Final Project

Throughout this course I have seen many beautiful paintings, sculptures, and architecture. Specifically, works of art that display leaders in power and Emperors after their victories in battle. Works of art that display their great wealth and power that they have conquered but not images of the battles themselves. I would like to see the art of the Emperors campaigns and the battles that took place.

“DEPICTIONS OF WAR”

Eugène Delacroix 1831

The Battle of Nancy and the Death of Charles the Bold

The Battle of Nancy and the Death of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, January 5, 1477, Eugène Delacroix (French, Charenton-Saint-Maurice 1798–1863 Paris), Oil on canvas

This painting’s main subject was discussed with several city Administrators and members of the Royal Society of Science. Until agreeing on the min focal point, death of Charles, The bold, Duke of Burgundy. Who was killed by the Knight of Lorraine, Claude de Bauzemont on January 5 1477. This was Delacroix first official commission and took him roughly 3 years to complete. “What is striking about this canvas is the exalted enthusiasm with which the artist detail the murderous tumult of the battle.” www.eugene-delacroix.com/

Delacroix used a warm and inviting red that had be complement well with the blue snowy background. Overall, the canvas brought together displaying the large scale of war in a small canvas.

Combat of the Giaour and Pasha

Combat of the Giaour and Hassan, Eugène Delacroix (French, Charenton-Saint-Maurice 1798–1863 Paris), Oil on canvas

Eugène Delacroix 1830

Based on the story’s of Lord Byron about a slave, Lelia who was killed by her master, Hasen. And Giaour her lover on a mission for revenge.

Delacroix’s “Combat of Giaour and Pasha is a powerful constantly moving image clashing two soldier rising their horse at each other/ Delacroix plays with the shadow and light between the left and right side split the image down the middle and unveiling and underlying battle between light and dark.

The Battle of Poitier

The Battle of Poitiers, Eugène Delacroix (French, Charenton-Saint-Maurice 1798–1863 Paris), Oil on canvas

Eugène Delacroix 1826

Commissioned by the Duchess of Berry, displaying a battle fought between Edward, Prince of Wales and John II of France. Delacroix captures the tipping point of this battle and the last moments of the kings freedom before he is taken prisoner. Using dark tones Delacroix painting vibrates of the grim view of war.

Combat of the Giaour and HassanCombat of the Giaour and Hassan, Eugène Delacroix (French, Charenton-Saint-Maurice 1798–1863 Paris), Oil on canvas

Eugène Delacroix 1831

For a Scene displaying so much violence Delacroix’s brush work and choice of wide range of red, blue, and yellows, create a vibrant yet powerful duel on horses.

Boissy d’Anglas at the Convention

Boissy d'Anglas at the Convention, sketch, Eugène Delacroix (French, Charenton-Saint-Maurice 1798–1863 Paris), Oil on canvas

Delacroix paints a dark image of the storming of the Convention and decapitation of the head of deputy Feraud. Delacroix  dark images is matched with dark colors and bright red counter to really exaggerate the bloody scene.

The 18 greatest War and Battle painting, helped me compare the works of war from Delcroix to other artist from other periods. The one artwork that stood out the most for me would be Albercht Altdorfer, The Battle of he Alexander at Issus 1529. The paining has the most beautiful depiction of heaven or peace and calm emitted from the blue but on the other hand at the bottom chaos and a clash of waves of soldier and red blood is steered all the way to the horizon.

This article further helped me understand the different focuses the artist have when is comes to painting war. Peter Paul Rubens “Consequences of War” doesn’t display actual acts of war but rather , the God of war Mars marching thru the temple of Janus while Venus attempts to hold him back.

Banking Model

Banking Model of Education illustrates a typical classroom scenario describing students as empty units that are filled with knowledge distributed by the teacher. This seems to me like every class I have taken before college. Most teachers just follow their course without student impact. I personally believe that the Banking Model should be used on certain subjects such as math. With such a straight forward subject, here is the equations and this is the solution. Any input from the student wouldn’t benefit the course. On the other hand, for subjective courses like philosophy or sociology which revolve around the student feedback the Banking Model just wont make the cut.

What is art to you

For me art is a reflections of ones feeling conveying an important historical moment for that person. All throughout history you can see leaders, kings, and other political figures have been glorified after victories. Using marble, bronze, paintings, and architecture these leaders were recreated displaying honor, leadership, wisdom, and strictness.
But in our current times I believe art shifted from displaying people in position of power and to self expression. Everyday people expression themselves through music, drawing, and painting for just the simple reason of self expression. I personally turn to music everyday to make my day better and smoother. I want to be able to take knowledge of important figures and the arts created to represent them pre Renaissance period.

UNIT 2 SUMMARY

Ilya Panov

Unit Summary 2

 

Unit 2 introduced us to Egyptian , Greek and Roman art. Unlike the naturalistic art of the greeks or the romans, Egyptian art contained a functionality. Functionality that provided benefits to a leader.  As well as Egyptian statuary were used for ritual action and royal or elite statuaries served as a middle man between people and gods.

As well,a lot of Egyptian art contained what’s called a hierarchy of scale. Setting apart the Egyptian rulers and deities by making them much larger than a everyday Egyptian.

The Greeks were able to achieve a super naturalistic look in there art. They took the Kouros boy and added a more natural contrapposto stance. Clearly showing a displacement of weight between the legs , as if the statue is capable of movement as seen in the Polykleitos, Doryphoros (Spear-Bearer) or The Canon. The Greeks were also able to capture emotion  and motion in there art. As seen in ‘Great Altar of Zeus from Pergamon” expressions can can clearly be seen on the marble statue faces. Agony and confusion is portrayed on the faces and in the movement of the arms and body.

Roman was born out of civil war and naturally of there art depicts victories of major battles in service to the state. Victories such as Monument of Aemilius Paullus at Delphi).

Romans patrons also choose to be depicted in the marble stone with every flaw hyper announced, in hopes that this will portray them hard working citizen who acquired much wisdom through their lifetime. Flaws such as bald heads, large noses and, wrinkles were exaggerated as can be seen on  the Marble bust of a man,

Brooklyn Museum Assignment

Art History 1010

Ilya Panov

PART 1

Brooklyn museum exhibit “Soul of a Nation” was a collection of black artists works from the 1960s to 1980s. Allowing the viewer to see the violence, riots, and hate crimes that black Americans experienced during those times. To me, the “The Soul of a Nation” had two artists that were very contradictory.

On one hand, artist Faith Ringgold had a belief that “artists have the job of documenting their times”.  Living her quote, she had created several political posters for groups that advocated “black power”, during the 1960s. One of her most widely spread political posters was the, “United states of Attica”, which has shortly published after a riot had broken out at a prison in upstate. Attica prison cost 40 people their lives. “United states of Attica”, political posters is a map of the United States divided diagonally, into four sections using green and red colors. This style and color relates to the Marcus Garvey’s “Black Nationalist Black Flag”. Alongside, Ringgold added dates of violence, murders, and racial injustice through all of america. Ringgold was able to paint all of the suffer and the racial injustice in the past 200 years.

Contradictory, the work or Roy DeCarava is lot less of “get in your face”and rather a smooth and approachable black and white tones what display casual everyday life. DeCarava, wanted to take away from the main subject and take photo of people at  their back or side and display abstract images. In “couples walking”, DeCarava choose to take the photo of the couple from the back took away from the views to choice in subject but rather forced to see the couples romance. “When you see me comin’ raise your window high”is a zoom out view of a typical Brooklyn apartment building, this generalized illustration shows casual everyday community and resilience.

PART 2

Brooklyn museum also offered and amazing experience that brought you back to the Egyptian civilization. Ancient Egyptian art contained a lot of symbolize such as, the lotus flower symbolizing rebirth from the sandstone “Fragment of Inscribed Door Lintel”. This inscription depicts the wife and husband reeving drink and lotus offering from a priest. Other works depicting a gift of land in “Donation Stela”. The main subject is placed in the center of the limestone block and is surrounded by other figures that are facing him. These figures are handing and item up towards the main figure, depicting a gift a land. Ancient Egyptian art had a symbolization and storytelling.

Unit 1 Summary

 

ART 1010

Ilya Panov

 

Unit 1 showed me that art is in everyday life and not just limited to a beautiful renaissance paintings. Art is an expression of an idea or a belief which can be expressed as sculptures, clothing, music, current events,textiles, and so much more. Unit 1 also introduced us to formal analysis. Understanding color, the lines the artist uses, size/scale, medium/material all play a factor in the artist creation.  In the Venus or Urbino 1538, the artist Titian use darker color around the main figure in the front drawing your eyes to the model. As well, Titian use lots of horizontal lines to once again draw the viewers eyes to the main focus of the image.

Unit 1 introduced us to ancient art and how to interpret it. Previously taking intro to Renaissance art, I did not think anything was created that was worthy but unit 1 has expanded my horizon of art dating back to the paleolithic age. Discovering Venus of Willendorf, the fertility figure, allowed me to see that art goes back to the old stone age but still there traditions of the fertility figures are introduced into the Neolithic era. As well, I learned that this figures were relatively small, since humans were most nomads and constantly moved this limited to how much they can carry.

Also, The Standard of Ur is another example of tradition of hierarchy dating back to 2600 BC. The Standard of Ur is a direct reflection of their current hierarchy. Broken down into three section, one can clearly see the King and nobles at the top section, the middle class in the second section, and at the bottom consists of the lower class.  The Standard of Ur also taught me that everything the artist puts into the image has a meaning. The size of the king is increased by a substantial amount on the top class comparing him to the other nobles or any other figure. Likewise, on the bottom section you can clearly come to the conclusion that this are lower class people since they are carrying supplies with the donkeys.

Unit 1 has changed my perception of art. Giving me the ability to understand art on a deeper level. Unit 1 allowed me to understand the reason for which an artist may have developed a smaller statue or why an artist may have used a certain material even though they may not be reliably available in the area. Why an artist decided to draw some figures large then others or why the artist added animals. Unit 1 ultimately helped me better understand the art and why the artist created a certain way.
