Description: Industrialization across Europe in the mid 19th century resulted in a growing sense among many that mass-production and artistic expression could go hand in hand. Description: The woodcut, that most elemental of print forms, arose in northern Europe around 1400 with the new availability of paper.
Description: In this Image Set Scholars Resource examines extreme skill and craftsmanship in working with materials that do not always lend themselves to the shapes and forms intended or imagined. Description: These 'pictures within pictures' are minute views of the landscape often literally seen through the window of an iconographic-studded interior or over the shoulder of a foreground figure a la Robert Campin or Rogier van der Weyden. Description: Exhibitions of works of art by great masters are exceptional and increasingly rare. Description: The depiction of nudes has long been seen in western art--indeed as far back as prehistoric times--with distinctive fertility figures like the Venus of Willendorf. Description: In the late Eighteenth century, the Hapsburg influence across Europe was magnified by the marriage of Maria Antonia (sixteenth child of Maria Theresia) to Louis-Auguste, the Dauphin, in 1770. Description: The study of Impressionism would hardly be possible without the large collection of paintings and drawings by Claude Monet and his fellow Impressionist painters in the Musee Marmottan.
Description: The vendors of Scholars Resource offer a rich variety of images suitable to accompany any design course. Description: Our collection of photographs is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bridgeman Art Library (which includes works from the prestigious Giraudon archive, founded in 1877). Description: Artist's interpretations of values of money, love, death, self-worth, charity, betrayal, joys and sorrow. Description: A Historic Overview of Fashion for ladies and gentlemen in Europe, China, Japan and America. Description: The general term “frescoes” refers here not only to painting on wet plaster (buon fresco), or nearly dry plaster (mezzo-fresco), but also to works painted on dry plaster (a secco).

Description: Traveling the world in search of inspiration, Scott Gilchrist documents architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and public art through the eyes of an architect and artist. Scholars Resource now includes images from all modules through number 10, bringing the total number of images to 78,000. Description: Wall painting in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome was distinctive to each culture, but moving from one culture to another through the centuries the flow of style and design moves gracefully from the earliest Old Kingdom tomb paintings to the lush interiors at Pompeii and Herculaneum frozen in time in Mount Vesuvius' 79 CE eruption. Description: This diverse and entertaining set, with examples arranged in roughly chronological order, is drawn from over a dozen different Scholars Resource vendors, and is appropriate to a number of disciplines. A staffer going through boxes in a storage room at the University of Michigan’s Center for Chinese Studies has discovered a complete set of 15 paper-cut propaganda posters from the early days of the Cultural Revolution. The posters were made using the ancient Chinese craft of paper-cut, decorative cuttings in red paper that are traditionally used as auspicious decoration for weddings, birthdays, Lunar New Year, and other celebrations. Associate history professor Wang Zheng said the collection was produced at a small, folk art institute in the southern province of Guangdong, and it most likely wasn’t commissioned by Communist Party leaders.
According to Ena Schlorff, the Center for Chinese Studies’ program coordinator, the images were donated to the University of Michigan by U of M professor Michel Oksenberg who is thought to have secured the posters while doing research in Hong Kong in the early 70s.
Professor Wang plans to include one of the images in a book she’s writing about the Cultural Revolution.
The University of Michigan has no immediate plans to put the collection on display, but they have made me a very happy panda by digitizing all the posters and uploading high resolution scans of them for us all to marvel at the incredibly intricate work in extreme closeup. This is the most frequent excuse we in Britain use for not learning foreign languages, whether we are tourists in Spain or representing a business trying to exploit the German market. 2008 and 2009 and officials there accepted a whopping $33.5 billion in bribes from Russian companies last year, according to a new Russian government report cited in the St. When we think of “culture”, we may see pictures, remember what we were taught in a geography class in school or think that sophisticated stereotypes represent the values and behaviours of a country and its people.

Russian business affairs, which includes a range of activities that could be regarded as violations of universal codes of human integrity, including extortion and flagrant breach of contract.

As geologists, explorers, archaeologists and climatologists have learned more about the forces of nature, artists have captured--and preserved on canvas-- unadulterated landscapes that evoke awe and respect.
An enormous influx of workers into cities necessitated large-scale housing projects at the beginning of the 20th century.
The earliest prints were generally of a devotional nature and rapidly became popular, largely because of their affordability, in contrast to costly illuminated manuscripts. Sometimes undervalued or overlooked, works of sculpture--beginning with Rodin and listed here in order of decades--speak to the creativity and imagination of the artists and are a direct reflection of the time in which they were created.
In the planning stage for ten years, one such special exhibition opened at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in November of 2015.
A large number of sketches illustrates the ideas Monet developed into his paintings and--thanks to the advent of photography—photos of family and friends offer real insights into the artist's personal life and surroundings. The images in this set have been selected to illustrate a diverse range of design elements for the following areas: 1) architectural design, 2) product design, 3) fashion design, 4) interior design, 5) graphic arts, 6) materials and 7) techniques. You do not need to order an entire set; you can also order individual images from each Set. These photographs range from early experimental "photogenic drawings" of the 1830s, daguerreotypes, and tintypes, to gelatin silver prints of the twentieth century. Regardless of whether these garments were for ceremonial purposes or for every day use, designed by fashion houses in Paris, London, New York or depicted in paintings, images from the fabulous Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum are helping to make our Image Set much more comprehensive and illustrate the profound creativity and craftsmanship with which these costumes were created. These works range from medieval times to the present and among the artists represented are Bruegel, Rembrandt, Goltzius, Goya, Gauguin, Lautrec, etc. From the southwest is the oldest continuously inhabited community of Taos Pueblo, as well as coverage of important Ancestral Puebloan architectural remains, petroglyphs and pictographs from the sites of Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon and the Butler Wash, River House ruin. These works range from the seventeenth to the twentieth century and include examples of painting, sculpture, architecture, engraving and photography from artists as varied in style as Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt and Thomas Hart Benton to Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Alexander Calder and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Its historic core--750 years old in 1987--in Berlin-Mitte has been restored to its pre-war, historic glory: Unter den Linden with its grand old buildings, the Brandenburger Tor, the Museumsinsel and the Nikolaiviertel on the Fischer Insel recall Berlin's early beginnings and its grandeur under the Kaiser. By the 19th century women were finding a greater freedom to formally study art and were gaining greater access to academies.
The formal Egyptian canon varied little for nearly three thousand years yet was to be adapted and enriched in Minoan frescoes, the forerunners of a freer Greek style of painting we see in the later adaptations of Roman painters.
Carol Stepanchuk, the Center for Chinese Studies’s community outreach coordinator, fished them out of the clutter and showed them to faculty members who recognized them as rare artifacts to survive a turbulent era.
The detail and complexity of these posters make them superb examples of the art, but they are also of notable historical significance because they give a pictorial view of the Cultural Revolution from the perspective of fairly autonomous local artists in the southern provinces, far from the center of power in Beijing where artists were directly controlled by Mao Zedong. She said it shows how young artists at the time understood and related to the decade-long Cultural Revolution, and she plans to use one of the images in a book she is writing. In September of 1971 he fled China after an apparent coup attempt only to die in a plane crash on his way to Russia.
He joined the University of Michigan faculty in 1973 and he donated a large collection of materials, including these 15 pieces, when he left the university in 1991. She’s also trying to track down the artists who did the painstaking cutout work to interview them about their experiences during the period. To a large extent, it is true that many more people in Europe speak and understand English than speak and understand, for example, Czech. What we often fail to realise is that as individuals, we now need to network on a global scale as well, in order to maintain the effectiveness of our role. What a wonderful cartoon depicting the differences between Globish and the English language. Finally, the medium of photography helps to bring to the classroom images of specimens and formations from millions of years ago. Peter Behrens' 1907 AEG building demonstrated that art and industrial design--using concrete and steel--could very well generate artistic expression.
Early masters such as Durer and Holbein took the woodcut to great heights, but it was quickly obscured by other print forms of engraving, etching, lithography, etc.

As the Spanish Queen—who was present for the opening of the show-- remarked, the close relationship between Austria and Spain allowed for a rapid exchange of works of art by Velasquez, the court painter in Madrid. Basic design concepts, such as form and composition, material and technique, perspective and foreshortening, proportion and scale, line, color, and texture have all been included. Early photographers represented include Nadar, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Julia Margaret Cameron. Scholars Resource offers a good cross section of works ranging from early examples of painting in wet plaster from Minoan Crete to recent works painted within the last century (Diego Rivera), ideally suited to teaching this unique form of painting in art history. The set also includes coverage of the National Museum of the American Indian, and early European documentation of Native American cultures in the form of paintings and engravings. Images from Psalters, Bibles, Gospels, and Books of Hours offer a variety of historiated initials and marginal decoration.
After the Fall of the Wall, Berlin once again is Germany's capital and center of culture and international acclaim, of modern architecture and political influence.
Women like Julia Margaret Cameron were notable among the early practitioners of the new medium of photography. Egyptian wall painting was done directly on limestone or on a coat of dried plaster unlike the Minoan and later Roman wall paintings which were worked in true fresco form in wet plaster. Architectural models are well represented, and accompanied with images of the completed buildings. Launched by Mao and General Lin Biao, Mao’s second-in-charge and designated successor, in a speech from the Tiananmen Rostrum on August 18, 1966, the Destruction of the Four Olds was one of the first campaigns of the Cultural Revolution. Interrupted by World War I, Gropius in 1919 founded the Bauhaus in Weimar in the hope of reconciling fine arts and applied arts. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw a resurgence of the woodcut with artists like Gauguin and Munch exploring new techniques and aesthetics in an old medium, to be continued by the Die Brucke artists who saw the expressive power of brutal knife lines and gouges in a block of wood.
The exhibition--and Scholars Resource’s Image Set--begins with Velazquez'early years in Seville in the studio of his teacher Francisco Pacheco (whose daughter he married), his exploration of genre subjects (bodegones) and religious paintings.
The collection includes landscapes, portraits, architecture, nudes, and even documentation of scientific experiments. Images from secular texts range from Botanicals to maps to Aztec Feather Artisans; and treatises on surgical instruments and 'ingenious mechanical devices' to the Silk industry. As the 19th century advanced, and certainly into the 20th century, female artists were more apparent as practitioners of significant artistic styles and movements. In this set Roman wall paintings are divided into the four styles described by August Mau in the 19th century; while some of our Egyptian examples are facsimiles by Egyptologists Norman and Nina Davies and Charles K.
Other examples include funerary models, religious or ceremonial paraphernalia, and historical or cultural reconstructions as in the artists' renditions of the Tower of Babel. His style of functional building was reflected in the many workers housing projects that Bruno Taut, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and others built in Berlin, Stuttgart and other metropolises. This Scholars Resource Set (listing the artists alphabetically) exhibits the range of skill and creativity of not only the pioneering female artists, but those working today, who no longer need to be qualified as 'women artists'. Hans Meyer's leadership (1928-30) resulted in important commissions and financial gain and his emphasis on mathematical accuracy may well have meant the beginning of pre-fabricated architectural components.
1623), Velazquez was free to develop his rich style of portraiture culminating in the Las Meninas. Increasingly political difficulties intervened until finally the Dessau Bauhaus closed in 1930. Documentation of diverse sites range from Roman monuments in rural France to the spiritual center of exotic Jerusalem in the Middle East.
Mies van der Rohe attempted to re-open the School in Berlin in 1932 but after only ten months Nazi politics and pressure resulted in the closure of the Bauhaus but not in the International style.
