Vincent Willem van Gogh or Vincent van Gogh or Van Gogh or Vincent Gogh, was one of the finest Dutch artists, who is also called as the father of Expressionism. After graduating Morag Muir successfully balanced a career painting and lecturing. Increasing demand for her art work later resulted in Morag concentrating her efforts on painting and she is now a full-time artist. In recent years, Thompson’s work has also been exhibited regularly in group exhibitions worldwide, including Il Secolo del Jazz: Arte, Cinema, Musica e Fotografia da Picasso a Basquiat (The Jazz Century: Art, Cinema, Music and Photography from Picasso to Basquiat) at the Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rovereto, Italy, which traveled to the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris France and the Centre de Cultura Contemporània in Barcelona, Spain (2009); Blues for Smoke at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, CA, which traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art and Wexner Center for the Arts of the Ohio State University in Columbus, OH (2012); Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties at the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY, which traveled to the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH and the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, TX (2014); Beat Generation at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France (2016); and The Color Line: African American Artists and Segregation at the Musée du Quai Branly (2016). In 2017, Thompson’s work was featured in Visionary Painting: Curated by Alex Katz at the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, ME; Regarding the Figure at The Studio Museum in Harlem and Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965 at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery and at the school’s gallery in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Loss of hearing- Almost all the headphones expose your ears to high-decibel sound waves which can cause some serious damage your ears. If you listen to music on a high volume which is equivalent or higher than 90 decibels, then it may cause some serious damage to your ears as well as permanent hearing loss. Thus make sure to take breaks while listening to music on earphones. Also, maintain the level of volume on a moderate level. Bernstein, Joanne.

Among these, two studies were conducted in India with Indian classical music. Deshmukh et al. 78 studied 50 individuals diagnosed with major depressive disorder. Participants in the music group were made to listen to music with selected ragas while the control group received treatment with psychotropics. Depression scores improved with the music group comparable to the control group and these effects persisted beyond the treatment period. Four out of the 18 participants, included in the other Indian study by Rumball, 79 were diagnosed of depression and all four of them scored significantly lesser depression scores on the self-rated questionnaire both during and after the sessions. Major limitations of this study were lack of randomization and extremely small sample size. The sessions included a short quiet prayer (5-10 songs) for 1 h with discussion of the feeling” of the song; this pattern lacked a proper standardization. Brenson, Michael.

Some of the other oddities about the decoration of Hagia Sophia can be seen in the narthex where some of the motifs and the crosses don’t match. There are other places that have sloppy workmanship. This is strange – there are parts perfectly executed next to work that looks cruder. Recently, the Byzantine scholar, Natalia Teterianikov, has discovered that while Hagia Sophia was built, in 536-537 there was a period of global disruption caused by a major volcanic eruption that covered the earth with a veil of ash. Historians of the time, like Procopius, have reported it. Today it is called the Mystery Cloud of 536. One of the effects of the eruption was the reduction of light to only 4 hours a day. Global cooling also increased the drying of plaster, which had to laid in smaller patches. Taking a dangerous risk, some marble elements in the church might have been carved by lamplight. Mistakes would not have been visible to viewers on the ground, so they were overlooked until the darkness lifted and work was almost completed. Then it was too late to do anything about them.

Laidman, Hugh. How to Make Abstract Paintings. New York: Viking Press, 1961. Modern Art is pleased to announce a major exhibition of paintings by Lois Dodd spanning the last six decades of the artist’s career. This is Dodd’s first exhibition with the gallery and her first survey outside America. The show will include works encompassing the breadth of Dodd’s output and covering key motifs including landscapes, isolated architectural elements, nocturnal scenes and burning houses. Another thing that disturbs visitors to the building are the imperfections in the vaults and the dome. The curve is not perfect. The dome – and parts of the semi-domes – fell three times over the centuries. The most ‘recent’ was the collapse of 1346 that brought down a part of the eastern arch with part of the dome. The Emperor John and his wife Anna had to beg to raise the funds to do the repairs – what was left of the empire could not finance them. The Russians and other Orthodox princes gave money and the repairs got done. Magee, W., Ghetti, C., & Moyer, A. (2015).

Raman worked on the acoustics of musical instruments from 1909 to 1935 and regularly published his research work on musical instruments in reputed journal like Nature (London), journal Dept. of science, University of Calcutta, Philosophical magazine, Indian association for cultivation of science etc. and also in various proceedings of national and international repute. He worked out the theory of transverse vibration of bowed strings, on the basis of superposition velocities. He was also the first to investigate the harmonic nature of the sound of the Indian drums such as the tabla and the mridangam 2 He had some pioneer work on violin family and ektara. On the wolf note of the violin and cello”, The kinematics of bowed string”, The musical instruments and their tones”, Musical drums with harmonic overtones” etc are some examples of his published work. Raman was fascinated by waves and sounds and is always carried in his mind the memory of reading Helmholtz’s book on ‘The Sensations of Tone’ in his school days. His work on musical instruments is the biggest motivation of research in the area. After Sir C V Raman, research work on musical instruments was carried forward by S Kumar, K C Kar, B S Ramakrishnan and B M Banerji during mid of nineteenth century. After that there was a big void in the research of Indian musical instrument sound.

There’s a colourful coordination of design – asymmetrical areas are adjacent to symmetrical arrangements. Black areas bordered by white lines contrast strongly with the reds. Hard metallic surfaces invite comparison with the soft textures of the fabric. We come to your party, or event and entertain your guests with colorful and original works of art. We bring photo albums with over 2,000 images for your guests to choose from and many beautiful designs can be created upon request. Magill, L. (2011).

A related question is whether animals and humans perceive musical sounds in a similar manner. Although research in this field is still in its early stages, studies on pitch, timbre, and rhythm perception in animals suggest that vocal learning species may have better auditory discrimination abilities than non-vocal learning species, and that, in certain contexts, non-human species do appear to have preferences for some musical sounds over others.

Sometimes you can find it on the wall with the paintings displayed, other times in the invitation or on a pamphlet. This can give you amazing insight on where the artist comes from, their motive and method of making the art, and why they are so fascinated with painting Chihuahuas. Olsen, Fred.

Colour Terminology Value Hue: The name given to a colour; e.g., red, yellow, blue, green. Primary colours: The three hues which cannot be produced by a mixture of other hues. Theoretically, all other colours (except black and white) are developed from the primary colours. Secondary Colour: Created by mixing any two of the primary colours. Red and yellow combine to create orange, yellow and blue to create green, and red and blue to create violet. Tertiary colours: Derived by mixing a secondary colour with one of its primary colours; e.g., blue-green or yellow-orange. Value: The lightness or darkness of a colour; e.g., pink and maroon are values of red. The value of a colour can be altered by the addition of white or black. A tint is produced by the addition of white to a hue. A shade is produced by the addition of black to a hue. Intensity: The degree of brightness or vividness of a hue, such as red, can be made less intense, or duller, by greying it with the complement (in this case green) of that colour. The date and origin of the first device considered a musical instrument is disputed. The oldest object that some scholars refer to as a musical instrument, a simple flute, dates back as far as 67,000 years. Some consensus dates early flutes to about 37,000 years ago. However, most historians believe that determining a specific time of musical instrument invention is impossible due to the subjectivity of the definition and the relative instability of materials used to make them. Many early musical instruments were made from animal skins, bone, wood, and other non-durable materials. Body painting involves many curved areas which is very different to canvas painting. If a model slightly moves it can change your lines completely so remember curves when painting around limbs, the torso, the neck and the face. Christo Vladimirov Javacheff (1935-2020) and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon (1935-2009), known as Christo and Jeanne-Claude, were artists noted for their large-scale, site-specific environmental installations, often large landmarks and landscape elements wrapped in fabric, including the Wrapped Reichstag, The Pont Neuf Wrapped, Running Fence in California, and The Gates in New York City’s Central Park.
