  • Literature As Art
    1,527 words
    Without knowing first what art is, we will not be able to tell what good is art. Having studied several different definitions of art, I am most satisfied with Tolstoy's definition of art from his essay "What is Art" (pckt pg. 21). According to Tolstoy, art is a form of communication, a vehicle which the artist can use to communicate his feelings and emotion; it is a "means of intercourse between man and man" (pckt pg. 23). Tolstoy's definition of art is hardly based on the beauty of the work, ra...

  • Idea Behind The Art Work
    1,601 words
    A Comparison of Formal and Avant-Garde Artwork Modern art is a unique creation all its own, and since its beginnings there have been two very distinct groups present. They are the Formalists and the Avant-Garde. The Formalist group believes in the literal representation of the art work. They value the form used, whether it be how the colors are stressed or the techniques used, over the idea behind the art work. The Avant-Garde artists on the other hand are more interested in the creation of art ...

    I. Reading Clive Bell Sometimes I wonder about Clive Bell. After all, the man was obviously no fool. On the contrary-his every credential, every little detail of his career tells us otherwise: his life as the brilliant young student educated at Trinity College, hob-nob bing with other future intellectual heavyweights such as Lytton Strachey, Sydney-Turner, Leonard Woolf; the young scholar (described by friends as being "a sort of mixture between Shelley and a sporting country squire 3/4) who, al...

To be successful a piece of art must contain both elements. Both Alberto Giacometti's Woman with Her Throat Cut and Alexa dr Rodchenko's Oval Hanging Construction No. 12 are successful pieces of art...
