Arts 1301: Introduction to Visual Arts: Week 1 *Bird in Flight by Constantin Brancusi,1930: portrays not the bird itself but the idea of it: giving a sense of flight. He called it “the soul liberated from matter”  The impulse for creating art has been incredibly old o Chauvet cave in southeastern France: Oldest known cave painting from 30,000 BCE, example of Upper Paleolithic Art o Unsure of why it was made  Neanderthals did not have an impulse to create anything original  Paleolithic=Old Stone Age: stage of development, not a particular date  Neolithic=New Stone Age: named for new kinds of stone tools invented; domestication of animals and crops: ex: Stonehenge o Stonehenge (megaliths): in Salisbury Plain, England o Oriented to the movements of the sun; sort of calendar possibly *Remember: Stemmed Vessel (from Weifang, Shandong, China): c 2000 BCE: Black pottery: Longshan culture o Is not practical, possibly used for ceremonies o early sophisticated pottery making; China has had the longest continues civilization and so a lot of artsy things come up from it o Neolithic art  “Art”: does not usually have a function: it is a pure aesthetic pleasure  But Greeks did create vases that were used but very rarely Maya Lin and the Veterans War Memorial: Washington DC, 1982  Vanitas: painting portrays items such as skulls, books, maps, calendar, paper, astrolabe, flowers, bubbles, etc.  Shows that death is luring over us; warning sign; time is short and fleeting- do not indulge yourself.  Vanitas originated in Flanders and Netherlands in the 17 century. They’re versions of still life.  Artistic role in Jahangir Receives a Cup from Khursan (Monohar), 17 century: to record and commemorate  In order to appreciate a work of art, it is crucial to know: how and why it was made; place in art history What do artists do?  Create places for some human purpose  Ex: Veterans War Memorial: first leads to death but then reconciles by bringing up to hope (the way it’s structured)  Create extraordinary versions of ordinary objects  Record and commemorate  Give form to the unknown  Give form to feelings and ideas  Allow us see the world in a different way
