Comparing Two Sculptors Essay
This essay will compare and contrast the work of two sculptors who use the human form as a basis of their artwork. The first sculpture "Apollo and
Daphne" by Gian Lorenzo Bernini was created in 1622 and portrays a Romanian story. Where as "Two Women" by Ron Mueck is a hyper realistic
sculpture made by an Australian contemporary artist.
Gian Lorenzo Bernini was a traditional sculptor that was born in 1598 and created art pieces such as "Apollo and Daphne" for well–known churches in
Rome. On the other hand, Ron Mueck is a contemporary sculptor from Australia who is known to use hyper–realism when creating magnificent
sculptures of the human form.
The media techniques and processes that each of the sculptors completed required large...show more content...
By using mixed materials such as silicon, fabric and plastic Ron Mueck to created the diminutive and brilliantly realistic sculpture of two elderly
women. Ron Mueck dresses and threads each hair into the heads of the sculpture, which further the uncanny realistic look of his artwork.
The sculptures "Apollo and Daphne" and "Two Women" share elements and principles with one another, such as shape, size and texture. Bernini's
work is a life size piece that complements the figure of the two characters. The facial expressions, hands, feet and hair of "Apollo and Daphne" are in
reasonable detail; however there are no lines on the bodies to create depth and texture. On the other hand, Mueck challenge's the viewer by changing
the scale of his work, with "Two Women" minute and in incredible proportion with the features and figure of the women.
While Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture "Apollo and Daphne" depicts a Romanian story of forbidden love, Ron Mueck's "Two Women" portray two
elderly women hyper–realistically. By analysing the meaning behind the two sculptures, evidence is given that the two artists had different intentions
for their work. The story "Apollo and Daphne" is from a roman poem named "Metamorphoses" by a man named Ovid. In the story, Apollo is hit by a

Art Comparison Paper
In this paper, I will describe, compare, and contrast two paintings of the same name, The Annunciation by Gerard David and Joos van Cleve.
Beginning with Joos van Cleve's work, we see the virgin Mary kneeling down before an opened book. An illuminated dove with its wings spread
is suspended above Mary. An angel is standing beside her, making a gesture. Both figures are inside an ornately decorated, well lit bedroom. Mary
is wearing a large, dark blue robe that rests upon the floor as she kneels. A portion of it is suspended onto the stand from which she reads a book.

Above the bed's pillows is a circular fixture, possibly a mirror. A white, decorated vase is in front of the bed, laying on the ground. Two tall, white
flowers are set within it. Beside the bed is a green, gold trimmed chair with a red cushion. Above the chair is a dove with its wings spread, it is
surrounded by a gold halo. Just above the dove is a depiction of a horned figure with a halo. To the left of the depiction is a gold chandelier that is
styled in a similar manner to the angel's scepter. Behind and to the left of the chandelier is an ornate diptych, only one of the panels are revealed.
Inscriptions are below the diptych. A wood furnishing bearing intricate carvings supports the diptych, a white cloth rests on its surface. Below it is
a metal plate and cup, a cloth resting on it. Beside the furnishing and diptych is an opened window, each of the opened panels attached to it in

Southern California and the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach for my report unfortunately I only liked the works in MoLAA and will talk

Cauduro paints supernatural scenarios with realism akin to 17th century masters like Dutch artists Rembrandt van Rijin (Painting information Cauduro).
The piece I choose to critic is titled "Buscado por su madre" or "Wanted by his Mother" by Rafael Cauduro, no year. This piece is an Oil on Canvas
painting that measured 48"x36" located at the Long Beaches MoLAA. The work is presented as one of a few Mexican artists that share an
interest in their painting primarily figurative style, political in nature, that often narrated the history of Mexico or the indigenous culture. The
painting is one of the first viewers see as they enter the Museum. It is at eye level and demonstrates a superb use of illusionistic realism that it
creates the illusion of being real. The painting is of a old Missing poster of a man on a brick wall. What made it stand out in my eyes was the fact
that it looked to be a three dimensional object on what looked like real bricks with the words wanted by mother on the top. Cauduro's piece, in my
eyes looked like he literally took a chunk out of a wall, and placed an old torn missing poster of a man on the front and put it out for display.
Cauduro uses texture to represent the look of brick by applying thick strokes of paint creating a body of its own as and mimics the look and shape of
brick. He also makes applies the same technique on the wanted poster by implying that it is old and torn by again layering his paint to create the

Professor
November 2012
Throughout history art has served as a preservation and representation of the time in which they were made. During the Ancient Greek period art was
not only mare naturalistic and humanistic but also became directly affected by the events going around. Both the Marble Statue of an Old Woman and
the Marble Statue of Aphrodite are sculptures that were made during the Ancient Greek era, they each tell a story of what was going on during that
point in time.
The Marble Statue of Aphrodite is the eldest of the two sculptures, it was sculpted between the 2nd and 3rd century B .C. During this period Greece
was at its peak, the people of Greece had power and wealth. The art made at this time...show more content...
Another reason why the arms have fallen off is because, unlike the major societies before them, Greeks believed in humanistic art. Societies before the
Greeks, such as the Egyptians, used to keep the material between what would be spaces between arms and body and the legs. This form of art was not
humanistic not realistic enough for the Greeks so most of their artwork follows the ideals of humanism. Artists would break off the extra material that
would remain after the statue was fully sculpted. To further the realistic look of the Aphroditesculpture the artist, who is unknown at this time, detailed
the curves of her body. You can view the lines of her stomach and breasts which are simple and uncomplicated and create an image that looks like a
real woman.
Greeks continued with the ideas of humanism and realism even as their society aged and changed. Like many great societies before them Greeks hit
a climactic point in their era that had people uneasy and artist evolving away from the artistic norms that had been practiced for years; this new era
was known as the Hellenistic Period. The Sculpture of an Old Woman is an example of this radical change in art; still loyal to the idea of humanism
this sculpture is not of a goddess or soldier, as many arts were based on before, it was of a normal average, everyday elder woman who could have
simply been walking down the street. Not only did the artist stray away from the norms of subject matter but they

However, further connection in context and content can be developed when analyzing the connection of the works roots and art in history. Exodus
exhibits the reality of human suffering as a result of war and oppression during the Hungarian Revolution. The historical relevance of this work dives
into a deeper significance than its basic face value. The oppression and struggle for power signified in Exodus also translates into Figure 2. Both
cultures, in their own time have faced their traditions and way of life being threatened. As Hungarian citizens are forced to leave their country, Ojibwa
members were constantly threatened by European immigrants. The human experience is key in understanding and studying art. Besides the main
styles and usage in appearance, the connection to a point in time and the influence of that time allows the audience to connect with the artist and the
characteristics of the artwork. Audiences are able to connect past themes to present day issues, such as the difficulties facing many Syrian refugees and
the numerous Native American women who have gone missing. The importance of home and culture is evident in both works despite their different
purposes and artistic modes. Limits are explored and barriers of past, present are future are removed when audiences are able to interpret the work
from any point in time and understand the significance of its visual and non–visual means.

Roman Art Comparison Essay
If one was to describe the Roman art, in my opinion the words realistic, and functional, would give it judgment; which perhaps would describe rather
well the pragmatic Romans. Undoubtedly, both the painting and sculpture has its own purpose, and a unique place in society; the Renaissance master
Leonardo da Vinci, has rather explicit opinion on the topic: "A sculptor says that his art is more worthy than painting because, fearing humidity, fire,
heat, and cold less than painting, it is more eternal. The response to him is that such a thing does not make the sculptor more dignified because the
permanence is born from the material and not from the artificer. This dignity can also belong to painting by painting with colored glazes on metal or
terracotta..." (Da Vinci, n.a.). According to Leonardo, the sculpture is more eternal; it will last quite long time, the weather and the elements, will not

In tempera the pigments were mixed with an adhesive and laid upon a dry surface. The paintings would be applied either to the internal or external
walls of the buildings, where they would become an internal part of the structure. The Romans seldom placed any furniture against the walls, nor did
they hang any pictures on the walls, so those paintings served as an elaborate decoration, and part of the architectural design. (Durant, 1972). As one
can see, the painting arts were a domain of a skilled "interior decorators", rather than artists in our sense of understanding; which should give one a clue
to the function of art in the Roman society. One should not omit the fact that it was Romans who invented the landscape painting, and a crude form of
a linear perspective; furthermore, to satisfy the huge demand for painting arts, the roman artists produced panel paintings, in encaustic and tempera,
including their own "triumphal" history painting. (Roman art,

Art and Literature, a Comparison
Art and Literature: A Comparison Art and writing are two very different ways of expressing oneself, but there are elements of artistic expression that
remain common in both. Tone, theme, and structure are just a few of these elements. The works of Jasper Johns, "False Start," and, "Painting with
Two Balls," as well as Annie Dillard's, "Heaven and Earth in Jest," are comparable in that all three works of art use the aforementioned elements in
order to reach the audience with a direct point, which seems to be the idea that in order to understand anything in life and nature, you need to look to

Created in 1960, the painting is 65 by 54 inches, almost the exact same size as, "False Start," (Artchive Painting). The paint used in, "Painting with
Two Balls," does not differ much from that of, "False Start." The bright colors are used again, setting the same uplifting tone for this piece as the
other two works. The structure of this piece differs dramatically from, "False Start," but is much like Annie Dillard's, "Heaven in Earth in Jest," in
that it is broken into three visible parts, just as Dillard created intentional paragraph breaks. The structure of the painting seems to literally
demonstrate the theme. The first break with two balls symbolically and literally represents two eyes peering through blinds. This is a literal
representation of the theme in the sense that it is comparable to two eyes looking past what is on the surface for a deeper meaning. The structure
and tone of both works by Jasper Johns demonstrate the simplistic beauty of plain existence. The works analyzed by Annie Dillard and Jasper Johns
utilize structure and tone to clearly present the theme they wish to portray. The bright colors of Johns' paintings are comparable to the imagery used
by Dillard in her anecdotes, and the structures of all three works are somewhat similar, as described above. The idea that you need to look past what's
on the surface in order to fully understand anything is present in all three works, and the simplicity of existence is a message

Essay History of Western Art Comparison 1
A Progression of Idealistic Perfection in Sculpture: Khafre Enthroned to Kritios Boy Early Egyptian art from the Old Kingdom, ca. 2575–2134 BCE,
demonstrates uniform structure. Egyptian artists and sculptors adhered to a system of strict rules known as canon to create this consistency. The
Egyptian canon suggested perfection to be a rigid, ageless idealization of reality. Roughly 1,500 years later, a progressive canon emerged in Greek art
reflecting new ideals of perfection. Greek art beginning in the Early Classical Period, ca. 480– 450 BCE, digressed from the acceptance of formula
(influenced by Egyptian canon) to reflect greater naturalism, an adherence to close observation of reality. Greek perfection was achieved through

The marble sculpture of Kritios Boy from Greece, ca. 480 BCE marks an influential point of stylistic evolution. In contrast to Khafre Enthroned, The
Kritios Boy was created for a public audience. The Kritios Boy's standing pose represents a freedom in his figure that divorces the solidity of the
stiffly seated Khafre. Rather than emanating timelessness, this naturalistic sculpture seems to capture a specific moment in time. Mirroring a normal
human stance of balance and weight shift onto one leg, his stature is contrapposto. Furthermore, the Kritios Boy's physical composition maintains a
smooth contour to his natural musculature. His head is slightly turned with hair that seems to fall effortlessly in place. He is completely naked,
wearing only a relaxed expression on his face. With no indication of identity, the Kritios Boy exemplifies naturalism in Greek drive to order to
analyze form into constituent parts and represent the specific in light of the generic. The figure sculptures of Khafre Enthroned and Kritios Boy
exhibit a start and end point in an evolution of artistic technique. Although a single male figure is the subject of both works, canon clearly develops
from Khafre Enthroned to Kritios Boy. Both works express a desire for perfection with the use of contrasting ideals. Egyptian artists prized
completeness and timeless to achieve a god–like representation. Later, artistic form advances as Greeks sought naturalism and

Art Comparison
Art is an incredible medium when used to its fullest potential. What I mean by that is; it has the capabilities to surround the viewer with its imagery
and play with the emotions. Paintings are particulary effective in doing this through the use of color tones and 'temperature'. For example; El Greco
used a lot of blue and green throughout his body of work. The outcome is that the subject matter comes off as ghostly and perhaps a little alien. This is
in high contrast to Georgia O'Keeffe's desert paintings, which utilise reds, yellows, and browns to create a 'warm' and appealing landscape.
Of course, these are not the only artist to make master works of tonality. Here are five artists (which you may recognize) who have harnesed the power

Both Velazquez's 'Old Woman' and Rembrandt's 'Prodigal Son' are bathed in (or painted in) golden yellow tones. While both are wearing clothes of
differing colors, each pigment is mixed with a little yellow, white, or light brown to give warmth to the figure. This helps them to contrast to the very
dark background. I like how Rembrandt has figures in the background that are almost indiscernable. By being part of the opposing (darker) tonal
group, we as viewers are shown that they are not the most important part of the portrait; that the son and father are. Velazquez, however, chooses to
have all elements of interest in the lighter tones in his painting, leaving the back as a dark void of mystery.
Van Gogh is probably one of the most interesting painters concerning tonality. His purposeful usage of onecolor in a body of work is a strong reference
to emotion (particularly in his portraits). His expressive brush work swirls the blues, and slight yellow and green, around his face. Even his skin has a
bluish hue. These elements describe a somber or sorrowful state of mind. Its as almost if the troubles around him are seeping into his skin (like the blue).
That being said, tonality is both the friend of the artist and the art–lover. It is a wonderful story

For my final project, I will compare two pieces of art and show the comparisons and differences that they have in the Greek ancient period and the
modern period of the same theme "the representation of the Trojan war". The visual work art is a bilingual art because it was made with the
participation of two artists, Andokides (Red figure) and the Lysippides (Black figure) and it is titled "Achilles and Ajax Playing a Dice a Game". It was
painted in 525–520 B.C in Greece and it represents the ancient Greece. The literary artwork I will consider is The Iliad, an epic poem by the ancient
Greek poet Homer in 750 BCE. I will compare both artworks and connect them to the contemporary period debating the similarities and differences
that the poem and the ceramic have and how they influenced our modern world, which help the creation of the film Troy led by Brad Pitt, Eric Bana
and Orlando Bloom in 2004.
The bilingual amphora was painted in Athens, Greece during the ancient Greek period in a black figure and red figure style. This was a typical style
in Athens, Greece at that time and it was mainly to decorate fine pottery. Most of the amphoras were made in sections initially (neck and body) and
were put together afterwards (the foot and handles). This pottery was not for everyday use, but it was affordable for most of the population. This fine
Greek pottery goes back to the Minoan and Mycenaean pottery of the Bronze Age. The black figure technique focused

A Comparison between Artists
Art Comparison During the Renaissance period of history, religious icons were a popular theme. Often churches and other religious organizations
would pay artists to recreate famous scenes from the Bible which could then be hung in private homes are in churches and cathedrals. Many
paintings were done on the very walls of the church, painted into the plaster in a style known as fresco. Religious paintings were also frequently
purchased for the home by wealthy patrons. Each artistic work was used to tell a different story and presented in a way which would reflect the
ideas and opinions of the church and the surrounding community. Two paintings from the period, the MГЁrode Altarpiece by Campin and the Holy
Trinity by Masaccio, are both religious works which have a similar purpose, and can be compared by their specific time period and content, the artist
who created the pieces and their intentions, and the techniques which were used in creating it. The Holy Trinity was painted between 1425 and 1427
(Lane 1999). In the work Mary and Joseph look at Jesus on the cross and are themselves gazed at by two unidentifiable individuals who stand in
positions of prayer. Additionally, a third person inhabits the inner altar where the trio stands. The MГЁrode Altarpiece was painted in the earlier portion
of the fifteenth century, in approximately 1425 to 1428; therefore the two works were created at the same point during the Renaissance (Haber 2010).

Similarities Between Egypt And Greek Art
Over the years of art history, there are many great empires that we think of and two of those were ancient Greek and Egyptian. When talking about
Greek and Egyptian art history, it is the sculptures that come to mind when you are comparing and contrasting artworks. Egyptian art and Greek art
both had mesmerizing sculptures but Egyptian art was more oriented towards religion and Greek art was more focused on philosophy. The Egyptian
statue of the Menkaure and a Queen was similar to the Greek statue of Metropolitan Kouros in their posture but both of these statues also had many
differences. Menkaure and a queen statue was created from an unusual stone and the statue was discovered in Menkaure's valley temple. The sculpture
has a hard texture and because of the time–consuming task of polishing this sculpture was never completely polished. So, the sculpture is greywacke
and has traces of red paint on king's face, ears and neck because male figures were traditionally painted red and there are traces of black in queen's hair.
The sculpture itself is 54 ВЅ inches in height and is displayed in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Metropolitan Kouros was created from marble
which seems like it has a rough and hard texture. The statue is 6 feet in height and is displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

human like figurines either carved or molded by clay. Egypt had similar views their art was many of humans most higher ranking. Later, Greece began
creating work of art that honored an individual's achievements that consisted of a life–sized, freestanding either nude male or clothed woman. Most of
their art involved classical art which meant it restrained emotion (256–257). Then along came the Romans which their art was tied into architecture and

is all about the birches. The reason why one could say so is because of all the visual elements such as: the birches are in the middle of the painting;
they are also the most lighted objects in the painting (light is shining in the form of an oval) (National Gallery). Due to the levels of lightning one
can see that the picture is divided into three horizontal parts: the top (dark, but not as dark as the bottom of the painting); the middle is the
lightest; and the bottom is the darkest. This means that he used what he learned about the Dutch style and mixed it with his personal style thus we

He was born in London on April 23, 1775. Turner was interested in painting water subjects as well as landscapes ("Biography for"). He was
educated at the Royal Academy of Arts where he developed his way of expressing natural light on the paintings, thus his style is seen as
impressionistic. It is said that his father has been selling Turner's paintings at his own shop from1 to 3 shillings which may have influenced his

concepts, and formal elements. Both of these images have subject matter that is the same even though they're different.
The subjects for the Battle of Centaurs and Wild Beasts from Hadrian's Villa are animals; centaurs (male and...show more content...
Also, the shapes in the background are fuzzier and assumed in piece one where the shapes in piece two are sharper and more defined. Another formal
element is texture. The first piece, according to the text, is a floor mosaic which is composed of many colored tesserae that were laid down in
irregular, curving lines, which effectively imitated painted brushstrokes. The individual tiles are more apparent when viewed closely. This gives the
piece a grainy and earthy texture, where it physically looks bumpy. The textbook says it has foreshortening, the illusion created on a flat surface in
which figures and objects appear to recede or project sharply into space. The second piece was drawn with tempera on parchment. This makes the
piece look smooth, flat, and two dimensional. The next element is color. The hues in both pieces are relatively earth toned. Both pieces have a low
level of saturation. In piece one, the sky is mustard brown with a section of mint green that frames the boulder that the male centaur is holding. The
rocky scenery has browns and creams with a dull green and brown center. A bright green patch of pine trees is in the corner that contrasts with the
sky and rocks. The colors to the second piece are similar in the sense that it has low saturation. The colors are dull and warm. This piece utilizes reds
and oranges, in the serpent, that the first piece does not. Because of the tan

Comparing Two Sculptors Essay

  • 1. Comparing Two Sculptors Essay This essay will compare and contrast the work of two sculptors who use the human form as a basis of their artwork. The first sculpture "Apollo and Daphne" by Gian Lorenzo Bernini was created in 1622 and portrays a Romanian story. Where as "Two Women" by Ron Mueck is a hyper realistic sculpture made by an Australian contemporary artist. Gian Lorenzo Bernini was a traditional sculptor that was born in 1598 and created art pieces such as "Apollo and Daphne" for well–known churches in Rome. On the other hand, Ron Mueck is a contemporary sculptor from Australia who is known to use hyper–realism when creating magnificent sculptures of the human form. The media techniques and processes that each of the sculptors completed required large...show more content... By using mixed materials such as silicon, fabric and plastic Ron Mueck to created the diminutive and brilliantly realistic sculpture of two elderly women. Ron Mueck dresses and threads each hair into the heads of the sculpture, which further the uncanny realistic look of his artwork. The sculptures "Apollo and Daphne" and "Two Women" share elements and principles with one another, such as shape, size and texture. Bernini's work is a life size piece that complements the figure of the two characters. The facial expressions, hands, feet and hair of "Apollo and Daphne" are in reasonable detail; however there are no lines on the bodies to create depth and texture. On the other hand, Mueck challenge's the viewer by changing the scale of his work, with "Two Women" minute and in incredible proportion with the features and figure of the women. While Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture "Apollo and Daphne" depicts a Romanian story of forbidden love, Ron Mueck's "Two Women" portray two elderly women hyper–realistically. By analysing the meaning behind the two sculptures, evidence is given that the two artists had different intentions for their work. The story "Apollo and Daphne" is from a roman poem named "Metamorphoses" by a man named Ovid. In the story, Apollo is hit by a magical arrow from a god of Get more content on HelpWriting.net

A white, decorated vase is in front of the bed, laying on the ground. Two tall, white flowers are set within it. Beside the bed is a green, gold trimmed chair with a red cushion. Above the chair is a dove with its wings spread, it is surrounded by a gold halo. Just above the dove is a depiction of a horned figure with a halo. To the left of the depiction is a gold chandelier that is styled in a similar manner to the angel's scepter. Behind and to the left of the chandelier is an ornate diptych, only one of the panels are revealed. Inscriptions are below the diptych. A wood furnishing bearing intricate carvings supports the diptych, a white cloth rests on its surface. Below it is a metal plate and cup, a cloth resting on it. Beside the furnishing and diptych is an opened window, each of the opened panels attached to it in varying positions. A city is outside the window.

The piece I choose to critic is titled "Buscado por su madre" or "Wanted by his Mother" by Rafael Cauduro, no year. This piece is an Oil on Canvas painting that measured 48"x36" located at the Long Beaches MoLAA. The work is presented as one of a few Mexican artists that share an interest in their painting primarily figurative style, political in nature, that often narrated the history of Mexico or the indigenous culture. The painting is one of the first viewers see as they enter the Museum. It is at eye level and demonstrates a superb use of illusionistic realism that it creates the illusion of being real. The painting is of a old Missing poster of a man on a brick wall. What made it stand out in my eyes was the fact that it looked to be a three dimensional object on what looked like real bricks with the words wanted by mother on the top. Cauduro's piece, in my eyes looked like he literally took a chunk out of a wall, and placed an old torn missing poster of a man on the front and put it out for display. Cauduro uses texture to represent the look of brick by applying thick strokes of paint creating a body of its own as and mimics the look and shape of brick. He also makes applies the same technique on the wanted poster by implying that it is old and torn by again layering his paint to create the Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 4. Essay on Comparative Analysis of Art Art History Professor November 2012 Throughout history art has served as a preservation and representation of the time in which they were made. During the Ancient Greek period art was not only mare naturalistic and humanistic but also became directly affected by the events going around. Both the Marble Statue of an Old Woman and the Marble Statue of Aphrodite are sculptures that were made during the Ancient Greek era, they each tell a story of what was going on during that point in time. The Marble Statue of Aphrodite is the eldest of the two sculptures, it was sculpted between the 2nd and 3rd century B .C. During this period Greece was at its peak, the people of Greece had power and wealth. The art made at this time...show more content... Another reason why the arms have fallen off is because, unlike the major societies before them, Greeks believed in humanistic art. Societies before the Greeks, such as the Egyptians, used to keep the material between what would be spaces between arms and body and the legs. This form of art was not humanistic not realistic enough for the Greeks so most of their artwork follows the ideals of humanism. Artists would break off the extra material that would remain after the statue was fully sculpted. To further the realistic look of the Aphroditesculpture the artist, who is unknown at this time, detailed the curves of her body. You can view the lines of her stomach and breasts which are simple and uncomplicated and create an image that looks like a real woman. Greeks continued with the ideas of humanism and realism even as their society aged and changed. Like many great societies before them Greeks hit a climactic point in their era that had people uneasy and artist evolving away from the artistic norms that had been practiced for years; this new era was known as the Hellenistic Period. The Sculpture of an Old Woman is an example of this radical change in art; still loyal to the idea of humanism this sculpture is not of a goddess or soldier, as many arts were based on before, it was of a normal average, everyday elder woman who could have simply been walking down the street.

Audiences are able to infer the content and context of the artwork. Art displayed through different mediums and about different topics can share many similarities and draw connections between one another. Exodus, created by Shelby Lechman (2015), uses oil paint on canvas to depict a young boy and father in a train car, leaving their home in Hungary during the time of the Hungarian Revolution (fig.1).

However, further connection in context and content can be developed when analyzing the connection of the works roots and art in history. Exodus exhibits the reality of human suffering as a result of war and oppression during the Hungarian Revolution. The historical relevance of this work dives into a deeper significance than its basic face value. The oppression and struggle for power signified in Exodus also translates into Figure 2. Both cultures, in their own time have faced their traditions and way of life being threatened. As Hungarian citizens are forced to leave their country, Ojibwa members were constantly threatened by European immigrants. The human experience is key in understanding and studying art. Besides the main styles and usage in appearance, the connection to a point in time and the influence of that time allows the audience to connect with the artist and the characteristics of the artwork. Audiences are able to connect past themes to present day issues, such as the difficulties facing many Syrian refugees and the numerous Native American women who have gone missing. The importance of home and culture is evident in both works despite their different purposes and artistic modes. Limits are explored and barriers of past, present are future are removed when audiences are able to interpret the work from any point in time and understand the significance of its visual and non–visual means.

  • 6. Roman Art Comparison Essay If one was to describe the Roman art, in my opinion the words realistic, and functional, would give it judgment; which perhaps would describe rather well the pragmatic Romans. Undoubtedly, both the painting and sculpture has its own purpose, and a unique place in society; the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci, has rather explicit opinion on the topic: "A sculptor says that his art is more worthy than painting because, fearing humidity, fire, heat, and cold less than painting, it is more eternal. The response to him is that such a thing does not make the sculptor more dignified because the permanence is born from the material and not from the artificer. This dignity can also belong to painting by painting with colored glazes on metal or terracotta..." (Da Vinci, n.a.).

In tempera the pigments were mixed with an adhesive and laid upon a dry surface. The paintings would be applied either to the internal or external walls of the buildings, where they would become an internal part of the structure. The Romans seldom placed any furniture against the walls, nor did they hang any pictures on the walls, so those paintings served as an elaborate decoration, and part of the architectural design. (Durant, 1972). As one can see, the painting arts were a domain of a skilled "interior decorators", rather than artists in our sense of understanding; which should give one a clue to the function of art in the Roman society. One should not omit the fact that it was Romans who invented the landscape painting, and a crude form of a linear perspective; furthermore, to satisfy the huge demand for painting arts, the roman artists produced panel paintings, in encaustic and tempera, including their own "triumphal" history painting.

Tone, theme, and structure are just a few of these elements. The works of Jasper Johns, "False Start," and, "Painting with Two Balls," as well as Annie Dillard's, "Heaven and Earth in Jest," are comparable in that all three works of art use the aforementioned elements in order to reach the audience with a direct point, which seems to be the idea that in order to understand anything in life and nature, you need to look to actually see the true meaning and purpose behind it.

Created in 1960, the painting is 65 by 54 inches, almost the exact same size as, "False Start," (Artchive Painting). The paint used in, "Painting with Two Balls," does not differ much from that of, "False Start." The bright colors are used again, setting the same uplifting tone for this piece as the other two works. The structure of this piece differs dramatically from, "False Start," but is much like Annie Dillard's, "Heaven in Earth in Jest," in that it is broken into three visible parts, just as Dillard created intentional paragraph breaks. The structure of the painting seems to literally demonstrate the theme. The first break with two balls symbolically and literally represents two eyes peering through blinds. This is a literal representation of the theme in the sense that it is comparable to two eyes looking past what is on the surface for a deeper meaning. The structure and tone of both works by Jasper Johns demonstrate the simplistic beauty of plain existence. The works analyzed by Annie Dillard and Jasper Johns utilize structure and tone to clearly present the theme they wish to portray. The bright colors of Johns' paintings are comparable to the imagery used by Dillard in her anecdotes, and the structures of all three works are somewhat similar, as described above. The idea that you need to look past what's on the surface in order to fully understand anything is present in all three works, and the simplicity of existence is a message Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 9. Essay History of Western Art Comparison 1 A Progression of Idealistic Perfection in Sculpture: Khafre Enthroned to Kritios Boy Early Egyptian art from the Old Kingdom, ca. 2575–2134 BCE, demonstrates uniform structure. Egyptian artists and sculptors adhered to a system of strict rules known as canon to create this consistency. The Egyptian canon suggested perfection to be a rigid, ageless idealization of reality. Roughly 1,500 years later, a progressive canon emerged in Greek art reflecting new ideals of perfection. Greek art beginning in the Early Classical Period, ca. 480– 450 BCE, digressed from the acceptance of formula (influenced by Egyptian canon) to reflect greater naturalism, an adherence to close observation of reality. Greek perfection was achieved through rational...show more content... The marble sculpture of Kritios Boy from Greece, ca. 480 BCE marks an influential point of stylistic evolution. In contrast to Khafre Enthroned, The Kritios Boy was created for a public audience. The Kritios Boy's standing pose represents a freedom in his figure that divorces the solidity of the stiffly seated Khafre. Rather than emanating timelessness, this naturalistic sculpture seems to capture a specific moment in time. Mirroring a normal human stance of balance and weight shift onto one leg, his stature is contrapposto. Furthermore, the Kritios Boy's physical composition maintains a smooth contour to his natural musculature. His head is slightly turned with hair that seems to fall effortlessly in place. He is completely naked, wearing only a relaxed expression on his face. With no indication of identity, the Kritios Boy exemplifies naturalism in Greek drive to order to analyze form into constituent parts and represent the specific in light of the generic. The figure sculptures of Khafre Enthroned and Kritios Boy exhibit a start and end point in an evolution of artistic technique. Although a single male figure is the subject of both works, canon clearly develops from Khafre Enthroned to Kritios Boy. Both works express a desire for perfection with the use of contrasting ideals. Egyptian artists prized completeness and timeless to achieve a god–like representation. Later, artistic form advances as Greeks sought naturalism and Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 10. Art Comparison Art is an incredible medium when used to its fullest potential. What I mean by that is; it has the capabilities to surround the viewer with its imagery and play with the emotions. Paintings are particulary effective in doing this through the use of color tones and 'temperature'. For example; El Greco used a lot of blue and green throughout his body of work. The outcome is that the subject matter comes off as ghostly and perhaps a little alien. This is in high contrast to Georgia O'Keeffe's desert paintings, which utilise reds, yellows, and browns to create a 'warm' and appealing landscape. Of course, these are not the only artist to make master works of tonality. Here are five artists (which you may recognize) who have harnesed the power ...show more content... Both Velazquez's 'Old Woman' and Rembrandt's 'Prodigal Son' are bathed in (or painted in) golden yellow tones. While both are wearing clothes of differing colors, each pigment is mixed with a little yellow, white, or light brown to give warmth to the figure. This helps them to contrast to the very dark background. I like how Rembrandt has figures in the background that are almost indiscernable. By being part of the opposing (darker) tonal group, we as viewers are shown that they are not the most important part of the portrait; that the son and father are. Velazquez, however, chooses to have all elements of interest in the lighter tones in his painting, leaving the back as a dark void of mystery. Van Gogh is probably one of the most interesting painters concerning tonality. His purposeful usage of onecolor in a body of work is a strong reference to emotion (particularly in his portraits). His expressive brush work swirls the blues, and slight yellow and green, around his face. Even his skin has a bluish hue. These elements describe a somber or sorrowful state of mind. Its as almost if the troubles around him are seeping into his skin (like the blue). That being said, tonality is both the friend of the artist and the art–lover. It is a wonderful story Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 11. Comparing Two Works Of Art Essay Comparing two works of art For my final project, I will compare two pieces of art and show the comparisons and differences that they have in the Greek ancient period and the modern period of the same theme "the representation of the Trojan war". The visual work art is a bilingual art because it was made with the participation of two artists, Andokides (Red figure) and the Lysippides (Black figure) and it is titled "Achilles and Ajax Playing a Dice a Game". It was painted in 525–520 B.C in Greece and it represents the ancient Greece. The literary artwork I will consider is The Iliad, an epic poem by the ancient Greek poet Homer in 750 BCE. I will compare both artworks and connect them to the contemporary period debating the similarities and differences that the poem and the ceramic have and how they influenced our modern world, which help the creation of the film Troy led by Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom in 2004. The bilingual amphora was painted in Athens, Greece during the ancient Greek period in a black figure and red figure style. This was a typical style in Athens, Greece at that time and it was mainly to decorate fine pottery. Most of the amphoras were made in sections initially (neck and body) and were put together afterwards (the foot and handles).

  • 12. A Comparison between Artists Art Comparison During the Renaissance period of history, religious icons were a popular theme. Often churches and other religious organizations would pay artists to recreate famous scenes from the Bible which could then be hung in private homes are in churches and cathedrals. Many paintings were done on the very walls of the church, painted into the plaster in a style known as fresco. Religious paintings were also frequently purchased for the home by wealthy patrons. Each artistic work was used to tell a different story and presented in a way which would reflect the ideas and opinions of the church and the surrounding community. Two paintings from the period, the MГЁrode Altarpiece by Campin and the Holy Trinity by Masaccio, are both religious works which have a similar purpose, and can be compared by their specific time period and content, the artist who created the pieces and their intentions, and the techniques which were used in creating it. The Holy Trinity was painted between 1425 and 1427 (Lane 1999). In the work Mary and Joseph look at Jesus on the cross and are themselves gazed at by two unidentifiable individuals who stand in positions of prayer. Additionally, a third person inhabits the inner altar where the trio stands. The MГЁrode Altarpiece was painted in the earlier portion of the fifteenth century, in approximately 1425 to 1428; therefore the two works were created at the same point during the Renaissance (Haber 2010).

The dilemma comes in when taking two different artist with different styles from different time periods and comparing and contrasting them. The ability to contrast would be facile, but the truth hides behind the ability to compare such divergent artwork. Artwork that one may look at first glance and find more dissimilar, then finding the juxtaposition of the two pieces of artwork. Even though Poussin and Toulouse–Lautrec's pieces of artwork can be considered different at first sight, looking more in–depth into both pieces one will be able to find several contrasts and comparisons. The different styles and time periods can not take away from the parallel that both pieces posess. These artists have a dissimilar style and outlook on women partly due to the difference in era's.

One can find that the post–impressionist style is a intergration of the "impressionists' interest in contemporary subject matter and Toulouse–Lautrec's expressionistic colors and lines" (2013, Artic.edu). Toulouse–Lautrec wanted to make the atmosphere in the nightclub eerie to show the unsavory and unwholesome ambience of the nightclub. The different lines, silhouettes and outlines of some characters come together to allow the onlooker to visualize the drama and mood of the night club as if he or she was actually there making it for a more lively Get more content on HelpWriting.net

He had a problematic relationship with his father. His father introduced him to a friend of his who he instructed to take him under his wind and make a man of him. Unbeknownst to his father the friend likes young handsome gay men. The friend took him to Berlin and introduced him to cabaret amongst everything "else". He had a difficult life and worked as an interior designer and did have had some influence on the Australian artist Roy de'Maistre. While waiting to start his art career He felt he could not yet start because he didn't have direction or a topic that would keep him interested. He lived in France for awhile where he saw a lot of great artworks. When he started this artwork (study of Innocent the X) he had to go to Rome to view VelГЎzquez portrait of Pope Innocent the X. When questioned about his paintings he said it wasn't because he had anything against the pope and then he went on to suggest some lie. The real reason was the idea of power and anger that makes people do terrible things and distorts them. In the original painting the pope is screaming but in the nightmarish portrait by Francis he is screaming and angry with rage and power. His presence is demanded with colours and paint stokes that seem to reverberate from his feet. Get more content on HelpWriting.net

  • 16. Similarities Between Egypt And Greek Art Over the years of art history, there are many great empires that we think of and two of those were ancient Greek and Egyptian. When talking about Greek and Egyptian art history, it is the sculptures that come to mind when you are comparing and contrasting artworks. Egyptian art and Greek art both had mesmerizing sculptures but Egyptian art was more oriented towards religion and Greek art was more focused on philosophy. The Egyptian statue of the Menkaure and a Queen was similar to the Greek statue of Metropolitan Kouros in their posture but both of these statues also had many differences. Menkaure and a queen statue was created from an unusual stone and the statue was discovered in Menkaure's valley temple. The sculpture has a hard texture and because of the time–consuming task of polishing this sculpture was never completely polished. So, the sculpture is greywacke and has traces of red paint on king's face, ears and neck because male figures were traditionally painted red and there are traces of black in queen's hair. The sculpture itself is 54 ВЅ inches in height and is displayed in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Metropolitan Kouros was created from marble which seems like it has a rough and hard texture.

Art was used in many cultures in different time periods as the years, centuries pasted art became more advances and more complex. People used what they could find to make something out of it. I learned that the earliest form of art began in Africa approximately two million years ago. It was interesting to find out that the work of art was an engraved ochre that had lines as if it was crossed hatches (Page 241). I also found out that other pieces of art were discovered from cave paintings to human like figurines either carved or molded by clay. Egypt had similar views their art was many of humans most higher ranking. Later, Greece began creating work of art that honored an individual's achievements that consisted of a life–sized, freestanding either nude male or clothed woman. Most of their art involved classical art which meant it restrained emotion (256–257). Then along came the Romans which their art was tied into architecture and the engineering.

This is similar to the artists of the nineteenth century including Pierre Etienne Theodore Rousseau and Joseph Mallord William Turner. They are both artists during the nineteenth century and were painted at the same time; however, there is a difference between their styles, their point of view, and the scenery. However there are similarities between the two paintings. The paintings that will be compared and contrasted are "Under the Birches, Evening" and "The Campo Santo, Venice." The first painting, "Under the Birches, Evening", is done by Pierre Etienne Theodore Rousseau. He ...show more content... "Under"). One could mistake that the focal point is the little figure under the birch tree who is a priest. However, the main point in this landscape is all about the birches. The reason why one could say so is because of all the visual elements such as: the birches are in the middle of the painting; they are also the most lighted objects in the painting (light is shining in the form of an oval) (National Gallery). Due to the levels of lightning one can see that the picture is divided into three horizontal parts: the top (dark, but not as dark as the bottom of the painting); the middle is the lightest; and the bottom is the darkest. This means that he used what he learned about the Dutch style and mixed it with his personal style thus we have a whole new way of seeing his point of view. The second painting, "The Campo Santo, Venice", was done by Joseph Mallord William Turner. He was born in London on April 23, 1775. Turner was interested in painting water subjects as well as landscapes ("Biography for"). He was educated at the Royal Academy of Arts where he developed his way of expressing natural light on the paintings, thus his style is seen as impressionistic. It is said that his father has been selling Turner's paintings at his own shop from1 to 3 shillings which may have influenced his decision to have the boy educated as a painter.

Also, the shapes in the background are fuzzier and assumed in piece one where the shapes in piece two are sharper and more defined. Another formal element is texture. The first piece, according to the text, is a floor mosaic which is composed of many colored tesserae that were laid down in irregular, curving lines, which effectively imitated painted brushstrokes. The individual tiles are more apparent when viewed closely. This gives the piece a grainy and earthy texture, where it physically looks bumpy. The textbook says it has foreshortening, the illusion created on a flat surface in which figures and objects appear to recede or project sharply into space. The second piece was drawn with tempera on parchment. This makes the piece look smooth, flat, and two dimensional. The next element is color. The hues in both pieces are relatively earth toned. Both pieces have a low level of saturation. In piece one, the sky is mustard brown with a section of mint green that frames the boulder that the male centaur is holding. The rocky scenery has browns and creams with a dull green and brown center. A bright green patch of pine trees is in the corner that contrasts with the sky and rocks. The colors to the second piece are similar in the sense that it has low saturation. The colors are dull and warm. This piece utilizes reds and oranges, in the serpent, that the first piece does not.
