American Abstract expressionist painter Franz Kline was born on May 23rd 1910 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Hi Beth, thank you for taking time to view this hub about Frederick McCubbin and for your thoughts on some of his paintings. It is interesting to try and decipher the stories his paintings portray.

It was here that the artist, Ilya Repin (1844-1930) created some of his loveliest and most evocative works, including this glorious study of a lady crossing a ricketty bridge in a woodland setting.

In the 1940s, Burchfield rejected this realism, returning to his earlier approach of focusing on nature, embracing his beloved expressionistic style of painting once again. During this time, Burchfield even managed to rework many of his older paintings, often pasting paper around the borders in order to extend them. One example of this is his painting, “The Sphinx and the Milky Way,” in which Burchfield enlarges the painting by attaching it, along with several blank sheets of paper, to a larger sheet of paper, then continuing the painting onto the additions.

From this report we are told the columned altar screen, the ambo and all of the icons there were destroyed. We don’t know how much of the great sanctuary colonnade collapsed. That would have been very difficult to replace or repair, but we hear no more of it and what was done to restore it. The writer has not said anything about the great altar, so it must not have been damaged. Repairs started right away and, as the account states, were largely complete 4 months later so the church could be reopened for worship and to admit the thousands of pilgrims who came everyday. However, the Black Death struck Constantinople again in 1347 and took away half of the population of the city right in the middle of the repairs. Also, Byzantium was in the midst of horrible – and useless – civil wars. Although money had been raised abroad, more money needed to be raised to finish the repair of the dome and the mosaics. The people of Constantinople were taxed for the repairs and the new mosaics which were finished sometime after 1355. The mosaics were done in two phases are were supervised by an Italian, Giovanni Peralta, and involved a naturalized Catalan named Georgios Astras and a Greek, the the Protostrator Phakeolatos. Phakeoltos, who was described as a wealthy but not well-respected man by his contemporaries, had previously been appointed by the regent Anna to conduct a naval expedition in the in the Aegean. Later he conducted various engineering tasks for the Emperor John Kantakouzenos to build up and equip the navy, which failed completely in 1348. It is apparent that he had come by money through contracting government contracting jobs like the repair of Hagia Sophia. He had his hand in many pots. Astras and Peralta are described as being the technical experts on the project who eventually took on complete responsibility to finish it. The work of restoration was done fast and cheaply. Peralta was closely associated with Kantakouzenos and when he fell from power he disappears, Peralta had lost his patron. Astras continued to take on projects in Constantinople for many years afterwards.
1920s witnessed some of the best artworks of ‘Keeffe. Her first large scale flower painting, “Petunia, No.2 (1924),” was first exhibited in 1925. She canvassed the buildings of New York in “City Night and New York-Night (1926)” and “Radiator Bldg-Night, New York (1927).” In one of her painting, ‘The Black Iris (1926),’ she magnified a flower beautifully, giving it a startling and an unusual look. Later in her career, ‘Keeffe introduced different patterns of the sky, which she observed during her travels by air. Her mural, ‘Sky above Clouds (1962-63),’ is one of her largest illustrations. Music therapy may be defined in various ways, however, the purpose of it does not change. The main idea of practicing music therapy is to benefit from therapeutic aspects of music. According to the American Music Therapy Association Music Therapy uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of patients of all ages and abilities. Music therapy interventions can be designed to promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, enhance memory, improve communication, and promote physical rehabilitation.” Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities, which are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development. Music therapy is a growing discipline and includes diverse practices and models used worldwide. Purdie, H. (1997). Music therapy with adults who have traumatic brain injury and stroke. British Journal of Music Therapy, 11(2), 45-50. Sidney Janis Gallery, New York. Drawings for Principal Paintings by Gorky. 26 September – 22 October 1955. All cultures have music, distinguishable from speech. There are cross-cultural bioacoustics universals like pulse, volume, general phrase duration and certain aspects of timbre and pitch in music. There are cross-cultural perceptual universals like include pitch perception, octave generalization, categorical perception of discrete scale pitches, melodic stream segregation, perception of melodic contour and basic emotion perception in music. These universals support theories about the evolutionary origins of music, as they might indicate innate properties underlying musical behaviors. The ubiquity of music in human culture is indicative of its ability to produce pleasure and reward value. Music uses the same reward systems that are stimulated by food and sex. Dopamine and endogenous opioid ‘pleasure and reward system’ within the nucleus accumbens is activated during music processing and this system is known to play a pivotal role in establishing and maintaining behavior that is biologically necessary. This explain why music is of such high value across all human societies. Music can reliably induce feelings of pleasure, and indeed, people consistently rank music as among the top ten things in their lives that bring pleasure, above money, food and other arts.

The writer of lyrics is a lyricist The words to an extended musical composition such as an opera are, however, usually known as a “libretto” and their writer, as a “librettist”. The meaning of lyrics can either be explicit or implicit. Some lyrics are abstract, almost unintelligible, and, in such cases, their explication emphasizes form, articulation, meter, and symmetry of expression. Rappers can also create lyrics (often with a variation of rhyming words) that are meant to be spoken rhythmically rather than sung. Chennai-based sexologist, Dr Santhanam Jagannathan, believes that listening to the right kind of music is especially effective in helping a man with low testosterone levels. Firstly, the general taste of both partners has to be in sync. Secondly, their personality types, and positions they want to have sex in, play an important role in the selection of music. One partner may want it slow and romantic, the other, sensual and raunchy-so they need to first figure out their sexual compatibility to understand what kind of music goes with the mood,” he says. Jagannathan also believes that the timing is of utmost importance. Some people may prefer music during foreplay and intercourse, while others may find it distracting, and keep it for afterplay. A symbolic personal costume, highly decorated with ordinary objects; safety pins, felt tins, etc. Simple objects are elevated to precious status, similar to medals, medallions, or award pins. Storytelling, memory images, primitive motifs are suggested by the arrows and sun shapes. It relates to the whole purpose of wearing costumes – it transforms the wearer. Jones, J.D. (2005).

Others buy art for investment. In fact nowadays good art by an up and coming artist can often far exceed returns from things like savings accounts, stocks and shares, or bonds, etc, – and they get to enjoy the art for a number of years in the meantime.
Volume and Space: The hatched lines form dark and light areas which indicate a feeling of 3-D form. The space of the image is quite shallow with some depth indicated through the use of linear perspective in the shelves. Balance: The purse is centrally placed and is almost symmetrical. The symmetry is broken by the open part of the purse. Scale: The size of the art object is so much larger than the actual purse that it introduces an element of fantasy.
