The art world is composed of all the people involved in the production, commission, presentation, preservation, promotion, chronicling, criticism, and sale of fine art. Howard S. Becker describes it as "the network of people whose cooperative activity, organized via their joint knowledge of conventional means of doing things, produce(s) the kind of art works that art world is noted for" (Becker, 1982). In her book, Seven Days in the Art World, Sarah Thornton describes it as "a loose network of overlapping subcultures held together by a belief in art. They span the globe but cluster in art capitals like New York, London, Los Angeles, and Berlin." Other cities that can be classified as

Even though it might not seem like it, art is a very broad topic. When talking about art there are different categories. There is the art of literature, the art of music, the art of dance, the art of theater, and the art that we are most familiar with, such as drawings, paintings, and sculptures. If a person’s writing is good enough, then their work is published in a newspaper, as a book, or in a magazine. If a person makes good music then they can join an orchestra, join a band, or make records. When a person is good in theater then they are able to direct shows or movies, or act on Broadway or in Hollywood movies. A person who can create good art, if good enough, can be shown in

The trip I took to the Getty Museum was very interesting and informational. I had always wanted to go to the Getty and now that I had purpose in writing a term paper on art of ancient civilizations it was worth my time. I mainly learned about art in Egyptian, Greek and Roman culture while I was there.
Before the portrayal of the human body or any piece of art can be critiqued, you must understand the artist's culture. As man evolved over centuries, his views of the body and art transformed. My tour definitely showed the drastic changes in different cultures' art. Each culture and era presents very distinct characteristics. Through time and experimentation, we have

This paper defines and illustrates the Rococo movement. Rococo art was a highly sensual, light hearted movement and the art of this period greatly reflected a common way of thinking during this time.
Art History II
Rococo, meaning literally embedded pebble started in France at the beginning of the 18th Century, gaining popularity during the reign of Louis XV. (Rococo 1700 - 1775) Art from the Rococo movement was a reaction to the darker, heavier Baroque movement. The death of Louis the XIV brought about big changes to art and the patronage of art and the Rococo movement was one of these changes. (Kleiner, Fred S., and Helen Gardner)

This piece of Akkadina art is one with fine sharp lines curls lips and is made to resemble the akkadian ruler from this timeline. I do believe that thid piece was shaped from either a modled or was carved from lime stone but when you look at it, you can see that the lips are pouted and the brow is angery looking the hair is curled. The color is a balckish gray color and the left eye is destroied but it is a good piece of art. The other thing about this piece is that it is life like and it is of the akkadian king.

Review: “Brides of Anansi: Fiber and Cotemporary Art”
Going into the exhibit I was not entirely sure what I would be looking at. Initially I believed we were going to see a lot of paintings, particular oil on canvas based on what we were doing in class. However when I actually went inside and got to take a look at all of the pieces, I was pleasantly surprised. I felt like many of these pieces were very good, however the ones that really stood out to me were Xenobia Bailey’s Paradise Under Reconstruction in the Aesthetic of Funk along with Joyce J.

The role women and their influence in the twentieth century started when they were challenged, by men, not allowing women to be included in the art exhibits and therefore the feminist movement had begun. The feminist movement was started with four women artists: Yoko Ono, Adrian Piper, Carolee Schneemann, and Eva Hesse who participated in and prompted the artistic directions. The purpose of the feminist movement was to protest for equal rights, sexism, gender roles, and reproductive rights so women could be allowed in the American art world. In 1971, art historian Linda Nochlin published an essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” In this article she argued

[Q] During much of Christian history, the church was a chief patron of the arts, and much artistic work was “Christian art.” Today, the church does little to support the arts, and most artistic work is secular in nature. In fact, much art produced today considered “Christian art” is poorly done, commercial, or appeals to a popular audience and lacks enduring value. Further, many fine artists who are Christian feel alienated from the church. What can the church do to support serious art and artists? How can we encourage young people with artistic talents to use their gifts

Propaganda is the activity of spreading ideas and information with the aim of influencing the public towards specific actions using a planned employment of persuasive methods. Art played a huge role in every propagandistic matter throughout history. Among the first rulers that made extensive use of Art as a form of propaganda were the Roman emperors. They were well known for their expertise in using portraits, reliefs and monuments to influence and manipulate public opinion. The strength of their artistic medium resulted from the fact that few people had the occasion to meet the emperor in real. Thus, the image that was circulating around the vast empire through coins, sculptures and

Is Leadership an Art or Science?
Over the century, there are tons of theories about leadership. Just like trait theories, contingency theories, situation theories, behavioral theories, and etc. As I believe, different theories could demonstrate leadership in distinctive ways. Besides there are not only personality traits or characteristics of the situation could allow certain peoples take the charge. There are much more going on.
Accordingly, regarding the question of leadership is an art or science. People probably will choose either art or science or both. So what leadership really is? I will say there is no correct answer. As we acknowledge that science and art are

Sun Tzu’s Art of War
According to historians, the exact date of the publication of the book, The Art of War, is not known. In fact, they don’t even know who wrote it. However, it is believed that It was written by a Chinese military leader named Sun Tzu and that he lived in an era where China is at war with nations aiming to conquer their territory and overthrow them, hence creation of the book can be attributed to such situation.
When we think of war, the first ideas that would come into our mind are chaos, pandemonium, disorder, and other words that could be attributed to destruction. Also, wars occur often because parties are fighting over something. In a business setting, same goals

Oscar Wilde was a passionate admirer of art, an intellectual dandy and a keen advocate of the Aesthetic Movement. Through his essay The Decay of Lying: An Observation, Wilde uses an obviously self-modelled character named Vivian to set out a series of doctrines which detail his personal philosophy on the relationship that exists between art and life, and the rolls that they should play. Chiefly these are: art should only express itself, expressing life and nature makes for bad art, life imitates art more than art imitates life, and that lying is the true aim of art . When applied to his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray these doctrines add an extra layer of meaning to the themes already

Oscar Wilde is famous for his claim “All art is quite useless”. Do you agree with him? Why or why not?
“All art is quite useless” is a line from Oscar Wilde’s <The Picture of Dorian Gray >. When Wilde wrote this book at that time, it was when people were obsessed with practicality, with everything needing to have a purpose beyond itself. He suggested that art doesn’t need any purpose; it doesn’t have any further use. It exists simply to exist. In some way, art is useless because it doesn’t really serve any practical use. But just from these reasons it is hard for me to decide whether art is useless.
I thought deeper and began to understand why Wilde quoted that “All art is quite

Throughout the course of time art movements are bound to change and come about. Through these changes also comes different analysis and critiques of the works being made. Greenberg and Alloway were big critics in the 40s and 50s, but by the time of the 1960s artists begin to write their own critiques. Two artists who take part in writing their own critiques of the evolving conceptual art movement are Sol LeWitt and Joseph Kosuth. In “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art” and “Sentences of Conceptual Art,” by LeWitt is best defining conceptual art by the process in which it is made. The logic or rather no logic behind the simplicity that is conceptual art and how it is to be understood is the focus

One believes that graffiti is more of an art than a crime. When one judges art as a crime
then what creativity will we have in this world? This world has run on art ever since the
beginning of time starting when cave men expressed their stories in the form of figures on stone
walls. Graffiti is the same thing for our modern society, people draw on walls to tell their stories

Music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence. Its common elements are pitch, rhythm, dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture. The word derives from Greek μουσική .
The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions, through improvisational music to aleatoric forms. Music can be divided into genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and

Dadaism or Dada was developed during World War I. The movement was born, as they say, in Zurich by refugees from mostly Germany and France. Dadaism used visual art, literature such as poetry, theatre, and some graphic design. It was a protest against the war. Because of the horrific events going on in the war, Dadaists used everything from obscenities, scatological humor, visual puns, and any object that would do to thrash nationalism, rationalism, materialism and anything which they felt added to or contributed to the war. Dada used prefabricated materials such as photographs, paintings and mass-produced objects in their art works. They used the

The ideology and culture of the Renaissance and Baroque Eras are reflected in artwork from the eras. Renaissance art seems to the moment before an event took place and the Baroque art is characterized by great drama, rich deep color, and intense light and dark shadows. Baroque artists chose the most dramatic point, the moment when the action was occurring. For example Michelangelo designed his David composed and still before he fights against Goliath. In Bernini's David in the Baroque era is caught in the motion of hurling the stone at Goliath. “Baroque art was meant to evoke emotion and passion instead of the calm rationality that had been prized

These concepts were the basis of Rosenberg’s most famous and timeless notion, that which he called “Action Painting”, which would later be described as Abstract Impressionism. It was the avant-garde work of artists that abandoned the object oriented goals of painting and painted “just to paint”, and not to make anything else but a painting, in it's most basic essence. For Rosenberg, these works of art revolved around expression of the inner man, and were thus purely self creation. These ideas of the artists perspective being looked through to criticize art was much more than a stones throw away from the narrow and intolerant path of Greenberg’s

Introduction: Works of art vary greatly across genres and time periods. While it may seem that these works originate solely from the minds of specific individuals, artists are influenced by the styles and characteristics of earlier periods as well as social and political events of the time. Works of art are often a continuation of or reaction to earlier artistic styles. For example, classical art from ancient Greece and Rome was revived during the neoclassical era. Cubism was a reaction to the style and characteristics of the earlier European tradition of realistic painting. The purpose of this task is to analyze, critique, and understand where creativity and inspiration
