The painting includes a river (the St. Lawrence), a dock with a building, horses, people, a ferry crossing the river coming to the dock, a headland with boats and buildings in the distance. Large wet snowflakes fall from the overcast sky. Smoke spirals from the ferry. The picture is an impression rather than a realistic representation of a scene. Goodrich, John.

Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous artists of the 1900s, is best-known for co-founding cubism with Georges Braque. This still life incorporates the cubist aim of representing the world from multiple viewpoints. While the image initially appears to be an abstract mixture of colors and shapes, one can come to understand the image—and other Cubist works—by breaking it down and analyzing its parts.

Disorders in music and language provide another avenue to examine the resource-sharing hypothesis. Music-syntactic deficits have been observed in patients with lesions in typical language brain areas” (e.g., Patel et al., 2008; Sammler et al., 2011; but such disorders can also arise following damage to other regions, see Peretz, 1993 and Slevc et al., 2016), and in children with developmental language disorders (e.g., Jentschke et al., 2008). Language impairments have also been reported for some individuals with acquired amusia (e.g., Sarkamo et al., 2009). However, it is unclear whether individuals with developmental musical disorders exhibit deficits in both music- and language-syntactic processing. Neuburger, Susanne and Barbara Ruediger.

Through art over time, students can see how attitudes and concerns of various societies change. The most influential movements of “modern art” are (1) Impressionism; (2) Fauvism; (3) Cubism; (4) Futurism; (5) Expressionism; (6) Dada; (7) Surrealism; (8) Abstract Expressionism; and (9) Pop Art. Here is a recording of Pollock describing his way of painting. It was taken from a movie the British Broadcasting Corporation made about the artist in nineteen ninety-nine. Pitch is an aspect of a sound that we can hear, reflecting whether one musical sound, note or tone is “higher” or “lower” than another musical sound, note or tone. We can talk about the highness or lowness of pitch in the more general sense, such as the way a listener hears a piercingly high piccolo note or whistling tone as higher in pitch than a deep thump of a bass drum We also talk about pitch in the precise sense associated with musical melodies , basslines and chords Precise pitch can only be determined in sounds that have a frequency that is clear and stable enough to distinguish from noise. For example, it is much easier for listeners to discern the pitch of a single note played on a piano than to try to discern the pitch of a crash cymbal that is struck.

Scientific studies investigating the effect of music on the brains of healthy people often use Sonata in D Major for Two Pianos K448 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In fact, this piece has inspired Campbell’s The Mozart Effect. According to current literature, this sonata causes a significant increase in relative alpha band power, as well as in a median frequency of background alpha rhythm in young adults and healthy elderly people. Interestingly, during this study no significant changes were observed while listening to Beethoven’s Für Elise”. Sonata K448 is also known to improve spatial performance. A few brainwave patterns correlating to this improvement are lowered theta power in the left temporal area; increased beta range in the left temporal, the left frontal, and the right temporal regions; increased alpha power left temporally. Again, these patterns have been found to emerge while listening to this particular piece. Daveson, B.A. (2008).

Celebration of Creativity: Three Centuries of American Masterworks on Paper. 11 May – 31 August 2003. At Johns Hopkins University, a team of researchers recently came up with a way to study the neurological basis of musical exchange by watching the brain activity of jazz improvisors. In one way, they found, music is exactly like language, but in another, it’s not similar at all. Because our brains don’t discriminate between music and language structurally, we may in fact understand the structures of all forms of communication in the same way. The musicians, 11 male pianists, had to put up with a little less comfort than they’re accustomed to on the stage of a hip club. Each slid supine into an MRI machine with a custom built all-plastic keyboard on his lap and a pair of mirrors arranged overhead for him to see the keys. For 10 minutes, he was asked to jam with another musician in the room by trading fours—swapping solos every four bars of the beat—as the MRI machine recorded the sparks flying in their heads. The results took a big step toward describing the complexity of music’s relationship to language. During the improvisations, the syntactic areas of players’ brains—that is, the areas that interpret the structure of sentences—were super active, as if the two players were speaking to each other. Meanwhile, the semantic areas of their brains—the parts that process language’s meaning—totally shut down. The brain regions that respond to musical and spoken conversation overlapped, in other words, but were not entirely the same.

As an artist trying to pick up the drawing pencil again after many years, I very much enjoyed reading about Frederick McCubbin and seeing his paintings. So much talent, it leaves me speechless just looking at his work. I have to say that from the paintings you posted, my favorites are “View Near Fisherman’s Bend” and “Sheperd’s Hut”, but all of the paintings of his you posted are breathtaking. It was also very interesting to read his biography, the life behind the painter, especially to learn that he was also a baker and ended up taking over the family’s bakery business. McCubbin’s life and works greatly inspired me to grow as an artist. Thank you for writing this article. Spies, Werner. La Collection du Centre Georges Pompidou: les Chefs-d’oeuvre du MNAM.” Exh. cat.

The terms modernism and modern art are generally used to describe the succession of art movements that critics and historians have identified since the realism of Gustav Courbet and culminating in abstract art and its developments in the 1960s.

The purpose of this study was a) to determine whether improvisational music therapy can promote joint attention; b) to explore parents’ and teachers’ perspectives such as perceptions on the child’s growth, importance of music therapy in the development of the child, and underlying factors that might influence the child’s growth, through a qualitative analysis of the data. The research hypothesis was that children with autism who receive music-centered improvisational music therapy will increase expression of joint attention through actions of turning to faces, turn taking, response to joint attention and initiating joint attention.
Chelsea: With approximately 500 galleries, Chelsea is one of the most thriving art districts in New York. The Manhattan neighborhood offers a wide variety of fine art, showcasing up-and-coming artists right alongside the well-known. Disruptive behaviors such as agitation and aggression are a significant concern among elderly persons with dementia. Physical and pharmacologic restraints, commonly used to manage disruptive behaviors, are often not well tolerated by the elderly. Therefore, there is a need to explore alternative methods of managing these behaviors. Musical cognitive ability may be preserved in elderly individuals with dementia, and music intervention is a relatively simple, noninvasive, and inexpensive intervention for disruptive behaviors. This article will review literature examining the impact of music intervention on disruptive behaviors in long-term care residents with dementia.

Visual Arts Education is the area of learning that is based upon only the kind of art that one can see, visual arts —drawing, painting, sculpture, and design in jewelry, pottery, weaving, fabrics, etc. and design applied to more practical fields such as commercial graphics and home furnishings. Contemporary topics include photography, video, film, design, and computer art. Art education may focus on students creating art, on learning to criticize or appreciate art, or some combination of the two. Liesbrock, Heinz.
