2 Gothic cathedrals
Michael Freeman

I think the Cathedral has caught my eye. I am very intrigued by the way the 3D was built. When they built the high ceilings they weren’t thinking of man. They were built out of stone and masonry. They were thinking of god and were supposed to represent the King of Kings. This is the house of god and man is just visiting. There are many styles but I like the vaulted the best. It gives me a since of a way to God. The new architectural grammar was first coherently articulated in the ambulatory (chevet) of the royal abbey church of Saint-Denis, north of Paris, built under Abbot Suger between 1140 and 1144. Two concentric aisles are separated by slender columns: the outer aisle is covered by five-part and the inner aisle by four-part rib vaults. The resulting effect is one of clear spatial distribution and organic lightness: the bays are opened on all sides and the walls of the radiating chapels, no longer load-bearing. (Julien Chapuis)Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I have seen grey and tan color cathedrals. The main color is from the multi-color hand painted stain glass windows. The subject matter is to praise God or build a house to worship God. The Cathedral is the temple for god. It is supposed to draw you in and keep you. I think it is literally depicted because it is all abut God.
The message is that many Cathedrals look good but his/hers is going to be great. There are sometimes crosses put in the art work. I have seen the Virgin Mary in some of them. These buildings represent God so they have to look unreal to the human eye. “The mere detail of the Lancet style possesses the most exquisite loveliness of any style of architecture whatever. We might ransack all the edifices in the world, from the Treasury of Atreus to Henry VII's Chapel, and find nothing which can be for a…...

Art Genre Paper

...Art Genre Paper Peaches University of Phoenix March 23, 2009 MMus   Abstract Expressionism Genre art evolved from the Dutch Baroque painters in the 17th century. The term “genre” generally refers to the pictorial representations in various media types that represent events of daily living. Such representations can be people, places, activities, parties, a building’s interior or a scenic outdoor setting. These scenes can be realistic, imagined, or even romanticized by the artist. This paper will examine abstract expressionism’s historical development and evolution of style, characteristics of the genre, influential styles or its influence on other styles, the influence of styles on three different visual or performing arts, and any significant contributions to the development and evolution of this style. Historical Development and Evolution of Style Abstract expressionism was developed in the context of diversity and an overlapping of sources and whose major contributors came from the 1930s. During this time “The Great Depression” had begun to yield two different art movements: Regionalism and Social Realism but neither of these appealed to this group of artists. This group was seeking significant content in their work. Having broken away from accepted conventions in both technique and subject matter, these artists used work that was monumentally scaled and reared reflections of their individual psyches. Valuing spontaneity and improvisation their style...

Performing Arts Paper: Dance

...Dance The performance art that will be the topic of this paper is dance. Dance has been around since the beginning of time. It was also used as a basis of communication in many cultures. Dance has also been used in religious ceremonies and rituals, the telling of folklore and sometimes a recording of historical events. Dancing is also not restricted to humans. Some animals also use dance as a way of communication. Examples of the include mating dances and some dance to prove their superiority. Dancing is defined as moving rhythmically usually to music, using prescribed or improvised steps and gestures (Sporre 2009). Dancing is also divided onto various genres such as ballet, modern, and urban dance styles. Ballet dancing is technical formalized classical dance style that started during the Italian Renaissance. Ballet is first on this list because billions of people around the world are enchanted by this style and line up to see performances. Ballet comprises a highly theatrical dance presentation consisting of solo dancers, duets, and choruses.

Paper on Arts

...The Visual and Performing Arts ARTS/100CA March 9, 2014 In DQ3 of this week I stated that I had visited the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Visual and performing arts enrich our lives in a many of ways, they entertain us, and educate us about the world we live in, its past and the current time. It is also a way to record our times for future generations. I would like to go into further detail about the amazing artistic talents of Michelangelo. Michelangelo indeed possessed many talents, he was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance. When asked at first about painting the Sistine Chapel he was reluctant to do so, because his passion was sculpting. He decided to take on this project and paint. He used watercolors to paint the ceiling. Since he was painting on plaster this process is called fresco. Frescoes are made by adding pigment to lime water and then applied to a wet plaster wall("Life Art And Travel In Italy", 2014). It is the way Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo was by far the most famous, and greatest artist during the Italian renaissance. Michelangelo's great love was for sculpting, so he did very few paintings, but the paintings that he did do, are breathtakingly beautiful. What God brought to life with a fingertip, is part of Michelangelo's creation story. The Sistine Chapel is amazing, All I can think about is the length of time it had to take to fresco the ceiling. Michelangelo painted the...

...Jacob D’Alessandro Museum Art Assignment Professor Huntington April 29th 2014 The Daiitoku Myoo “King of Wisdom” was an important figure to the Heian period of Japan during the late 12th century and followed along with the idea of Buddhism and the continuation of Japanese styled art. During the development of Japan culture the Japanese went through many eras of changes in art and religion that led up and developed the Heian period. These eras were called the Jomon period which dated between 10,500-300 B.C. during this era clay ceramics were used especially in the northeastern portion of Japan, the Yamai period also used clay figurines. The Kofun Period was different because the “Government had developed centralized and could control the flow of resources from outlying regions to its center near Nara on the island of honshu”(Pearson Richards 5). They establishment of Haji made with a coil and slab technique. In the Asuka period they started importing three colored ware from china. However once Japan developed into the 8th century (Heian period) the establishment of dark color and green ware were seen in Japanese culture art work. Now what was the Heian period? There were to different era’s of this time the early Heian period and the late Heian era. The earlier stage of the Heian era is characterized by “attempts to the incorporate Chinese influence”(Shoten18). There was a distinct difference in the later Heian era regarding the style of the Japanese art. The works of......

...Reading Art – Understanding Iconography The art work that I chose was Pablo Picasso’s painting Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. The four roles that an artist take on is one to make us the public experience and see the world in new and innovative ways. I think that the second role that the artist takes is to make a visual record of places, places and events of their time. The third role that the artist takes on is to make functional things such as objects and structures more pleasurable and elevate these things with some sort of meaning. The fourth role that the artist takes on is to be able to give some sort of form to the immaterial which is said to be defined as universal truths, spiritual forces and personal feelings. The reason that I chose that particular painting is because I feel that it expresses an example of personal feelings spiritual truths. I think that in his painting he was able to find some sort of freedom expression from both the current and the classical French influence and he was able to make his own path. I think that with this painting he was able to think as they say outside of the box and do something that was very much his own type of work. I think that the iconographic significance of this painting was that this painting would become one of the most important ones of that century. This painting started out as a narrative brothel scene with five prostitutes and a two men who would be a sailor and a medical student. It was said that as Picasso began to......

...Art Paper Assignment For this assignment, I really wanted to specifically choose three pieces that conveyed not just my senses, but rather, I wanted something to reach out and pull me in, like a moth drawn to flames. As naïve as this might sound, I searched for pieces that had a certain quality that would take my breath away, make me feel as if time had stopped; I guess what I was searching for was something that appealed to my emotions. Even though the museum was filled with many beautiful pieces of art, I only found one piece that stood out and grabbed me in the way that I wanted. With the other two pieces that I chose, I found myself asking why the artists of those pieces would go about doing things in the way that they did. I found myself drawn to the last two pieces, not in an emotional manner, but rather enthralled by an intellectual curiosity. Regardless of the way I was drawn to each piece, I found the analysis of piece to be equally interesting. I will describe, to the best of my abilities, the physical description of each piece, their individual significance, what the pieces conveyed, and my personal reflections on each of the pieces. The artist of the first piece, entitled “Motherhood” (1930-1931), is Roberto Montenegro, a Mexican artist (1885-1968), and it was done through the medium of watercolor on paper. The first thing that is noticeable in the painting are the two figures, one feminine and the other masculine, that are seated with their backs......

...Art Appreciation Art cannot be classified into one category, style, or period. Art is very diverse, ranging from the beginning of the human being to today. Through the years, art has evolved dramatically from stick figures and two dimensional animals to three dimensional sculptures and intricate paintings. The artwork featured at the Seattle Art Museum shows many different types of art and features several different periods in which these artworks were created. Two pieces of art that stuck out the most at the museum was Albert Bierstadt’s Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast and Robert Arneson’s Pool with Splash. Both of these pieces of art showed character and seemed to almost speak to the viewer. Although there are many different periods and types of artwork, Bierstadt’s and Arneson’s pieces were the most intriguing. Robert Arneson is an artist who was born and raised in California. Robert was “encouraged by his father to draw” (Sward), so he followed his father’s advice and began creating cartoons for a California newspaper. After attending California College of Arts and Crafts, he began teaching “for a local high school, where he became interested in ceramics” (Sward). Although Robert had an interest in ceramics, he soon showed that he wanted to break away from the rules and boundaries of sculpting. He was part of a group that created pop art with their talents. In 1977, Robert completed his work Pool with Splash, where he is able to demonstrate the pop art style. Pool......

...Art and Society: Renaissance to Modern Art Paper Assignment I Analysis of the Museum’s Painting The museum’s painting (Attributed to Quentin Massys, Lamentation, c. 1520) depicted a scene in which several grieving people were gathered around Christ after his crucifixion. The thing that stands out about this painting is that Christ is not adorned in fine clothing, nor does he even appear divine in any way. The surrounding people do not appear to be priests or divine, but are normal, plainly garbed, people. Upon moving my attention to other areas of the painting, I noticed the detailed landscape upon which this scene was set. The museum’s painting can be recognized as a northern painting, even without prior knowledge of the artist who painted it. Two distinct features in this painting are strongly indicative of a northern painting. One of these said features is the landscape setting. Northern works of art deal strongly with naturalism. The second indication that this may be a northern painting has to do with the people gathered around Christ. It is easy to tell that these individuals are merely common folk. A southern painting would most likely feature angels or clergymen gathered around Christ, but within paintings from the north was the concept of humanism. In lamens terms, humanism is merely a system of thought in which human beings are of utmost importance as opposed to the divine or supernatural. In summation, both styles of this painting, naturalism and humanism, are...

Art Critical Paper

...Introduction This piece of art I chose to identify in my critical paper is Fig. 11-7 Fra Andrea Pozza, The Glorification of Saint Ignatius, 1691-94 Ceiling fresco, Nave of Sant’ Ignazio, Rome. The Artist of this painting is Andrea Pozzo born 30 November 1642 Trento, County of Tyrol, Holy Roman Empire and known for Architecture, painting and decorator work. The work the media used in chosen work as the book used is The Apotheosis of St Ignatius (1691-4) San Ignazio, Rome. The Dimensions of the work is 56 X 115 Ft. and the date the work was completed in 1694. Formal Analysis The Element of Design used in his painting was colors are used to create the illusion of three-dimensional space on a flat ceiling above the viewer, his acknowledged masterpiece of Christian art is the ceiling fresco painting Allegory of the Missionary Work of the Jesuits (c.1685-94) in the Church of S.Ignazio in Rome, a work which combined architecture and painting to an almost unbelievable degree, and became a textbook example of 17th century Catholic Counter-Reformation Art. The principles of the Design that Pozzo use I would say variety of building ceiling that were on the ceiling of building. But the Style he uses is abstract from my opinion because Pozzo uses it as a “Catholic Counter-Reformation art” that describes more stringent, doctrinal style of Christian art which was developed during the period c.1560-1700. Interpretive Analysis This painting that Pozzo painting uses various of......

...Pamela Castillo September 16, 2015 Art and Society: Renaissance to Modern Art Art History Paper Assignment 1 The Era of the Italian Renaissance was a time of reawakening of the Renaissance man. The arts, sciences, philosophy, and man being master of many things were all resurgence during this time. One particular painting to be analyzed for an example of Southern Italian style is Giuliano Burgiardini, Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist, 510. Giuliano Burgiardini painting conveys the typical Southern Italian style with its composition in a pyramidal fashion, the particular way the bodies are depicted, and use of chiaroscuro of shadowing that differentiates it from Northern style. To continue on forth, the composition of the painting must be taken into account as well as Giuliano use of color, light and shadow as evidence of Southern Italian style. It must be noted, the painting is considered historical because it is depicting a significant event in time whether or not the event actually took place. In this particular historical painting you see depicted Mary and Christ with Saint John the Baptist in a pyramidal formation. The pyramidal formation and the fact that there are 3 figures were often seen in Southern Italian style. You can see Christ and St. John the Baptist as the corner base of the triangle and the head of Mary at the apex (Giuliano). A straight line can almost be drawn from the foot of Christ up to the head of Mary down to the foot of St. John......

...caught my eye was the Marble Statue of Aphrodite- the so-called Venus Genetrix. This particular statue interested me because in high school, I was assigned the role of Aphrodite in a skit. Ever since then, her mythological story interested me. Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality. The sculpture that I picked seemed unique to me and different from the sculpture of her in the Art Through The Ages textbook. This piece was created in the Imperial time period, between the 1st and 2nd century A.D., and is from the Roman Culture. This piece classifies as a stone sculpture. Aphrodite is a Greek Goddess, which means the goddess of love. With that being said, the original sculpture was Greek and made of bronze. The museum states that Kallimachos created this particular sculpture. He lived in the second half of the first century B.C.E in Corinth. After examining the sculpture, it is portrayed as if Aphrodite is walking. It seems as though her body is leaning more on the weight of her left leg. A term that describes this is Contrapposto. This term is used in the visual arts that describe a human figure standing with most of its weight on one foot so that the shoulders and arms twist off-axis from the hips and legs. This leaves the statue of Aphrodite looking very naturalistic. This sculpture is classified under the Late Classical period. Greek artists at this time were fascinated with the movement and the nature of human bodies, which is what this statue......

Visual Art Creation and Paper

...Visual Art Creation and Paper Choua Thao ARTS/230CA November 17, 2014 Milinda Jaffe-Bork Visual Art Creation and Paper I came up with the idea of my art piece “Fall into Autumn” for my Visual Art Creation and Paper from a routine Saturday bike ride at the park with my ten year old daughter. Fall has always been my favorite season of the year. I love seeing the color changing leaves across the bright blue sky and the mixture of bright orange, yellow and brown scattered on the dark pavement. This sparked an idea in my head. I wanted to express the colors of autumn in my painting without having to paint actual leaves. I also wanted to express the random scattering of leaves against the dark wet pavement. I wanted to express fall the way I see fall in my imagination; dark and gloomy yet warm and bright all at the same time. In order to express my vision, I needed to think of what materials I needed to put it all together. I went to a local store and bought a 20 x 24 canvas, some fan brush and the acrylic paint necessary to express the fall colors I see in my imagination. I put a lot of thought into what colors I want to incorporate into my painting to express the dark and gloomy. The color black immediately popped into mind. I started to paint my entire 20 x 24 canvas with a thick layer of black acrylic paint and set it aside for 24 hours to dry. While waiting for the layer of black acrylic paint to dry, I thought about what colors I wanted to use to express warm and...

As I am preparing to finish this course I walk away with a greater appreciation for the art world. Art is all around, and we can all create majestic pieces we just need to express our inner most creative skill. As I visited the Art museums this semester my favorite of the two was the Pasadena Museum of California Art. The parking structure for the museum really sets up the individual for a treat! When I parked my car I spent about a half hour walking through the structure admiring all of the murals on the wall. My roommate actually accompanied me and we took a lot of pictures. It was really neat! What I love about this art museum is that you can really see the culture, of the art. The inside is an elegant white and the pieces featured are amazing. One piece in particular really stuck out to me. Robert Duncan made the piece, Wallpaper Design, in 1952-1954. While I was in the museum I read a little about Robert Duncan’s background, Interestingly enough, Robert Duncan was an American Poet, who traveled nation wide, before settling in San Francisco where he wrote his best book, “The opening of the field.” During his college years at Berkeley, Duncan was captivated by surreal art. Painter friends inspired him, to continue to make artwork using pencil, pen, and crayon. He also frequently illustrated his own books....
