  • History of painting helps us understand why and how artists have made paintings, and how centuries of exploration and change in painting have led us here. although reasons for paintings are different, artist have used painting as a means of visual expression. their paintings helps us understand their lives, history, likes and religious convictions.\n
  • Cave artists nearly 20,000 years ago, used art to imitate nature. They painted remarkably lifelike pictures of bison, deer, horses and other prehistoric animals as part of their hunting and fertility rituals. The immediate reaction of researchers was that such sophisticated painting could not have come from our Upper Paleolihic ancestors (late stone age) but after finding other cave paintings, it seemed genuine . more than 300 decorated caves in south western europe that date to the Upper Paleolihic period.\n3= map of sites of late stone age art\n4= harvest scene from a tomb\nLater, Egyptian artists, also painting on the walls, used stylized forms and symbols to document historical events and everyday life. \n

  • early renaissance artists were also highly religious and symbolic but painters began to rediscover and emphasize more naturalistic forms. gradually they turned their attention to subjects that were not strictly religious-portraits, landscapes. Rapheal, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Titian, Van Eyck and Dürer were the art heroes of their times. since diversity of knowledge was important, renaissance artists were often also scientists, writers, doctors--and an interest in the scientific aspects of art was visible in their work.\n\n1=van eycks’ “the man in the red turban" early renaissance-portraits start appearing. not sure who the sitter is, could be van eycks.\n2= the crucifixion by Mantegna\n1-2=early renaissance...3-6=renaissance\n3=Da Vinci studying proportions\n5= the creation of adam, Michelangelo\n6=rapheal-the expulsion of heliodorus\n\n\n

  • - wanted to paint life as they saw it.\n- were also intensely interested in nature-painted outside in natural light\n-pic by courbet and daumier\n
  • - last third of 19th century\n- outdoor painters became intensely aware of color and light by painting outside in sunlight in france \n- they wanted to paint their immediate response(or impression of) to this light\n- invention of camera helped isolate and freeze natural scenes\n- Monet, Pissarro, Renoir\n1=in the boat by edouard manet(crucial figure in the transition from realism to impressionism)\n2=claude monet\n
  • - some artist did not like the approach of impressionism and wanted to emphasize form and structure and express emotions in their paintings. \n- preferred to create images that appeared solid and emotional\n- Van Gogh(reflection of his inner turmoil), Gauguin(criticized European society by glorifying more primitive cultures, Toulouse-Lautrec(Partisan life), Seurat, Cézanne\n

  • even though there are all these different types of art movements, many different kinds of paintings are being produced and accepted side by side. this phenomenon is called pluralism. style is a form of expression. through their styles, painters reveal their personal vision. that purpose of art hasn’t changed much over thousands of years.\n
