Blood Pressure: Music has shown the ability to lower blood pressure through listening to relaxing rhythms and sounds. Over a period of time, listening to calm music can relax all muscles in the body, including the heart. Jacobsen, S., & McKinney, C. (2015). A music therapy tool for assessing parent-child interaction in cases of emotional neglect. Journal of Child and Family Studies, 24(7), 2164-2173. Over the centuries, some parts of the revetment have degraded and have lost their color. For example some of the panels of Verde Antique (see above) have lost their color, turning gray, and have degraded, in parts, to talc (this has also happened to some of columns of Verde Antique). Due to the physical stress the church has constantly been under since its construction, revetment panels have cracked all over Hagia Sophia and some have become fragmented or fallen down, even in the nave. Panels have been moved from the aisles and galleries to replace these. As a result a significant part of the revetment has been lost in the aisles and has been replaced with painted plaster. It would be easy to replace the missing slabs, many of the quarries can still be worked or are operating today. Collage: An art form in which the artist creates the image, or a portion of it, by sticking materials to a picture plane surface. Another paper, published in 2003 in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, reported that music can incite aggressive thoughts and feelings. During five experiments with 75 female and 70 male college students, those who heard a violent song were shown to feel more hostile than those who heard a nonviolent song, from the same artist and style. The study showed that violent songs led to more aggressive thoughts in three different measures: More aggressive interpretations when looking at ambiguous words, an increased speed with which people read aggressive compared to non-aggressive words and a greater proportion of people completing aggressive words when filling in blanks on forms given to them during the study. One way to put these findings, say the authors, is that participants who listened to violent rock songs then interpret the meaning of ambiguous words such as rock” and stick” in an aggressive way. The study adds that the outcomes of hostile thoughts could be short-lived. If the next song’s lyrics are nonviolent or if some other nonviolent event occurs, the effects of violent lyrics will dissipate, states the paper.

One of the most famous Japanese painters of horses during the Showa period (1926-1989) is Yoshijiro (Mokuchu) Urushibara (1888-1953). Urushibara was one of Japan’s most famous woodblock artists of the 20th century and he made many black and white prints of natural subjects, including horses. Many of these prints are on display in museums and art galleries around the world. Robarts, J. (2006).

The American Cancer Society (2009) estimates that almost 1.5 million new cancer cases were diagnosed during 2009 in the United States, resulting in over half a million cancer-related deaths that year. Music therapy may help address psychosocial concerns of hospitalized cancer patients and contribute to management of unpleasant symptoms and side effects. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a single music therapy session on stress, pain, nausea, sense of well-being, and treatment perceptions on patients and caregivers on a medical oncology-hematology unit. Participants (N = 47) were randomly assigned to a wait-list control or experimental group. Control participants completed a brief questionnaire to assess symptoms before receiving patient preferred live music performed by the researchers. Experimental participants completed the questionnaire after receiving a single dose of music therapy. The only variable that reached statistical significance was perception of therapeutic effectiveness of music therapy, with the experimental group having a higher rating. The experimental group tended to have more positive ratings for stress and nausea. Concerning caregivers, participants in the experimental condition had higher ratings of stress and well-being than participants in the control group. Limitations of the study, implications for clinical practice, and suggestions for future research are provided. Importance was given to instrumental music. It was dominated by further development of musical forms initially defined in the Baroque period: the sonata , the concerto, and the symphony Others main kinds were the trio , string quartet , serenade and divertimento The sonata was the most important and developed form. Although Baroque composers also wrote sonatas, the Classical style of sonata is completely distinct. All of the main instrumental forms of the Classical era, from string quartets to symphonies and concertos, were based on the structure of the sonata. The instruments used chamber music and orchestra became more standardized. In place of the basso continuo group of the Baroque era, which consisted of harpsichord, organ or lute along with a number of bass instruments selected at the discretion of the group leader (e.g., viol, cello, theorbo, serpent), Classical chamber groups used specified, standardized instruments (e.g., a string quartet would be performed by two violins, a viola and a cello). The Baroque era improvised chord-playing of the continuo keyboardist or lute player was gradually phased out between 1750 and 1800.

Autism is a disorder that is present from birth and affects essential human behaviors, such as social interaction, the ability to communicate ideas and feelings, expressive forms of imagination, and relationships with others (ECA, 2001). A central feature of autism is difficulty with social skills. Research on the communication patterns of children with autism revealed that children with autism initiated fewer bids for interaction, continued fewer conversational turns, and showed less sympathy or interest for the perspectives of the persons with whom they were interacting (White et al., 2007; Jones & Schwartz, 2008; Bellon-Harn & Harn, 2006, Whalen, Schreibman, and Ingersoll, 2006). The idea of influence is so broad, so ubiquitous and so often misused that it may be the most misleading concept with which we try to make sense of art and art history. Artists may be influenced by things they love, and by things they hate; they may be deeply influenced by precursors with whom they share no identifiable affinities of content or style; and they may produce work that seems superficially identical to that of another artist even when there was no contact, no intent to imitate, and no similarity of purpose or message.

Surrealism visual artworks and writings with the aim to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality “. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself. We now know from clinical case studies that music can affect—in very specific ways—human neurological, psychological, and physical functioning in areas such as learning, processing language, expressing emotion, memory, and physiological and motor responses. How your brain perceives and processes music also differs depending on whether or not you are a musician. The effects of music raise intriguing questions about both early brain development and brain plasticity later in life.

Through “Campbell’s Soup Cans,” Andy Warhol paved a new way in presenting something interesting in everyday mundane objects. He always challenged the traditional myths of art and created this masterpiece, though devoid of any emotions, but still connected to the most of the people. He even entered the Time Magazine in 1962, to promote ‘Pop Art’ revolution, where art was depicted through ordinary objects and it was not necessary for it to be creative. Mastnak, W. (2016).

Lane Galleries, Beyond the Loom: Fiber as Sculpture highlights pioneering artists who radically redefined textiles as modern art in the 1960s and 1970s: Anni Albers, Olga de Amaral, Ruth Asawa, Sheila Hicks, Kay Sekimachi and Lenore Tawney. Co-opting a medium traditionally associated with women’s work and domesticity, they boldly broke free from the constraints of the loom to create large-scale, sculptural weavings that engaged with contemporary art movements such as Minimalism. A second rotation in the same space, Subversive Threads, will open late spring 2020, focusing on contemporary artists who have used textiles to challenge notions of identity, gender and politics.

Not only was Bearden well aware of contemporary practice, but he had also been involved with some of the artists of the evolving Abstract Expressionist group since his return to New York from military service in the mid-1940s. He joined the Kootz Gallery in 1945 and had three consecutive solo shows there. At the time, Samuel Kootz also represented Robert Motherwell, Adolph Gottlieb, and William Baziotes, among others, and showed the work of Arshile Gorky and Hans Hofmann. Kootz had group meetings with the artists on a regular basis, so Bearden would have had many opportunities to discuss their current work as well as his own. Despite his renown as a teacher, it wasn’t until 1944, at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century Gallery, that Hofmann had his first solo exhibition in the United States. There he became part of the emerging New York School, and was friendly with Pollock, Robert Motherwell, William Baziotes, Clyfford Still, and Mark Rothko. From that time on, Hofmann exhibited widely. The Addison Gallery of American Art organized a large retrospective of his work in 1948. In 1957 another was mounted at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
