Art Appreciation – 1300 August 25 , 2016 Professor Gomez-Miraval Lecture Notes Line, Shape, and Mass (Line, shape, and mass are the foundations of ALL art) Line – the path of a moving point It is the most basic element yet the most complex; it builds all other elements Take for instance the works of Van Gogh o He had bipolar disorder and was possibly homosexual o Poor (whatever money he had went toward art supplies) o No artwork sales while he was alive o Ex. A Fishing Boat at Sea, 1888 His use of line in this painting depicts the setting (windy, water is choppy, there is rain off in the distance). We can infer that it is not wise for the boat to leave shore (they’re fishermen, storms = fish = $$$). If we look deeper, we can infer that Van Gogh painted this subject matter (the events or objects you are looking at) to portray his own life struggle at that point in time with money and making a living for himself. Line can have expressive personality, meaning it conveys emotions to those looking at the work of art. Qualities of Line: o Directionality: the direction of the line can convey specific emotions or perceptions Vertical Horizontal Diagonal Curved Anxiety Calm Movement Movement Discomfort Quiet (in transition from Based off the Attention- Relaxing vert. to hor.) curves of the Getting Not Moving Unstable human body (end of lecture for the 25 ) Professor also did make a note of another artist: Jackson Pollock He was one of the most famous American artists Prior to him, there were not many artists in America (the center of art was in Paris) He moved the center of art from Paris → New York
