Andy Warhol was a famous and well-respected American ‘Pop’ artist, considered even as a ‘Post Renaissance Man’ for his unique and unmatched style. Offers an overview of the perceptual, cognitive, and brain bases of performing, composing, and listening to music for enjoyment and for human benefit.

Offers students an opportunity to learn how to design and conduct their own research study in music perception and cognition. Ink Drawings 1890-1986. Exh. cat. Houston: Janie C. Lee Gallery, 1987. Everyone knows that labor and delivery can be a painful and sometimes anxiety producing experience for the mother, the coach, and even the hospital staff. Music therapists can help reduce these negative aspects of childbirth by providing music therapy before, during, and even sometimes, after the birth of a child. The following summary is evidence of the positive effects of Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth. At her lab at Boston Children’s Hospital, Gaab leads a team of researchers studying children’s brain development, recently identifying signs in the brain that might indicate dyslexia before kids learn to reads. Gaab and her colleagues are also looking for connections between musical training and language development. Khemthong, S., Pejarasangharn, U., Uptampohtiwat, T., & Khamya, A. (2012).

The Italian poet, Marinetti, published The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism” in 1909, which inspired artists such as Carlo Carra and Umberto Boccioni to a further stage of abstraction and profoundly influenced art movements throughout Europe.

However, just because individuals with ASC have lower levels of cognitive empathy does not mean that they do not also listen to music for emotional purposes. Coinciding with interactionist theories which argue that people seek out environments that are a reflection of the self, Joni Mitchell said in an interview: “The trick is if you listen to that music and you see me, you’re not getting anything out of it. If you listen to that music and you see yourself, it will probably make you cry and you’ll learn something about yourself and now you’re getting something out of it.” 5 Individuals with ASC may like the music that they do, because they are able to see aspects of themselves in the music. Perhaps certain characteristics, themes, and messages in the music reflect what it is like to live with autism. Bull, R. (2008). Autism and the Family: Group Music Therapy with Mothers and Children. In A. Oldfield & C. Flower (Eds.), Music Therapy with Children and their Families (pp. 71-88). London: Jessica Kingsley. American Art Analog. Vol. 3 (includes artist’s statements). Compiled by Michael David Zellman. New York: Chelsea House in association with American Art Analog, 1986. It has been proved that music is related to creativity, and not only among artists. The lives of a number of geniuses, including Albert Einstein and Frank Lloyd Wright, confirm this. A number of innovators were involved in music in some way. For example, a physicist of Russian descent, Leo Theremin, apart from inventing sound alarm systems and a number of tools used in espionage, is best known for his invention of a theremin. It is a musical instrument that uses a magnetic field and which people can play without touching it. Great inventors, mathematicians, and physical theorists were drawn to music either seeking inspiration in it or being fascinated by the musical sounds.

One can’t fail to experience a dynamic, spontaneous and dramatic impact on viewing Kline’s paintings. The general inspiration of Kline’s works range from symbols of the modern industrial civilization such as railroads, engines, tunnels, bridges, etc. Though spontaneity is the most recognized characteristic, Kline’s many complex renditions are a result of extensive studies. His paintings were created after referring to his own compositional drawings. He would draw sketches first on any paper he could find before he began his masterpieces. His paintings mask the conscious effort behind them, but the visible spontaneity and intensity of his paintings classified him along with Jackson Pollock and other Abstract Expressionists under the title ‘action painter’. Many consider the Deesis among the greatest treasures of world art. Some Christians call it the finest representation of Christ in the Eastern Orthodox world. Some consider its survival a sign to us today. I am not sure what the sign is. Most of the mosaic has been lost. It is miraculous that the faces and so much of Christ and John the Baptist are still there to look at us look at them. Perhaps, Christ has saved this mosaic of Himself for us as a symbol of the power of God in art and beauty and how it can survive the horrors we create. I have thought it might be that the myth of the Priest entering the wall with the host in 1453 is really here in the Deesis. Christ has survived and is still with us on the wall of the South Gallery. I have never met anyone of any faith who has not been moved by this image of Christ. Cassity, M., & Cassity, J. (2006). Multimodal Psychiatric Music Therapy for Adults, Adolescents and Children: A Clinical Manual (3rd Edition). London: Jessica Kingsley. William Etty Art and Controversy features over 100 works by York’s most famous son, a controversial artist, who attracted both praise and condemnation. The artists came from similar backgrounds, but their painting styles were quite different. Contemporary American and primarily East-European art. Represents a variety of media, styles and subjects, ranging from pure abstract to highly representational. Li, X.M., Yan, H., Zhou, K.N., Dang, S.N., Wang, D.L., & Zhang, Y.P. (2011).

Dog sled, northern Newfoundland or Labrador. A dog team is being readied to tow the sled. The figures are standing on an ice flow with open water in the distance.

Sidney Janis Gallery, New York. Paintings by Arshile Gorky from 1929 to 1948. 5 February – 3 March 1962. Catalogue. Nothing much beats the feeling of pride when people stop and admire your art. Gaining peoples respect and admiration is just one aspect of being a successful artist. Trouble is, most of us had a very poor art education at school, and most of the great traditional methods and techniques of previous masters were lost to our generation following the “modern art” era. In addition to Red Rag Modern Art Gallery Helen Wilson has exhibited at other leading Modern Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Helen Wilson artist studio and like all Red Rag Scottish art and Modern art it can be shipped worldwide. The brain changes that musical training entails are numerous and well-documented: they involve brain regions important for auditory processing, coordination of fast movements and cognitive control, as well as sensory-to-motor coupling mechanisms. Music increases brain plasticity, changing neural pathways. In general, trained musicians exhibit greater volume and cortical thickness in auditory cortex (Heschl’s gyrus). These regions are most likely responsible for fine pitch categorization and discrimination, as well as for temporal processing. Structural differences due to musical training extend to motor and sensorimotor cortices, to premotor and supplementary motor regions, and involve subcortical structures such as the basal ganglia and the cerebellum. This neuronal circuitry is engaged in motor control and fine motor planning (e.g., finger motions) during music performance as well as in motor learning. The involvement of brain regions that are believed to contain mirror neurons (e.g., posterior inferior frontal gyrus) during music perception is enhanced in musicians compared with nonmusicians. Differences are also observed in terms of brain connectivity (i.e., white matter). For example, musicians exhibit greater midsagittal size of the corpus callosum. This structure, supporting the interaction between the two hemispheres, may be the substrate of coordinated movement of right and left hand (e.g., for the performance of complex bimanual motor sequences). The mounting evidence from cross-sectional studies shows that brain plasticity can differentiate musicians from nonmusicians. National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
