Les Demoiselles dAvignon
Les Demoiselles d’Avignon Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (see appendix, figure1) was the prototype of the art movement ‘Cubism’. It was painted by the artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and its style resembled nothing within the antiquity of the Western world. Its intentions were of a revolutionary nature; and its achievements were nothing short of its expectations. As Cubism developed, its representation of the subject became increasingly void of naturalistic appearance, until it was bordering on pure

Literary Essay Task: How is Shylock presented in Act 4 Scene 1? Use textual evidence in your answer. In Act 4 Scene 1, Shylock is portrayed as a dislikeable and stubborn character, a merciless and evil man. This is because of the way he speaks and what he says, and this is also how the other characters perceive him. However, his attitude changes when Portia enters the room disguised as a lawyer, therefore proving that his character is more complex than it first appears. At the start of the scene

Edvard Munch
Edvard Munch Lots of things turned Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch into the thoroughly miserable bloke he was (though you'd never guess it from his paintings, would you?), including his mum's death when he was five, the religious mania and death of his father and the death of his brother. And then there were the other family illnesses and tragedies, not to mention his problems with ... girls. So, (having decided to give stand-up comedy a miss) Edvard made up his mind to be an artist, spent some y

Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), the second-oldest child of the court musician and tenor singer Johann van Beethoven, was born in Bonn. Ludwig's father drilled him thoroughly with the ambition of showcasing him as a child prodigy. Ludwig gave his first public performance as a pianist when he was eight years old. At the age of eleven he received the necessary systematic training in piano performance and composition from Christian Gottlob Neefe, organist and court musician in

Edvard Munch A spectre is haunting pop culture - the spectre of The Scream, Edvard Munch's 1893 painting of a wild-eyed figure on a bridge, hands clapped to his head, mouth contorted in a silent shriek of angst and anomie. The tormented face of one man's despair and alienation, set against the social fragmentation and moral vertigo of the last fin-de-siecle, has been resurrected and pressed into service, through pop-culture pastiche and parody, as the poster child for self-mocking millennial anx

Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso On October 25, 1881 Maria Picasso Lopez gave birth to a son. Little did she know that that child was an artist. Picasso himself once said “every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up”. So the question is, was Picasso right, was he an artist from birth or did the way in which he lived make him the artist that he became? Pablo Picasso’s father, Jose Ruiz Blasco, was an artist and a teacher at San Telmo school of arts and industrial design in Mala

Realism

Realism Journal www.artlex.com defines realism as the realistic and natural representation of people, places, and/or things in a work of art (the opposite of idealization). One of the common themes of postmodernism is that this popular notion of an unmediated presentation is not possible. This sense of realism is sometimes considered synonymous with naturalism. And Realism (with an upper case R ), also known as the Realist school, denotes a mid-nineteenth century art movement and style in which
