Series of pictures depicting motion.
stimulated Futurists interest in motion.
"Idea vs. Craft" Stresses the intellectual creative act (Duchamp idea)
part stand for whole in Cubist sculpture and collage.
(Picasso discovers this in African Art)
Modern Architecture focuses on the importance of simplicity and the use of materials such as glass and steel frames.
Architectural support system projects horizantal architectural member out into space without external support.
Architects should design a building based on the purpose of the building
Relief style. uses knife, gouge to carve away (Mountain top). Woodcut has very stark contrast. Technique of digging out lines.
Intaglio style. uses burin to cut line (valley). Much more details and gredations from light to dark. (Renaissance)
Intaglio style. uses needle and acid bath (fluid valley). Drawing through wax. Doodling. Resembles a sketch. (Baroque)
needle scratches to make line., An intaglio printmaking technique in which the design is scratched directly into a metal plate with a sharp, pointed, tool that is held like a pen.
a method of planographic printing from a metal or stone surface. using a glossy crayon to make image
ink forced through stencils on silk stretched across a frame. (like tshirts or Warhol's Marilyn Monroe)
number of copies printed
individual sheet printed.
it's the woodblock, stone, or metal plate used
the technique of using parallel lines drawn close together for shading (used in engraving and etching)
used to model in engraving, etching (multiple strokes which are "crossed") light and shade created by these strokes at right angles.
Property of a color that distinguishes it from others. (aka: name of color)
Relative darkness or lightness of a hue, characterized by how much white and how much black is mixed into the color.

painting that applies the pigment thickly so that brush or palette knife marks are visible
Device used to suggest perspective forms placed in front of forms to suggest relative placement
a depth cue whereby larger objects are perceived as closer than smaller ones
Technique to suggest that parts of the body, figures, or other forms are shown in sharp recession. Illusions of space.
One-point linear perspective
Representing 3-dimensional objects on a 2-dimensional plane. All parallel edges and lines converging as orthagonals towards a vanishing point
Converging diagonal lines that meet at the vanishing point in scientific perspective system
The place where the converging orthagonals would converge if continued
a smaller part of a larger whole
creating the illusion of depth of space by fading colors and eliminating detail in objects that are further away. (blurry sky, etc,)
Renaissance Wolfflin characteristic-- Creating sharply defined forms of precisely delineated contours
Baroque Wolfflin characteristic-- Using large brushstrokes and flecks of paint to define form
Renaissance Wolfflin characteristic-- very strong geometric scale (Symmetrical,balanced,calm,harmony,logic.)
Baroque Wolfflin characteristic-- not an organized plan, characters are "throughout" painting, in the background, typically in a diagonal sense
Renaissance Wolfflin characteristic-- Everything is evenly lit with the same amount of detail. Sharp edges/fine brush and details and information from every figure and individual.
Baroque Wolfflin characteristic-- some areas are in darkness, not every character is evenly lit
