Art History Lecture 1 August 19. 2016 How Artists are Distinguished Style: Comes from word “stylus," artist’s hand is a signature Period Style: Different artistic styles based on time period and trends of time Regional Style: Different cities/cultures have specific manner of painting (Titian, Venice) Personal Style/Connoisseurship: Distinct patterns artist exhibits (Da Vinci and sfumato style) Within one artist’s career, there can be several styles (youthful, mature, old age, etc.) Michaelangelo’s Pieta Vasari and "Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects" Published book of artworks, second addition was bestseller Became foundation of art for the next two centuries Vasari viewed art of Renaissance (16th century Italy) as the best, viewed Gothic style as bad Michelangelo: Vasari viewed him as a superb artist because of his artistic talent and the fact he was a poet Rivalries Sistine Chapel (Michelangelo) vs The School of Athens (Rapahel) Innovation Domes on Cathedrals Perspective in paintings Vasari and Nationalism Vasari wrote a myth that showcased an image of success that was not true during the time period Nationalism: historians have shown societies as modern, but nationalists believe them to be rooted in tradition Public education was viewed as a way to create nationalist citizens and unite them Color wheel and Mercator Projection emerged as a result History and tradition became very important (preservation, education, and historical research) Revolutionary monuments and paintings became prevalent (Arc de Triumph, France) Anthropology became important Way we categorize art is how we categorize people (other races/cultures) Said: "Invention, Memory, Place" Reading Manipulation, Oppression, and Elevation What we’re looking at and what might the story be that we haven’t heard Imaginative Geography How the West took the preconceived idea of the East and turned it into an exotic inspiration for Western artists City of Progress vs Lodgers…5 cents a spot Images show the same time period but different perspectives based on wealth, race, etc. Images are myths because you can’t take either one to make a judgement of a society, whether low or high class
