'Factory, Horta de Ebbo', 1909 (oil on canvas)

Cubism was a truly revolutionary style of modern art developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques. It was the first style of abstract art which evolved at the beginning of the 20th century in response to a world that was changing with unprecedented speed. Cubism was an attempt by artists to revitalise the tired traditions of Western art which they believed had run their course. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of representation, such as perspective, which had been the rule since the Renaissance. Their aim was to develop a new way of seeing which reflected the modern age.


Andy Warhol – Mickey maus
the early morning of July 18 in Stockholm, a major theft occurred. Unknown broke the door to the museum Aberga (Abergs Museum), stormed inside and stripped from the walls of famous works of masters of the pop art of Andy Warhol (Andy Warhol) and Roy Lichtenstein (Roy Lichtenstein). Robbers also took a poster to the old film The New Spirit, probably thinking that this is also Warhol.
Police are looking for villains in the entire Stockholm, but the search has not yielded results. Stolen masterpieces of pop art experts estimated in 500 thousand dollars.
The museum is named after the famous Swedish filmmaker, artist and musician Lasse Aberga (Lasse Aberg). In the 1960's, he was carried away by pop-art aesthetics, and in 1970 started to collect various objects associated with the film studio of Walt Disney. In 2002, Aberg, opened for its «Disney» museum collections, where among other things, you can see the Mickey-Maus and other famous cartoon character, written or drawn by well-known contemporary artists. So the emergence of Warhol and Liechtenstein in the museum was not accidental - animation as one of the most…...

What Makes Art Art

...Britani Graves Art Essay 1 6-20-11 What makes Art Art? I believe art can not be defined. According to the Fall 2007 Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Definition of Art, by Thomas Adajan, "the definition of art is controversial... whether art can be defined has also been a matter of controversy." I think artists can take anything and put their twist on it and what they think it is and they can call it Art. Art is all around us in many forms and fashions. Art has evolved in so many different ways and can make people feel so many different feelings. Everywhere we look today we can see some form of Art and if you really take time to enjoy it and get in touch with your feelings everyone could learn to appreciate things a lot more. Art can be a very therapeutic way to deal with emotions people may not be able to express any other way. In the sculpture The Kiss by Auguste Rodin it is a true example of expressing a feeling of love. In the sculpture they look so passionate and in love it just makes you feel good.  I think any work that touches us on an emotional level – brings us joy or anger, tears or laughter – is art. But there is a cultural aspect to it as well, particularly in how we interpret art. Georgia O’Keeffe says, “I found that I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say in any other way-things I had no words for.” I really think our book Prebles’ Artforms by Patrick Frank says it good when he says, “Not all of us regularly create works of...

Egyptian Art - Art History

...Art History October 07, 2012 Art of Ancient Egypt – Chapter 03 The antiquity and continuity of Egyptian civilization were legendary, the period of roughly three thousand years during which Egyptian architecture, painting, and sculpture remained essentially the same. The main purpose of Egyptian art was to serve the needs of the royalty, especially the king and his retainers, both in this life and the next. Egyptian art reflected an idealized world, the ideal of the human figure developed early among the Egyptians, with body parts sized according to a set of standard proportions (Hartt 72). The poses of these figures are rigid, both feet planted firmly on the ground, with rigid knees, and the left leg placed slightly in front of the other. Egyptian art also incorporated certain fictions in order to express a larger truth, as an example, the beautifully shape of the pharaohs will mostly show the image of the ideal leader of Egypt, even if he/she is not exactly like that in reality, the message that the sculpture will pass is the power and magnificence. The great age of mature ancient Egyptian civilization can be divided into three periods: Old Kingdom - in this time period the Sphinx and Great Pyramid at Giza were built; the royal statues emphasize the majesty and divinity of the pharaoh. A curious detail about the colors used in sculptures is that usually to differ male from female, the artisans would utilize brown(men) and yellow(women), emphasizing that men were...

Art Appreciation

...As a child I suffered from selective mutism. I lived in a very small town and not too many people knew what to do with me. I remember doing a lot of therapy but if you ask my family what helped me, they would tell you it was art. Art was my way to express myself and say things I was not able to. Because with art everything is up to the maker, it lets kids experience a measure of success. This is one reason why art is so important for special needs children. I truly believe that art heals people. Due to me being a child dealing with struggles my parents encouraged me to have an interest in art. I guess you could say I had a form of self awareness somewhat like the quote by Ansel Adams. I wanted to speak but was unable to find my vioce. With art I was able to do this freely and without any worry of being judged or laughed at which I think was one of my issues. My seventh grade art teacher was an amazing teacher and mentor. I hated school, did not want to be there and I was struggling in my other classes but not my art class. I looked forward to being in that class. She taught me that whatever I was doing in my life, I could always use art to get through it. For example, math has always been a horrible subject for me. My teacher showed me how to use art while doing math work. It helped me pass my math class and I still use art to this day when I have a math prblem or I am helping my children. Now my children use art to help them with math...

...Modern Art History Modern art represents the headiest period in all of art history--a span of no more than 110 years that saw an explosion of movements from Realism, to Impressionism, to Cubism, to Abstract Expressionism to Pop and Op, with dozens of others in between and around the world. Hard-Edge Painting: Art History Basics 101 Hard-Edge Painting emphasizes the flat surface of the canvas or paper with clean, clear abstract shapes and surrounding fields of colors. These shapes and fields can be rendered in black and white or brilliant colors. The unity of the composition creates a unified presentation in the art work itself. Color Field Painting: Art History 101 Basics Color Field Painting is a branch of Abstract Expressionism that concentrates on colorful shapes and expanses of color which emphasize the literal flatness of the canvas or paper. Cubism - Art History Basics 101 An early twentieth century art movement that rebelled against Renaissance one-point perspective and illusionism through an emphasis on geometricity, simultaneity, and passage. Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque pioneered Cubism's ideas and style. Abstract Expressionism - Art History 101 Basics Abstract Expressionism or "AbEx" (a.k.a. Action Painting; a.k.a.

Ancient Art

...Ancient Art Abstract Ancient art has a way of telling a story of the past, how the people lived, what religious beliefs were followed and a hierarchy if any. Two works of art from the Greek and Egyptian periods dating from the second-century B.C (Aphrodite) and 2420-2389 B.C (Nikare and family) are compared to the styles of the art work and materials used to determine the meaning of the sculptures. The differences and any comparisons are discussed between the two sculptures and how they reflect in the time period in which they were made. Ancient Art Art is the form of sculptures, paintings or architecture and in the Greek and Egyptian art forms, symbolism and content are important to them on how they represent themselves. The sculptures of The Marble Statue of Aphrodite and Nikare and His Family are compared as to how the artists wanted to exhibit their works to the culture of their people. How the sculptures of ancient Greek and Egyptian differ. Form of the Work The Statue of Aphrodite is a three-dimensional sculpture made of marble common to those used in Greece's works of art (Metropolitan, 2012). The sculptor Praxiteles' used marble in most of his work to create the essence of the human body, although he had trouble with three-dimensional pieces always leaning on other forms or in a way as to describe the stance between the artist and his piece (Lapatin, 2012). Praxiteles used the color in the marble to represent his work, in the case of Aphrodite an off white...

Art Museum

...Museum Paper The David & Alfred Smart Museum of Art is one that is fairly small compared to many other museums in Chicago. The museum is located on the University of Chicago campus. Although it is a part of the campus, the newer, modern look of the building stands out from the campus’ gothic feel. When walking into the museum it was definitely evident that it belonged to a college campus. It was a Sunday afternoon, and many students and Hyde Park residents were enjoying refreshments in the café. The café was exactly what one would expect from a college café. Several black, round, tables, netted metal chairs, and white walls along with the black café counter created a contrast with the colorful pieces of art lining the café/lobby. After visiting the café, there are stairs and clear glass doors which lead into the art museum. The first section of the museum is the Elisabeth and William Landes Gallery or the Modern Art & Design section. This section contains many pieces from the 1880s to the 1950s. The gallery portrayed mostly European and American sculptures, sketches, and paintings. The most well-known piece in the room is the dining room furniture designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Robie House. After the first section, one can choose to go in a few different directions, leading into the rest of the galleries such as the contemporary art section which houses the State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970 which is an exhibit featuring photographs of landmarks and...

...-dimensional forms set within a rationally organized space using linear perspective. If we look at figure 12-7, we see the lifelike images of Mary, Joseph adoring the newborn Jesus with a host of angels and shepherds. One of the major differences from the northern art is the sympathetic expressions on the faces of the on lookers. Fig. 12-7 During this time in the Renaissance era, southern Europe rebirths the nude in the artworks as was a normal in early Greek art. Figure 13-11 below, Michelangelo’s “David”, the figure embodies the antique ideal of the athletic male, the facial expression on the other hand is a stark difference from the earlier arts showing emotional power and a concentrated glaze. Looking at figure 13-12, “The Creation of Adam”, Michelangelo captures the instance when god tasks him with the spark of life. The facial expressions and the body interaction are extremely evolved from the earlier Greek works and exhibits a more humanistic appearance. Figure 13-10, “Interior, Sistine Chapel”, Michelangelo painted images depicting the sincere empathetic expressions so well known to the Italian Classicism of Southern Europe.

What Makes Art Art

...Art is any form of self-expression. Art is something that is created that entertains, inspires, educates or makes a person feel something good, bad or unexplainable. Art is whatever the artist does or makes in which they deem to be art whether it is of value or not. There is a wide variety of art, some that people wouldn’t imagine as art, but a true artist sees art in every creation. Art is everywhere and in everything I see. Art is not just a painting, poem, drawing or a ballet. When I think of art I think of something somebody does to release their feelings. Different people express art in various ways. For example, someone who writes a love letter because they are unable to express their feelings through touch or emotion. Is this art? Watching Michael Jordan drive down the court and slam the ball. He was recognized for his unique ways for a reason. So, is this art? Making music, any type of music whether it is appealing to your ears or not. Is this art? All of these things are art to me. Art does not have to be beautiful or make you feel good to be defined as art; it is an expression of emotion. We are all artists in my eyes because we are all able to feel and create. All of life is art to me. When I think about art, its creator and the meaning of the creation I think the content is more important then the context. I don’t necessarily need to understand when and why it was created to form my opinion on whether or not I enjoy it. I like to find my own meaning...

Leonardo da Vinci has helped us create modern inventions that we have and are using today. Leonardo has made a new type of catapult that we have modernized into cannons, and then to guns. He was also famous for his human flying machine that was then made into planes. Da Vinci thought it would be nice if we could fly around. His idea was then thought of for planes and hang gliders. He has then made tools to then help us with our modern life. He figured out how to make wheels. Wheels are what we have on many contraptions to help with transportation. Leonardo da Vinci has help make modern life a whole lot easier (“Italian Renaissance”).. Leonardo da Vinci taught artists how to use dark colors and light colors to bring out the actual art. Leonardo da Vinci was most famous for his art. Leonardo was most famous in the Renaissance where art was more focused on humanism and nature.

...1. The work of art that is depicted as being created at about the same time is the Kota Reliquary Figure. 2. Futurism is a group movement that originated in Italy in 1909. It is one of several movements to grow out of Cubism. 3. We would pronounce it Mahr-sell doo-shahm. 4. The title of the golden painting is “Nude Descending a Staircase.” Calvin says this to his mother because he’s referring to Duchamp’s painting. Chapter 1 1. The colors that I see in the slides seem brighter than the colors that are in the book and it makes the artwork seem more lively or real. Also, I feel like you can see the texture of the twine and rope better and this makes the artwork look better and easier to appreciate. 2. I would agree with the reaction where people like the artwork. I think that it is a very interesting and different piece, and I think it is very creative how she factored in wind into her 3D art piece and this makes it really fun and easy to appreciate the thought that the artist put into it. 3. Avant-garde means for an artist or their work to be ahead of their time or at the forefront of a movement, or for their work to be in opposition to established ideas. I think that avant-garde applies to both Nude Descending a Staircase and Her Secret is Patience. I believe that it applies to Nude Descending a Staircase because it was not well accepted or understood at its time, also it brought the dimension of motion to Cubism so that was ahead of its time...

What is interesting is it gives the viewer the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns. Art Deco is a style of decorative art developed originally in the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms...

Fine Art

... Name Instructor Date Compare and contrast pieces of fine art Fine art has been considered as the major source of history, which has articulated several formatives that depict on the essence of humanity. Based on different sources, fine art has navigated some comparatives that portray the nature of history that equally aligns some prospects that site on the major differences on art. To start with, the major goal of the fine art is mainly to promote a unique active and thoughtful approach towards analyzing some specification of art history. Therefore the process requires taking into consideration by comparing and contrasting some essentials of the two pieces of art that attempt to approach the critical thinking analysis. This assumption invites availing the simple analysis of the information that ideally addresses the craft of an effective subtlety that is undertaken on the process. Every step that is articulated on the preparation of the early course on the fine art is depicted as an informative exhibit that is consolidated in organizing the discrete bits in a larger notion. This is well crafted on the practice of the fine art that distinguishes the level of thinking in the history of art. Based on that note, the major exercise that reviews on fine history has added the benefit of the emerging success on the concepts of well-crafted images of fine art. This equally announces the expected comparison that focuses on this practice. The completion of the moral abstract by...

Art History

...Miguel Graham May 1, 2015 Renaissance to Modern Art Dr. Dwight Smith What I’ve Learned in Renaissance to Modern Art I’ve learned so much information in the class titled “Renaissance to Modern Art” and I want to start off with my new found knowledge of Art History. According to Wikipedia, the history of art is “the history of any activity or product made by humans in a visual form for aesthetical or communicative purposes, expressing ideas, emotions or, in general, a worldview.” This field of "art history" was developed in the Western world, and originally was focused solely on European art history. Gradually, over the course of the 20th century, a wider vision of art history has developed. Thus, art history is now viewed to encompass all visual art, from the sculptures in Western Europe to the paintings in China. Also according to this source, the history of art is often told as a chronology of masterpieces created in each civilization. It is said that the Wonders of the World are the epitome of high culture through the stories that are conveyed. Art history spans the entire history of humankind, from prehistoric times to the twenty-first century. No matter what you choose to observe, you can find visual arts that challenge someone’s creative side and inspire them to find beauty in the things manmade. In modern times, art history has emerged as a discipline that specializes in teaching people how to evaluate and interpret works of art based on...

Art Patron

...Mini Paper Analysis: Patron Webquest Sean Lall January 15, 2016 History plays an essential role in the shaping and transformation in our everyday lives. It tells about one’s existence, or helps in tracing back to past events to lead to be. A comparable example would be of an individual trying to trace back to his/her great grandparents generations ago, to their existence today. In the art culture, that exact principle is followed, and is led by patrons who then paved the way to the ever transforming landscape. A patron is a person who supports with money or gifts. Prior to the modern era of artists, a patron is said to be someone who usually entered into a contract with someone for a specific service or product that he/she would like. On the other hand, patronage is associated with the act of giving approval, support or endorsement towards a cause or event. Two patrons that I have identified are Pablo Picaso and Jeff Koons. Pablo Picaso (25 October, 1881 – 8 April, 1973) is recognized as one of the most influential and recognized figures of the 20th century due to his contributions to art. He was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer to name a few. Born in Spain, he studied from his father who was also an artist, professor at the school of fine arts, and curator for the museum in Malaga. Pablo had moved to Paris in 1901, where he practiced new styles and experiment with a variety of art forms. Through this period is where he...
