the essence of his paining; Cummings uses vivid words to attract the reader and make their subconscious feel his point before their mind understands it. The use of this rare technique is how he has originated a small miracle in each individual poem.
Ekphrasis poetry can be written as either an exhibition of the sensational aspects of an artist’s life or as a act to explicate the artwork itself. Gehrke balances both options by opening the gaze of the audience to witness the life of the artist but also the process, aftermath, and desire to paint. Gehrke respects the creative process of the painters, but also gives voice to the torments of the artists, their subjects, themes of death, life and love. The book as an entire collection gages the immediacy of art and time, because life is but a fleeting glimpse of fractured memories and light. Moreover, the images presented in Gehrke’s collection are intertwined capturing the urgency to paint, the transcendence of the artist from their body, as painting is an out of body experience, but also maintains the humanity of the artist’s by examining the fascination of the human body, medical crises and emotional turmoil.
Therefore, Manet believes that art should reflect ideas of the preset not ideas from the past. However, Edward Manet tended to paint and get inspiration from real life. At first sight I did not like the painting; it shocks me too. When I know the stories behind it, I like it and I found it very interesting. It motivates me to search more and know more about the artist, movement, and painting and what going on in that time.
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.
When approaching Artworks from Contemporary Abstract painters, the subject matter dives deeper in meaning than the actual artwork before the viewer. From an outward appearance, some paintings from artist, such as, James Little, juxtaposed to works by Odili Donald Odita, have a lot of formal similarities within the uses of geometrical shapes and balancing colors. However, understanding the means to why each artist paints the way they do, will actually become rather different from first approaching and accessing the paintings. The exhibition, Same but Different: Not Seen from the Naked eye, investigates the deeper meanings between similar art pieces. Some older masterpieces from Barnett Newman and Mondrian are also present within the enclosed venue.
