The Mystic Hunt of the Unicorn Representing Annunciation by Martin Schongauer shows the unicorn as small and brown rather than the usual white. Several artists use the hunt of the unicorn to symbolically represent Christ coming into the world by way of a virgin.

Value: This is a good example of a value scale in an image. All the tones are evident from the darkest black to a clean white. On the whole though, one sees the image as being fairly dark. Shape: Line is subordinate to the dominant large flat shapes of value placed next to each other. Tyler, H. (2002).

Even when music is notated relatively precisely, as in classical music, there are many decisions that a performer has to make, because notation does not specify all of the elements of music precisely. The process of deciding how to perform music that has been previously composed and notated is termed interpretation”. Different performers’ interpretations of the same work of music can vary widely, in terms of the tempos that are chosen and the playing or singing style or phrasing of the melodies. Composers and songwriters who present their own music are interpreting their songs, just as much as those who perform the music of others. The standard body of choices and techniques present at a given time and a given place is referred to as performance practice, whereas interpretation is generally used to mean the individual choices of a performer. Formalism is the study of art by analyzing and comparing form and style—the way objects are made and their purely visual aspects. In painting, formalism emphasizes compositional elements such as color, line, shape, texture, and other perceptual aspects rather than iconography or the historical and social context. At its extreme, formalism in art history posits that everything necessary to comprehending a work of art is contained within the work of art. The context for the work, including the reason for its creation, the historical background, and the life of the artist, that is, its conceptual aspect is considered to be of secondary importance. Anti-formalism in art would assert the opposite ascription of respectively primary and secondary importance.

Architecture is my favorite kind of art, but sculpture is right in there behind it. I really like these photos of sculptures, even the strange ones. If I ever get back to Houston I’ll definitely have to check some of these out. You always write such excellent articles on art, and I especially appreciate the articles on your local museums and exhibits. Children’s reading abilities may also improve as a result of musical training. Reading is one of the most important skills a child needs to develop in order to excel in all areas of life. Even mathematic subjects require good reading comprehension skills in order to complete problem-solving questions. A study conducted at Northwestern University found that children who attended music classes regularly, and most importantly, actively participated in those classes, had better speech processing abilities in addition to higher reading scores than children not involved in music class.

The Intaglio Printing Process The image is incised into the plate. After the plate is inked, the upper surfaces are wiped clean, leaving ink behind in the incised lines. Paper is pressed over the plate and into the grooves, picking up the ink to produce the printed image on its surface. In a recent study, thirty-two older adults performed a variety of singing and rhythm playing tasks under the direction of a music therapist. Both new and familiar songs were sung, and questions were asked about the songs. Study participants were introduced to a hand drum, and were asked to imitate rhythms played by the therapist, to chant and play rhythms at the same time, and to make up their own rhythm patterns. Participants also received three mental status tests typically used to evaluate people who have symptoms of a dementia-related illness.
