I decided to do my first response paper on the topic of dada art (pages 1148-1152). This art form in my opinion is the most conversial art form ever in America’s history and greatly interests me due to the misconception about this art form. With artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Raoul Hausmann, and Hans Arp, these artists show the complexity and un-guide lined art that is called data art. With this new form of art, people had no idea how to react to something that was not known as art for so many years but meaningless scribbles until the 20th century. I’m going to give you a little history and perspectives in this type of art, known as dada art. You will understand why this art form is much speculated to not be an art form but something that is being portrayed as “anti-art”. With similar acts of great self-expression shown throughout history, always comes some form of hate towards these expressions. Georges Hugnet the author of The Bulletin of the Museum of Modern Art Vol. 4, No. 2, Dada and Surrealism states that, “Dada is ageless, it has no parents, but stands alone, making no distinction between what is and what is not.” “It approves while denying, it contradicts itself, and acquires new force by this very contradiction.”
The origin of dada art is said to be created by Romanian poet Tristan Tzara, yet Richard Huelsen and Hugo Ball had discovered the name dada by randomly by plunging a knife into a dictionary repeatedly. Dada was an international signifier of negation, which this art took the almost proven factor out of art. This art is not just paintings or sculptures, instead with things like vandalized Mona Lisa’s, a broken toilet, paintings that directly insult politician leaders. This art form took on an impression of its own for its time. Such works, in their willful denial of the artist’s aesthetic sensibilities, were considered by many used to thinking of…...

What Is Arts

...INTRODUCTION ART has not always been what we think it is today. An object regarded as Art today may not have been perceived as such when it was first made, nor was the person who made it necessarily regarded as an artist. Both the notion of "art" and the idea of the "artist" are relatively modern terms. Many of the objects we identify as art today -- Greek painted pottery, medieval manuscript illuminations, and so on -- were made in times and places when people had no concept of "art" as we understand the term. These objects may have been appreciated in various ways and often admired, but not as "art" in the current sense. ART lacks a satisfactory definition. It is easier to describe it as the way something is done -- "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others" (Britannica Online) -- rather than what it is. The idea of an object being a "work of art" emerges, together with the concept of the Artist, in the 15th and 16th centuries in Italy. During the Renaissance, the word Art emerges as a collective term encompassing Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture, a grouping given currency by the Italian artist and biographer Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century. Subsequently, this grouping was expanded to include Music and Poetry which became known in the 18th century as the 'Fine Arts'. These five Arts have formed an......

Charles Peignot, of the Paris foundry Deberny Et Peignot, recruited Frutiger based upon the quality of the illustrated essay Schrift / Écriture / Lettering: the development of European letter types carved in wood. Frutiger's wood-engraved illustrations of the essay demonstrated his skill, meticulousness, and knowledge of letterforms. At Deberny & Peignot foundry, Frutiger designed the typefaces "Président", "Méridien", and "Ondine". In the event, Charles Peignot set Frutiger to work upon converting extant typefaces for the new phototypesetting Linotype equipment.

Art in Industry

...Industry Art It was a time of assembly lines and factories, booming population and industrialism, it was the 20th century and it was building speed. As the suburban American family turned the doorknob to their brand new, mass-produced, Levittown house they were clueless to the impact that their Model- T Ford would summon on the new modern art era. Hundreds of artists filled the modern era, but Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol and Banksy were among the few who were influenced by the new industrial world to change the face of art. In 1887, Marcel Duchamp was born to an artistic family in France. At age sixteen, he desired to be a painter (Stafford). Duchamp was introduced to the Dada art movement that sprung up in 1914. Leadership, bourgeois culture and support of war disgusted the Dadaists and they eliminated the act of labeling art (The Art Story Foundation). So Duchamp moved to New York in 1915 to begin production on his new readymade art. He took everyday objects, a bicycle wheel or snow shovel, put it in a gallery and let the consumer deem it art. The most notorious work of Duchamp, and considered the most influential piece of modern art (Higgins), a urinal turned on its back and renamed Fountain shown at an exhibition for the Society of Independent Artists in 1917 (The Art Story Foundation). A urinal, undoubtedly plucked off an assembly line months before, intended for public usage, was sitting in a gallery underlining the interdependency between art and realistic life.......

...primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Although he was initially labeled a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Henri Matisse uses Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910. The movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. (Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionisms.

With then use of polka dots and motifs in her paintings to make wonderful works of art. Watercolors are also a bonus when looking at an art display as it can be very vivid and in high school I enjoyed doing thing that's involved the same things that she does. Pastels and Oils were also fun to use and were some personal favorites that make art a fun thing to do that someone who may not be interested in doing will like it. In one of her paintings from her exhibit, Infinite Obsession, she uses a wide variety of colors and polka dots. There are many different things that one could decipher about this painting but it almost looks like it could be a city or galaxy. The colors that stand out the most are green, blue, and red. It features an abundance of varying sights and colors that will wow a person with it being fluid and precise as it doesn't look like someone just threw paint on a board but it looks like someone did the work intentionally with thought and reasoning behind it.

...As a lover of art I tend to find, beauty in everything some way. Whether it be a simple flower out in a field of brown grass, or a pattern that everyone thinks looks too busy. I didn’t realize how the ‘Beauty is all around you’ quote would fit me until I actually started to study it. No, I’m not art major because I can’t draw to save my life, but I found that studying it for a hobby is more relaxing than I thought it would have been. Living in New York City, I was able to go to an art museum every weekend. Look at the different paintings on the wall and feel a different emotion for each. If was funny how an 18x24 painting could make me feel so different about certain things. All a painting is and ever will be, and lines and different stroke one a white canvas if you break it down bit by bit. But together those line and strokes make something beautiful. When I moved from New York I thought I would have to give up that passion for a whole year. I, personally knew that I could do it but then I would be bored on my weekends, something I didn’t want to happen ever especially since I felt I was moving to the middle of nowhere. But I was mistaken when I found out that El Paso had an art museum. That was very shocking news to me, I know not everywhere has an art museum or a museum at all. Recently I was able to visit, I know it’s not good to compare two things together all the time, of course the El Paso art museum isn’t, The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Whitney Museum of......

Avant-Garde Art - Manifestos

...At the turn of 20th century, the relationship between art and society was changing rapidly. Several art movements emerged, with artists strongly believing that the main goal of art was to influence and change status quo. This change was caused and influenced by several issues, such as rapid technological development, development of science, philosophy or photography, crucial cultural and political changes, first world war, etc. In this paper, I will discuss the aim and the effect of three important 20th century movements that are integrally related to the growth and development of Modernism in the early 20th century: dada, surrealism and futurism, analyzing their manifestos and works of art, how they challenged their modernity and what impact did they have on latter development of art. The first art manifesto of the 20th century was introduced by Futurists in Italy in 1909. Before that time, the manifesto was almost exclusively a declaration with political aims. The intention of different artists adopting the form, therefore, was to indicate that they are employing art as a political tool, addressing wider issues such as the need for revolution, problems of political system and/or society, freedom of expression, etc. Moreover, it was not uncommon for manifesto writers and other members of the movements of the early 20th century to also be politically active. Futurist leader – Marinetti was one of the young intellectuals and artists who actively opposed Italian government’s...

Hum and Art

...HUM 1 1. What is Humanities? The humanities include the stories people tell, the art and music they make, the buildings they live and work in. The word humanity comes to English from the Latin humanitas, which first shows up with the writer Cicero. He used it to describe good people, that is to say "civilized" human beings. Humane people recognize and practice concepts like "hospitality" and "justice. The humanities introduce us to people we have never met, places we have never visited, and ideas that may have never crossed our minds. By showing how others have lived and thought about life, the humanities help us decide what is important in our own lives and what we can do to make them better. 2. What is Art? The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. 3.

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

Art History

...Abstract Expressionism developed after the end of World War II. Due to the outrage, desperation of the post war along with alienation and loss of faith led artist to explore different kinds of art. Hence, abstract expressionism began in New York in the 1940's -1950's as a sign of rebellion. The two modes of this new form of art in the United States are Action Painting and Color Field Painting. Action painters wanted to portray paint texture and the movement of the artist hand by dripping and splashing paint. Color Field Painting were mostly focused on the color and shape to create more peaceful and spiritual paintings which was a more mythic type of art. Paul Jackson Pollock also known by only Jackson Pollock was considered an action painter. I chose Pollock because he was a major figure in the movement of Abstract Expressionism and the New York School among other colleagues. He wanted his painting to be portrayed for what they were and eventually started numbering his art pieces rather than naming them. Willem De Kooning was also known to influence the New York School and was considered an action painter. I chose him mainly because his wife also became influenced by the arts and became an action painter herself. He was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Lyndon Johnson. Mark Rothko was considered a Color Field Painter. I chose Rothko for this type of abstract expressionism since he was one of the artist in New York that......

...One of the most thrilling opportunities was seeing the Renaissance fair in action. The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th century to the 17th. It began in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later on spread to Europe. The term Renaissance is used loosely to refer to a historical era in which there was a development of linear perspective within the art of painting, and a increasing spread of educational reform. This cultural movement was the bridge between the modern era and the Middle Ages. It was seen as an intellectual pursuit in which social and political upheaval arose. This period is best known for its artistic developments from renowned artist such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Visiting the Faire was such a rewarding and wonderful experience because not only was I able to gain so much information about the period, I was able to learn it through having fun and enjoying myself. There were Men in tights, knights on horses, beautiful and entertaining shows, wonderful food, jousting, and very fun activities. I’d seen various movies such as Lord of the Rings and Dragonheart and ever since I was a kid I’ve always been in love with that period. The various fables of knights and tales of sword fighting always intrigued me. The fact that I was able to witness it first hand was such a fulfilling and wonderful experience! I saw the wardrobe of knights, peasants, and noblemen alike. I was able to see blacksmiths at work and gun, queens, and......

...According to the article Art, the definition of art is “the concept that any form of creativity should be valued for its own merits alone, rather than measured against some fixed set of criteria that is laid down by the art establishment.” The second article the definition of Art “expresses human imagination, not least when it engages with humanity's destiny.” An example of painting "The Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci the painting is an Image of a lady smiling because she is pregnant according to the article The Art Newspaper. This painting goes with the second definition of art because it expresses how Mona Lisa feels about being pregnant. An example of sculpture is by Auguste Rodin “The Thinker Statue” the purpose of The Thinker statue was to represent the artist as himself at the top of the door reflecting, The Thinker is a man in sober meditation battling with a powerful internal struggle. The sculpture is a man with a pose with hand to the chin, right elbow to the left knee, and crouching position. An example of Architecture is by Gregory Ain he is known for “Dunsmuir Flats, designed in 1937, brought in Neutra's influence in greater measure, but also displayed Ain's own ideas, limiting building costs while combining both privacy and exterior light.” An example of photography according to worlds famous photos is by Arthur Sasse, he took a photo of Albert Einstein is one of the most popular figures he is considered a genius because he created the Theory of Relativity...
