The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. There are ACTUAL SLIDES on this page for your review. These are your best means of assessment. EXCERPT: Art Nouveau 1890-1910 was an international movement. A unique aspect to it was its being more pronounced in the the decorative arts and architecture instead of painting and sculpture. Thus this was an egalitarian art movement. Art Nouveau means "New Art" in French but English speaking countries use the French, calling it Art Nouveau. It did not give the usual preference to painting and sculpture that they were typically given. Instead, all the arts, and especially the decorative ones, came in on an even playing field. This was a modern art movement. People were given a chance to embrace organic and geometric forms instead of the Victorian Era’s heavy, overdone and cumbersome objects. Flowing, natural forms and angular, sleeker contours became an incredibly appealing aesthetic to them. The principle became: function of an object should dictate its form. Art Nouveau & Graphic Art Mass-produced graphics were a significant aspect of the Art Nouveau Movement. Paris-based Czech artist Alphonse Mucha was the initial and key person with his very appealing posters. His posters soon brought other artists into the same realm and their Art Nouveau works were painted, drawn, and printed in the popular formats of advertisements, posters, labels, and magazines. Glass Art was another big part of the movement. Louis Comfort Tiffany in New York became as one with “the Tiffany Lamp.” But his studio’s work was so much more than just the lamps.

Africa ~ Art ~ Art History ~ African ~ Art ~ 152 Slides

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FROM THE SHOW POSTED ON THIS PAGE. These slides give you the best idea of whether the material will suit your needs. Africa is a huge continent with many diverse peoples and cultures. Accordingly, African art is not one type of art. It varies considerably among these peoples. The easiest way of dealing with this continent's art is to break it down into regions. There are still differences to be found within the regions but they aren’t as stark. Thus, there are four regions to consider: Western Africa, Eastern Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa. Because Northern Africa is adjacent to the Middle East, it is Islamic. Thus its art is also Islamic. North African art is thus studied along with Islamic art and not along with African art. African art until very recently did not follow western traditions of painting, on an easel or otherwise. When it turned to painting, it used dyes, textiles, weaving and basketry. Africans also used more perishable materials, such as wood for sculptures. Masks and human figures were and are made by artists throughout these regions, often for religious ceremonies.

American West ~ Art History ~ Western Art ~ Art ~ 203 Slides

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist. This is a complete presentation on the American West's Art History. It is highly visual and thoroughly annotated. There are many actual slides from the presentation shown on this page. Excerpt: Bullet Points Overview Western art embodies the European artistic tradition. It was adapted to suit the American West. “Manifest destiny,” the entrepreneurial push Westward, is an integral part of the white man’s American West. Native Americans are also covered within Western art. The Native Americans’ American West is different from the white man’s. Although it was a physical place, their home, it was also a sacred place and an inherent part of their spirituality. Western art defined traditionally: realistic art work about Indians, white pioneers and the environmentally pure, vast landscapes of the West. Those creating Western art west of the Mississippi today do not agree with this hidebound definition. They believe the art form is capable of evolving and encompassing more modern and diverse styles. The Western art of the past was Anglo oriented. Breaking away from the Anglo perspective to other perspectives is a pent-up demand. The people making Western art now include Americans with Native, Hispanic, or Chinese heritages plus female artists and environmentalists. They all add in their own perspective of their people and the American West. They are a minority though. White males and Native Americans are the most active artists in Western Art.

Art Mythology ~ Painting Myths ~ 181 Slides ~ Art & Literature ~ Highly Visual

This is a complete powerpoint presentation about Art & Literature as it pertains to Mythology, its characters and stories. There are many slides for your review in the slideshow box shown here with this listing. EXCERPT: Art & Mythology Art lovers are used to religion dominating early art works. But mythology was also an enticing lure to artists. Myths endure up to the present day as alluring subject matter. Belief and faith are not required in myths. They are known to be fictional, which is fine. Although myths frequently come to us from Greek and Roman mythology, they also come to us from fairy tales, fables, folk lore, legends and other fictional resources. Later on in the presentation, we will see that artist Andy Warhol makes a compelling argument that modern mythical characters are even more potent than ones from centuries ago. His myths involve The Wicked Witch of the West, Mickey Mouse and Santa Claus, among other subjects. Art and literature often come together with myths. After all, they are as wonderful to look at as they are to read. Many books of myths come illustrated by these art works, which adds to the experience. Fairy tales, in particular, rarely are issued without art work. Myths are possessed by every group of people, every culture, on the planet. They are a collection of stories a group of people tell to explain themselves and their culture. Today’s “urban legends” are nothing more than myths being spread in a new way, on the internet. Our goal with this presentation is to study the visual imagery of myths as created by artists.

Woodcut Art ~ Printing ~ Art History ~ from Albrecht Durer to Chuck Close

The author is a retired attorney and a still producing artist. This is a complete powerpoint presentation about Woodcut Art from Durer's time to present day with Chuck Close. The Slides are highly visual and in full color. There is an accompanying textual explanation. Many slides are shown in the slideshow box on this page to give you the best idea of what the presentation is like. THERE IS A FREE POSTER WHICH GOES WITH THIS PRODUCT, LOCATED HERE: TEXT EXCERPT: Woodcut defined: is a relief printing technique in printmaking. An artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood—typically with gouges—leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts. Wood block printing can be done in either black or white or color. The black and white developed first. Wood block printing first emerged in Asia around the 8th century and in Europe around 1400. The 16th century added the chiaroscuro wood cut. This method allowed more subtle tonal variations. Increased shadows and highlights made the print look more like a drawing or watercolor. It was Japan which provided the future look of color woodcuts. In the second half of the 1800s, Japan opened up to trade. Its former Isolationism had been broken through war. Among the wares floating west were colored Japanese woodcuts by Hokusai, Hiroshige, and others. Their woodcuts became works of art in their own right. The best of these were the ukiyo-e prints. The artists in Europe adopted these color woodcuts into their oeuvre. The European artists, especially the ones in France, became instant fans and collectors of these woodcuts. They were also flooded by ideas for their own art that would incorporate some or all aspects of the Japanese woodcuts. In the United States, color wood block prints were adopted during the Depression for government-sponsored New Deal art projects. European woodcuts were first stamped onto textiles, playing cards and religious souvenirs. This was because paper was not generally available until the 14th century. In the 15th century, European artists used the woodcut to illustrate printed books. Woodcuts were at first colored by hand. Then register printing was used wherein a separate block was used for each color.

New Zealand ~ Art History ~ 211 Slides ~ Kiwi ~ Maori ~ Art

The author is a retired attorney and still producing artist. MANY ACTUAL SLIDES ARE SHOWN ON THIS PAGE. THEY ARE THE BEST INDICATION OF THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT. ART OF NEW ZEALAND, A PRESENTATION. EXCERPT: The art in New Zealand is primarily of historical interest to the rest of the world until the twentieth century. The whites were settling the land in the 1800s and the art work records all of this in the white European way. The most usual way such an artist got to New Zealand was that the ship’s company hired him to record the journey. They were not looking for great creativity but rather faithful reproductions. The Māori continued to do their art works in the 1800s but the two groups had no common art interest. The Māori idea of art was very practical as the whites colonized. The art had to be usable. They used it as soon as they created it. This did not make for Māori collections and museums in the 1800s or thereafter. Plus they worked in materials which perished, like wood carvings and weavings. (Their works done on rock, however, are still there.) It was gradual in the 20th century, the two groups taking notice of one another’s art. There are three groups influencing the art in the country. They are the Māori, the Samoans and the whites derived from Europe. The Māori were in the country first whereas the Samoans are recent additions. They are all able to speak English to one another and are even trying to speak Māori to one another. They go to the same fine arts schools although native arts centers also remain. This cultural hodge podge has been very invigorating in the arts. The hybrid art works are very inventive and creative and unlike other work.
