Neoclassical and Rococo Styles After Baroque Period


Neoclassical and Rococo styles contrast to each other. Neoclassicism appeared in 1780s, following Rococo style. Neoclassicism was a reaction to fluffiness and elaboration of Rococo style. These two movements gave rise after Baroque, one of the most impressive periods in the history of art.

Rococo movement gave rise against Baroque at the end of the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Baroque artists used geometrical shapes and aimed to give a dramatic and theatrical effect. It was complex and highly elaborated. Large scale designs were one of the basic features of Baroque. Scenes from Bible were used as Baroque themes. Baroque artists aimed to evoke a feeling of respect and fear and to emphasize the power of the Sun King. When the king died, the court artists moved away from formal Baroque art to a lighter and playful style, which was Rococo.

If we assume Baroque as a bottle of champagne, Rococo can be assumed as the foam on the champagne. Rococo art has some stylistic features of Baroque such as the complex forms, but the themes the Rococo artists are interested in were lighter. They did not deal with serious issues such as religious, moral or political themes. Instead, they focused on lively physical world, social life of aristocracy, personal amusement, romance and pleasure.Rococo style was characterized by asymmetry, curved lines and ornaments. Mostly, soft, pastel colors were used in Rococo style in contrast to dark colors of Baroque period. On the contrary to magnificent architecture and huge marble statues of Baroque period, Rococo style expressed itself mostly in small-scale interior designs, furniture, tapestries, porcelains and paintings. It is generally known as a decorative art style.

At the end of eighteenth century, Neoclassicism appeared as a reaction to the elaboration, lightness and bourgeoisie of Rococo style and focused on proportional and simple forms, virtual themes and Roman antiquity. Neoclassical artists cared for technical perfection, harmony and balance. Geometrical forms and columns were the main features of Neoclassical style. Sharp colors were used in contrast to pale colors of Rococo. Neoclassicism was a strong movement in literature and music as well as in architecture and visual arts.

Interest in Roman antiquity aroused with the archeological studies of the period. Discovery of antique ruins stimulated an admiration of civilization, art and glories of Greek and Roman era. The taste of art totally changed and ideal beauty of antique art was favored rather than nature itself. The neoclassical artists were inspired by noble simplicity of Greek and Roman figures. Meanwhile, it was the period of revolutionary movements and ancient Greek democracy was highly appreciated in this period. After serving to French Revolution, Neoclassicism had been the official art of the French empire when Napoleon took over power and aimed to show the magnificence of the empire with heroic figures. Neoclassical themes were based on virtues such as heroism, courage, honor, justice, devotion to duty and self-sacrifice. Neoclassicism dominated until the end of nineteenth century.

History — ‘art or Science’?


There is a raging debate over the fact that whether history is an art or science.
History as an Art:
Those who believe that history is an art advocate the following opinion :—
1) According to Rickman, “History deals with sequence of events, each of them unique while science is concerned with the routine appearance of things and aims at generation and the establishment of regularities, governed by laws.”
2) Colingwood says, “Events of history are the things which the historian looks, not at, but through, to discern the thought within.”
3) Some scholars are of the view that history is neither pure science nor pure art. In other words, a blending of the two. When it discovers facts it is a science and when it settles truths, it becomes an art.
4) Some of the people went to the view that history is a part of literature.
5) Historical data are not available for scientific observation and experiment.
6) History is an art only. It cannot be called science. It is not based upon certain concepts and ideologies.
7) Of course, history is a social science, which contacts with human life and actions.
8) In history, we have a set of the data. It is fully analysed and classified.
History is a science:—
From the following points we can define history as a science.
1) History aims at discovering facts of the past events and interprets them objectively.
2) History uses various traits of enquiry such as observation, classification, formulation of hypothesis and explanation of evidence before reconstructing the past.
3) History follows the trends of enquiry to find out.
4) History seeks to tell the fact by giving a scientific method, hence, it is a science.
5) Is history a science as physics or chemistry or biology are? It is of course a negative question. History is a social science. It deals only with the experiences of human beings and human civilizations.
6) Historical facts cannot be observed.
Then, what is history?
1) History is a unique subject possessing the potentials of both an art and a science.
2) Secondly, history is neither pure science nor art, hence, it is two sides of the same coin.
3) Thirdly, history of course is a social science and an art. In that condition history shows its flexibility and variety.
4) Fourthly, history is a subject of study is less or more completely at the mercy of sources.
5) Fifthly, history is a natural science.

Contemporary Art: the Importance in Today’s World


Contemporary art has gained a lot of importance in modern households. It has become one of the most sought after household items and it has been recognized in every aspect of human life. Modern art is nowadays a tool for interpersonal communication and has far reaching effects. The increased number of persons visiting exhibitions and art galleries clearly signifies the rise in contemporary art importance. It is an indicator about the awareness of art amongst the people.

Large appreciation of masses and easy understandability are the main reasons of success of modern art. The accessibility of these arts are easy as it is released in numerous copies and forms like disks, e-books etc. Original paintings, which were hard to get in the old days, are now easy accessible through art galleries, which eventually increased the number of admirers of modern art.

However, contemporary art critics raised an argument that some arts should be reserved for certain group of people. They argued that true appreciation of art can come from people who can understand modern art. In other words, only an artist can understand the value of an art. It is true in some cases, but an artist would like to get appreciation from as many people as possible. Contemporary art will continue to express publicly understood ideas so as to get the maximum appreciation from the public.

There are various ways of acquiring modern art today. Online auctions are one of the ways where by abstract arts, oil-based painting, and impression arts can be purchased. But before you make a purchase, it is important that you do some homework on what art you would like to collect. One way of collecting required information is to make extensive research work in the internet. Other sources include libraries, magazines etc. which can give you your desired information on art.

But you have to be careful when buying a contemporary art work as there are lots of fakes in the market. But you can appoint an appraiser for the art you want to purchase. Online art auctions generally keep a track record of the art seller’s sales history and can help you determine whether the seller is a reputable person.

Zettiology – What Kind of Art is That?


I recently discovered the fascinating world of Zettiology. It made me curious to know what this art style actually encompassed but I had trouble finding a definition of it for myself. Because of that I have hunted down some clues for you to consider.

Did I get it right I wonder?

Here is what I do know for sure: Zettiology is an art form based on the work of Teesha Moore. Teesha has a website showcasing her work. When I went to her site, I found myself in a different world and I got lost in it for awhile just marveling at her creations. What I did not find was a written definition of her art. It would be hard to define something you do intuitively and naturally, so maybe this is why there is no writing to help the viewer understand. The motives for not defining Zettiology are pure speculation on my part though. There are certainly pages of examples of Teesha’s work for people to study and form their own conclusions, but I wanted some words that told me about it as well.

What else is known about Zettiology?

First of all, the word was coined by Teesha Moore to describe a new genre, a blend of the ordinary and the fantastic. I can see it is about creating new creatures made both from the familiar and from the realms of fantasy. The new creatures belong together like a tribe: you could call them The Mythical Zettis.

One of the most succinct explanations I have found is that Zettiology is ‘Sustained Confusion.’ When you look at Zetti style artwork you will probably notice animal and people parts being cobbled together into one form, with outlining and doodling all around to make the fusions not so confusing. This makes for original, quirky art that is a little fun or silly.

Crafters often use black and white elements mixed alongside bright colours for their Zetti creations.

You may also find whimsical words or sayings handwritten or printed in an equally whimsical font alongside a Zetti creature.

Yet a Zetti art work is more than just these few elements. Zetti work produces a feeling of other-worldliness as well. I often marvel at how people put together so many different elements and make them work together so well.

Another way to think of Zetti art is to start with a human or animal figure (that is, with reality), then blend it with something fantastic or other worldly (that is, fantasy), such as adding wings to a child’s body. Add in other unexpected details such as striped legs or cone hats to make the new Zetti creature even more incongruous.

I guess you could think of Zetti as taking traditional ideas and blending them in nontraditional ways. You could take creatures you would doodle, then cut and paste them together at a whole new level. Use patterns and textures that contrast with each other as you form your new creature.

So to sum up, ways I have discovered to make your Zetti art are:

  • Aim to make the ordinary into something whimsical or from a fantasy world
  • Use contrasting textures and patterns
  • Use lots of bright colours but mix in some black and white patterns such as stripes
  • Use mismatched faces and bodies
  • Add body parts, clothing and/or wings to a creature who doesn’t usually have them
  • Give your creatures fantastic hats and crowns
  • Combine the quirky, odd and whimsical to make a new Zetti creature
  • Use lyrical, poetic, handwritten sayings or text/li>
  • Use outlining and doodling to bring all sorts of elements together

Did I capture the essence of Zettiness? Could anyone really do that but Teesha Moore? Perhaps not defining Zetti style makes it all the more fantastic and mysterious? I suppose we will have to draw our own conclusions!

The Art of John Updike’s "A & P"


John Updike’s best known, most anthologized and most frequently taught short story, “A & P,” first appeared in The New Yorker (22 July 1961: 22-24), a publication that assumes a reader with considerable literary and cultural knowledge. Updike, for whom literature and art have been intertwined since youth,(1) uses allusions to art and to art criticism to give the informed reader of “A & P” the experience of dramatic irony as a means toward constructing significance for the story. The popularity of “A & P” rests on a number of ironic ambiguities,(2) but the reader who perceives Updike’s allusions to art can take special pleasure in the plot, which leaves the nineteen-year-old narrator and protagonist, Sammy, feeling at the end both triumphant and sad, both winner and loser.

The setting is a small town north of Boston around 1960. Sammy is trying to clarify why he has impulsively quit his job as a cashier in the local A & P supermarket. He needs a sympathetic listener (or reader), someone who will grasp the meaning he is constructing for himself as he puts his actions into narrative order. Collapsing past and present in rapid yet reflective colloquial speech, Sammy tells how three teenage girls, barefoot, in bathing suits, came into the A & P store to make a purchase. As they move through the aisles, Sammy, from his work station, first ogles them and then idealizes the prettiest and most confident of the three. He names her, to himself, “Queenie”; and though he jokes with his fellow cashier about the girls’ sexiness, he is quietly disgusted by the butcher’s frankly lustful gaze as the girls search for what they want to buy. Worse is his manager’s puritanical rebuke for their beach attire as Queenie pays Sammy for her purchase. Outraged that his manager, Lengel, has made “that pretty girl blush” and wanting to demonstrate his refusal of such demeaning authority, Sammy quits his job on the spot. Though the girls leave without recognizing their hero, and though his manager tries to dissuade him from disappointing his parents, Sammy feels “that once you begin a gesture, it’s fatal not to go through with it” (196). He acts decisively, but the girls have disappeared from the parking lot by the time he exits the store. In practical terms, Sammy’s action has gained him nothing and cost him everything, but his narrative affirms his gesture as a liberating form of dissent.(3) Sammy does not see how he could have done otherwise, though he finds himself at odds with the only society he knows, sure that “the world will be hard to me, hereafter” (196).

Because Updike wrote “A & P” for The New Yorker, the story assumes a reader whose response to Sammy can go far beyond what the character can articulate for himself.(4) Walter Wells, calling attention to the elevated diction which concludes Sammy’s highly “ambivalent” epiphany, suggests that “hereafter” points Sammy toward an indefinite future in which he may or may not find “viable alternatives” to a “defunct romanticism” (133). I hope to show in this essay that Updike offers the reader a way to see that Sammy’s narrative, as a completed artistic gesture, is already in the mode of one of those alternatives. Sammy does look ahead as he senses the inadequacy of available cultural forms to express his sexuality and his moral sensitivity. Sammy does not, however, renounce the source of his will to act as he did. That source is triple: first, the ability to respond erotically to the beauty of a young woman’s body; second, to respond sympathetically and imaginatively to the individual person alive in that body; and third, to elaborate that double pleasure into expressive form. If Sammy has learned anything at the end of his story, he has learned it via his romantic desire which, though naive and selfdramatizing, drives the plot of “A & P.” We can think of Sammy’s narrative as Updike’s gesture to give Eros a form that will both ennoble and extend it as an aesthetic pleasure–while intensifying the impossibility of that desire’s completing itself in anything other than art. In other words, Updike has created in Sammy a character who attains the awareness of a modern artist, but who does not know that is what he has done.

To a large extent, the aesthetic pleasure in “A & P” depends upon the reader’s sensing this dramatic irony. Sammy’s words resonate and gain meaning through a larger artistic context out of which he comes (Updike’s knowledge and imagination) but of which he, the fictive character, is unaware. Updike offers the reader this particular irony through a playful and highly specific allusion to a work of art and to the corresponding modern aesthetic criticism it helped inspire. That allusion, unconscious on Sammy’s part but certainly not on Updike’s, is to Sandro Botticelli’s fifteenth-century Neo-Platonic painting, usually referred to as The Birth of Venus (c. 1482). In design, the painting recalls a medieval triptych, but its central figure is the Greek goddess of love, nude and pensive, standing tall in her scallop shell as she is blown ashore from her sea-birth by a male figure emblematic of wind or spirit. Venus is flanked by two female forms, one entwined with the wind and the other about to receive her on shore with a regal mantle. These two attendants have been identified as the Horae, allegorical figures for time. The painting’s details are realistic, but the overall effect is ethereal, gorgeous, and sad. For all its allegory, Botticelli’s Venus, in Ronald Lightbown’s commentary, is “the first surviving celebration [in the history of the Renaissance] of the beauty of the female nude, represented for its own perfection rather than with erotic or moral overtones … the celebration is almost impressionistic … Venus is indifferent to us” (1:89).

Advantages of Online Art Galleries


People are generally too busy these days to do even routine tasks and just want to rush back home after work to relax. One has to be an art enthusiast to spare time to visit an exhibition. Moreover, if there are two or more exhibitions at the same time, you will rarely be able to attend both, no matter how much you wish you could. Obviously, you would have to give one exhibition a miss and find solace in the joys of the other.

Thankfully, purchasing methods for art have evolved over the centuries. Today, cyberspace is the most popular and the latest platform for art browsing, auctioning, selling, and of course buying. For the modern art buyer, it is very exciting to move around online art galleries.

Art lovers have the opportunity to see many more pieces and to appreciate them at their own leisure rather than visiting a traditional gallery. There is also the advantage of discretion on an auction and sale websites as it is much easier to make a bid and to buy an item. Generally, the rules for selling and purchasing remain the same, but the purchaser should be internet-savvy to understand the system properly. Every online gallery provides useful tips for buying and selling, even if you are new to the process.

A large number of quality artworks is received by the galleries from across the world. Superb works from renowned artists that will increase the range of your collection are easily obtainable. The purchase would take place directly between the buyer and the seller, but galleries also provide assistance to obtain artwork directly from the artists. Their website links and email addresses are noted under their respective works.

Get yourself listed with the gallery so that they can send you updated emails of future events. Previews of an artist’s work can also be forwarded through email so you can have a look at some pieces at your leisure. A full record of earlier exhibitions and paintings is also maintained for your reference. In the event of exhibitions being held simultaneously, you can go online to find out where and how you can attend these exhibitions in person. These online websites allow you to surf at your convenience and, after all, an online art gallery does not have a closing time.

The possibility of dealing with fake art pieces is less likely because you are dealing with artists directly and many of these artists have their own websites where they exhibit their work. Because of the advantages posed by the Internet, auction houses have their online galleries with artworks of renowned artists. Throughout the world, a large number of people visit these galleries every day, giving artists more exposure and making it possible for artists to be contacted by prospective buyers on an international level. Online galleries are also optimized so that search engines can locate the artists and exhibits without difficulty.

When a deal is finalized, artworks are usually delivered directly to buyers through different forms of delivery services. Due to the reputability of selected art websites, art lovers deal with them regularly. As a safety measure, proof that it is the artist’s original work is also provided on completion of sale.

Assisted Reproduction Technology In India

Assisted Reproduction Technology of technique is any technological procedure that helps infertile couples to conceive. As per the cause of infertility, our doctors will recommend and perform suitable ART programs.

The actual ART cycle consists of the folllowing procedures : –

  • Controlled Ovarian Stimulation
  • Monitoring
  • Oocyte Retrieval
  • Laboratory Procedure
  • Embryo Transfer
  • Cryopreservation

1)  Controlled Ovarian Stimulation

The aim of this step is to achieve a higher rate of pregnancy for which the woman’s menstrual cycle is administered. Usually, a woman produces one mature egg during her menstrual cycle. In ART, we aim at initiating the production of several eggs so that several embryos are produced….

2)  Monitoring

The administration of gonadotrophins results in the formation of multiple bags of water in the ovaries, called follicle. Each follicle has within itself, an egg or oocyte. The number and size of the follicles is monitored with the help of serial Vaginal sonography and Estradiol hormone estimation….

3)  The Oocyte Retrieval

The oocyte retrieval is done 35 to 37 hours after the maturation injection of HCG. This is a day care outpatient procedure. It may be carried out either under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. We prefer to do it under short general anesthesia, using the latest probofol anesthesia, which has minimal side effects….

4)  The Laboratory Procedure

The sperm retrieval : –

Normally, the semen is collected by masturbation 1-2 hours after egg collection…

Semen Production : –

In case the husband has previous history of difficulty in producing semen, we ask him to produce the semen a few days earlier and freeze it, for subsequent use….

Procedures for Semen Retrieval : –

When all of the above methods fail, the patient will be anesthetized for a procedure of electro-ejaculation…

Fertilization : –

The eggs, which are retrieved by aspiration, are then washed with special culture media and kept in incubators. Similarly, the sperms that are obtained are washed with culture media, with the standard swim up method…

 

5)  Embryo Transfer

This is one of the most important steps. The transfer of the selected cleaved embryos is performed 48 hours after the initial egg collection…

 

6)  Cryopreservation

Suitable embryos not utilised during the transfer may be cryo-preserved (frozen) for use in another treatment cycle, if desired. These embryos are mixed with special media called cryprotectant. The embryos are loaded into straws, which are then sealed and placed in a special machine called an-Freezer…

Retailers seem to think that this new craze is womens way of beautifying their hands and fingers much like they would have done with diamonds in times gone by. Only now, it is deemed so much safer in that their chances of getting robbed is very slim in comparison.

History of Nail Art

If you think about it, you will see that nails beautification was a lot less glamorous before 1920 as an abrasive powder was being used to help your nails to shine while various types of stains were used to add colour to it.

Then, Charles Revson became everyone’s favourite as he developed the very first opaque nail polish back in 1930, which in turn gave birth to the well known Revlon cosmetic range.

Nowadays, women prefer something more unique such as nail art. More than ever before, women are looking for the next best thing with regards to nail art.
