Topic: Write essay artist
June 24, 2019 / By Ardon Question:
in grade 12 i had an essay on art movements
i wrote about how each art period demonstrated a rejection of the previous movement- which was the result of shifting in political powers which sought to "forget" the previous monarchy and it's ideals. Ex. Renaissance - individualism and enlightenment. humanity was seen as morally good. during this time there was a shift away from the church's influence. Baroque - church came into power again with a new monarch in place and artist were commissioned to spread fear of authority and judgement with their art. Humanity was seen as morally flawed. Rococo - with Louis in reign, art began to express leisure and frivolous experience. Besides the role of art in society in each shift, the artist style had also shifted in opposite contrast of the previous art movement's style.
My grade 12 art teacher told me my essay's concept was absurd and wrong and ridiculous and so did another art teacher i asked for advice from.
In high school i got a 50 on my essay because i decided to go through with the idea. But now i am in university and this idea -- we went over it in a lecture! What i theorized in my essay, my professor talked about in a class! I wasn't wrong!
