If the classical piece is written in a higher key then they saw different mood responses than the classical pieces written in a low key (Jordan Mena, 2007). This study has provided that music is more than just a piece, of a lyric, beat, or instrument it has been proven that music can help people ...
History plays a very important role in the development of art and architecture. Over time people, events, and religion, have contributed to the evolution of art. Christianity has become a very common and well established religion, however, in the past it was hidden and a few people would worship this religion secretly. Gradually, Christianity became a growing religion and it attracted many converts from different social statuses. Christian art was highly influenced by the Greco-Romans, but it was immensely impacted by the establishment of the Edict of Milan in the year 313 AD. The Edict of Milan was so significant that scholars divide Christian art into two time periods, time before and after the Edict of Milan of 313.
The history of Art has continuously changed over time, and will continue to do so as long as humanity continues to evolve and time continues to go on. The author of Art History, Marilyn Stokstad, eases the reader into this mindset very early on. She explains that slight changes in the economy, climate, what is expected socially or cultural differences can shift the way Art is viewed and created forever. Early African Art and Gothic Art, both of which Stokstad clearly and concisely summarizes within two enthralling chapters, are both two unique genres, so different from one another that it seems nearly impossible to relate the two at a first glance. The way they structured architecture and artwork are vastly different, and are from incredibly different times yet somehow it is still incredibly to link the two together - whether it be through similar aspects of art or their subtle differences, these two styles are connected in more ways than one.
Subsequent to the study of different philosophies of art, as well as completing projects asking for personal preference in art as well as objective “fine art,” a personal philosophy may, by necessity, include subjective and objective facets. In determining what fine art is, the quality of universality is important. There also does not have to be a traditional presentation of beauty for a work of art to be fine art. Contrary to R. G. Collingwood’s philosophy, for fine art the culture and setting in which art is created should not matter, because if art is universal and timeless, meaning endures outside of where and when it was created. Evaluation of art can be subjective, but fine art is universally appreciated regardless of understanding background,
Popular music is any music since industrialization in the mid-1800’s and is preferred by the middle class. It covers many genres such as rock, country, R&B, hip-hop, and rap.
...) were taken from mass culture. Some artists duplicated beer bottles, soup cans, comic strips, road signs, and similar objects in paintings, collages, and sculptures. Others incorporated the objects themselves into their paintings or sculptures, sometimes in modified form. Materials of modern technology, such as plastic, urethane foam, and acrylic paint, often figured prominently. One of the most important artistic movements of the 20th century, pop art not only influenced the work of subsequent artists but also had an impact on commercial, graphic, and fashion design. The three different types of artwork by these remarkable artists all have different styles, but are appreciated all the same. If we are able to view past the surface of the painting and into the meaning painted here, we learn to admire and value the views trying to be set forth by each artist.
The modern artist, Andy Warhol, is one of the most well known pop artists of the 1960’s. Warhol purposely strayed away from the very emotional painting style of the Abstract Expressionists. He was influenced heavily by American Pop culture, borrowing several images as well as ordinary consumer products for his pieces. Ultimately he approached his art in a way to have commercial or advertisement look. Warhol’s goal was to strip down art of its magical qualities, and wanted it to look like anybody could do it. Warhol’s work explores a vast number of ideas in American Pop culture.
Pop art is an experimental art which surfaced in Great Britain in the early 1950’s. One of the major art movements of the twentieth century, it came into its own in the United States in the late 1950’s. This art form incorporated photographs in ways that had not been utilized before. It utilized mass-culture imagery and iconography, in contrast to the traditional tendencies of fine art. Pop art is considered to be one of the last modern art movements and served as a precursor to postmodern art. The art form is characterized by themes and techniques derived from mass culture, including advertising and comic books. Perhaps one of the most famous Pop artists, is Andy Warhol.
Pop art was used in many different ways and by many different artists to portray different things. Pop art uses a sort of comic style to portray things such as products and celebrities. Andy Warhol was able to change the way pop art was regarded through his unique style and painting of popular items and people; however, “many of his pictures have morbid associations: Mrs. Kennedy after the assassination of her husband, Marilyn Monroe after her suicide, ‘mug shots’ of criminals, automobile accidents, the electric chair, gangster funerals, race riots,” (Lucie-Smith, Edward 152). His paintings of these events and things became popular because of the idea behind and story behind them. Warhol used paintings of events and people of his time to further advance the Pop Art
Pop art got its name from Lawrence Alloway, who was a British art critic in 1950’s. The name “Pop Art” reflected on the “familiar imagery of the contemporary urban environment” (kleiner, 981). This art form was popular for its bold and simple looks plus its bright and vibrant colors. An example of this type of art is the oil painting done by Andy Warhol, “Marilyn Diptych” (Warhol, Marilyn Diptych) in 1962. The Pop art movement became known in the mid-1950 and continued as main type of art form until the late 1960’s. The Pop art movement, was a movement where medium played a huge part in the society, with it reflecting on advertisements, comic strips and even celebrities, like Marilyn. This movement also has a large background and artist that are deeply connected.
Imagine, a world full of wonder, mystery, and the fabulous - the world of Andy Warhol. He was an ingenious man who brought many spectators from all over to view his art exhibitions. Andy brought a “new color” to the art industry, and it held a new meaning to what art could be. This paper will discuss the definition of who is Andy Warhol, and how his artworks of the 1950’s and 1960’s relate to the theory of being “machine-like.”
Two years later on a poster in the mall at a Spencer's store I saw Warhol's famous Campbell's Soup Can work of art. At first glance I thought the poster was ridiculous because it featured such a simplistic, moronic image. Then, my artistic eye and appreciation for the eccentric took over, and I was immediately drawn into this cool and crazy phenomenon that Andy Warhol called art. I bought the poster and hung it in my bedroom. None of my friends had ever heard of Warhol and did not understand why I would display a 24 x 30 inch Campbell's soup can on my wall amongst the likes of Iron Maiden and Heather Locklear. I didn't either, but I knew I liked it.
Andy Warhol’s next series, depicting the mass-produced goods of Compels Soup cans and Coke bottles, captured the clean-edged look of commercially manufactured objects and made him famous. He also turned his art into mass produced objects. At the time many critics were up in arms over the banal subject matter. Abstract Expressionists were also angry at losing their place in the art market to a young upstart commercial artist. Campbell’s soup had a special significance to Warhol because it was his favorite meal as a child; his mother fed it to him at every lunchtime. Suddenly a bland object became art. Warhol’s images summed up the spirit of his society and times- from Marilyn Monroe to Chairman Zedong. The silk- screened image became a format Warhol used for many years. He became well known in the early sixties for his many ‘Marilyn’ silk-screens, of Marilyn Monroe, and for is used of the Campbell’s soup cans. His silk screened works would often use repeated imagery to render the subjects simply another artistic element. This celebrity silk screens and soup cans, simple as they may seem became the back bone of the pop art world, and are recognized more than any others as a Warhol work.
