Transcript

  • 1. by Gulnara M. Alkaeva
  • 2. Italian renaissance National Gallery of Art Raphael The Alba Madonna oil on panel, transferred to canvas c. 1510 Central Italian Painting by The Italian High Renaissance depicts Mary, Jesus and John the Baptist in a typical Italian countryside. All three figures are staring at the cross.
  • 3. Northern Renaissance National Gallery of Art Jan Van Eyck The Annunciation oil on canvas, transferred from panel c. 1434/1436 Netherlands The picture depicts the Annunciation by the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she will bear the son of God. The Seven gifts of the Holy Spirit descend on her on several rays of light from the upper window to the left, with the dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit following the same path.
  • 4. Northern baroque National Gallery of Art Sir Peter Paul Rubens Daniel in the Lion’s Den oil on canvas c. 1614/1616 Flemish Daniel, the Old Testament prophet, has been hurled into the lions' den, but he hasn't been eaten. God has preserved him. The stone has just been rolled away, and the miracle revealed, as later at Jesus's tomb.
  • 5. Italian Baroque The National Gallery of Art Domenichino Saint John the Evangelist oil on canvas Late 1620’s Italian One of the greatest works by the Italian Baroque master Domenichino is one of the most important examples of his work in this country. Classic characteristics of Baroque are the heroic pose and focused, serene gaze.
  • 6. Rococo National Gallery of Art After Elizabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun Marie-Antoinette oil on canvas after 1783 French Her style is generally considered Rococo and shows interest in the subject of neoclassical painting. In her choice of color and style while serving as the portrait painter to Marie Antoinette, Vigée Le Brun is purely Rococo.
  • 7. Romanticism The Mertopolitan Museum of Art Eugene Delacroix The Natchez oil on canvas 1835 French Delacroix explained the scene: "Fleeing the massacre of their tribe, two young savages traveled up the Meschacébé [Mississippi River]. During the voyage, the young woman was seized by labor pains. The moment is that when the father holds the newborn in his hands, and both regard him tenderly."
  • 8. Neoclassicism The Metropolitan Museum of Art Pompeo Girolamo Batoni Diana and Cupid oil on canvas 1761 Roman, Italian The picture was considered the finest Batoni had ever painted. The figure of Diana is based on the celebrated ancient statue of the sleeping Ariadne in the Vatican, which Batoni has invested with extraordinary warmth and feeling.
  • 9. impressionism The National Gallery of Art Honore Daumier Portrait Busts bronze models c. 1832/1835 cast 1929/1950 French Poking fun and exaggerating qualities to make a political or social statement was a talent honed by 19th century caricaturist, sculptor, and painter, Honoré Daumier.
  • 10. post impressionism The National Gallery of Art Auguste Rodin The Walking Man (L’Homme qui marche) bronze models 1878-1900 casr ~1903 French This work of Rodin’s ‘sketchy’ impressionist sculpture personifies the latter part of Rodin’s career: the dynamic pose of a partial figure, including the powerful stance.
  • 11. Cubism The Metropolitan Museum of Art Juan Gris Violin and Playing Cards oil on canvas 1913 Spanish Gris had developed a colorful Cubist style of broad, angular, overlapping planes, a style that within a year would evolve into a fully formed Synthetic Cubism.
  • 12. dada The Metropolitan Museum of Art Max Ernst The Barbarians oil on cardboard 1937 French Max Ernst was one of the most enthusiastic leaders of the Dada movement in Cologne. His surrealist paintings are steeped in Freudian metaphor, private mythology, and childhood memories. One of his major themes centered on the image of the bird, which often incorporated human elements.
  • 13. expressionism The Metropolitan Museum of Art Willem De Koonig Woman oil, cut and pasted paper on cardboard 1950 American De Koonig shows every stroke is a visceral record of speed, energy, agitation, and tension. But the tensions are coupled with humor in equal measure. A garish woman, her hair a gaudy, flaming orange, stares out at the viewer, her oversized eyes having been incised into the wet paint with a pencil point to reinforce the effect.
  • 14. Surrealism The Metropolitan Museum of Art Salvador Dali The Accommodations of Desire oil, cut and pasted printed paper on cardboard 1929 Spanish Dalí, who was given to hallucinations and paranoiac visions, cultivated these outrageous subjects for his paintings, rendering them so meticulously that they were unsettling in their clinical matter-offactness. Such pictures exemplified the Surrealist preoccupation with dreams and the unconscious.
  • 15. last 20 years The Metropolitan Museum of Art Elizabeth Murray Terrifying Terrain oil on shaped canvasses 1989-1990 American In "Terrifying Terrain," Murray effectively mates deliberate design with happenstance and disjointed forms with an underlying structure, merging the artistic freedom of the action painters with the clean essentials of the Minimalists. The result is an exhilarating jigsaw of overlapping layers and shifting planes that coalesce into a shallow, three-dimensional wall relief.
