Photography is used by amateurs to preserve memories of favorite times, to capture special moments, to tell stories, to send messages, and as a source of entertainment. Trythall, S.J. (2006).

Any work in an English-language museum or collection should usually be titled as the museum or owner titles it. However, a well-known variant title is sometimes acceptable. In such cases, it might be useful to give the name the owner uses in parentheses following the variant. Since the institution normally requires that its title be used in the caption, that title should appear first. In general, when alternative titles are used, the primary or principal title is given first, with the variant (or a title from earlier usage) following in parentheses.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 2016: 14-175. 2020 art market reports say it all—generally speaking, sales are up, millennials are participating more and more in major acquisitions at auction, and eyes are on Africa for fresh new voices. Still, as big-ticket Modernist and Renaissance-era lots have started to shrivel up, buyer taste for figuration has waned, if not halted entirely. Depictions of bodies, from closely-rendered portraits to more surrealist fare, have effectively ruled the contemporary sector for the last five years, sliding into stylistic favor after the fall of Zombie Formalism in the mid-2010s. Artists painting the figure enjoyed a thunderous blue-chip resurgence in the ‘90s thanks to heavy hitters like Lydia Yuskavage, John Currin and Cecily Brown, whose pseudo-sexual reinterpretations of art historical tropes delivered a dark twist on legible classics.

Marion Drummond strives to capture the immediacy and vibrancy of the scene before her, whether that be a still life, a portrait or a landscape. Such is the connection with the subject of her work that she will often mix the paint directly on the canvas with her fingers; in this process, there is a literal transfer of human warmth and energy to the painted surface. Marion describes her paintings as dynamically capturing ‘the moment’ and portraying it with a passionate energy. She has a particular love of the Blane valley countryside with its diversity of wildlife, rivers, moorland and hills. Daily walks provide Marion with colour notes for paintings and the sheer enjoyment of seeing the constant changing of light and season of the Scottish countryside. She successfully combines a love of hill-walking with painting al fresco to capture life with a sense of urgency and immediacy. Motherwell, Robert, and Ad Reinhardt, eds. Modern Artists in America.

African djembes are hand carved out of a single piece of wood. If you happen to be looking at African made djembes, inspect the body very carefully. Sometimes what you are looking at is actually a decorative piece that only looks like a drum. The shell will be much lighter and the overall construction might look less sturdy. I advise you to check for this if the drum is somewhere other than in a music store. Silverman, M. (2003).

Colour: Colours are bright and cheerful. The contrasting black helps neutralize the sweetness, giving the eye a rest. The repetition of the rose colour throughout the composition helps establish unity. Texture: Actual and implied. van Keuren, Philip. On Drawing: A Conversation with Werner H.

Music evolved as human emotions evolved and as human language evolved and as human intelligence evolved. The sound of music has changed as society has changed over the years, thus the change in the sound of music is really a reflection of our cultural evolution. In Indigenous cultures, music played a role in ceremonies and tradition. Traditional instruments were played, and lyrics were often strongly linked to nature. Rock music began in the early 1950s, relying on various musical genres, including blues, jazz and gospel, as well as country music. One of the oldest-known musical instruments in the world was the flute. Most people love aesthetically pleasing chords and rhythms. Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2012 (exhibition catalogue).

Effects of music therapy on preterm infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, 16(5), 72-73. Harmony refers to the “vertical” sounds of pitches in music, which means pitches that are played or sung together at the same time to create a chord Usually this means the notes are played at the same time, although harmony may also be implied by a melody that outlines a harmonic structure (i.e., by using melody notes that are played one after the other, outlining the notes of a chord). In music written using the system of major-minor tonality (“keys”), which includes most classical music written from 1600 to 1900 and most Western pop, rock and traditional music, the key of a piece determines the scale used, which centres around the “home note” or tonic of the key. Simple classical pieces and many pop and traditional music songs are written so that all the music is in a single key. More complex Classical, pop and traditional music songs and pieces may have two keys (and in some cases three or more keys). Classical music from the Romantic era (written from about 1820-1900) often contains multiple keys, as does jazz , especially Bebop jazz from the 1940s, in which the key or “home note” of a song may change every four bars or even every two bars. In addition to Red Rag Art Gallery Nicola Wakeling art work has been exhibited at other leading Scottish Art Galleries and are held in several collections. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Nicola Wakeling artist studio and like all Red Rag Modern art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.

The purpose of Study 3 was to continue to provide extended recorded music listening for infants 30-32 PCA and music listening alternating with MMS for premature infants 33 weeks PCA through discharge. Recorded music was provided Monday through Friday, alternating a half a hour of music with a half a hour of silence across four hours. Once infants were 33 weeks, they were eligible for MMS to assist in neurological growth and development. On days when infants did not receive MMS, they then received the recorded music listening protocol. Dependent variable included length of time receiving oxygen, weight gain, length of time to full bottle feeds, and length of hospitalization. Data has been collected since May 2011.

Each exquisitely detailed drawing is comprised of pencil, crayon and oil crayon on a large sheet of graph paper. They may be abstract, but they were created for the purpose of healing – these weren’t simply decorative or deliberatively expressive works of art. Seemingly symmetrical patterns give way to irregularity: initially the four main components of Work No. 117 appear as mirror images but, upon closer inspection, different internal patterns emerge within the elongated yellow diamonds. The ostensibly harmonious arrangement of drawings in the North Gallery is also misaligned. 1968 Annual Exhibition: Contemporary American Sculpture. Exh. cat. New York: Whitney Museum of American Art, 1968. Favro has used a variety of 3-D media to construct this sculpture. Because the linear perspective of the original painting was distorted, Favro had to distort his 3-D objects accordingly, lengthening or shortening a leg here or there.

After joining the Glasgow’s Southern Art Club she was encouraged to switch to oils and hasn’t looked back. Composition: Only the lower third of the picture is occupied (positive space), but the sky (unoccupied space) has been assigned great importance by its size. Line: Quite fuzzy. There is evenly weighted delineation. Colour: For the most part, the image is quite colourless (although it is textural). The accents of colour are strong enough to add interest but not to take over the image.
