Anatoly's Art History: Academic Art

  2. 2. I am not at all an art historian, nor do I still practice art much anymore. My simple intrigue of art over the ages is what inspired me to not mimic artists by continuing my own art, but rather write about them instead. Just as art evolves over the ages, so does writing. So join me in exploring the Academic era of art history.  A N A T O L Y ' S B A C K G R O U N D
  3. 3. W H E R E & W H E N Originally in France, but expanding across Europe, Academicism occurred in the early 1800s throughout the late 19th century. 
  4. 4. O R I G I N Academicism was highly influenced through the rules and high standards of the French Academie de Beaux-Arts.  The education of art students sprung undertakings of Renaissance art, developing classical theories.  Although Rococo, Neoclassicism and Romanticism were once considered “rebellious” in their time, they were now the foundational inspiration to Academism.
  5. 5. Academism has a clear social awareness, not limiting their subjects by status but by mindfully choosing to capture the emotion and visuals of the poor and low status. The academic style also brings forth mythic creatures and dramatic scenes with pastoral colors for a uplifting mood.  Art students were guided to communicate some form of a positive message. Some examples are friendship, moral objects and Christian values. I D E N T I F Y I N G A C A D E M I C A R T
  6. 6. C O N S T R I C T I N G R U L E S Although inspired by the once rebellious artistic styles of neoclassicism and romanticism, Academic art did not stray from the rules. Any artists who veered outside the standards were excluded from exhibitions and art halls. In fact, artists in academies were taught to re-create old masterpieces, essentially copying works of art to absorb the correct style, technique and color.
