ART-HIS 100 Lecture 1: Introduction: Basic concepts of Art Historical Analysis 1. “Gardenscape from the Villa of Livia,” Prima porta, Italy (30-20 B.C.E.) 1) Composition: explains how an artist structures a painting using space, color and line.  Marble balustrade opens in delineated linear perspective around a large pine tree in the center of the panel.  Behind marble wall, there are pink roses, white daisies, and yellow chrysanthemums.  A quince (left) and a pomegranate (right) balance the central pine.  Foreground: very ordered and sharply detailed.  Middle and background: wilder and more sketchily painted. 2) Iconography: examines the meaning of pictorial elements within the Prima porta Gardenscape fresco. Iconography is the study of the symbols or meanings of the images in a particular culture.  This is a tending garden, even though no humans are present in the painting.  The plants which bloom in different seasons are in one place and at one time = garden never have existed. o Iris and violets – Spring o Daisies and roses – Summer o Chrysanthemums, quince and pomegranates – Fall  Symbols of plants o Ivy, laurel, myrtle, oak and pine were all used by the Romans to make triumphal crowns. o With palm trees, they are symbol of victory. o The coexistence of these elements is symbol of creation of timeless and triumphant paradise.  For the Romans, birds are tokens of fertility and messengers of Gods. They are also collection of different seasons and species.  Location: The underground room was probably used as a dining room. Romans loved to dine in cool places like grottoes in the hot summer months. o It's buff-colored upper border suggests we view this open-air garden through the framing stalactites of just such a cave. 3) Technique ART-HIS 100  This painting was done in true “fresco” (which means fresh in Italian). It is a wall painting done on damp (wet) plaster.  Because the chemical bond occurs between the painted pigments and the plaster, the paint never fades, but stays brightly colored and fresh.
