  • Raphael - 683 words
    Raphael was an Italian Renaissance painter who is considered one of the greatest and most popular artists of all time. He was born Raffaello Santi or Raffaello Sanzio in Urbino on April 6, 1483. He received his early training in art from his father, the painter, Giovanni Santi. According to many art historians, he also studied with Timoteo Viti at Urbino, executing under his influence a number of works of miniaturelike delicacy and poetic atmosphere, including Apollo and Marsyas and The Knight's Dream. In 1499 he went to Perugia, in Umbria, and became a student and assistant of the painter Perugino. Raphael imitated his master closely; their paintings of this period are executed in styles so ...

  • Raphael, The Renaissance, And The Re-birth Of Italy - 981 words
    The "rebirth" of art in Italy, otherwise known as the Renaissance, was connected with the rediscovery of ancient philosophy, literature, and science and the development of methods in these fields using keen observation. Greater awareness of classical knowledge created a new way to learn by direct study of the natural world. Because of this, religious themes became increasingly important to artists, and with the large interest in the Middle Ages came a new idea for subjects drawn from Greek and Roman history and mythology. The models provided by ancient buildings and works of art also inspired the development of new artistic techniques and the desire to recreate the forms and styles of classi ...

  • Raphael, The Renaissance, And The Re-birth Of Italy - 1,010 words
    ... nusually harsh. This style marked the beginning of Raphaels struggle with an area of Renaissance art in which he wasnt very interested. In 1508 Raphael went to Rome. It is to be believed that he made the move because of the great architect Donato Bramente, a distant relative and old resident of Urbino. It was Bramente who introduced him to Pope Julius II. 1509 gave him, along with a number of artists, given the opportunity of decorating a suite of private rooms in the Vatican. Julius II had an excellent eye for talent, and soon after he saw Raphaels work he dismissed the other painters and the job was directly given to Raphael. In his work there, Raphael firmly established his name along ...

Leonardo's drawings did not only clarify the appearance of bones, tendons, and other body parts but their function in addition. These drawings are considered to be the first accurate representations of human anatomy. Leonardo is also credited with the first use of the cross section, a popular technique for diagramming the human body. Leonardo wrote, "The painter who has acquired a knowledge of the nature of the sinews, muscles, and tendons will know exactly in the movement of any limb how many and which of the sinews are the cause of it, and which muscle by its swelling is t ...

  • Picassos Les Desmoiselles Davignon - 1,414 words
    Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality." They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

  • Nicolas Poussin And Roman Influences - 1,405 words
    Nicolas Poussin and Roman Influences in France The city and art of Rome had an enormous impact on the French Baroque Classical artist Nicolas Poussin and through him an effect on French art and artists in the following centuries. Poussin was greatly influenced by the classical ideals of Italian art and flourished in the art-loving city of Rome that encouraged a young artist to explore his abilities. Nicolas Poussin spent a most of his productive artistic career in Rome and over half of his life in the ancient city. Though Poussin was a known, practicing artist before he spent any time in Rome, it has been said that his successful artistic career actually began with his arrival in the city. W ...

  • Titian - 1,104 words
    No one knows exactly when the Italian artist, Tiziano Vecellio, was born. Over the centuries, there has been a great deal of confusion concerning the date, due to a misprint in his biography by sixteenth century art historian, Girgio Vasari. Vasari recorded the date as 1480, but the progress of Tiziano Vecellios work, as well as other documented sources, announce his date of birth to be sometime between 1488 and 1490. (Magill 2310) The place of his birth was Pieve de Cadore, in the Alps north of Venice. Tiziano Vecellio, also known as Titian, was a great master of religious art, a portraitist, and the creator of mythological compositions, which have been so decorative and inventive that no o ...

  • Michelengelo - 1,867 words
    The Italian Michelangelo Buonarotti, almost certainly the most famous artist produced by Western civilization and arguably the greatest, is universally viewed as the supreme Renaissance artist (see Renaissance art and architecture). He created monumental works of painting, sculpture, and architecture and left an additional legacy of numerous letters and poems. Through this vast and multifaceted body of artistic achievement, Michelangelo made an indelible imprint on the Western imagination. A member of an old and distinguished Florentine family, Michelangelo was born near Arezzo, Italy, on Mar. 6, 1475, and he died on Feb. 18, 1564, in Rome--a record of longevity that was as unusual as his pr ...

    *note* this paper sucks-I wrote it 1 hour before I had to hand it in. Use w/ caution. In John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost , the issue of who is to blame fall of man is one that for the most part can be interpreted from a reading of book IX. Based on the text, Eve played a larger role in the to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and Adam's more passive in that he simply followed the wishes of Eve. When sorted out later in the story, it becomes clear that Adam and Eve were After an extended visit from the angel Raphael at which time he explained in great detail to Adam the dangers of falling into temptation disobeying God's will, Adam is faced with a problem.

    -Situations that have blocked adams free will- Written during the 17th century, John Milton's "Paradise Lost" describes the fall of man in a poetic lyric. His book closely details the character God, Satan, and how Adam and Eve came do their downfall. God's first human creation, Adam, was given all luscious gifts of paradise, including free will. The Tree Of Knowledge was Adam and Eve's only forbiddance. Once they ate of the tree, their pureness would vanish. Eve was Adams partner, soul mate, and wife. Made from a rib of Adam, Eve was of him, part of him and belonged to him. She knew no other knowledge other than what was taught and told through Adam. On the day she was created, Fragile and s ...

  • Are We Heading For Disaster - 1,167 words
    Here we are in 1999 in a world that is booming with technological advances. One would have to ask, "How did we come so far in such a short amount of time?" It seems as though it was only yesterday that we were traveling by horse and buggy. Now we travel by bullet trains, airplanes, and rockets. Seeing the arts and humanities in everything we did years ago was much easier, because technology didn't seem to advance at the rapid pace it does today. Is that why so many people fail to realize the importance of it as we soar into the millennium? I believe that if one dives deep enough into anything created today, they would be bound to find traces of the past. Arts and Humanities are more than jus ...

  • John Miltons Satan - 1,243 words
    People argue about who the hero is of Paradise Lost: Satan, Adam or Christ, the Son? Since Milton's overall theme stated in the opening lines of Book I is to relate 'Man's first disobedience' and to 'justify the ways of God to men', I think Adam must be regarded as the main hero. John M. Steadman supports this view in an essay on Paradise Lost. "It is Adam's action which constitutes the argument of the epic." Steadman continues that "the Son and Satan embody heroic archetypes and that, through the interplay of the infernal and celestial strategies, Milton represents Satan's plot against man and Christ's resolution to save him as heroic enterprises. Christ and Satan are therefore epic machine ...

Stanley Fish in his essay 'The harassed reader in Paradise Lost'' states that Satan possesses a form of heroism which is easy to admire because it is visible and flamboyant and that, on that basis, Satan's attractiveness is only initial (Fish 189-90). B Rajan, on the other hand, writes: 'the heroic qualities which Satan brings to his mission, the fortitude, the steadfast hate, the implacable resolution which is founded on despair are qualities not to be imitated or admired. They are defiled by the evil to which they are consecrated' (Rajan 190). Nonetheless, it is often Satan's despair, which comes through more potently than his evil in ...

  • Love And Lust In Paradise Lost - 1,103 words
    In Milton's Paradise Lost, sexuality is an innate part of human nature. Milton celebrates Adam and Eve's prelapsarian "connubial love" (PL, IV, 743), singing "Hail wedded Love" (PL, IV, 750). In its proper place in the hierarchy (below God), sex in Milton's view is sacred and spiritual, sanctioned by God. Sacred sex is portrayed almost as an intellectual act rather than a physical act, as a union of souls rather than a union of bodies. In contrast, however, lascivious sex is associated with bestial imagery and tortured sleep. It is the abdication of God for physical pleasure that Milton condemns. By contrasting Adam and Eve's "pure" love before the Fall to their enflamed "carnal desire" (PL, ...

  • Paradise Lost - 781 words
    Satan as HumanFools as Godly Miltons Paradise Lost is one of the most unique works from the Renaissance period. Bringing a fresh perspective to the Satan/God conflict that until the time of its authorship, had not been represented, that is, the perspective of Satan himself. Satan is presented as a bit of a fool, reacting more as a human being, which provides a comic element of identity in the rebellion against "Heaven." However, it suggests the operation of the weak or suggestive side of humans that is not "angelic" (i.e. the flesh is willing, but the spirit is weak.) Humans who are less godly than angels are fools. At the same time, fools who are Godly are Sons of God, who in the Earthly re ...

Smith distinguishes several stages of social development culminating in "commercial civilisation", a state of considerable and growing national "wealth" (well-being). The wealth of a nation consists in the well-being of the mass of ordinary citizens: in commercial nations wealth is well-diffused, according to Smith. However, he does not see everything in commercial civilisation in rose colour: keep an eye out for his critical comments. The underlying cause of the development of human society from the hunting to th ...
