was that he probably experienced a tragedy because of a storm.
- For example, people from hurricane Katrina will never forgot the disaster that happened
when their whole life changes because of nature’s raw power.
- People that experienced that storm had their lives changed forever.
- If Adolf experienced this same tragedy that is probably the story he is trying to tell
in this painting. - What makes me think this is because this
painting is about the power of nature and how it can impact human life significantly.

The painting of scenes with narrative content from classical history, Christian history, and mythology, as well as depicting the historical events of the near past. These include paintings with religious, mythological, historical, literary, or allegorical subjects--they embodied some interpretation of life or conveyed a moral or intellectual message. The historical events chosen would be iconographic, not only depicting important events, but ones of particular significance to the painter's society, as for instance, the signing of the declaration of independence in American history painting. The event, if suitable, does not need to have actually occurred, and artists

Raphael’s Process for Painting
Italian painter Raffaello Sanzio (1483-1520), or "Raphael", was a painter that lived during the High Renaissance period and was greatly influenced by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael are considered one of the three great painters of their time. Although you may know Raphael by the beautiful paintings he produced, he particularly gave great importance to his drawings. It did not matter to Raphael whether it was for preparing the work for future canvases or other works of art. Raphael is famous for the perfect elegance and three-dimensional space in

ICT Section 14 Dr.Quantrille William Kulesa Mannerist Painting Versus Baroque Painting Styles As a mannerist style painting Michelangelo Buonarroti's The Last Judgment is a perfect example. It was completed recently after the sack of Rome and reflects the mindset of that time perfectly. This is reinforced by the fact that it is done after but in the same vicinity as Michelangelo's previous works of the Renaissance. Caravaggio's The Supper at Emmaus on the other hand reflects Baroque style perfectly. It is clear to anyone viewing the piece the pure flamboyance of their actions as well as the illusionistic effects using shadows and perspective. The Last Judgment takes the

Personal Interest: What Appeals to me
What attracted me to this painting by mere looking at it was actually its size and what I thought it represents. By size I mean the visual size of the four outstanding images in the painting. The force of attraction with which the images are featured in the painting seem to draw my feet and eyes closer for a more critical view and my hands for a reach to feel its surface. The size of the frame is pretty large and towering if one faces it. Images in the painting include a beautiful, young lightly made up lady gracefully leaning by a majestic, strong looking, white saddled stallion as if for support. These two figures were standing under a four

The difference between Eastern and Western painting
At the beginning
One day, I read an article in Internet. The guy insists that eastern pictures have more complicated subject and sharp expression than western pictures; however, people evaluate the eastern picture with the western standard so that eastern pictures are low-evaluated. At the moment, I find myself to know nothing about eastern painting, even though I am one of the eastern people. I have learned lots of famous western pictures since middle and high school; on the contrary, no one explained the difference point of view between eastern and western painting. I have little information about eastern picture. Thus, I

“Modern western landscape painting is directly related to modern individualism”
“Modern western landscape painting” is fascinating and often very lifelike. The viewer of “modern western landscape paintings” often has the opportunity to interpret the painting individually. There are no requirements how to do it. It is exactly the same with the “modern individualism”. Each person is different than the other. Thus I totally agree with the main statement. I think there is a relation between “modern western landscaping” and “modern individualism”. This can be explained based on the paintings “The Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog” from Caspar David Friedrich and “Yosemite Valley At Sunset” from

The Union of the Soul with God
The painting by William Blake that I chose is the Union of the Soul with God.
The first thing that I immediately noticed is that the “union of the soul” is between a man and a woman. Blake seems so obsessed over the Adam and Eve theory and incorporates it in much of his work. Here, we see an older, stronger man, who is clearly supposed to represent God. He is seen embracing a young woman, holding her close to him. My next observation is that it appears that they are in a cave, or somewhere that is relatively isolated. I feel that this was done to make it a more peaceful scene. No one else can be seen, no signs of other nature, no other signs of life

The painters of such signboards were not seen as high-valued artist; nevertheless, favourable public reception surrounding a sign could be evoked as an indication of the imminent inception of a successful career. This shows that the lowest, most despised kind of painting could, and did, serve as an entrée into the world of high art.
Watteau’s last painting, the Enseigne de Gersaint, a gift to his friend, the picture dealer Edame Gersaint, was a signboard. It has to be acknowledged, that Watteau’s signboard however, is of a somewhat different nature. The

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

All his life Michelangelo professed to think of himself as a sculptor rather than a painter. In fact he was not a painter in the sense of such great artist as the Dutch and Flemish painters of the seventeenth century. Michelangelo used to say that sculpture was the lantern of panting, and the difference was like the sun and moon. Michelangelo believed sculpture required more judgment and precision, it was harder work. Even in his old age he disliked the manual arts and a distaste for painting. He signed all of his work Michelangelo the sculptor.Yet, of all Michelangelo's more ambitious projects only those in painting were completed by his own hand, while his many sculptural designs ether

Cezanne’s Still Life with Plaster Cast is not a traditional representation of a still life painting,
but this wouldn’t be expected of the avant-garde art of the modern period. The angles are
distorted and warped; making it difficult to establish from what position the spectator is
viewing the objects within the picture space. An example of this is in the twisting of the
plaster cast figure. The statues right shoulder and right foot are pointing towards the
viewer, his pelvis and torso facing the extreme left, and his left shoulder and foot twisting
towards to back of the room. This shows that when painting, Cezanne undoubtedly shifted
his positions to get better viewpoints on

In both paintings, Cezanne and Zurbaran have used the medium of oil on canvas, to depict a still life image of fruit on a table; however, the paintings are very different from each other. Some of the reasons for this are that they have used different colour palettes, with Cezanne’s painting being lighter and subdued in colour, compared with Zurbaran’s painting, which is mostly black. Different techniques have been used; in Cezanne’s painting you

The oil painting “Odysseus and Circe” by Salomon de Bray (approx. 1650) is supposed to indicate that an epic journey is underway. Even though this painting does not show an epic journey underway, it does show Circe’s island from Homer’s “The Odyssey.” De Bray based his painting directly on Homer's Odyssey. Circe is a sorceress whom Odysseus encountered on his wanderings. The Greek hero and his companions came to Circe's island on their journey home after the Trojan War. Although I know the journey, I would not know this painting represents it. Yes, I believe if I had not read “The Odyssey” I would have never known that this painting is set on an island.

This specific painting is located at the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection, gallery 240. It is a Georges Seurat masterpiece and was created on an oil canvas. The painting illustrates a crowded park, on a hot summer day. There are people looking out into the water, while others lie in the shade of the trees in the green grass, enjoying each other’s company.

Botticelli’s Primavera is an interesting piece of art. Like many works of art from the Renaissance, it has many scholars still arguing about what the painter was thinking when he painted this, in order to give some meaning to the figures and objects of the painting. The excerpts that were given to us helped to explain the painting from the perspective of two different scholars, who used various sources to help decipher the painting. Both were very interesting interpretations, however I found Zollner’s argument, as opposed to Zirpolo’s, to be

Gustave Courbet was quite simply one of the most influential artists of the 19th century. He had no interest in history painting, portraiture of heads of state, or exotic subject matter, for he believed that the artist should be realistic and paint everyday events involving ordinary people. He was a French artist who has been regarded as the father of the Realist movement.Courbet, (Jean Desire) Gustave (1819-1877), influential and prolific French painter, who with his compatriots Honoré Daumier and Jean François Millet, founded the mid-19th-century art movement called realism.Courbet, was born June 10, 1819, in Ornans.

I saw this painting in my church when I was at home over the summer. We had a guest speaker and he likes to incorporate art into his sermons, and I felt this painting really spoke to me as soon as I saw it.
In this painting by Titian, one’s attention is instantly drawn to the figure of Mary. Mary is the central figure in this painting and everything else is centered around her. The cluster of people to the left and right of Mary are the angels, cherubs, and saints who are praising Mary and exalting her.

David does a great job at directing the viewer’s eyes where he wants. Upon first looking at Gerard David’s lamentation (or as stated in the syllabus his deposition) the viewers eyes are directed towards St. John then to Christ himself. The main emphasis of the painting is the lamentation of Christ. The lamentation is emphasized by placing the characters in the fore ground in the center of the painting. The composition of the painting allows the viewer to see the whole painting while focusing on Christ’s lamentation. David made the painting so the viewer will see the background and the foreground as one then drawing the viewer’s attention to the foreground where St. John, Mary and Christ

As I stared at the painting "Palazzo da Mula, Venice" by Monet, the images were extremely blurry to me and the picture was somewhat indistinguishable. I really wasn't even sure what it was I was looking at. All of the images seemed to blend into each other making the picture seem almost as if the artist merely took his brush and stroked it across the canvas in a series of several colors and directions, almost as if he was not really sure what he was expecting out of the painting making it somewhat of an abstract piece of work as opposed to the impressionistic style he achieved with his finished product. There were really no defining points within the painting that caused it to stick out as

From 1947 Pollock began a series of 'drip' paintings and 'Lavender Mist' can be associated with this group of paintings, many of which were simply titled as numbers. Jackson Pollock's groundbreaking work, 'Lavender Mist (Number 1)' was painted in 1950. The painting is housed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, USA. Pollock created the painting using a variety of materials including enamel house paints which Pollock found easier to work with due to their fluid consistency, apposed to traditional, thicker oil based paints. At the time this experimental use of these paints was an innovative and fresh concept. The painting also

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
