  • Understanding Abstract Art Artist Artists Subject
    1,735 words
    Almost all artwork in the western world has depicted a subject easily recognizable to the viewer up until the beginning of this century. Art without a recognizable subject matter, known as abstract art, is unique to this period. Abstract art hasnt been analyzed on its own in as much detail as other styles of art more easily defined. Instead it often times gets placed in a more general category called Modernism. This, perhaps, is a result of its diversity. Artists working in the abstract genre d...

  • Christian And Byzantine Art
    722 words
    Early Christian and Byzantine art started after Jesus death in the first century ranging and ending to the fourth century AD. The art produced during this period was secretive because Christianity was not a formal religion but as a cult; the Romans and rest of Europe persecuted Christians so the artist disguised their work with symbols and hints of Christian aspects. Christianity was the first cult to not involve rituals of sacrifice of animals and refused to worship an Emperor causing the Roman...
  • The Ideals Of Instrumental Music
    860 words
    The Ideals of Instrumental Music At one point in the study of the Romantic period of music, we come upon the first of several apparently opposing conditions that plague all attempts to grasp the meaning of Romantic as applied to the music of the 19 th century. This opposition involved the relation between music and words.

  • Greek Vase Painting And Aristotle's Poetics
    1,510 words
    Greek vase painting is one of the only surviving visual arts that we have that could possibly lead to historical connotations. Aristotle provides us with a particular way of viewing art that leads to an understanding of their time. Aristotle believed that Greek playwrights should write their plays with contemporary and local situations in mind, and by this they would gain the audience of posterity by virtue of universalizing their stories. I hope to illustrate Aristotle s Poetics through several...

    Georges Braque was one of the fathers of Cubism.

    In the 19 th Century, the visual arts had adhered increasingly closely to a set of fundamental notions of perspective, form and modeling which governed composition, especially of the two dimensional kind.

Although Pablo Picasso and George Braque would...
