Painting for dummies - fun and easy about great artists
The history of art is a section of art history that studies the development of arts from the time of their inception to the present day. The first work on the history of art - "Biographies of the most famous painters, sculptors and architects" for the authorship of Giorgio Vasari - saw the light in the Renaissance, in 1550. It was followed by Karel van Mander's The Book of Artists and Joachim Zandrart's Deutsche Akademie. In the Enlightenment, Winkelmann criticized the concentration on the biographical details of life of certain artists and began to make meaningful generalizations about the trends in the development of art in different periods. Some works on the history of art (as, for example, the works of John Ruskin) are in themselves of interest as outstanding literary works.
Remembering a few simple points, in a company not too close to the fine arts, you can be known as a connoisseur in general.
Long ago, in the first year yet, we had a history of arts. Lectures were held on Saturday at 8 am and with five "teachers" stood at the door, and then closed it to the castle. And that's all. Did not have time - pass. Throughout the year he showed us slides of paintings, ranging from rock art and ending with Russian artists of the 90s. And all these slides were in his cards. Here's a pack. And at the end of the year, as usual, the exam. First two questions, and then execution on an individual basis. By the number of your passes for a year (!), He took out postcards from a pack. Vbazboy. And I had to say the author or the name. Mona Lisa and a couple more remembered quickly. And with the rest of the mulen we need to do something. And so, to guess the author, we in the group derived a classification. And you know, in 97 cases out of a hundred - it works! Still!
If you see in the picture a dark background and all the suffering on your faces - this is Titian .
The exception - this is a golopopaya person without signs of thought on his face. You can remember one thing. Venus , not Venus, but there is something venereal in it
If in the picture there are tactful priests and cellulite even among the peasants , do not hesitate - this is Rubens .
If in the picture the peasants are similar to the curly-haired women or simply Italian gigolo - this is Caravaggio .
He drew women a half times. The next picture is a woman. Gorgonyan Meduza Arutyunovna . Why she looks like Johnny Depp - the riddle is cleaner than the smile of Mona Lisa.
If the picture is a lot of little people - Bruegel .
Many little people + little incomprehensible garbage - Bosch .
If all people look like homeless people by the light of a dim lamp - this is Rembrandt .
If you can easily paint a picture of a couple of fat-cheek cupids and lambs (or they are already there) - this is Bushe .
Beautiful, all naked and figures like bodybuilders after drying - Michelangelo .
You see the ballerina - you speak Degas . You say Degas - you see the ballerina.
Contrastingly, a bit too bluish , and bluish , and all have skinny, bearded faces - El Greco .
And, finally, if everyone, even aunts, looks like Putin - this is Jan van Eyck .
PS : Monet - spots, Mane - people.
