Artistic symbolism is an effective power tool. The more art you possessed and the higher the status of the artist who created it was a direct symbol of wealth which equated to power throughout the medieval to modern times. Many monarchies, religions, politicians and political parties as well as average citizens have amassed power due to their commission of, acquisition and creation of many artistic pieces. We will discuss the important roles of portraiture as well as the emphasis on the requirement of a “professionally recognized” artist as well as the symbolism used within these portraits to expose the wealth and admirable qualities of its subjects/patrons. We will also discuss the ability of the artist to “rewrite” history through its interpretation of a subject. We will also discuss your blog posts which are due prior to lecture four.
