Art History Assemblages Collages ~ 72 Slides ~ 1790-1910

Art History Assemblages Collages ~ 72 Slides ~ 1790-1910

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist.Rather than one slide of art work and then a slide about the artists, each artist has been given at least five art works in the presentation of his or her work on one slide. The work is thus in assemblage or collage format. The slide of the artist, which follows, shows a picture of the artist, the era or school when working and the dates of birth and death. The main artists covered are in the following movements: Romantic, Pre-Raphael, Impressionist, Post Impressionist, Neo Impressionist, Symbolist, Naive and Primitive. I have put each and every slide for you in the preview so you can view all of them. You can use this as an actual lesson, as a test, as flashcards, or all three. I have marked it as all three because of its varied possible use.

Portrait Art ~ Art History ~ Painting ~ Photography ~ Major Artists ~ 215 Slides

The author is a retired attorney and a still producing artist.THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FOR YOUR REVIEW ON THIS PAGE.EXCERPT: There is a magical element to portrait making. It is an elusive something else that the maker puts into the portrait which makes it the essence of the subject. This is not going to be the ability to draw the best. Nor will it be having the best camera equipment. Those help but they do not enable one to see. One must be able to observe the subject and grab on to the subject’s essence when it materializes. This may happen the first day or the second month. There is no telling. Then the portrait maker must practice alchemy: get what materialized into the picture.There is a perfect moment of creating art. We create the opportunity for it to appear. When we see that perfect moment finally appear, we have to capture it.

Magical Real ~ Art History ~ Magic Real ~ Art ~ Painting ~ 181 Slides

The author is a retired attorney and a still producing artist.ACTUAL SLIDES ARE ON THIS PAGE FOR YOUR REVIEW.This is a powerpoint presentation about Magical Realism & Magic Realism Art History. EXCERPT: OVERVIEW IN BULLET POINTS:~ Definition of magical realism: art movement of painting in a meticulously realistic style of imaginary or fantastic scenes or images.~ This movement is called Magical Realism (early years) OR Magic Realism (later years).~ began in Weimar Germany, then spread to Europe and was ultimately transported to North America. ~ representational art, mixed with elements of fantasy. ~ Magical Realism creates mystery through its details. It occurs in a sterile ambiance in which mystery would normally be lacking.~ very detailed, sharply focused and emotion fraught~ everyday world depicted in new and unfamiliar ways with often some hidden or suggestive content in the scene. Surrealism showed the fantastic. Magical Realism did not. ~ Franz Roh coined the term “magical realism” in 1925, in reference to the hidden, mystery element in the painting. ~ The first notable European exhibit was “Die Neue Sachlichkeit (The New Objectivity).” ~ America had its own major exhibition, "American Realists and Magic Realists."~ Andrew Wyeth was in this show and became the most successful American artist associated with Magic Realism. Wyeth's “Christina’s World” is a very well known Magic Realism painting. The aspect which is hidden is that Christina is not young. She is in her 50s. Plus she is handicapped and cannot walk.~ Two important North American Magic Realists were George Tooker, American, and Alex Colville, Canadian. ~ Unlike the Surrealists, the original Magical Realists were called the Quiet artists. Their paintings were subtle. They hid important elements instead of being overt.
