Akkad Art

Head of Akkadian Ruler, 2250 – 2200 B.C.E (iragi Museum, Bagdad – Looted!) This piece of Akkadina art is one with fine sharp lines curls lips and is made to resemble the akkadian ruler from this timeline. I do believe that thid piece was shaped from either a modled or was carved from lime stone but when you look at it, you can see that the lips are pouted and the brow is angery looking the hair is curled. The color is a balckish gray color and the left eye is destroied but it is a good piece of art. The other thing about this piece is that it is life like and it is of the akkadian king. There should be more on this piece that I cannot discribe as I am not sure what it is but this piece scares me just a bit I think of this as eveil but from what I can make of it he was a ruler that did not treat his people kind at all. This piece is 3 demensional and is a full scale of the akkadian ruler. I other findings I do believe that he had two sons not sure what their names are but the race of akkad is an assissin race which they killed for porfit. The stiries are anyway, but with more research I should know more about the akkadians as there are now no more I think unless there are modern akkadians.

Stela of Ur-Nammu, c. 2112-2094 B.C.E., limestone, 3 x 1.5 m (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology)

Even though this is not a head piece but it is comparable to the Akkadian head piece because it was found in the city where the Akkadian ruler was found this piece here is the stela of Ur-Nammu which it is a wall carving made from lime stone and is a five layer story of the moon god which is at the top and the people on the second layer are his servants on the third layer looks like two lonely people looking for the others and a latter leading down to hades as it were.

...Ancient Art By Tiffany Roy HUMA 205 AIU Online Abstract This is a comparative essay that will take two pieces of ancient artworks and explore their meaning and culture. It will explore subject matters, form and content of the pieces as well as compare them to one another. The artworks chosen for this essay are: The Nike of Samothrace (Greek) and a funerary sculpture (African) made by the Bara or Sakalava people of Madagascar, Africa. When it comes to ancient art, there are many different cultures that can be compared and interpreted with one another. The subjects of this essay come from ancient Greek art and ancient African art. Greek art mostly depicted humanism, gods, power, harmony, order, adoration, etc. It served as a symbolization of political, religious, and/or ethical purposes. Greek art upheld spiritual views as well as unity and the dedication to great rulers. In a sense, Greek and African art are similar in many way with only a few differences. African art depicted deep spiritual and religious views. It also expresses the true respect for the human figure (humanism) as Greek art does. Sculptures of warriors and powerful people were often made to hold their spirits in a way of making them live on forever. African art expressed harmony and balance as well as vigor in detail and orientation. The first artwork to be explored will be the Nike “Victory of Samothrace”. (The Meaning of Greek Art, 2012). (Evans, 2010). This is a three-dimensional sculpture......

...(1881-1973) 'Factory, Horta de Ebbo', 1909 (oil on canvas) Cubism was a truly revolutionary style of modern art developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques. It was the first style of abstract art which evolved at the beginning of the 20th century in response to a world that was changing with unprecedented speed. Cubism was an attempt by artists to revitalise the tired traditions of Western art which they believed had run their course. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of representation, such as perspective, which had been the rule since the Renaissance. Their aim was to develop a new way of seeing which reflected the modern age. POP ART Andy Warhol – Mickey maus the early morning of July 18 in Stockholm, a major theft occurred. Unknown broke the door to the museum Aberga (Abergs Museum), stormed inside and stripped from the walls of famous works of masters of the pop art of Andy Warhol (Andy Warhol) and Roy Lichtenstein (Roy Lichtenstein). Robbers also took a poster to the old film The New Spirit, probably thinking that this is also Warhol. Police are looking for villains in the entire Stockholm, but the search has not yielded results.

...Unit 3 Individual Project Art Appreciation HUMA 205 June 25, 2013 Abstract I will attempt to compare and contrast two pieces of art work from the renaissance period. Out of our textbook I chose a piece by Masaccio, The Holy Trinity. The piece of art I chose from a website is from Leonardo da Vinci called Madonna and Child. Both pieces of art are masterpieces of the early renaissance period. Renaissance Paintings and the Artists For many Europeans the renaissance was a period of achievement and worldwide exploration. It was a time of discovery. A time of new and renewed understanding that changed the medieval times and laid the foundation for modern society. Masaccio became the first major painter of the Italian Renaissance. He greatly influenced the art of painting in the renaissance. He moved Italian painting away from the idealizations of Gothic art and presenting his work as a more profound, natural, and humanist world. The Holy Trinity was the last painting he did and is considered one of his greatest masterpieces. Masaccio constructed his masterpiece with simplicity and naturalistic, three dimensionality. (The Holy Trinity by Masaccio, nd) The Holy Trinity was one of the first paintings Masaccio used the linear perspective. Linear perspective is a mathematical system used for creating three dimensional shapes and figures on a flat surface. He used perspective to make the illusion of three dimensions. The perspective lines draw the......

...primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Although he was initially labeled a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Henri Matisse uses Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910. The movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. (Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionisms.

With then use of polka dots and motifs in her paintings to make wonderful works of art. Watercolors are also a bonus when looking at an art display as it can be very vivid and in high school I enjoyed doing thing that's involved the same things that she does. Pastels and Oils were also fun to use and were some personal favorites that make art a fun thing to do that someone who may not be interested in doing will like it. In one of her paintings from her exhibit, Infinite Obsession, she uses a wide variety of colors and polka dots. There are many different things that one could decipher about this painting but it almost looks like it could be a city or galaxy. The colors that stand out the most are green, blue, and red. It features an abundance of varying sights and colors that will wow a person with it being fluid and precise as it doesn't look like someone just threw paint on a board but it looks like someone did the work intentionally with thought and reasoning behind it.

...Introduction to Art and Art Forms Elizabeth Golden AIU Online Abstract This paper discusses various definitions of art. This discussion includes one example with description for eight different art forms. The art forms examined are paintings, sculptures, architecture, photography, printmaking, conceptual art, installation art, and performance art. Introduction to Art and Art Forms Art comes in many different forms, and is defined in many different ways. Art has the ability to make a person feel a certain way. Art can inspire, beautify, or devastate a person’s view of an object or experience. It is a creative expression of someone’s conscience. Skills, imagination, experience, and creativity are all involved in the various forms of artwork. Definition of Art Each and every person in the world defines art in their own unique way. According to the Britannica Concise Encyclopedia (2012), art is created visually, through ability or creativity. Imagination paves the way to the ability to create artwork. The Crystal Reference Encyclopedia (2005) simply defines art as skill. Everyone has a skill that he or she can do well; most of these skills can be portrayed as art. Making shelves, welding, painting, and tattooing are all a form of art. The Hutchinson Unabridged Encyclopedia (2013) states art is, “all the processes and products of human skill, imagination, and invention.” Technological creations, recipes...

...As a lover of art I tend to find, beauty in everything some way. Whether it be a simple flower out in a field of brown grass, or a pattern that everyone thinks looks too busy. I didn’t realize how the ‘Beauty is all around you’ quote would fit me until I actually started to study it. No, I’m not art major because I can’t draw to save my life, but I found that studying it for a hobby is more relaxing than I thought it would have been. Living in New York City, I was able to go to an art museum every weekend. Look at the different paintings on the wall and feel a different emotion for each. If was funny how an 18x24 painting could make me feel so different about certain things. All a painting is and ever will be, and lines and different stroke one a white canvas if you break it down bit by bit. But together those line and strokes make something beautiful. When I moved from New York I thought I would have to give up that passion for a whole year. I, personally knew that I could do it but then I would be bored on my weekends, something I didn’t want to happen ever especially since I felt I was moving to the middle of nowhere. But I was mistaken when I found out that El Paso had an art museum. That was very shocking news to me, I know not everywhere has an art museum or a museum at all. Recently I was able to visit, I know it’s not good to compare two things together all the time, of course the El Paso art museum isn’t, The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Whitney Museum of......

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

The Arts

...Art The Arts play a large role in the expression of inner thoughts and beauty in my life. From dance and music to abstract art our concept of life is shown through the various ways in which we interpret it. We use the Arts as a means of touching that part of us that we cannot reach with Physical Science, Social Science, or any of the Humanities. The arts allow us to be as specific or as abstract as we please. It helps us become closer to ourselves and to others around us. Though there has been a lot of confusion as to what the true definition of “good art” is, how we show others what is going on in our minds and inner souls cannot be judged, graded, criticized or revised by anyone other than ourselves. The arts play a valued role in creating cultures and developing and documenting civilizations. The arts teach us how to communicate through creative expression. Show us how to understand human experiences, past and present. Prepare us to adapt to and respect the ways others think, work, and express themselves. Music, singing, dancing, poetry, and sketching are just a few of the different forms of art that I use to express myself in a way that I enjoy. Because each art discipline appeals to different senses and expresses itself through different media, each adds a special richness to the learning environment. Arts help people Learn to identify, appreciate, and participate in the traditional and non-traditional art forms of their own communities and the communities of......

...One of the most thrilling opportunities was seeing the Renaissance fair in action. The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th century to the 17th. It began in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later on spread to Europe. The term Renaissance is used loosely to refer to a historical era in which there was a development of linear perspective within the art of painting, and a increasing spread of educational reform. This cultural movement was the bridge between the modern era and the Middle Ages. It was seen as an intellectual pursuit in which social and political upheaval arose. This period is best known for its artistic developments from renowned artist such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Visiting the Faire was such a rewarding and wonderful experience because not only was I able to gain so much information about the period, I was able to learn it through having fun and enjoying myself. There were Men in tights, knights on horses, beautiful and entertaining shows, wonderful food, jousting, and very fun activities. I’d seen various movies such as Lord of the Rings and Dragonheart and ever since I was a kid I’ve always been in love with that period. The various fables of knights and tales of sword fighting always intrigued me. The fact that I was able to witness it first hand was such a fulfilling and wonderful experience! I saw the wardrobe of knights, peasants, and noblemen alike. I was able to see blacksmiths at work and gun, queens, and......

The Art

...According to the article Art, the definition of art is “the concept that any form of creativity should be valued for its own merits alone, rather than measured against some fixed set of criteria that is laid down by the art establishment.” The second article the definition of Art “expresses human imagination, not least when it engages with humanity's destiny.” An example of painting "The Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci the painting is an Image of a lady smiling because she is pregnant according to the article The Art Newspaper. This painting goes with the second definition of art because it expresses how Mona Lisa feels about being pregnant. An example of sculpture is by Auguste Rodin “The Thinker Statue” the purpose of The Thinker statue was to represent the artist as himself at the top of the door reflecting, The Thinker is a man in sober meditation battling with a powerful internal struggle. The sculpture is a man with a pose with hand to the chin, right elbow to the left knee, and crouching position. An example of Architecture is by Gregory Ain he is known for “Dunsmuir Flats, designed in 1937, brought in Neutra's influence in greater measure, but also displayed Ain's own ideas, limiting building costs while combining both privacy and exterior light.” An example of photography according to worlds famous photos is by Arthur Sasse, he took a photo of Albert Einstein is one of the most popular figures he is considered a genius because he created the Theory of Relativity...

The Eight Types of Art

...The Eight Types of Art Carita Dauer Art Appreciation HUMA 205-1202B Unit 1 IP Abstract In this paper I will explain the difference between eight types of art. These forms of art include: painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, printmaking, conceptual art, installation art, and performance art. I will then give a specific example of each form of art type to better explain each of them. The Eight Types of Art When a person tries to look up the word “Art” in the dictionary, it can be very difficult to find a clear definition of the word. There are many definitions for art, but these include various areas of art such as pop art, or modern art and not just art by itself. So with that being said the best definitions I found are as follows. Art is a visual form of human expression that can be applied to many subjects which engenders, by intent or otherwise, aesthetic and/or intellectual appreciation (Clarke, 2012). Art can also be classified as all of the processes and products of human skill, imagination, and invention. When the term is referring to a contemporary piece of art, the definitions of art usually reflect art theory and include music, drama, painting, and sculpture types (Art, 2010). Performance Art is defined as a dramatic presentation given by visual artists, such as actors or dancers. They generally perform in front of audiences, but not in a formal theatrical setting (Frank, 2011). The example I found of this type of art would be the......
