    From 1430 to 1623 A. D. , four sculptures of the Biblical David were created. From the master artists Bernini, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Verrocchio came the most famous Davids of the world.

    The pieces of art I will be comparing and contrasting are the three statues of David, by Donatello (Donato di Niccol'o di Bet to Bard i), Michelangelo (Michelangelo di Ludovico Buonarroti Simon i), and Bernini (Gian Lorenzo Bernini). The statues are modeled after the biblical David, who was destined to become the second king of Israel. Also most famously known as the slayer of the Philistine giant Goliath with a stone and a sling. The sculptures are all based on the same biblical hero, but diffe...
  • Two Periods Of Buddhist Art In India
    2,944 words
    Two Periods of Buddhist Art in India Less than 1% of the population of modern India is Buddhist. Therefore, it is reasonable to say that Indias importance for Buddhism and its art is mainly its historical influence. Not only is India the country where the historical Buddha, Sakyamuni, lived and taught, but it is the land where the first images of the Buddha were produced and where Buddhist iconography and symbolism evolved. Being a student whose family originates in India, I am interested in som...

    David Awaiting Goliath Before going to Eleganza, the only sculpture that I had ever seen, besides the small statues in neighbors' yards, was in books that I had looked at. When I entered the museum I noticed the many sculptures that occupied the small space. After walking around, observing the different sculptures and listening to Dr. Roselle speak, I came to a decision that David was my favorite statue in the museum. The complexity, texture, and realistic characteristics of Michelangelo's Davi...

  • Mary Magdalene Sculpture Jesus Life
    951 words
    The first sculpture that I observed was Mary Magdalene. This was a sculpture from the thirteenth century, made from limestone and polychrome. Mary Magdalene was a Jewish girl from a gentile town called Magdalene, which gave her the name of Mary of Magdalene. Mary was a sinner and many were surprised when Jesus let her touch him. When Jesus touched her he said, "Many sins are forgiver her, because she has loved so much." () Then to Mary he said, "Your faith has made you safe go in peace." () Mary...
  • Analysis Of Centaur Abducting Woman With Fallen Lapith Man
    800 words
    Perhaps the most interesting period in Greek sculpture is the Classical period. During this glorious period of unbelievable craftsmanship, numerous pieces celebrated the Greek's infatuation with fable and war. The sculpture, nicely titled Centaur Abducting Lapith Woman and Fallen Lapith Man, is a wonderful symbol of the artistic period and image of war. Sculpted somewhere around 447-438 B. C. , the sculpture was carved out of solid marble to produce a beautiful, and yet horrifying scene from a b...
  • Finegan's Symphony In Three Forms
    484 words
    "Symphony in Three Forms" Donald Finegan's sculpture, "Symphony in Three Forms", consists of three figures of abstract twisted metal on cement bases. Fiberglass was sprayed on thin strips of bronze and then molded into the shapes they are in. The metal was twisted in abstract ways to represent the flow of music and different stages in a musical piece. The left figure has many pieces of metal twisted in about the same manner almost parallel to each other. The figure in the middle is taller than t...
  • Cross Currents University Sculpture One
    359 words
    In the sculpture Cross Currents, by Albert Paley, the size, environment, and design of the sculpture help it to create a unique meaning describing the university. It is located in the courtyard on the Florida Gulf Coast University campus. It's a rather large sculpture which stands almost as tall as the two story buildings on either side of it. The size seems to represent that of college, and the open composition of the way the pieces reach up on the top show how it's spreading out and growing to...

  • Definition Of Style Baroque
    310 words
    The Baroque style of art and architecture developed in Europe, England, and the Americas during the 17 th and early 18 th centuries. The baroque style is characterized by an emphasis on unity among the arts. The baroque artist achieved harmony in painting, sculpture, and architecture and created new spatial relationships. In painting and sculpture this was achieved by means of highly developed naturalistic illusionism, usually heightened by dramatic lighting effects, creating an unequaled sense ...

  • Golden Age Greek Criticism Of Henry Moores Reclining Woman
    501 words
    Golden Age Greek Criticism of Henry Moores Reclining Woman Both the shape and body of the Reclining Woman sculpture totally tear down our standards as Golden Age Greeks. Not at all can I make out whom this sculptor is representing. Sure I can make out the basic female figure. However the head is way too small in proportion the rest of the body. Maybe Henry Moore has not yet finished this piece. Did he make a mistake in the development of the chest area This could be the case. If still this is a...
  • Donatello Facial Expression

    Donatello was quoted saying I was the first-a revolutionary. I was creating a new kind of sculpture before the others were even born (web). Donatello was wise beyond his years. Little did he know that he was so right. He had many of breakthroughs in marble, bronze, and wood sculpture, including the first male nude since the Romans and the very first equestrian (horse and rider) statue. Donatello can be considered a genius. He rediscovered the classical past and at the same time he took sculptin...

Greek art has had and still has a tremendous influence in art, as we know it today. I have chosen pieces that illustrate some of the major evolutions of sculpture through ancient Greece.

    Describe the work of the sculptor, Henry Moore looking at the influences on his work, his ideas, techniques and personal style. Henry Moore's sculptures were most commonly very simple solid images. Many were of women, perhaps to celebrate their role in society and show their strength. Moore's mother was a strong woman and it is apparent through his work that he viewed women as the crux of the family. The women depicted in his sculptures are sturdy and heavy looking which confirms this. One scul...
