Chapter 4 Notes Artists are influenced by their time and place as well as by the work of their contemporaries as  well as predecessors. The Aesthetic Context: Convention  Convention – the standard way of doing things  Egypt used squares on a grid to show the proportions of a human body  In the 7­6 centuries B.C. the Greeks appropriated the conventions of Egypt art and  developed their own conventions of style  Picasso disrupted the expected relationships between the parts of the body  Sabarte’s disrupted the idea of symmetry  The Cultural Context: How Artists Learn  Traditionally artists learned by being apprentices to other artists, family workshops,  worked in thnventions, and studied academics.  In the 19  century they broke that and turned to master paintings or natural and urban  landscapes for inspiration.  The establishment of academics was significant in elevating the artist from craftsmen to  gentleman.  In the 2  half of the 19  century artists expanded to include contemporary society as  well as experimenting with new approaches to light, color, and form.  Later in the 19  century rebellion against the academy was associated with the rejection  of classicism and led to the early 20  century modern notion.  Cult of Bohemia – artists who worked in impressionist and postimpressionist style  formed an informal community.  The Artist as Individual  Innovation of impressionist and postimpressionist set the stage in 20  century for further  expansion of subject matter, experimentation with the visible nature of paint, and new  approaches to the picture surface.  Pollock – known for drip paintings  Benton – known for large scale mural painting of regional aspects of American life.
