This requires professional graphic design talent. From the project studied in the article Bennett shows how design can still have a positive function in society. It is not merely to sell product, but can be used to sell a message as well. The "then" design sold certain messages about the direction of society; this "now" design serves the same function. The AIDS posters therefore represent an evolution in the role of design, where modern selling principles are incorporated into historical socio-political messages to sell ideas, such as…… [Read More].

His father was a stonemason, and the young Mies underwent training under him, after which, at the age of nineteen, he moved on to erlin.

At the age of twenty, Mies van der Rohe was good enough to receive his own first independent commission to build a house for the famous philosopher, Alois Riehl. John La Farge is often referred to as one of the most "innovative and versatile American artists of the nineteenth century" and "the most versatile American artist of his time," a true Renaissance spirit that was not afraid to experiment in different areas of paintings and with different techniques.

One look at works such as "The Great Statue of Amida uddha at Kamakura, Known as the Daibutsu, from the Priest's Garden," painted during his trip to Japan, will gives us the impression of a personality that transcended boundaries, approached new cultures and civilizations and remained an icon for art in the 19th century.

In , he benefited from a trip to France, where he familiarized himself with the most notable artists in art history. Visiting the…… [Read More]. History of Modern Design.

In the magazine they founded De Stijl , they first displayed their paintings, sculpture, and architectural design. They were eager that their new aesthetic conceptions should embrace everything from city panning to applied arts and philosophy.

The main ideas around which they worked based closely on Mondrian's theory of Neo-Plasticism highlighted simplicity of line, form and color. Straight lines, primarly colors, and reduced forms were emphasized. Art was viewed as a collective project, and therefore the romantic conceptions of the "personal" artwork were downplayed in favor of a more impersonal approach.

It will be seen that the De Stijl ideas had a major influencce on the Bauhaus style in Germany. Look for information on the context found most relevant to the artwork I think which should be biographical. Consider how a visual description and an analysis of the work, using Elements of Art and Principles f design supports discussion of context. The Artist and his style of painting enri de Toulouse-Lautrec 24 November -- 9 September , a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator, was a colleague of Cezanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin, and was one of the great artists of the Post-Impressionist period.

The Coal and Steel Community were also built with a firmer incentive to improve political stance as oppoed to the economic goals: The treaty creating the ECU Economic Community was more motivated towards the achievement of the economic objectives, on the other hand, but had strong political stance as well.

The rational logic of Le Corbusier's designs also led many critics to accuse his architecture of being too 'cold' and having little 'humanity' about them. His rationalism is the aspect through which Le Corbusier has most often been introduced to the public. For a large number of his critics, 9 sympathetic or otherwise, he remains the theoretician who perfected a rigorous system and whose works are subjected to a cold, standardizing logic and an uncompromising functionalism.

Choay 14 However, for Corbusier there was a sense in which a revolution in the arts and architecture had began in the early years of the twentieth century. So began Le Corbusier's first article. In rapid order, this new spirit…… [Read More]. Stravinsky fountain is near the George Pompidou Centre, called the most Avante Garde building in the world. The Pompidou Centre is named after Georges Pompidou, a French president who hoped that Paris would have a center so that people could join together and admire all types of art, including sculptures.

The Centre was created in It is located just over the center's music department. The fountain is a humorous and whimsical depiction of Stravinsky's compositions. In all, 16 sculptures make up the fountain. The fountain represents Stravinsky's work and composition style. Some of his work was represented by his mentor, Rimsky-Korsakov. His music was traditionally very straightforward and to the point. Some of tones were dull.

A classification of his…… [Read More]. Waste Land French Lieutenant the. The Subjective over the Objective Modernism was a reaction against Realism and its focus on objective depiction of life as it was actually lived. Modernist writers derived little artistic pleasure from describing the concrete details of the material world and the various human doings in it. They derived only a little more pleasure from describing the thoughts of those humans inhabiting the material world.

Their greatest pleasure, however, was in expressing the angst, confusion, and frustration of the individual who has to live in that world. Modernist writers used novel means for expressing these newly intense emotions. They did not always express the individual's confusion and frustration by relating the inner discourse of the individual.

Instead, they manipulated the structure, style, and content of their works to cultivate a certain effect on the reader. They wanted to convey the experience…… [Read More]. Emotional Drivers Swarovski The motives behind consumer decisions to purchase luxury brands like Swarovski have been studied in a number of researches.

The general findings of these studies have been that these motives are largely emotional, and that they are evolving as the composition of the luxury market segment changes. De Mooij defines emotion as an "interaction between cognition and physiology. The mode of expression of emotion also varies by culture. In capitalistic societies, consumption has evolved into a unique mode of expression of self-satisfaction, self-esteem and self-pleasures. These buying motives shape the perceptions of various brands among consumers, along with brand loyalty and brand image.

De Mooij , p. Williamsburg as Our Region With. Larry Tee, for instance, an inhabitant who started the Berliniamsburg club in Williamsburg, which is credited with popularizing Electroclash, one of the neighborhood's best-known cultural exports explained that: Now it's become designated as a safe space for nice people who have boring 9 to 5 jobs.

Artists used to love the grittiness of Williamsburg. Youth used to revel in its charm and trendy flavor. Now deep-pocketed developers are starting to develop the city and Williamsburg, as it was then, is starting to close aside from the fact that the different communities are moving further apart rather than closer together. Urban Golf could be sustainable by attracting diverse people into the area and turning the residence into a useful place.

The Urban Golf concept has helped diverse social groups meet…… [Read More]. School for Scandal Title How. The lack of self-respect in particular characters in the play, like Lady Sneerwell and Joseph, sends the message that some people have higher priorities than self-respect.

Lady Sneerwell's deep desire to gain Charles to marry her leads her to a chain of unrespectable acts of intrigues and backbiting, in the process, conspiring with equally dubious characters like Joseph and Snake who also follow selfish and destructive agendas of their own. Forming a derogatory School for Scandal all alone speaks against self-respect as against all of those perpetuating that School. While it seems outwardly pleasurable to prey on other people's mistakes, misfortunes and weaknesses, perpetrators of scandals and hypocrisy do not gain the superiority they want among themselves.

Lady Sneerwell, Sir and Lady ackbite, Mrs. Candour and Joseph may share a common objective of destroying relationships and reputation but this destructiveness does not build them up in the real sense, but…… [Read More]. Organizational Health Educational institutions generally approach organizational improvement by addressing the performance standards to which students, educators, and administrators are held.

The standards movement has been a dominant theme in educational policy arenas and in the public eye. With roots in the s Cold War mentality, the thrust of educational improvement has been prodded by perceptions of international industrial and scientific competition. If the rigor of educational standards in the nation -- according to the logic of this argument -- falls below that of other countries, our economy will falter and the balance of trade will be compromised, perhaps beyond the point of recovery.

Fears for the future of the country and our citizens run deep; these fears propel a course of action that is not particularly based on rational thinking and lacks a base of evidence. The course of action adopted by educational policy makers and educational leaders in…… [Read More].

English Literature the Great Gatsby. Great Gatsby Hamlett F. It explores multiple themes about the human condition as experienced through the actions of the story's lead character, Jay Gatsby, and the narrator, Nick Carraway. I have selected three such themes from the book as the basis for this paper. Each of them revolves around Fitzgerald's core assessment of class differences that existed between the have's and the have not's in the society of excess and indulgence which emerged after America's participation in World War I.

The first theme I will examine relates to the promise, pursuit and subsequent failure of the American dream; specifically, the expectation that the acquisition of enough money can buy one's way into all of the right circles and hearts.

The second theme is that of the superficiality of the upper classes and how their worth as…… [Read More]. Vanity and Unethical Action of a Human Being. Tono-Bungay diverges from the author's more popular science fiction Costa Tono-Bungay is ripe with social commentary, and many literary critics have gone so far as to describe the novel as a "galvanic fictional chronicle of the intellectual and moral history of England at the close of the 19th century," Costa Indeed, ells does capture prevailing trends in political, economic, and social thought, as well as currents in English history.

A preoccupation with issues related to social class status and capitalism permeate the Edwardian novel. Although ells deftly refrains from overtly didactic or pedantic moralizing, Tono-Bungay cannot be understood without reference to the author's message related to ethical egoism, vanity, and human behavior within a capitalist system. One of the overarching themes of Tono-Bungay is upward social mobility, and the ethical tradeoffs taken to achieve a boost in social status. George's upward social mobility takes place on a weak…… [Read More].

Luxury the Consumer Describe Briefly. Today's consumers act more en masse rather than as individuals, and so, marketing must show them why the "must" have the newest trendy items, or why they have to continue to need those items.

Consumers still have personal choices, but they tend to shop for what is "hot" right now and making an item or service hot is what marketing is becoming.

Today, people value things not for what they do, but what they say about them as consumers, and how they show they have "taste" and "class. Consumers are bound by expense today, and it is no wonder quality is becoming a thing of the past - perhaps it will end up being the real "luxury" in our consumerist society. The democratization of luxury. Luxury the Concept of Luxury. If just about anyone but the poorest people in America can afford what once were considered luxuries, what is there left to aspire to or hope for?

The author's concept of wealth states that people acquire desirable objects to illustrate their superiority over those who cannot afford them, and their meshing with the wealthy and powerful who can. So, many luxuries are acquired as status symbols that say, "look what I can do" rather than for necessity or even personal pleasure. I don't know if I agree with the author's conclusion that this need to acquire luxury goods could ultimately be good for the globe, and bring people closer together.

This seems to simplistic to me, and too glib. He notes that many of the world's underprivileged will ever see this consumerism, and to me, it sometimes seems wasteful and unnecessary in the light of so many other important issues…… [Read More]. Thames and Hudson, His Life and Art.

His paintings have often been described as drawings in colored paint; his paint was applied in long thin brushstrokes with much of the canvass showing through.

The image painted in tempera or casein with oil is of a young woman sitting in a chair that appears to me to be draped with a white furry blanket. We see her from behind, and this viewpoint emphasizes her submissiveness and the spectator's control over subject. A part of her left breast is exposed. It could mean that she's a nude model and she's on the set of the shoot, that she's a prostitute resting from a long day at work and Lautrec, indeed, became acquainted with one of his famous prostitutes around this time, a woman in Montmartre called Marie-Charlotte Milner, or it could be her way of relaxing.

The row of green small round tables and chairs further indicate that she may be a prostitute and that this may be a brothel since the setting seems less of a home and. References Begg, Iain et al.

Works Cited Costa, Richard Hauer. Review of New Studies. As to the rest of the exposition, Wilson wrote that visitors to Paris in came away "numbed, overloaded with formation" because the exposition appeared to be like a "giant department store of both goods and ideas" p. Not every critic agreed with Barthes, however. Patrick Young writes in the journal the History Teacher May, that Gustave Eiffel's story "lattice tower" became two things at the moment of its construction which was timed to coincide with the exposition ; one, it was the world's tallest structure at its debut; and two, it took on "iconic status as a marker of French national prestige.

The Times' writer enthuses that the French can "boast that" every nation worldwide "save Austria and Germany" will be represented there in some fashion. The writer went on to remind readers that "some untoward political accident" could occur to prevent all nations from participating, and that untoward political event did indeed take place as England also declined the invitation to attend. Among the big international news stories that came out of the exhibition -- in addition to the technology and the enormous exhibit of paintings from all over the world -- was the Eiffel Tower, which in fact was somewhat controversial at that time because it was so stark, tall, and contrasted so sharply with the city of Paris.

The writer for the New York Times "C. The Eiffel Tower wasn't the only controversy at the exhibit. In hindsight, Albert Boime explains, there were blatantly racist depictions of cultures from various parts of the world.

Writing in the book Paris American Artists at the Universal Exposition, the late professor Boime explained that the cultural "habitations" and the "primitive arts and curios" of minority peoples were measured "against the colossal technological advances of the whites" p.

The essay by Boime asserted that the "hierarchical structure" of whites as the dominate world culture was intentionally designed to "discriminate against selected classes…and ethnic minorities [were] represented among them. In Paris colonialized people were "degraded… in favor of the triumphant civilization embodied in the Beaux-Arts style" p.

What is not perhaps well-known about the Paris Fair of is that it was boycotted by the monarchies in England and Germany; the grounds for the boycotts was that the fair "celebrated the overthrow of monarchy. The essayist called the prime minister's rhetoric "lip service" towards fairness for working people, when in fact France was very deep into a spirit of nationalism but indeed it needed the loyalty of "the underclasses," Boime wrote.

Notwithstanding the rhetoric about the "love of labor" that the French put forward, Boime wrote that there was "remarkably little evidence of this concern in the subjects of the art works displayed" by France and the U. The "predictable scenes of peasant and fishing activities" were there, Boime continued [more on peasant-themed art will be presented later in this paper] but there was "scant attention paid to the laboring class. In the painting the chimney sweep is surrounded by "astonished bathers…some gaze in horror at this strange creature while others double over in laughter" a photo of the painting is printed on p.

And while one reviewer thought that the chimney sweep was actually sharing in the laughter directed at him because his white teeth are contrasted sharply with his blackened face, Boime disagreed. To the contrary, Boime asserts that the Intruder was actually a scene of "alienation and oppression" that "encodes the upper-class ideal of workers excluded from the cultural and social edifice constructed by their labor happily accepting…" their station in life p.

Meanwhile, the substantial contribution that American artists made at the Universal Exposition of in Paris was surprising to the critics, according to D. Dodge Thompson Thompson, , p. The critics were in awe of the "variety of temperaments" presented and "the diversity of the pictures. In fact, the writer for the New York Times who was present, Harold Frederic, complained that his job as a reporter "was not unlike the task of an amateur turned loose in a picture dealer's attic" p.

One hundred and eighty nine American artists brought a total of paintings to the exhibit, and a reviewer from the Atlantic Monthly commented on the variety of style represented in the Americans' work: One would like to say, 'My brethren, be not many masters," but the difficulty is rather that there are too many pupils" Owen Wister.

Art Nouveau When one considers the term “Art Nouveau,” what comes to mind most immediately is “images of a European-wide invasion [characterized] by the restless dynamism of organic form”(Silverman 1). For some, Art Nouveau was the last unified style; for others, it was not one style, but many. As with all art movements up until the late 20th century, it was dominated by men.
