Life of Famed Painter Vincent Term Paper


He loved the area and chose a life of poverty instead of returning home. For more than a year he lived from day-to-day trying to survive.

One day Vincent felt compelled to visit the home of Jules Breton, a French painter he greatly admired, so with only ten francs in his pocket he walked the entire 70 kilometers to Courrieres, France, to see Breton. Upon arriving, however, Vincent was too timid to knock and returned to Cuesmes utterly discouraged (Van Gogh ("

It was at that point, with no money and no prospects that Van Gogh turned to art as an outlet. He began drawing the coal miners and their families.

With no money and no hope of a prosperous future it would seem…. [read more]

Vincent Van Gogh's Artwork Term Paper

… Letters to Brother

During Vincent's life he wrote more than 700 letters to his brother Theo. These letters are often considered an "illuminating record" of the artist's life, pain and mental states (MCS, 2005). Through these letters van Gogh describes his more than 750 paintings and 1600 drawings. Holroyd-Reece & Meier-Graefe (1933) suggests that Vincent "Longed for intercourse with people in similar circumstances to himself ... he believed there were such" (p. 28). This longing to be with like-minded people is but one element of his many letters to his brother Theo. It is well-known that Theo sacrificed much of his own "spiritual happiness" to provide for and serve his brother (Holroyd-Reece & Meier-Graefe, 1933).

Vincent became popular only after his death because people found…. [read more]

In Search of Illumination: An Analysis of the Life and Work of Vincent Van Gogh

If, as Richard Williamson (2010) says, art is a skill and that skill is the "expression of the soul," Vincent Van Gogh's artistic productivity (leaping into life in the final decade of his own) may tell us much about the soul of the man. With an oeuvre of over 2000 works Van Gogh's artistic passion matched the intensity of his religious fervor. Religion and art were, essentially, the basis of Van Gogh's life. And the history of his life is, in a way, a history of modern Europe; in another way it is a history of the prelude to 20th century modern art; and in another way it…. [read more]

INTRODUCTION had a hard struggle with myself...."

Vincent van Gogh (Van Goh's Letters, 2009)

The Painter

The Painter" sold only one of his paintings, now worth millions of dollars, during his lifetime. "The Painter," Vincent van Gogh, frequently depicted people in hard times, Linda Yoffe (1995) notes in "Vincent, Theo, painting and self-esteem." Today, considered one of the greatest Dutch painters and draftsmen after Rembrandt, van Gogh's art significantly influenced Expressionism in modern art. Van Gogh, born in 1853, began painting seriously in 1880, Arthur Max (2004), an Associated Press writer, reports in "Van Gogh letter refers to family tragedy." Theo, van Gogh's younger brother, supported "The Painter" for much of his life.

Jesus' Christian Life, Prayer, and Teachings Dissertation

… Prayer brings redemption. Solomon averred that as soon as he asked for Wisdom, it was bestowed upon him. David, similarly, was given fortitude through the Spirit of God (Psalms 118, 131). Every martyr obtained strength to resist tyrants, and overcame dangers and death through prayer. The above are all examples of this "communication" with God in the true spirit of how Prayer was intended.

St. John Chrysostom weighs in again: "He who uses this great weapon knows not death, leaves the earth, enters heaven, and lives with God. He falls not into sin; he loses affection for the earth; he makes his abode in heaven; and begins, even in this life, to enjoy the conversation of God. How then can you disquiet…. [read more]

Art La Berceuse (Woman Rocking Term Paper

… This alteration captivates the viewer and gives the objects in the picture more form. Like Van Gogh, Cezanne created a scene where form was given priority and yet, while Van Goghs form was less definite and had few angles, the model and the frames within the picture by Cezanne are more symmetrical and suggest the initial entry of cubism into art forms. The incremental nature of Cezanne's approach was eloquently discussed by the critic Roger Fry (1989, 3): For him, as I understand his work, the ultimate synthesis of a design was never revealed in a flash; rather he approached it with infinite precautions..."

And thus emerged two artists of equal genius and yet, such different temperaments.



Claude Monet Is Widely Recognized Term Paper

… Perhaps the biggest break from classical art tradition is the lack of a smooth finish to this work. Even a cursory look at the painting would reveal the brushstrokes and dabs that Monet used to capture the scene. While critics during the time saw this as an example of a loose and undisciplined brush technique, Monet used his swift brushstrokes to capture the illusion of light and movement. As a result, in addition to seeing a woman with a parasol, a person viewing the painting also gets an impression of the floating clouds and the rustling of the grass.

Later Work

In 1883, Monet moved his family to Giverny, where he stayed for the next 43 years. He purchased a house in 1890 and began…. [read more]

Bauhaus After World War I Term Paper

… Poet and critic Vincent Katz, who wrote about the school, stressed that Rice envisioned an educational collective run by its teachers with input from the students instead of directives from a governing board. Students at the deliberately nonaccredited school took the courses they wanted and, when they felt ready to graduate, requested an examination to be administered by someone outside the college.

Black Mountain was not planned as an art school -- courses were always offered in science and mathematics -- but Rice believed the arts held a central place in a liberal arts education. The courses included painting, writing, drawing, constructions and assemblages, weaving, music, drama, architecture, photography, typography dance and design. Like the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College was a center for cultural production.…. [read more]

Jackson Pollock the World Term Paper

… Jackson Pollock



According to Anthony White, the abstract paintings of the American artist Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) "are among the highest achievements of 20th-century art," and during "an unparalleled period of creativity from the late 1940s to the early 1950s, Pollock abandoned the conventional tools and methods of the painter, putting aside brushes, artist's paint and traditional composition, and poured and flung house paint directly onto large canvases placed on the floor." This unique and startling artistic style "had an enormous impact on contemporary art" which can still be sensed even today ("Jackson Pollock: Before Blue Poles," Internet).

In order to understand and appreciate the world of Jackson Pollock and his amazing art, we must first explore the…. [read more]

Structure and Texture in the Good Soldier and Parade's End by FM Ford Term Paper

… Structure and Texture in Ford's The Good Soldier And Parade's End

As Graham Greene once wrote on the subject of Ford Madox Ford, "No one in our century except James has been more attentive to the craft of letters. He was not only a designer; he was a carpenter: you feel in his work the love of the tools and the love of the material" (Greene 1962, p. 8). In what follows, we intend to explore the ways in which Ford both designed and engineered what are perhaps his two greatest novels, the Good Soldier and Parade's End. Through a rigid analysis of both the formal and textual aspects of Ford's work, we hope to expose those qualities that contributed to Ford's development as one…. [read more]

Anthony Quinn Term Paper

… The Guns of Navarone was a big hit and Quinn's role as a Greek Colonel was superb. The following year, he played an Arab sheik in Lawrence of Arabia and critics and moviegoers hailed his performance. Once again, Quinn brought his real-life presence and exuberance for life to his role on the screen.

As the years rolled on, the 1970s brought with them a decline for Quinn, whose greatest screen moments were fading. He began to take roles in poorly made American films and even poorer international ones. His acting style was no longer in demand and his films became less and less memorable. His overacting now became a burgeoning issue. Out of the seventeen films that he made during the 1970s, only one film,…. [read more]
