    The 1873 masterpiece "Breezing Up", by Winslow Homer located in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is an oil on canvas painting that measures 23 3/13 X 38 1/6 in... The primary subject of this painting is a man with three boys in a small wooden sail boat that is moving along with what appears to be a fairly choppy sea. At the center of this painting is the stern of the sail boat. The oldest of the boys is sitting on the high end of the stern with his knees up and his bare feet planted ...

  • The Colors Of The Paint
    863 words
    After several frustrating attempts to visit a local art gallery, I was glad I finally had the chance to see the work of artist Sarah McEneaney. The gallery was very unique and unlike any other galleries I have visited. Her work is being showcased at The Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania. The artist currently lives in Chinatown and has a studio there. Most artists have something that makes their work distinct. Ms. McEneaney uses egg tempera and gouache instead of the...

  • Indifference To Painting In Today's Society
    550 words
    Painting: The Lost Art? I feel very strongly that there is an indifference to painting in today's society. In today's technology age, a high value is not placed on aesthetics such as painting. American society is drawn more to television programs and sporting events than to operas and art galleries. Very few paintings or other works of art would garner massive publicity in today's society. The artwork would have to stimulate the mind in a negative way to receive any attention at all. It would ha...
  • Focus Of The Painting
    1,140 words
    "Leonilla, Princess of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn " By Franz Xaver Winterhalter, 1843 Franz Xaver Winterhalter was born of peasant stock, in Mensenschwad, a small village in Germany's Black Forest. His early training, as an apprentice in a studio in Freiburg, began when he was thirteen. He learned engraving and he supported himself as a lithographer, while he studied painting in Munich (nga, par. 1). Even though he is known to be an academic painter, this seems to be a contradiction, as Webster's Di...
  • Influence Of Ruskin On The Pre Raphaelites
    1,077 words
    In 1849, Dante Gabriel Rossetti showed his very first oil painting during the first exhibition season after the formation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, alongside Millais' Isabella and William Holman Hunt's Rienzi Vowing to Obtain Justice for the Death of His Young Brother. While the group was short lived and never formed an official mission statement, "the combination of inexperience, collaborative ness, and sheer impact that distinguished the first years of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood i...
  • Ofili's Painting Dream
    1,948 words
    I first came across Chris Ofili's work at the 'Sensation' art exhibition in the Royal Academy of Arts London. 'Space and 'Popcorn Tits' were among five of his latest works being shown in the gallery. These two paintings caught my attention immediately, as they seem to be very similar to the sort of images which I had taken an interest in during the last few years. Although much of his work seems to be 'in your face', bright, psychedelic and very detailed, there is a vast range of influences whic...
  • Ellen Olenska And Newland Archer
    1,331 words
    Although Martin Scorcese does not sound like the logical choice to direct an adaptation of Edith Wharton's novel about manners and morals in New York's society in the 1980's the psychological violence inflicted between characters is at least as damaging as the physical violence perpetrated by Scorcese's usual gangsters. Martin Scorcese has made a reputation of conveying the essence of the human spirit through visuals and vivid colors. His work in "The Age of Innocence' is no different. Scorcese ...
