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.
They used short sharp brushwork similar to the Post-Impressionist painters and I feel that Post-Impressionism seems to be almost like a more extreme version of Impressionism. However of the two styles I think that I prefer the Post-Impressionist style as I feel it is freer, bright and shows more emotion. I especially like the long broken and sometimes swirly brushwork which gives everyday scenes a more interesting and exciting feel .The use of bright and vibrant colours brings the paintings to life and creates a range of moods .The artist which I like the most is Van Gogh as I feel his artwork is really quite outstanding .He creates whole new and exciting visions of his interpretations on the things he sees. Not only did he create vivid and intense paintings but also he could express his moods and feelings through them.
Keats' Attitude Toward Art Revealed in His Poetry In order to be able to comprehend John Keats attitude toward art it is highly important to be aware of what he considers art to be. If it’s true art, it is certainly very beautiful and not heading toward becoming any worse in the future since “a thing of beauty is a joy for ever” ( Endymion: A poetic Romance). Art is simply frozen in time. However, a piece of art can not be taken as wonderful unless it has been adored by numerous people over a very long period of time. Since Keats tends to be focused on images, pictures and symbols he pays most of his attention to paintings, architecture or sculptures.
A good painting will allow one to dream into a world unlike their own, feel the terror, or serenity. Also by simply looking at a painting, one can tell about the feelings of the artist at that time. It is rare to not see a depiction of some natural landscape. With their talent, artists express their love and respect for nature through the simple brush strokes. Two paintings represent this fact.
Picasso had many artistic influences in his life, including Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and the well-known School of Fine Arts in Paris. Picasso contributed to artistic individuality when he started painting pictures in just one basic colour or one certain colour grouping. He achieved this when he did the paintings of the blue period and rose period and other artists later followed Picasso's example. Picasso contributed to artistic creativity by exploring and creating new art forms during his career such as Cubism-which was not limited to painting. This new style of cubism eventually led to the modern abstract art that is visible to us in the artwork of the modern day world.
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.
That is why I choose to do the painting, it gives you the choice too interpret it any way you see fit. Or it can just be a beautiful painting to look at, but the painting was so much more to me. It painted a thousand words for me.
And every time I see a bright, full of sunshine work of Impressionist artist or a strange, bizarre looking painting done by Cubist, I get a nervous feeling inside. Feeling of beauty and visual satisfaction, appreciation and delight for people who created the art we enjoy and use every day in our lives. Cubism and Impressionism broke away from the traditional style of painting. Both were not understood and appreciated in the beginning. Impressionism was a radical departure from tradition.
Before participating the ART 100 course, I really don’t know how are the elements of art and principles of design. It is interesting when I have some background about the art after finishing this course. This class has given me so much knowledge about the work of art. Now when I look at a painting, I can analyze the work of art based on the elements of art which is line, shape, forms, space, color, and texture; I also describe an overview of an artwork such as emphasis, unity, movement, or proportion. Personally, I really enjoy the paintings in the Renaissance because I feel these paintings have an indescribable attraction.
Like a spectator laying eyes on a beautiful painting for the first time, Dot holds the connection between the old and the new, the unrealized and the realized, and between the real and the imagined. These interlocking pathways between the characters are expressed best in the two songs “We Do Not Belong Together”, sung in Act I, and “Move On”, sung in Act II. Together, these songs, as well as others, explore Sondheim’s use of connection, which ties the relationship of people to art, but more importantly, to each other. We are first introduced to George as he is in the middle of painting his masterpiece, a real life work of art entitled, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. He immediately begins to exp... ... middle of paper ... ...have to move on.” They both have to, but it will take one hundred years, and three generations, before they have learned enough to come back together.
