Art History: Abstract Expressionism, Color FieldFor the second half of this Art History segment on Abstract Expressionism, I thought I'd go into one of the techniques used. In my last entry, we talked a bit about action painting, or Pollock's chief technique of smearing, dripping, splashing, etc.Art History: Abstract Expressionism, Color Field by `oilsoaked
Today, how about a little bit of color field? Perhaps one of the most recognizable techniques of the movement, used by Mark Rothko, Joan Miró, Adolph Gottlieb and many others.
What exactly is color field? If you check out those links above, you'll see familiar paintings and it'll start coming together. Around the 50s-60s, the abstract movement sort of split to find out how else paint can be used. Quit
Art History: Abstract Expressionism, Day 1So you're interested in a bit of Art History, are ye? We've got you covered. You may remember a series I ran in 2008 called Art History Spotlight. You might not. Regardless, one of the topics covered in that series was Abstraction, or the Abstract Movement (vague. haha).Art History: Abstract Expressionism, Day 1 by `oilsoaked
This time around, over the next two days, I will be covering Abstract Expressionism in further detail. If you're looking for a layman's perspective covering the basics and origins, you can find that spotlight here.
So let's talk about Jackson Pollock, shall we? For both those familiar and those not so much, Pollock was an incredibly popular artist of the Abstract Expressionism movement. You may have seen his work exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York or the Tate in London.
The biggest deal about Jackson Pollock (1912-56) is the he
Art History - Anthro Anthro Art - The BeginningArt History - Anthro by ^KovoWolf
Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics and qualities to non-human beings, objects, natural, or supernatural phenomena. Gods, animals, the forces of nature, and unseen or unknown authors of chance are frequent subjects of anthropomorphosis. The term comes from two Greek words, άνθρωπος (anthrōpos), meaning "human," and μορφή (morphē), meaning "shape" or "form." The suffix "-ism" originates from the morpheme "-isma" in the Greek language. .
The actual 'date' when Anthropomorphic art came to light isn't well documented so we can only go off what has been left behind for us to observe. This is most noted in literature, sculptures and fables.
From the beginnings of human behavioral modernity in the Upper Paleolithic, about 40,000 years ago, examples of zoomorphic (animal
Street Photography - The OriginsAs we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks. Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well. What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.Street Photography - The Origins by `StamatisGR
Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”
Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While chro

As part of deviantART's Art History Project, ~Topicality and yours truly have prepared news articles regarding Impressionism, an art movement from the 19th Century whose main characteristic is the presence of tin yet visible brush strokes to create shapes that compose an image.
Today we bring you Pierre-August Renoir's biography, one of the biggest representatives of the style.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)
Born in Limoges on February 25 1841, Renoir was the sixth child of a working class family. In his youth he had a job at a porcelain factory, where people noticed his artistic talent and was chosen to paint designs on fine china. He also painted fans and religious hangings for missionaries.
At that time, Renoir often visited the Louvre, where he studied the work of the French Masters, dreaming of one day becoming one and having his art on those very same walls.
He began studying art in 1862 under Charles Gleyre in Paris, where he m

In this article we will review the life of Impressionism founder Camille Pissarro.
Camille Pissarro (1830-1903)
Born in July 10 1830 in the Danish West Indies, he moved to Paris, France in order to pursue his artistic career. Regarded a key figure to the Impressionism movement, he was the only artist present in all 8 Paris Impressionist exhibitions held by the Society of Anonymous Painters, Sculptors and Printers. His colleagues viewed him as a father figure and someone to look up for advice and they called him "father Pissarro".
Much like Claude Monet, Pissarro showed interest in the arts at an early age. He went against his father's wishes to become a business man and after moving to Venez

This doesn't need to be your career. Or even the artwork you create today.
Maybe you were the one who did the random major in French Sculpture, that you never thought you'd use?
Or you're the young professional who makes their living as a photographer / investment banker / waitress, but still remembers that paper you did on Picasso in high school, and you do so love that crazy fella?
Or you were the teenager that listened to punk and heavy metal, but had secretly painted your room a dusky papyrus-beige and stenciled gold hieroglyphics all along the wall?
(Extra credit to whoever can guess which one of these was me )
