... Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet: Marchesa Cunegonda Art can be a tricky thing. It is possible to look at a piece of art and not recognize it for what it is. For example, walking among the shelves of a library, you may come across a portrait of a woman. This may be a simple painting of the woman who helped found the library or it could be a masterpiece on loan. How does one tell the difference? Developing an eye for fine art requires something more than simply recognizing the paintings that are presented in art class as being masterpieces. It requires the ability to really look at the art in question, recognize the hallmarks of true craft and carefully evaluate the piece as a whole regardless of the setting ...

... Number] (Courtesy of Denver Art Museum, Levin) The evocative painting of S. Levin is a fusion of nature and fantasy. The objective of the portrait could be to show the tranquillity or melancholy of a woman, either in her desired or dejected surroundings or could be in her supposed illusion. The closure of eyes, flowers in a sea-weed fashion, a fish or a squid at the top back right corner, makes one comprehend that the woman in the portrait is under the sea water. She is either a mermaid or a native Indian woman in water. Only her torso is visible, thus, one cannot suggest either it’s a mermaid or a woman under the water. Her serene expressions depict her inner tranquillity or it could be a sign of ...

... Short Brush Strokes and Chaotic Lines The 19th century Impressionists discarded the conventional method of dark, detailed sharp images, while artists from the Abstract Expressionism movement rejected all forms of representational and figurative paintings, and thus marked the beginning of modern art in the first half of the 20th century. Considered as the leading figure of Impressionism, Claude Monet artistically rendered the beauty of nature and portraits by skillfully applying short brush strokes in vivid and lighter colors. His technique seemed to be spots of paints, rather than short, detailed heavy lines which the academic method used to apply to strengthen the subject being represented on the...

... Art: Comparing Duchamp and Modigliani Modern artists working since the early part of the 1900s have dedicated themselves to depicting the range of human emotions within the colors and lines of their work. The modernists, such as Picasso, focused on the emotions themselves with little or no reference to the symbols or issues of the times. They felt that the only way to portray the realism of the subject was to break the rules of art in order to explore images of pure emotion. Lyotard (1984) describes this process as an attempt “to make visible that there is something which can be conceived and which can neither be seen nor made visible” (78). This “something that can be conceived but not seen nor ...

When Constantine came to the throne, the empire was filled with many polytheistic religions. He outsmarted this problem by developing a Christianity that served the needs of every religion within the empire. Pre-Constantine Christianity was passive compared to the post-Constantine Christianity.

These sacred aspects of the rulers caused the art and architecture of this time period to be influenced by religion (Kleiner 212).

During this time period there was an increase in the height and overall size of the churches. The churches were increased in sizes so that they could accommodate the vast number of Christians that was still growing fast. The roofs of churches were vaulted and supported by thick stone walls, rounded arches and massive pillars. The creation of...

On the other hand, if the colors of the artwork are used in a specific way, that artwork would be more attractive. Imagine an artist is painting a picture of a black person.

The change affects not only the technical means for creating art, but also the concept of “aesthetic objects”. If we look at the history of art from the 1800s to contemporary art, we can outline four major lines of change. First, the concept of beauty has changed.
