Need help with my writing homework on Art class. Write a 1500 word paper answering; In this case, the scene after crucifixion has been shown. Since there are accounts of Mary lamenting the loss of Jesus, she has been shown to be in grief while Jesus, has not been typically depicted passionate. His face is rather calm and creates a dialogue between him and God. The sculpture has been carved out of a block of marble probably using a ‘chisel’ as Michelangelo once stated. David (1501-1504): Where Pieta gained the unknown and young, Michelangelo, introduction as a promising artist, David led him to be recognized more than ever before. Inspired from the Biblical account of David beating the giant Goliath, Michelangelo came up with a never seen before form of the story. His David stood different from all versions of the story carved before. This time round, Goliath was not shown but only David stood tall and handsome with a sling hung over his shoulder. The statue was carved out of marble and is around 17 feet tall. It was common during renaissance to revive the classical form of art and induce it into the society. Michelangelo successfully achieved this by making David a nude, muscular and beautiful young male. The statue now stands in the city of Florence and many replicas of it have been created all around the globe. Sistine Chapel Ceiling (1508-1512): Alongside being a renowned sculptor, Michelangelo was also a brilliant painter. One of his most famous and remarkable works is the Sistine Chapel Ceiling that he did along with four other, highly renowned artists of the High Renaissance period. These included Botticelli, Raphael, Perugino and Ghirlandaio. Michelangelo’s part included around three hundred figures and they took four year to complete. The image of God however was completed in a single day. The most popular part of the Michelangelo’s part is the iconic imagery of Adam being given life by God. Being a fresco, the painting was done on wet plaster, applied to the ceiling as it continued. Being a Renaissance painting, it is entirely based on religious contexts. Martyrdom of St Peter (1546-1550): Martyrdom of Saint Peter, also known as ‘The Crucifixion of Saint Peter’ was the last fresco that Michelangelo painted. It is a good example of renaissance art as it carries a religious theme and well depicts foreshortening, the use of chiaroscuro and atmospheric and linear perspective. Chiaroscuro is a technique in which paint is applied in varying tones to show variation in light. Renaissance artists used this technique greatly to show three-dimensionality in their work. Foreshortening further provides the painting with three-dimensionality whereby linear and atmospheric perspectives come in to not only make it three-dimensional but also give it a more realistic look. Since it is a fresco, the method used for the painting is based on the application of paint on wet plaster and that of plaster as the painting continues. 20th Century: As for the 20th century, the artist that I have selected is Paul Jackson Pollock. He played a significant role in the Impressionist movement of the time and played a leading role. The Key (1946): “When I am in a painting, I’m not aware of what I’m doing. It is only after a sort of ‘get acquainted’ period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc, because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.
