Art for Persuasion This is an example of art for persuasion. The poster is attempting to influence and impose an opinion on the viewer. This propaganda poster was used to persuade people to join the communist party. The poster targets issues which at the time where hot topics in society. It uses this issues to support its cause and instill confidence in the viewer that the communist party is the right party to side with. The subjects in the poster are quite diverse, in an attempt to connect with a diverse group of people. Doing so may persuade more people to join the communist party.
Art for delight. This outside wall of a children's museum is a great example of art for delight. The colorful tiles connect to form sentences in which tell a story that refers to children songs. The songs are both traditional and current. According to the description the intent of this art is to show that time is connected through children and that this museum is connected to the world. To me there is no greater joy in the world than children. If the outside of this museum is this colorful and fun, I could only imagine what the inside of the museum is like.
Art in worship and ritual. This painting clearly is a means of enhancing religious contemplation. It was displayed as part of the main altarpiece of the church Sant Pere de Cubells. It was part of a group of paintings that functioned as an aid to religious teaching. This painting teaches about the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. The painting is part of a collection in which teaches of the life of Saint Peter. The typological features and the high quality made this painting to be considered a very significant piece for the time period.
Art as commentary For the this I picked an artists depiction of the fair of Saint George’s day. This holiday was normally celebrated on the 23 of April which was the day that Saint George died. Today this calendar date would fall on the 6th of may according to the Gregorian calendar. This is a clear visual account of what the artist witnessed on that Saint George’s day. It is also providing a lot of information about the visual appearance of the event. There is a lot going on in the print, but it is clearly portraying what happened on that day. What I would really like to know is what is going on at the windmill.
Art for commemoration. This bust of King Frederick V is an example of art done as an aid to memory. It also serves as a way to pay respect for the mighty King. The patrons that ordered the making of this sculpture wanted the very best in order to further the glory of the king. The bust does a wonderful job of doing just that. From the bust you can tell the high stature of the man. It also shows that this man did not just sit in a chair and rule. The armor that he is wearing tells us that he also the official head of the military. All this helps us remember the man that was King Frederick.
Art as Self-Expression I found this self-portrait super interesting. It is really two mediums in one. The head is an etching in a coper plate that was transferred to the paper. This etching was Rembrandt’s signature it was not like other artist engraving. His etchings were also responsible for his fame. Which is why a self-portrait in the medium of etching is perfect for him. The rest is a black chalk sketch which was added three years later. This portrait has so much going for it. The complexity of the head and the simplicity of the body, really make me wonder and think of what this man was like.
