In my opinion, this artwork represents art of delight. Using acrylic on a canvas, this Korean artist exhibits a bright and brilliant piece of art that works to evoke something positive in the viewer. Created in 2010 and currently residing with the Korean Art Museum Association, Ji Yoon Hong created a vivid and colorful piece of art that certainly, to me, seems to represent the essence of delight.
The Lamb Defeating the Ten Kings works as artwork that represents art as commentary. The piece, created in the early 1200's by an unknown artist, represents the actual commentary of Beatus of Liébana on the Apocalypse as described through the Bible. In the art, the Lamb of God is defeating the ten kings, and at the bottom, a serpent is eating the already defeated kings. It is illustrating the beliefs of Beatus and Spain at the time. The art was made using detached leaf.
This piece of art is extremely easy to understand and appreciate in terms of its religious context. I argue that it represents art in worship and ritual. Miniature from a Missal from the 1500's depicts Jesus Christ as he dies on the cross. Created by Vincent Raymond, this piece of work is clearly depicting Raymond's devotion and worship to Jesus. The art is even scripted with things such as, "We adore you, Christ, adn we bless you," though in the original language of the art. It is a manuscript using tempera and gold on parchment.
Immediately upon viewing this art, it is clear that it some form of a portrait. Indeed, it is a self-portrait of David Alfaro Siqueiros, and to me, it represents art of self expression. From 1945, this is one among a few paintings by Siqueiros. The artist had currently been involved in the use of art as a means of artistic discovery and endeavors, and his self-portraits were just one of many things he tried. His expression and pose were mirrored after an early photograph taken of him.
Representing the Battle of Sisak, this painting observes the battle between Christian and Turkish armies in 1593. It represents art for commemoration. The painting, created by an unknown artist and currently at the National Museum of Slovenia, shows different events that led to multiple victories for the Christians. The painting was created using beaten and oil painted sheet copper and was made in 1731.
This artwork has very little information known about it, but in my opinion it represents art of persuasion. The art is an etching from German made in 1758 by Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki. It's currently among other art in the National Gallery of Art. This etching clearly depicts a poor boy in loose, tattered clothing. Despite his layers, his clothes are torn as is his hat, and he's barefoot. The toddler/child showing his navel shows that he is battered enough to be showing skin. I believe the etching is persuading the viewer of poor children's circumstances during the time.
