“Modern western landscape painting is directly related to modern individualism”
“Modern western landscape painting” is fascinating and often very lifelike. The viewer of “modern western landscape paintings” often has the opportunity to interpret the painting individually. There are no requirements how to do it. It is exactly the same with the “modern individualism”. Each person is different than the other. Thus I totally agree with the main statement. I think there is a relation between “modern western landscaping” and “modern individualism”. This can be explained based on the paintings “The Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog” from Caspar David Friedrich and “Yosemite Valley At Sunset” from Albert Bierstadt. Both paintings are completely different, but they both give the viewer a lot of room for interpreting. Thus, the viewer is left to decide how he interpreted the picture and what he focuses. Caspar David Friedrich actually focuses something on his painting, but the meaning of it is not clearly. In general you can see man on a mountain. He is pointing with back to the viewer. He seems to be in a mountain range. Everywhere you can see mountains. There is a kind of valley but you cannot really see it because above the valley is a “sea of fog”. The fog is very conspicuous. Because of the dark colors in the front of the painting, it makes a gloomy impression. The view of the landscape is scary as well. All these high mountains and the fog reminds of scene from a horror movie. But to me this painting just seems to be powerful. The man is well dressed and does not seem like that he put much effort into the ascent. His clothes makes me suspect that he is very wealthy. He seems to be strong, if he can climb a mountain without and effort, and he seems to be wealthy. Both aspects together mean to be that this could be a powerful man. He seems to be above it all as well. He is…...

...Melting Pot The Modern Melting Pot? The Modern Melting Pot? The concept of a melting pot is the theory that anything put in will become blended and yields a result of something entirely new. This theory idealistically explains how the United States is perceived to be the Melting Pot of the World. This essay will address the concept of the modern Melting Pot and examine ways the idealistic vision of Melting Pot assimilation has been achieved through the development of American society as well as the limitations of this theory. “No, the real American has not yet arrived. He is only in the Crucible; I tell you he will be the fusion of all races perhaps the coming superman” (Zangwill n.d.). The Modern Melting Pot is a metaphor for cultural assimilation. It is the anticipation of a diverse society becoming more harmonious, where the elements of all cultures melt together to form a society that is released from animosity and cultural divisions, one with a more common culture. The term Melting Pot refers to the belief that societies in America that were formed by immigrant cultures, ethnic groups and religions will through assi...

'Modern Liberals Have Abandoned Individualism and Embraced Collectivism.' Discuss

...'Modern liberals have abandoned individualism and embraced collectivism.' Discuss the question asks to Analyze how liberalism stemmed into abandoning the two core values of individualism and collectivism. In the essay that follows it will be assessed how modern liberals evolved from their classical core beliefs. Individualism, this is the most fundamental feature of liberalism. It is the unique feature that distinguishes it from the other ideologies. Classical liberals interpret it as an individual his or her own self-awareness, personality, capabilities and free will to decide their own fate. On the other hand, Modern liberals accept the idea of individuality but made certain observations, such as; we cannot consider ourselves completely free to peruse our own interests because we also have social obligations to consider the needs and welfare of others. It can be already be seen how the attitude of the liberals change towards the individual, as at first they view each citizen as a single special individual, however now, they have a broader view of the society as they have to care for each other and not only themselves. Thomas H Green was one of the first philosophers to have a new perspective of the idea of liberalism, thus creating the foundation of modern liberalism. He believes that individuals have sympathy for one another which link to the idea of caring for one another and not only for themselves. This already highlights the......

Modern Art

...Modern Art History Modern art represents the headiest period in all of art history--a span of no more than 110 years that saw an explosion of movements from Realism, to Impressionism, to Cubism, to Abstract Expressionism to Pop and Op, with dozens of others in between and around the world. Hard-Edge Painting: Art History Basics 101 Hard-Edge Painting emphasizes the flat surface of the canvas or paper with clean, clear abstract shapes and surrounding fields of colors. These shapes and fields can be rendered in black and white or brilliant colors. The unity of the composition creates a unified presentation in the art work itself. Color Field Painting: Art History 101 Basics Color Field Painting is a branch of Abstract Expressionism that concentrates on colorful shapes and expanses of color which emphasize the literal flatness of the canvas or paper. Cubism - Art History Basics 101 An early twentieth century art movement that rebelled against Renaissance one-point perspective and illusionism through an emphasis on geometricity, simultaneity, and passage. Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque pioneered Cubism's ideas and style. Abstract Expressionism - Art History 101 Basics Abstract Expressionism or "AbEx" (a.k.a. Action Painting; a.k.a. The New York School) exploded onto the art scene after World War II with its characteristic messiness and extremely energetic applications of paint. To the contemporary audience, the whole enterprise seemed like youthful antagonism--hardly...

Different Between Eastern and Western Painting

...The difference between Eastern and Western painting At the beginning One day, I read an article in Internet. The guy insists that eastern pictures have more complicated subject and sharp expression than western pictures; however, people evaluate the eastern picture with the western standard so that eastern pictures are low-evaluated. At the moment, I find myself to know nothing about eastern painting, even though I am one of the eastern people. I have learned lots of famous western pictures since middle and high school; on the contrary, no one explained the difference point of view between eastern and western painting. I have little information about eastern picture. Thus, I decide to compare and analyze the difference of each painting at this chance. Comparison & Analysis 1. Perspective on nature Eastern – All things are regarded as a part of nature, even human in eastern picture. Most of the traditional pictures describe a landscape around us; for example, mountain, river, flowers and trees. Look at the picture 1. Even though there is a man in painting, he is not the focus but just a factor of whole nature. Western – Nature is the object to be managed by human in western picture. There exists belief that human is a center of the world and we can use nature for our purpose. According to this trend, there are lots of portraits in western traditional pictures. Look at picture 2 and 3. The most important theme of these pictures is a......

...Paper Assignment II Art and Society: Renaissance to Modern Art University of Houston Dr. Sandra Zalman Due: November 13 by midnight via turnitin on Blackboard - http://www.uh.edu/blackboard/ This paper asks you to compare two works of art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, to consider how nineteenth-century artists departed from past academic works to take interest in the new urban spaces of modernity. Go the MFAH and find the following two paintings: Berthe Morisot, The Basket Chair, 1885 (Room 222) Gustave Caillebotte, The Orange Trees, 1878 (Room 222) In your paper, you will analyze the visual relationship between modernism, class and gender, considering both the formal characteristics and subject matter of the paintings you will examine. While attending to the formal characteristics of each work, analyze the ways in which gender and class may play a role in relation to subject matter, composition, and the intended audience. How are the spaces of modernity depicted in these scenes? If the flânuer is the quintessential modern artist, but cannot be embodied by a woman, what is the role of gender in these works? How does the representation of gender factor into the aims of these artists? Construct your argument based on a visual analysis of these two paintings, paying particular attention to how the artist constructs the spaces of modernity, who is depicted and in what way, and how the viewer is, or is not, accounted for. In your a conclusion,......

Modern Diet

...Modern Diet and Metabolic Variance The objective of the research is to propose a physiological rationale for the positive correlation between alanine transaminase activity and body mass. Body weight status is determined with reference to the body mass index. Those with a BMI ranging between 18-24.99 kg/m2 are considered healthy. Individuals falling within the 25.00-29.99 kg/m2 category are classified as overweight while obesity is reserved for those reaching or exceeding a body mass index of 30 kg/m2. A well-documented example of metabolically driven weight gain exists physiologically. When females approach menarche, their bodies attempt to conserve energy via the development of adequate adipose tissue reserves. This metabolic phenomenon has also evolved to accumulate enough energy stores that in the event of conception, adequate resources would be available to sustain pregnancy It is likely that metabolic processes that drive weight gain are multiplicative, employing a variety of different pathways of energy metabolism. An earlier paper published on this topic identified the hepatic enzyme, alanine transaminase, as a strongest predictor of body mass index of all observed variables. It is possible to deduce that individuals with higher levels of the enzyme may be more efficient at alanine recycling. In these individuals, it seems likely that a greater portion of the substrate, in this case alanine, is reversibly converted back into pyruvate. This may result in a......

Have Modern Liberals Abandoned Individualism and Embraced Collectivism?

...I) -individualism is the belief in the supreme importance of the individual over any social group or collective body. For classic liberals, this is heavily associated with attempts to contract or minimise the state with a view to widen individual freedom and strengthen individual responsibility. -modern liberalism, aka '20th c lib' is a branch of liberal theory that emerged as a response to the spread of poverty ignorance and disease in the post-industrial era, stressing the importance of egoistical individualism, negative freedom, enabling state and economic management. -due to such developments, classic liberals have accused modern liberals of abandoning individualism and embracing collectivism, which is the belief that collective human endeavour is of greater moral & practical value to individual self striving and that human beings have a social core. Collectivism is commonly associated with pushing the state forward, as the state is a mechanism through which collective energies are harnessed and collective ends achieved. A) -Modern liberalism have been accused of embracing collectivism because of the extent to which which they are prepared to support government intervention in social/economic affairs via an 'enabling/interventionist state'. Classic liberals understand freedom in negative terms, believing the absence of external legal/physical constraints as a condition for autonomy, but recognise that some authority is needed via a neutral arbiter amongst egoistical......

Modern Art

...1. What is Modern Art? What does it mean to you? Though it would be difficult to decide the starting point, generally modern art movement is regarded to have started since the twentieth century. Before that, art was primarily concentrated on ‘painting,’ which carries out the role of depicting the real world. So, for instance, an artist was considered to be a good painter if his drawing had resembled an object or landscape like that of photography. With the advent of photography, however, this traditional value of a good art has radically changed. Art to reproduce the real world merely had significance any more. Thereby, art has been progressing into various directions with a focus on the essence of an object, rather than the physicality of it. Modern art has become conceptual and philosophical. Many artists express their ideas with preposterous materials and methods. Some artists do not even express an idea explicitly because they emphasize the philosophical idea and thus de-emphasize the actual act of depicting. When I go to modern art museums, I often see art pieces that seem to require very little artwork. Looking at an aluminum scrap installed in the center of the exhibition room, people say “I could do it too. I can pick up an aluminum scrap from a trash heap, and bring it here. And, people say it is art. It does not seem that difficult at all to become an artist!” This is the thought I once had, as well....

Mapping the Modern

...in examine the spaces of modernism, the city is an almost obligatory starting point’ (2011). The many new technologies that were were being invented during the early 20th Century increased the development and manufacturing of cities sevenfold. Changing cities meant changing cultures. People were living like never before. The modern city was a exceptional space for its facilitation of new forms of culture. After the second world war, the art world witnessed the styles and creative practices of European culture shift to America. American modernism like modernism in most areas of the world is a trend of thought that humans have the power to create, shape and improve their environment. Foster, .R did state ‘What distinguishes American modernism is the unifying theme of a conscious search for identity” (2003). Meaning artists and architectures searched for what it meant to be American? What would set the United States apart from Europe and the rest of the world? America’s economic and technological progress throughout the 1920’s ‘gave rise to widespread utopianism’ (Boundless, 2014). Artists drew inspiration from the forever growing industrialised landscape of the U.S., New York in particular. American artists like Georgia O’Keefe and … Stieglitz collaborated and developed various artistic assemblies, who explored a range of different techniques and ways of artistic expressiveness. Louis Lozowick was one of the most highly regarded Precisionist artists of the 1920s, and......

Modern Art

...MODERN ART The realism art movement in painting began in France in the 1850s, after the 1848 Revolution. The realist painters rejected Romanticism, which had come to dominate French literature and art, with roots in the late 18th century. The Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s. Impressionist painting characteristics include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), and ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles. Post-Impressionism (also spelled Postimpressionism) is a predominantly French art movement that developed roughly between 1886 and 1905; from the last Impressionist exhibition to the birth of Fauvism. Post-Impressionism emerged as a reaction against Impressionists’ concern for the naturalistic depiction of light and color. Due to its broad emphasis on abstract qualities or symbolic content, Post-Impressionism encompasses Neo-Impressionism, Symbolism, Cloissonism, Pont-Aven School, and Synthetism, along with some later Impressionists' work. The movement was led by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, and Georges......

Modern Revolution

...economic changes continuously present in society. Are these changes enough to bring about a modern revolution? And if so, what kind of revolution are we experiencing? In order to argue for or against the concept of a modern revolution it is important that we understand what a revolution is and look back at the impact of significant revolutions in history. When the word “revolution” is first announced, it is common to think of an uprising or revolt from tyranny and unjustness. However, there are other kinds of revolutions; the kind that bring about other types of change in the way we live. Patrick J. Howie (2011) notes that revolutions in science, technology and international politics are headline events that become unforgettable moments in history (p. 10). Although the United States was recently at war in the Middle East and there are other countries that have had rebellions stemmed from civil disobedience, I do not feel as though we can categorize the thought of a modern revolution to that of a violent or war based revolution. With all of the scientific and technological advances that have been introduced in the past decade alone, there have been significant impacts to societies all over the world. The Scientific Revolution and the Industrial Revolutions are prime examples of transformations that occurred in the absence of a formal rebellion. One of the most important developments in the western culture was the Scientific Revolution throughout the 16th and 17th......
